It may not be the power motor see if the motor is grounded look for a strap going to the top of the firewall it should look like a metal strap.Make sure it is tight and not broken. If this is not the problem then it may bne the reostate in the wiper control. If so see a garage or dealer.

My heater in my 1984 El Dorado Biritz quit working where do you start looking?

If by quit working you mean quit blowing, the things to troubleshoot are the blower motor, the blower motor resistor switch, or the blower motor speed selector switch. If by quit working you mean it only blows cold or warm air, the thermostat is probably stuck in the open position.

Where is the blower relay and resistor on a 1998 Silverado?

AnswerTHE BLOWER RELAY IS BEHIND YOUR GLOVE BOX. REMOVE THE BOX AND IT WILL BE TO THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BLOWER MOTOR ASSEMBLY. LOOKS LIKE A CONNECTOR. HOWEVER, YOUR RELAY MAY NOT BE BAD EVEN THOUGH IT CLICKS. 9 OUT OF 10 ITS YOUR BLOWER MOTOR... If you are talking about the blower relay for the fan motor because fan motor does not work, and you find out this is not the problem, I have a 1999 silverado where the fan motor stop working. Replaced the dash switch, did not fix the problem. Figured fan motor was bad. While attemping to remove the fan motor under the dash, there was a plastic cover attached to the motor which I removed and found a small circuit board that was showing a burnt spot. Replaced this circuit board first before going futher. This fixed my problem. Cost for the board from the dealer at the time (2005) was $30. Had I known about this board, could have save myself $165 replacing the dashboard switch.

Does blower motor stop completely because of faulty resistor?

It can. Could also be the fuse or the motor itself, the switch, relay.

The HeaterAC blower has stopped working - How do you troubleshoot the switch and repair on 1997 dodge b2500 van?

First check the fuses. If they are good then check for power at the fan motor using a test light. If you have power, replace the motor. If not then check for power at the switch. If you have power coming in but not out, replace the switch. If power comes in and out, check the resistor in the air assembly. It will be close to the motor. It will have a plug with about four wires on it. If everything else checks out, that's probably your problem.

What is the f 32 error code on the Kenmore elite washer?

The F32 error code indicates a water level pressure switch failure. This is normally caused by wiring connection problem or a failed pressure switch. If you are able to unplug the washer and remove the top panel, you can check the wiring connections between the control board and the water level pressure switch. To remove the top panel (with the washer unplugged), take out the screws at the very back of the top panel and slide the panel back and then pick it up and remove it from the top of the washer. The pressure switch is on the top of the right side panel toward the back of the washer. If the wire harness connection between the pressure switch and the control board is okay, then you will probably need to replace the pressure switch to correct this problem. The part number for the pressure switch is 8181695. You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website . The F28 error code indicates a communication error between the main control board and the motor control board at the bottom of the washer by the drive motor. A loose wiring harness connection can cause this problem. It can also be caused by a failed motor control board, a bad drive motor or a defective main control board. You may be able to check the wiring harness connection to the motor control board by unplugging the washer and removing the bottom from service panel. To remove this panel (with the washer unplugged), take out the screws at the very bottom of the panel and then pull the panel down and out to remove it. Access to the motor control board may be limited. You may be able to check to make sure that wiring connections are firmly secured on the motor control board. If the connections are okay and you continue to get the F28 error code, you may need to replace the motor control board.

How do you troubleshoot motorized windows in a car?

First try all of the windows up and down. Write down exactly which windows do not move in response to a switch. Mention whether they fail with the driver-side master switch, the switch by that window or both.If the window is up and can still make a twitch up when you hit an up switch than you know the motor and its power is OK so your list of causes is cut down significantly. Even if the motor does not make the window twitch listen carefully with the engine off and the ignition on to hear whether there is a hum coming from the motor while you hold the switch down. Again that indicates power and that a switch is OK but doesn't say anything about the motor itself.

Why does a hermetic compressor not use a centrifuugal switch like an open motor?

The hermetic compressor cannot use a centrifugal switch like an open motor because it will disrupt the start winding. Hermetic compressors work through insulated motor terminals, and not in the open.

Can a single pole switch replace a starter?

If you are talking about motor control then the answer is yes. There are two things to take into account though. One, is the motor thermally protected. This is for overload protection. On fractional HP motors it will indicate this on the nameplate. If the motor is not protected, then a fractional HP motor switch should be used. Incorporated into this switch is a heater element that the motor current flows through. If the motor current gets over the motor nameplate rating then the heater trips the switch and shuts the motor off. The other thing is that the switch has to be motor rated, currents and voltage matching the motor nameplate ratings. The specific switch has been designed to open motor currents under full motor loads. An ordinary house light switch is not motor load rated and should not be used for this purpose.

A switch that reverses the direction of the current in a motor is?

A switch that reverses the direction of the current in a motor is called a forward reverse drum switch. It is a single phase motor that turns from clockwise to counter clockwise.
