Hello - What exactly is your concern? Are you trying to verify how to replace or repair the motor? Usually this type of information is not release to someone who is not a technician (or to a consumer) and it is very rare to find enough information to do it yourself. Typically this is something that you want a certified professional to install for you due to safety and liability reasons. They also usually warranty their labor just in case something else may turn out to be the root cause of your initial problem and it does work out better to your advantage. Consider contacting your manufacturer for more details on who in your area can properly install this part. (part usually have a 30 day warranty with tech). I would suggest contacting your manufacturer to provide you a listing of authorized technicians in your area whom may guide you through this process.

Check fan cage to make sure it turns freely. Check voltage to IFM make sure it is correct for the application. Make sure the motor turns the fan cage in the correct direction. IFM will have high and low speed make sure when you change from fan on to auto that the motor changes speed. If you have an amp draw meter check to see when running the motor pulls the amp load it is rated for. Recheck all wiring.

Room blower motor is not working properly and the blower motor housing is too hot to touch. When power is disconnected from blower motor, blower motor housing cools.

I would say the motor is froze/locked up, Need to buy a new motor, all the information is on the motor itself. if this motor does have a capacitor I would replace that first. Good Luck Tim

My fan isn't running but I can feel cold air leaking out of my vents. Is it frozen or is my fan motor just dead?

If the indoorcoil is froze, the insulated suction line would be froze as well. If you are able to change the
blower speeds Black-High Speed with Blue-Med High
and nothing changes you could have a blower problem

Blower will not kick on

The a-coil froze because of no air flow.
Let the motor cool down.
Check the capacitor to the blower motor.
If it is good, replace the blower motor.

2005 caravan heater fan quit.Unable to find the propper fuse.

There are several postings for the same problem on this web site. From my experience it will usually be the blower motor or the commonly replaced resistor block ( $20.00 from the dealer) located behind the glove compartment box. You can remove this resistor block easily if you have tools and check for corrosion or a broken resistor wire. If this looks good it's then probably the blower motor, but you should do a voltage check right at the blower motor. If the voltage going to the blower motor looks good, try tapping the blower motor with a small hammer or the plactic end of a screw driver with the fan switch in the jigh position maybe moisture got in it and froze it up. Good luck and keep us posted.
