This sound like the fan motor itself. remove the blower fan from the car(its on the passenger side below the glove compartment) and bench test it to see if its straining or maybe something jamming it. not uncommon to get a bunch of leaves in there or i have seen nests once or twice.

Heater fan not working - 30 amp HVAC fuse blows out repeatedly when replaced. Where should I look for root cause? Have dash disassembled, but can't see any bare wires anywhere behind radio/climate...


Try unplugging the blower motor, heater control unit and blower motor resistor. Replace the fuse then reconnect the items 1 by 1 and see what pops the fuse.

Heater blower went out


Normally when the blower motor goes out it has trouble a few days before and cuts in and out so I would check fuses first but I may be wrong and if the fuses are fine the I would change the motor

Vw polo heater blower only works on full power


all speeds go through the resistor except high that is why it will work on high you are bypassing the resistor if you are sure the resistor is good it has to be the blower spped switch on the dash

Heater fan not working


The three most common problems for heater fans are
  1. Burned-out blower motor resistor. This is usually located on the engine side of the firewall. Sometimes one section of the resistor is burned out but others are still good, so the blower only works on the highest speed settings. If you have a burned-out resistor, check the blower bearings to make sure they are not stiff and causing the motor to draw too much current.
  2. The blower is actually working, but either the intake vent is plugged (I've seen vehicles with the heater core completely blocked by dirt, leaves and insects that came in through the vent), or the heater door is stuck closed.
  3. The motor bearings have gone bad (see # 1). This can cause the fuse to blow, although the resistor usually fries first.
I'm not sure how your car's cabin environmental control system is fused. Check any fuse that might apply, such as Vent/AC, HTR, FAN, etc. Generally you can identify the state of a blade-type fuse by inspection without removing it. If you have a blown fuse, check the blower motor before wasting money on a new fuse that will probably blow. Like any fan, it's supposed to turn easily, and there should not be any roughness or side-slop in the bearings.
