IF the element in the heater is burned out, it wont come on and you wont be able to see the broken element, you can order a new one on a chance or get a meter to test the elements resistance to see if it is bad,

My heater, Lasco ceramic model# 5805, stopped blowing hot air, just blows room temp. air. What might be the problem?

Try tracing the heating element circuit and you might find a loose connection, a faulty temp sensor or resistor (you'll need a multimeter for this)

The fan quit working on the heater,,fuse is not blown, this happened last year to and they put a new motor in

your fan receives a certain amount of power that is usually dumbed down by a resistor( a coil inside of ceramic), in most cases that resistor blows, and on some occasions "hi" setting will still work but not in all cases. im pretty sure last time i had one replaced it was about $80 at the garage but im not sure if that included labor or not

My ac/heater stopped working yesterday (2004 Honda Accord EX). I've read posting relating to the blower motor as the possible cause. I'm not sure which fuse controls this. I wanted to check this first....

Yes, I would check the 40A fuse for 'Heater Motor' but there may be another fuse under the dash that controls the ac/heater.

I would get a fuse tester from Walmart or a parts store included with a set of various fuses.

The fuse tester can be used to quickly test all of the fuses in a particular box in maybe 5 minutes of your time.

It's like a miniature test light that goes on when an energized fuse has a break in it. This saves a lot of time and the risk of putting the fuse back where it does not belong.
Inspect/Test/Replace There are three basic types of fuses in automotive use: blade, ceramic, and cartridge.
f14-353184.jpg Blade fuse, ceramic fuse, and cartridge fuse.
Occasional fuse failure can be due to a defective fuse. Corrosion on the end of the fuse can cause failure too.
The cartridge fuse is found on most older domestic cars and a few imports. To check this type of fuse, look for a break in the internal metal strip. Discoloration of the glass cover or glue bubbling around the metal end caps is an indication of overheating.
Late-model domestic vehicles and many imports use blade or spade fuses. To check the fuse, pull it from the fuse panel and look at the fuse element through the transparent plastic housing. Look for internal breaks and discoloration.
The ceramic fuse is used on many European imports. The core is a ceramic insulator with a conductive metal strip along one side. To check this type of fuse, look for a break in the contact strip on the outside of the fuse.
A visual check of the fuses in questions can sometimes show a burned fuse. Sometimes, a fuse can blow where it cannot be seen.

All types of fuses can be checked with an ohmmeter or test light. if the fuse is good, there will be continuity through it.
When inspecting fuses, also inspect the fuse link:
  • Fuse link wire is covered with insulation that bubbles if a fuse link melts.
  • The blisters on the insulation indicate the failure in the fuse link.
  • If the insulation appears good, pull lightly on the wire.
  • If the link stretches, the wire has melted.
  • Of course, when it is hard to determine if the fuse link is burned out, check for continuity through the link with a testlight or ohmmeter.

My heater blower has stoped working on my peageot

There is a 4" long Green ceramic resistor by the blower motor, prone to fail, I think Valeo does them on the aftermarket.
