In my case, the bearing somehow wore away a grove on the pump side of the shaft in the motor causing the motor to be "sucked" to the magnets and not turn. I'm having the shaft turned down and a new sleeve put on. It should work, we'll see what happens.

A/C is cold but blower not working when I turn on I replaced blower


You may have a bad capacitor. Does it humm or vibrate very low?

Drum wont turn just humms


Open the door and check of the Tub spins freely, if so then you have a bad motor and if it does not you could have an object stuck in the blower wheel which is attached to the motor and prevents it from spinning

Goodman clt60-1 fan not working loud humm


The hum is a good indication that the fan is getting power. Therefor, the fan is locked up or it has a weak capacitor. Attempt to spin while power is off. It should spin freely. if not, you will need to replace the motor. If it spins freely, I would attempt to spin the fan blade while it is humming. If it starts running fine, it is very likely the capacitor. If not, then replace the motor.

Blower won't run


usually a "humming motor" indicates either a bad capacitor or a defective motor. With the power off try to spin the blower wheel...it should spin freely. If it is tight or wont spin and there are no obstructions stopping it (like an air filter sucked into blower or other debris) then the motor most likely is seized. If the blower wheel spins free then you may have a bad capacitor. Keep in mind, just because the blower spins easy doesn't mean the motor is good. I have had motors that are defective that dont seize up but most of the time the blower wheel will not spin free if the motor fails.

2006 gmc sierra fan wont work replaced blower resistor still won't work


Check for voltage on the fan itself- if the voltage is there then the fan motor could have cause the resistors to overheat due to it's drawing too much current. Oil the bearings with Tri Flow oil and they will spin much better- the trouble is you need to get the fan out to service it.
You can oil and recondition the Commutator and renew the fan if the brushes are not worn out if you have it on the bench.

Almost no air comes from the ac vents but fan is on high. This happens on auto and also on econ.


The 1992 was prior to Buick putting cabin air filters in so there is not a possibility it is clogged. So more than likely your blower motor is going bad or your fan control switch is bad. Does this problem occur with heating as well as AC? Does it change if you switch between blowing on floor, face, window(defrost) If it doesnt change based on location of blow and type of air temp then I would start by turning fan on high and placing head (ear ) against dash in center of console area. Have someone turn fan knob from low to high with engine OFF...After goign from low to high and back a few times you can see if the blower motor is responding to signal from switch. Listen for a whine, squeal, rattle, or humm. A whine or Humm would indicate a bad blower motor... Squeal or rattle a bad squirrel cage/fan blower blades. If you hear no noise and no perceivable change in blower speed/noise then its possible your switch is bad. Unfortunately the only way to definitely diagnose either is to pull the switch from dash and use multimeter to test for voltage change and for blower motor to pull dash. There is a digital control unit for your car as well. Although rare sometimes the wires on this can loosen or it can go bad. But since you didnt state teh fan wasnt working at all and you are getting cool air, that woudl be teh last thing to check
