When I turn on the blower fan for heat or air, I can hear the blower motor spinning but there is no (or very little) air coming through the vents.

Replaced blower motor but there is no air coming from vents. What could the problem be?

Assuming the squirrel cage is attached to the motor shaft, my guess would be a blend door problem.

I just need to know where the blower motor is so I can change it. The air gets hot but just doesn't blow out well at all. Is the blower motor the problem?

Never been in any car, including a suzuki sprint which is the same car as a Geo, that you could not hear the spinning fan noise when you turned it on. so if you are turning the fan on and you hear nothing either the fan or the fan switch is bad. neither can be too hard to replace in that little car, get a repair manual for a few bucks on ebay. i would do the fan first as it is most likely the bad part and easiest to replace.

No air coming out of vents when air is turned on. the fuses are all ok

2 things come to mind: can you hear the fan turning?

if not check for power at fan location. If there is power and the fan isnt spinning replace the fan. If there is no power
there is a problem with the fan circuit which includes wiring fuse (you stated were ok) and Fan speed switch (might be a module)

Or there is a blockage it is possible for your heater core and evaporator to plug up with dust .

1992 240 Gl, Windshield air vent/defroster has almost no output it is spring and no one answered either of you? Is there a large volume of air when fan is on high? Where is it going? Or do you not hear anything from the fan? The 240 has an awesome heater. On high it would heat a small home! If no sound, your blower motor is dead assuming the fuse is good. If you hear the fan blowing, figure out where the air IS going. Note that the only way to turn the dash vents off is with the white Oreo dials. To defrost, only that button should be pressed in and dash vents off. Behind the dash switches there is a maze of short vacuum hoses. Often times, people monkey w/ these and reconnect them incorrectly. Haynes manual or Chilton's have proper diagrams. It could be that the vacuum hose coming from the manifold and entering the firewall is split on the under side and not visible, also.

S40 fan blower

well... there is the chance your motor is blown.... pop your hood and find the motor... normally on passenger side mounted inside your firewall by the a/c evaporator canister... un plug the wiring harness and run a test wire and touch it to the prong on the motor... if you hear it come on then the motor is good and you most likely have a wire messed up somewhere
