The HVAC blower motor may stop working at one or more speeds due to a faulty blower motor resistor block. Our technicians recommend to confirm the resistor is at fault by first checking the operation of the switch.

    Same..the blower only works on high. Good heat, just can't reduce. My daughter is hard of hearing, and it makes it difficult when she can't turn it down to hear a conversation. Very annoying!

    blower stopped working and intermittenly works at a very low speed. Resistor pack was not the problem. We are still trying to figure out what is wrong.

    The first two speeds quit working on the blower so I only have the upper speeds, which sometimes are to high for my newborn.

  • Blower only works on the highest speed. Also when the temp is turned to warm it stays warm even when the temp is turned to cool.
