Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This is not what you want to hear but the symptom you describe is exactly what will happen if the evaporator fan motor winding fails. The question is.... did it just fail or.. was the evaporator blocked with ice due to an Automatic Defrosting Problem that resulted in a block of ice forming on the evaporator and locking the fan blades in place causing the fan winding to fail? They do just sometimes out right fail but, you have to consider all possibilites.

I can help you locate an evaporator fan replacement if you respond with your model number or you can go to and do a MODEL search near the top right side of the page using your complete model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Burning plastic smell when cold out run heater and fan inside car and out

Are you loosing radiator fluid. sometimes the heater core will rupture and you will smell burn odor. also check for strange rubbing sounds or screeching coming from the blower fan motor. or engine exhaust manifolds are hot when car is on, make sure nothing is leaning on them which will cause a burn odor. Any odor coming from outside will find it's way inside through the fresh air vents.

No heat

Turn the engine on.

Seriously, can you provide more info. I'm sure the engine is getting hot when it is running. Are you saying there is no heat inside the car when you turn the blower on? Is the blower blowing air? Is the air cold? Does it smell funny?

A little description goes a long way.

Check your heater core for leaks. Do you smell any antifreeze? If so, good sign of heatercore failure. IF air is blowing good, then heater/air blower motor is fine.
