Blower Motor not Reliable in HEATING mode - ArcoAire GUG070A012N

06 December 2011 - 05:50 PM


I have an ArcoAire GUG070A012N - it runs cold just fine even though its 15+ years old, and the blower turns on every time when the cold cycle is on.

Problem is HEAT - the thing fires, the themostat kicks it on, the elements light up but then nothing happens with the blower motor. I can reach an in and spin the fan and it kicks on sometimes, but not always. It will typically run 4-5 cycles before it croaks again and I have to manually kick-start it.

Seems to me it's not the fan motor b/c it runs properly when the A/C is on, just not when the heat is on.

how else should I trouble shoot this?
