    I contacted the parts store and they arent' able to find a temp limited switch. Could it be called by a different name?
    I tried to locate it on the motor and couldn't I haven't been successful in finding a diagram that shows it either.

it sounds vacuum related the fan knob relates to the fan motor (electrical) the vacuum switches relate to the heater controls hope that makes sense

I have ran into the same problem, there may be something has got into fan cage. remove fan motor and investagate to see if it is blocked, or if fan is going bad. it is behind glove box, to remove. remove lower right dash insulator panel from under glove box. slide bcm aside for room to get at fan motor. remove 3 screws from fan motor, and remove fan after disconnecting wiring. the blower motor resistor is beside fan motor. the resistor will make ya lose 1 and 2 speeds. for it is a 5 step resistor.

Heater fan only works on high after replacement of heater core


It's very possible the fan motor has quit. The squealing noise is caused from motor bearing failure. As the bearings wear out or dry up the motor is harder to turn and require more current to run the motor. On lower speeds, the motor runs off a series of resistors that reduce the amount of voltage and current so the fan runs a lower speeds. If the bearings are worn, there is not enough voltage or current to turn the motor and that's probably the humming noise your hearing.
Good observation by the way.
Let me know.

Ac & heater


Disconnect the wire from the fan, turn the car on, test the voltage between the connector to ground (chasis) on all fan speed settings (high,med,low). If you have voltage at all settings (approx. 12.3V on high and less as the speed setting is lower) then replace the fan motor (about $50 at autozone). If there is not voltage on all speed settings you will also need to replace the blower motor resistor (about $12 at autozone). The whole process takes about 20 mins.

2005 jeep grand cherokee 4.7 Ac fan lost the 3 lower settings, only the high setting still worked. For a while the lower fan settings would just come on, and then go out again. The high fan setting...


Well, the blower resistor handles the lower speeds and the hi-blower relay handles the hi speed only. if the fan still works on the lower speeds then the resistor is bad. if the fan doesn't work at all then your motor has failed and or burn't the relay out also. if you can get your blower to start by hitting the kick panel above the pass. side foot area then the motor is bad. if you are handy enough to drop the kick panel and access the motor then check the connections at the motor. Then wack the motor and see if it comes on then. you will most likely find the problem if you follow those simple rules above. Good luck.
