SOURCE: dryer doesn;t spin

Sounds like the belt has broken. The terrible noise was probably the belt slipping until it gained traction.

Check to see if the fan has a capacitor on the motor...
Often when you get a hum and no spin it is because of a bad cap.
Also check that the fan spins freely, it may need some oil...
If it does need oil, first work in some WD-40 and then some light small motor oil at each end of the motor...

If this is new piece and has not worked you need to recheck teh wiring before the unit is suspected.
Check the seperate line for the light circuit. If the connections are correct then the light unit can be faulty . If this is new get a replacement.

Interior fan want work

First, check the fuse block for an open / blown fuse. You didn't provide the make & model of your car, so you'll have to find out which fuse is used for the fan. Replace any open / blown fuse found with the correct size as determined by the manual. If it still doesn't work, keep reading:

Many cars and trucks use what is called a "resistor pack" that is used to determine various preset speeds for the heater & A/C blower or fan. When you switch the fan from one speed or another, power is passed through a different value of the resistor - which changes the voltage to the fan motor. The different voltages provides different speeds.

The resistor pack is usually the problem if the fan works at one or more - but not all speeds. It can be the problem if the fan doesn't work at all either. The location of the resistor pack varies with vehicle make and model, but is often very close to the motor itself and accessible from the passenger compartment. Consulting with a employee at an auto parts store or Chilton's (or similar) auto repair manual should get you to the right spot. Resistor packs are relatively inexpensive at about $25 or less.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Turned on interior fan speed and heard a loud noise, then nothing. Air speed now doesn't work.

More than likely the squirrel cage fan attached to the blower motor has broken or come apart causing it to bind up in the housing making the vehicle blow a fuse. Check the fuse block for the blown fuse then try the switch for the fan speed again if no noise, you may want to inspect the fan for damage.

You need to balance the fan blades. There should have been some small metal pieces that came with the fan. I you can not find the pieces, your local Lowe's or Home Depot carries them in the lighting area.

Are you fully charged though? If you don't have a full charge the clutch will not kick in.

Light works, fan does not

Is it a multi speed fan and it doesn`t work on any speed?? Does the fan spin easily?? If not, the bearings have failed. If you can spin it easily, you`ll probably find that the ground wire in the coil has burned away in the connector or within the field coil windings themnselves. If it was just one of the coils, you would be missing one speed only but if it doesn`t work at all, it sounds like the grounding coil that`s failed. Ian
