Rmove the two screws holding the blower in place and slide it out. With the power off, rotate the wheel and inspect for debris or an impingement. If everything turns easy, you have a bad motor or start capacitor. If you have rubbing, adjust the wheel. If the motor will not turn, replace it.

Looks like an older system. Tighten all of your electrical connections. Inspect all of the low voltage wiring for any insulation cracks or other damage. The problem you describe sounds like something is either "shorting" or breaking down electrically. Unless the technician can catch it while he/she is there, it will be difficult to determine exactly what is happening. You might get lucky and resolve it yourself by tightening all electrical connections and reinsulating (use electrical tape) any damaged low voltage wire connections. If you continue to experience problems, get the tech. Hopefully the last company you used will be willing to work with you on the bill considering they were unable to "catch" it during the last visit.
Without being there with toolbox in hand, I hope you find this information very helpful moving forward. :-)

Testimonial: "Thanks for taking the time to answer my inquiry. I'll let you know how it works out."
Measure the voltage to Terminals #2 and #3 on the main gas valve. If the voltage remains consistent while you hear the sound and the burners diminish slightly, the problem will be your main gas valve. If the voltage fluctuates, you will have to trace it back through the wiring to see through which switch you are losing it.
If this furnace has a hot surface ignitor with flame sensor, try cleaning the flame sensor with some emory cloth.
I hope you find this information to be very helpful as a good starting off point for you.
Please leave a rating. :-)
