You count on your heater to keep your home comfortable. One issue that sometimes causes your heater to stop working is a broken blower motor. The furnace and air conditioner can’t push heated air throughout the home without the blower motor. Our experienced technicians with Anderson Heating & Cooling are here to find the root cause of the failure and repair it.
Like any mechanical component, the motor has a limited lifespan and can wear out over time. Regular wear and tear, overheating or lack of maintenance can lead to its failure.
Tripped Circuit Breaker
Sometimes, the problem might be as simple as a tripped circuit breaker. Overloads or short circuits can cause the breaker to trip, cutting off power to the furnace blower.
The thermostat acts as the command center for your furnace and air conditioner. If it malfunctions or isn’t set correctly, it might not send the right signals to the blower motor. A worn thermostat needs immediate replacement so that the unit can function properly.
Blocked Air Filters
Air filters trap dust, debris, and other particulates from the air. Over time, these filters can become clogged, restricting airflow. When this happens, the blower has to work harder, leading to potential overheating and subsequent failure.
Faulty Control Board
The control board acts as the furnace’s brain, ensuring that all components work harmoniously. A malfunctioning control board can disrupt communication between parts, causing the blower to stop. Diagnosing a faulty control board requires professional expertise.
Some furnace blowers operate using a belt-driven system. Belts can wear out, become loose, or even snap. Regular inspections can identify belt issues before they lead to blower failure.
Wires connect various components of the furnace. If any of these wires become damaged, corroded, or disconnected, it can interrupt the power supply to the blower.
