Fan only works on high - now it's making loud noise

After living with the A/C - heater fan working on high only, it now seems to be wearing out completely. The fan makes a loud rumbling noise. Could it be the resistor or is the fan itself completely shot?

Heater and aircon not working,loud rattling noise and smoke from vent,now not power to fan


It appears your fan itself burned out. When a field coil of an electrical fan burns out it usually makes a lot of smoke. The noise could be something that fell in there that stopped the fan from turning freely. I can imagine it heated up under the strain and burned out.

When you restarted it was burnt out so hence no noise and no fan.
The smell of the smoke should also be clue. Electrical field coils burning has an awful soury type of smell.

My blower fan for the vent, AC and heater and defrost, on my 1999 Buick Regal made strange loud screaming, screeching sounds before it quit altogether. Which fuse would I replace to make it work again?


If the motor was making those kind of noises it is most likely the motor itself needs to be replaced. It turns on bushings instead of bearings and they wear out making that kind of noise when they do.Hope this helps.

When i turn my heater on (and also the ac) it makes a loud humming noise. as i turn it higher the noise gets louder. I have a 2001 chevy trailblazer.


It is possible that a stray leaf or piece of debris is stuck in the blower fan blades. This is more likely if the noise began suddenly. You will have to access the blower and remove it to inspect the blades. If their isn't an obvious debris problem, the blower fan bearing may be wearing out and getting noisy; although this noise would slowly get worse and worse every day.

My motor on my ...well what i think is my heater is extremely loud! how can i quiet it down..... it sounds like a really loud fan


Hello there:
Normally on these heater motors they can get really loud when the fan gets a lot of buildup on them which causes the fan to make a lot of noise and also it will make the bearings in the heater motor to wear out What i recommend you do is to first try to remove the heater blower cover it inside of the vehical and see if the fan has a lot of dirt anddebris around it if it does clean it out next if the fan is clean go to the heater motor and try to feel and listen to the motor and see if it is very hot if it is chances are that the bearings are getting worn which would lead to you replacing the heater motor ok
I hope that this has been very helpful for you
Best regards Michael
