How a blower motor works

Blower motors are the workhorses of furnaces. Service and maintenance to them is imperative to keep your furnace running at peak efficiency. The blower motor is what pushes all of the air through the entire heating or cooling system of your home. The blower relay switch is the switch that conducts power to the motor, so it is always switching between on and off. Because of this constant action, the relay eventually wears out.

Symptoms of blower motor relay switch failure

It’s not always easy to determine when the blower relay switch has worn out. The first obvious symptom is that the blower motor itself is not working. If the blower relay switch has failed, there is not way it can turn “on” to transmit power to the motor, so the motor stops working.

Blown fuses in the blower motor are another sign of a failed blower motor relay switch. Because the job of the blower relay switch is to regulate and distribute electricity, that lack of regulation may cause a blower motor fuse to blow.
