Bad blower (fan) in Astec RS-PSU-450-AC1N

NMB blower BL4447-04W-B49 Cannot locate exact part. Suffix B49 indicates speed sensing fan, all I can find is fixed speed. I could replace the ball bearings, but that is assuming I can find the small ball bearings NMB L-940ZZ.

    That would keep thing cool all right, but I suspect if the power supply logic couldn't sense commanded speed changes, it would post an error on the status LED, which is what I'm trying to clear in the first place. Alpha ES-45s do that, for example, and you sometimes need to go through 3 or 4 fans to find one the logic likes. I don't know if the ASTEC supply is that smart, but I'd prefer the exact fan so I don't have to do it twice.

If you cannot find a exact replacement, don't worry, use a fixed speed fan, you only want to keep things cool, you care what speed it runs at as long as it does its job, and it is easier than replacing the bearings

Rs-psu-450-ac1n power supply override

I'm afraid you need a user and a service manual. These power supplies, deliver different voltages, but the also sense some or all voltages. If you leave an output without user, it could be the whole supply shuts down. Some knowledge of electronics is a must.

C-19 Blower motor fuse 25A located in cabin fuse box. Left hand footwell on LHD vehicles, right hand dashboard on RHD vehicles.
Start by checking blower relay B-36 in the engine compartment fuse and relay box. Remove the relay. Jumper directly from battery to pins 85 and 86. (also see here: if you dont know about relays) The relay should click Now measure across pins 30 and 87. Measurement should be 0 ohm.
Remove the blower motor(3 screws on the bottom of the unit under the passenger side dash) and connect jumper leads from the battery directly to the blower motor to see that it operates.
The blower motor resister is mounted on the ducting between the motor housing and the heating unit. Remove to test
Measure :
  • pin 1-2 : 2.4 ohm
  • pin 2-4 : 0.9 ohm
  • pin 2-6 : 0.28 ohm
  • pin 2-3 : 0 ohm

1991 subaru loyale ac fan does not work fuse is ok

is the blower motor not blowing or the fan on the radiator not working? didn't say exactly which it was. If it's the blower motor and the fuse is good, it could be one of 4 things. Broken wire, bad fan speed switch, bad resistor switch (controls fan speed) or bad blower motor. Check for power to the fan speed switch, if it's good move to the resistor switch( this switch is normally located near the blower motor and is bolted to the air box to keep it cool) Pull it out and check it. It could be burnt up. If so, replace it but before doing so check to see if your blower motor works by hooking it straight up to a power source. Most of the time on older vehicles the resistor goes out due to excessive dust build-up and finally burns the coils out or it just dies of old age.

Blower Fan not working

Could be a fuse or a relay, they are usually under the hood in the "Fuse/Relay box". The exact location should be indicated in the box cover and/or the owner's manual of the van. To try the relay, most of the relays in that box are the same, you can try switching it with another one and see if it works. But, i suspect a possible bad blower fan motor, they seem to go quite often on Econoline vans. They are a pretty simple item to replace, located under the hood on the passenger side, on the firewall. To diagnose for a bad motor, unplug the plugin on the motor, and with the key on, heater control to max, use a test light or a multimeter to check for power and ground at the plugin. Another thing, is the fan not working on all speeds, or is it working on max speed, the reason for my question is, if it's only working on max, the resistor (used for lower speeds) is probably bad. It is located close to the motor in the airbox on the passenger side of the firewall.

Air conditioning Fan

Actually the relay is not the problem here. Your blower resistor has gone bad. The resistor reduces the amount of power going to the fan, thus allowing the slower speeds. I don't know the exact location, though it is typically in the blower housing.

Heater/ Air Conditioner Blower Motor

you should relist under lincoln continental, not refrigerators. If you have electronic temp control, you should not have a resister. You should have a bower motor speed controller.

here's info for 1996 system. I don't have 1995, sorry.

A/C Blower Motor Speed Control
The A/C blower motor speed control (19E624) is located under the A/C evaporator housing, to the left of the blower motor (18527).
  • The function of the A/C blower motor speed control is to convert low power signals from the EATC control assembly to a high current, variable ground feed for the blower motor.
  • A/C blower motor speed is infinitely variable and is controlled by the electronic control assembly software and A/C electronic door actuator motor position.
  • A delay function provides a gradual increase or decrease in blower motor speed under all conditions.
Blower Speed Override Thumbwheel
Rotate the blower speed override thumbwheel more than 10 degrees to turn OFF the AUTOMATIC blower indicator and provide manual control of the A/C blower motor speed.
  • The display will show FAN and a fan symbol.
  • Rotating the wheel fully down against its lower stop locks the blower motor (18527) at its lowest speed.
  • Rotating the wheel fully up against the stop, locks the blower motor at its highest speed.
Press the AUTOMATIC button to resume automatic A/C blower motor control and remove the FAN and fan symbol from the display window.
