Blower motor thermal cut off


Obviously, you are talking about your vintage 1932 Chevy Coupe. I know that's the vehicle because you did NOT say that it WASN'T!

The fluttering sound is probably dry leaves that got stuck in the blower assembly! Suck them out with a shop vac!

Heater fan works for a while then cuts off till it cools down




What can go wrong with a blower motor?
There are several things that may cause your blower motor to stop working. The simplest cause would be a blown fuse. If you replace the fuse and it quickly blows again, then you probably have an electrical short. Disconnected wires on the exterior of the blower motor can also cause it stop working, and if your blower motor gets dirty, it can get clogged or muddy which keeps the fan blades from spinning.

How do I test my blower motor?
When you are troubleshooting your blower motor, it is best to start by running the air conditioning or the heater to see if you can hear the sound of the fan. If you can hear the fan, it could be clogged or corroded with dirt. If you do not hear the fan, then you may have a bad resistor, blown fuse, or a loose wire. Next, you should replace any blown fuses in your car's fuse panel and try to start the blower motor again. If another fuse blows right away, you have an electrical short. If it doesn't blow out and the motor is still silent, then something else is wrong. In the case where the fuse lasts for a little while as the fan spins but then the fuse blows again, that usually means you need to replace the brushes on the motor. Finally, you can pull the motor out and visually inspect it for loose wires. If you don't see any and still want to test, try hooking it up to the battery to see if the motor will start. If all these tests still find you with a dead blower motor, it's definitely time to replace it.

How do I replace it?
Usually located under your vehicle's instrument panel, the blower motor can be removed and replaced. You'll need to disconnect the blower motor connector and remove the retaining screws holding it into place. Detach the fan retainer clip from the motor shaft that's located in the center of the blower wheel. You may need to save that piece if you are not replacing the whole motor. Inspect your new motor to ensure nothing is broken and the blades can properly spin. Re-attach the fan retainer clip, the retaining screws, and the connector so you can test your new blower motor out.

Intermitent fan problem with 1997 Mercedes E320


HI, disconnect the wiring at the blower motor, connect a positive and negative directly from the battery, if the blower works everytime you connect direct power, the problem is somewhere else.

Blower fan stops working and then starts again


My suggestion is replacing your wiring going to the resistor which is acdelco part number PT1231. I have had the problem of speeds 1,2, and 3 intermittently working while 4 always worked. Afterreplacing this part, all of my fan speeds work all of the time.
