Your problem is probably a part called the heater resistor block or board. When this part burns out you will only have high speed on the fan. On my 1999 voyager it is located on the firewall and it snaps in a hole in the firewall. This is under the hood behind the alternator.
Mine had a multi pin black plug plugged into it. Unplug the plug and
you should be able to pull the block out insert new block and plug plug back in and it should come to life.

SOURCE: Looking to replace Patton fan motor, model 1010mp, style TJ74SP

If you are up to disassembling your motor, you will find a thermal cutout near the windings which frequently fails open. Replacements are readily available, or just jumper it out. If the bearings are shot or the windings burned you're out of luck. Trust me, a new motor will cost more than a whole new fan.

If you locate and procure a switch, you can more than likely replace it yourself. Get a switch of like and you can see what you have to deal with, Always disconnect the electricity before you work on it Good Luck. It really isn't a big deal to do.If you can take and send pics by e-mail I can walk you through. [email protected]

Your blower resistor may be wearing out or corrosion setting in. The part is cheap and you can probably replace it. This link shows where an 01 is located. Yours may be in the same spot on on the engine bay side of the passenger firewall. Check with your auto parts store also for location.

The blower motor is located behind the glove box. Open the glove box and at the left rear is a wire catch mechanism, push on this and the box will move further down. The motor and blower motor resistor module can be accessed here. Does the blower work on any of the speeds? If yes, then suspect the resistor module. If no, check for a blown fuse or bad motor.

Dayton 3e226e fan runs but burner will not light

Hello, since the inducer motor is running this can be either a bad ignitor or a pressure switch problem. Jump the pressure switch to see is the furnace will run, if it does there is a problem such as clogged vnt pipe, tubing clogged from switch to inducer motor, or the switch itself is bad. If it does not run most likely a bad ignitor

I have a Rheem furnace rglh-10nbrjr that motor runs but flame does not light. If I turn up thermostat, the fan comes on and I hear a click after 10 or 15 seconds. I see no spark or anything from electronic...

Hi, you shouldn't smell any gas until the pilot flame is etablished. The sequence of operation is the small inducer motor will start on a call for heat, Then on the motor you should have a poly type tube, clear, that runs over to a pressure switch. It is a round silver part that the hose connects to, The pressure from motor closes a set of contacts and you will hear a click. This is telling the electronic ignition to start to spark and light the pilot or hot surface ignitor, which ever you have. If you have no spark and the pressure switch is closed, you have a faulty ignitor board or module. To check the switch, it will have 2 wires going to it. Just take a piece of insulated wire and touch across the 2 terminals. It should fire up. If not, the module or board, ignitor has failed. You will need to take all of the numbers from it amd go to a appliance parts house to get a new one. Don't forget how it wires back in, or you will have more problems.

The reset button should be a small round red button that you just push in to reset. If the induced draft motor comes on as soon as thermostat calls for heat then the next thing to check is the ignitor. It may be a hot surface or spark ignitor.It should glow or spark depending on the type,and you should be able to see it clearly. The ignitor should be located by pilot assembly right beside burners. If the ignitor does not work the furnace willnot procede in lighting sequence. If ignitor is not working then it must be replaced. Usually this is pretty easy if you can get repair parts.Remove screw holding ignitor in place and disconnect wires. Install new one and try it. Good luck. Thanks

Hello, I have an achiever 90 plus ruud, when I turn it on the flame ignites but after 3 seconds it goes out, it does this 3 times than turns off. Help?

Are you saying that main burner is coming on or pilot /hot surface ignitor or spark ignitor ? If your induced draft motor is coming on then a few seconds later your main burner is coming on for 3 seconds and then shutting off but blower motor is not coming on I would look at flame sensor to make sure it is telling the fan motor to come on. Normally they will try three or four times and then lock out. One easy way to check blower motor is to set your thermostat to fan on. Fan motor should come on and run till you shut it off.hope this help you.

Check for 24 volts across the two terminals on the gas valve when the ignitor glows. If yes, bad gas valve or blockage in the gas train. If no, bad ignitor or circuit board. Even if the ignitor glows, it still may be bad and not sending the proper signal to the board. If you jump the R and G terminals on the circuit board, does the fan still only run for 90 seconds? If so I would say replace the board.

Fan blows, gas flows, ignitor lights, gas burns only for a few seconds then kicks off, repeats a few times then shuts down

Check the circuit for the draft inducer fan motor. The centrifugal switch in the motor may be shutting down. This stops power to the gas valve.

No heat from unit. Hear ignitors start but no airflow in house

well i need to know if the fan comes on at all if not then it could be a bad motor or board which is not uncommon but if the fan does come on and then flames go out and fan stays running could be high limit check to make sure in the bower compartment there are no wires disconnected from the blower sometimes when changing the filter it is possible to knock the wire off the board

Check your furnace for power. will be 4 wires. power ground and 2 thermostat wires. Check for power at the time delay relay, if you have power there check for power going in the fan motor, if power in motor wire, motor is bad. If no power in motor wire and power going to circuit board take the 2 thermostat wire apart and wrap the 2 together comimg from the thermostat. Fan will stat in about 30 seconds. If it does you need a control kit in the ac. But sounds to me like you have a furnace problem.

No heat but fan works L5600

If you can see any sign of a crack in the coil (Hot Surface Ignitor/HSI) it is probably bad.
If the inducer fan starts (the small fan) and you don't see the ignitor glow, it is almost definitely the ignitor.
Hope this helps
