    I have the same unit, the same problem. I popped the cap from around the switch, then removed the cap/cover (just 2 or 3 phillips head screws from the ends). I found that the switch's threading that held the washer (which holds the switch secure) had broken off, leaving less that enough threading to be grabbed by the washer. Now I just have to replace the switch!

Ieplaced the resistor to the blower motor Blower motor still does not work. Do i need to replace the blower motor or switch

If the Blower Motor does not operate on any speed, the blower resistor is most likely NOT the problem. To find out if it is the blower motr or the switch, test for power at the blower motor connector. If there is power the blower motor should be replaced. If there is no power, there could be several reasons for this including the blower control switch, the blower motor circuits or even a problem with your ignition switch.

The blower will quit blowing

If this is aair handler/ Gas or Electric.
1) Shut power off
2) Remover blower door and locate blower motor
wires and then reconnect them. Restore power If
that does not cure them problem then:

1) Shut power off and remove blower door again, find
the thermostat wires and remove the wire from the
G-Terminal. Restore power if that cures the
problem, then you need to make sure the
thermostat wires are not touching either at the
thermostat or between furnace and thermostat.
If that does not work then:

2) It could be the high temperature limit that is
inserted into the unit above the burners usually.
If it is failing the switch opens up and the blower
will operate on its own.

3) Turn power off and locate this switch, put a jumper
wire or connect the two leads that go to this
switch, restore power, blower should not be
operating. The High limit switch is bad

Washing machine displays FH fault and water tap closed light comes on,water taps are both on and working correctly.

? If there is no water in the unit: —Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way. —Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves. —Verify inlet valve operation. ? If there is water in the unit: —Verify drain pump operation. —Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and properly connected to tub and pressure switch. 1. Verify there is not a siphon problem. 2. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 3. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves, pressure switch, drain pump, flow meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU). 4. Check all hoses for possible leaks. 5. Plug in washer or reconnect power 6. Verify pressure switch operation. 7. Verify flow meter operation by blowing air through the part and measuring the resistance. 8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.

The indoor blower motor is sometimes a 3 speed motor.The heat usually works on low or medium speed.But the a/c is usually on high speed,this gives greater air flow across the evaporator coil to give you better cooling,also better air flow at ducts.These speeds are usually wired through a relay in the inside unit (air handler).They can be changed.If you go to thermostat and put the fan switch to "on" the blower should operate on "high" speed.With the fan switch set to "auto"the operation will determine the fan speed.Hope this helps.

Intermittent blower operation on Goodman AC/heat pump-outside unit comes on -sometimes blower does-sometimes not-can switch Tstat off then on and blower will operate

I believe this to be either a bad, miswired, or loose connections on the thermostat or thermostat wires. If this is not the problem then a bad circuit board is probably your issue. A licensed technician can use a amp meter and multi meter to trace this problem. Good Luck.
