Parts are few for these machines (all I found was the blower tube). That being said, you can carefully cut off and remove the faulty male plug and replace it with a repair piece like you would add onto a damaged extension cord (outdoor type). They are made of plastic, but are fairly sturdy. Just carefully cut away the old male connector (the shrod isn't really necessary and remove the wiring from it. After purchasing the male-type plug replacement, rewire it and you will be set to go. To eliminate the male cord and the female end of the extension cord you will use from pulling apart when in operation, just loop the female end cord around the cord of the blower and it will hold in place.

Where can I get blower motor circuit diagram?


you don't need a diagram . you system is so simple you only have 3 things in it and one never fails.
you have a resistor that if it fails it never works again , so that's out
the motor can be failing and then work again .
but fords most common is a blower switch ,it melts .
so remove the switch and then remove the plug(if you can it might be melted to the switch) and look inside there to see if it's deformed , the plug might be deformed as well as the wires burnt.
start there first.

1996 chevy tahoe 4 w d 5.7l. recently replaced fan speed switch, resisitor and blower motor. worked fine for a few days and now nothing. all fuses are good. replaced resistor relay today. all ground...


Take a good look at all the connectors, especially at the blower motor switch and speed resistor. I find many of these connectors will be slightly deformed or melted from overheating and will not work even when plugged into a new switch or resistor...or may work for a bit then quit. If you find a bad connector the best thing to do is to replace the connector with a new one [they have to be spliced in] . Hope this helps and good luck!

Trouble shooting climate control intermitting blower problem # 5 speed has not been working for about 3 months # 1 2 3 4 speed is now working intermittingly


GMC has an ongiong problem with the blower motor resistor, look under the dash on the passenger side and you will see the blower housing, unplug the wireing harness that feeds it and look at the plug carefully you will see that the third pin from the left has been over heated and is melted a little. the repair is quick and easy go to your local parts store and purchase a new resistor and a replacement wireing plug, you will have to cut the old plug off and splice the new one in, replace the resistor and your done. I would recomend that the wires be and spliced cut one at a time so as to insure that they are put in the right location.

My Heater Blower motor stopped working on my 2007 Chevy Suburban


you will need to check 3 places for this. 1 check the plug going to the blower motor for being hot and melting.2 check the plug going to the blower motor resistor for being hot and melting. 3 check behind the heater control head itself for being hot or melting.chevrolets are bad about these three places not making good contact and melting the connectors.

Toro blower model 51591 electrical prong melted. help!


The answer is wrong. This model and other Toro blowers with the plug built into the body (as opposed to the new design with plug on cord) has this problem when the plug does not completely mate with the cord. This happened to mine too. Unfortunately Toro does not provide a replacement part. HOwever, perhaps the new designed cord will fit as a replacement, but I am unsure of this. When my plug melts completely I will try that.
