I am assuming you are talking about a Natural Gas or LP furnace. The blower motor is powered by a separate 120 volt circuit, so flipping the 240 volt breaker for the furnace will not shut it off. There should be a regular light switch at the furnace that will turn off the blower for servicing the unit. When you take the cover off the unit, there should be instructions on how to re-set the igniter. If it won't re-set, try shutting off the gas for a few minutes, then turn it back on and then reset. If none of this works, and you can't find the owners manual, call a service technician.

    I forget to mention that you might want to check your thermostat. If it has gone bad, it may be the cause of the blower continuing to run and the igniter not working.

2003 trailblazer blower not working


Are you saying the blower motor would run intermittently and then just stopped working? My first thought is faulty blower motor, I've seen faulty blower motors that would run intermittently. Any motor that uses brushes, you can tap on the motor to see if it will start working, that is a sign of bad motor brushes, replace the blower motor. There could be other issues?
Did you check the blower fuse, not only check the fuse, check the fuse circuit for voltage, use a test light. Check for applicable hvac trouble codes. With hvac on, check for voltage and ground at blower motor wiring connector, if both are good and no blower action, suspect the blower motor.

This is a down flow unit. There is no pressure valve on this unit. Here is all the parts on this unit.
1. Manual - reset, when used.
2. Blower and blower motor
3. Relief box also known as a exhaust flue.
4. Gas valve control knob or electric switch, ON/OFF
5. Gas Valve
6. Gas burner
7. Ratting plate
8. Blower door safety switch
9. Blocked vent safeguard tube and switch
10. Gas Manifold
11. Manual limit switch (2)
12.Hot surface ignitor
13. Flame sensor
14. Inducer blower motor
15. Control board with relays and transformer.
That is all the parts. The first thing the heater gets a call from the thermostat to the control board marked W. The board sends 24v to the inducer fan relay which makes and causes the inducer fan to come on now there is a small tube that runs from the inducer fan box to a switch when the switch makes it sends power to the board which proves you have cleared the exhaust flue then the flat surface ignitor starts to glow and then gas valve opens and fires. now if this tube is stopped up the heater will not fire and will lock the unit out. Also if the flue is stopped up with trash it will do the same thing. If you are not familiar with gas heating units you should call a service company out and check out the system there is a lot of things that need to be checked out every heating season as to keep you and your family safe.

A certain sequence of events has to occur to start normal operation. My furnace would start the stack blower which would then run forever without the furnace starting up. The service tech replaced the stack blower controller and the ignitor to get things running right again. Remember that some stages of startup are temperature dependent. For example, the burner has to heat the bonnet enough to close a thermal switch and turn on the main.blower.

Blower motor 2009 saturn vue doesn't come on, fuse is good, what next?


DISCONNECT THE BLOWER MOTOR POWER LEAD. RUN A "FUSED" (20AMP) HOT JUMPER WIRE TO POSITIVE SIDE OF CONNECTOR,THEN TO BATTERY POSITIVE, THEN RUN A NEG. WIRE BACK TO NEG. AT BATTERY (TO INSURE A FULL CIRCUIT).
IF BLOWER WORKS...YOU HAVE A SWITCH,WIRING, OR FUSE/CIRCUIT BREAKER PROBLEM.NEXT CHECK FOR POWER INTO BUT NOT OUT OF SWITCH...IF THIS IS THE CASE THE SWITCH IS THE PROBLEM.

2004 Keeprite High Efficiency Furnace won't heat.


Do you have the model number? There is a problem with either the blower motor sensor or the ignitor. When the furnace get a signal for heat, the blower motor comes on and then the ignitor. If either one of those fail then it stops, waits and tries again. When the tech was there, if he did not replace any parts then he did not do his job. You can call them back out because the issue was not resolved or you can post the model number for us.

With the blower turned on, try tapping the blower motor with something hard. If it restarts, then this is a failing motor. If it doesn't start, then check power to the motor. If it has power, then the motor has failed completely.

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.
