Your blower motor is burned up. You need to get it replaced. Cost of motor, depending make and model and geographic location is approx 85.00 -100.00 figure roughly 2 hours for labor.

Blower motor may be burning out.

Why would your car defroster smell like burning rubber?

Defrost uses the a/c, if it doesn't smell the same with a/c only on. The smell is coming from the blower motor. Bmw's for example have a problem where the blower blade contacts the plastic housing and causes it to rub/melt.

If the noise is a squeaking sound, it could be coming from the bearings in the blower fan. It could also be coming from a worn bushing or bearing in the blower motor.

Why does the central air blow out low force of air that isn't that cold and then it trips the breaker?

I first guess would be something is blocking the fan/ blower motor. The filter could've been pulled into the blower fan and restricting the air flow causing the fan to pull to many amps and trip the breaker. The air coming through the duct at a room temperature could be the heaters in the air handler is coming on. First verify the outdoor unit is operating. Tron

99 Mercury Villager estate and a burning smell is coming from your heater?

I had this issue over the winter....had a mechanic tell I needed to take the blower fan out and clean it. Apparently some mice built themselves a home in my fan. The smell is likely the fan burning up because it is trying too hard to work.

Why heat or air isn't workning?

Can you feel anything coming out of the vents. Also if you turn on the dial that controls the speed of the blower, and you dont feel anything coming out then you need a fuse or blower motor or mabe a resister for the blower motor. I would have to say that 8 out of 10 times its usually the blower motor resistor. Hope this helps

Burning Wires.

In have an 07 Murray rider that when you turn the key it only clicks if i bypass the solenoid with a battery pack it will turn over what should I do?

If the click is coming from the starter solenoid then you will probably have to replace it. If the click is coming from the fuel solenoid on the bottom of the starter then you may have a safety switch problem somewhere. Determine where the click is coming from and we can go from there. First make sure that your battery is good and fully charged. By passing the solenoid will make it work with either symptom. So that won't help diagnose it.

How do you test the solenoid on your lawn tractor?

take your multimeter and set it to volts, going into the solenoid you should have anywhere from 12.2 to 14v and coming out it should not drop anymore than 1 volt. If it does the solenoid has to much resistance and should be replaced

Bad blower motor? Blown blower motor fuse? Bad fan switch? Bad blower resistor pack?

What could be wrong with the electric start on your 1999 Yamaha Grizzly?

Usually battery or solenoid. If you hear a clicking noise, it is the solenoid. find the red wire coming off the battery, follow it until it connects to the solenoid, take off the red and black wires, put new solenoid in and your done.

How can you tell if a solenoid is good on a go kart?

The wire that goes to the starter button can be connected to the power wire coming from the battery. Just tough the wire quickly. If the solenoid engages the starter, then it is ok. If not, then there is either no power from the battery of the solenoid is bad.

How do you troubleshoot the blower motor on a 1995 Ford Explorer EB if you found the cabin full of smoke and the control unit works but the new blower motor doesn't?

If the a/c compressor cools the air coming from the vents, and the heater knob makes the air hot, but the fan switch doesn't change the speed of the air coming from the vents, most likely the culprit is the fan switch itself, the blower resistor, or the blower motor. With smoke being present, there's a good chance the blower motor burned up.

What might be wrong if a 2000 Acura RL will not start. There is a clicking noise coming from one of the relays and the battery is fine?

Check the starter solenoid, starter ground resistance, and voltage out of thesolenoid when activated. If the solenoid is not clicking then the issue is either the relay or the fuse to the solenoid.

Heater core leaking?

Why doesn't 1997 Chevy Suburban's dash board blower work?

If the blower works on the defrost mode only, you could have a disconnected vacuum supply line coming from the engine. If the blower motor doesn't work on any mode or speed you could have a blown fuse, burned out blower motor speed resistor, bad switch or a bad blower motor.

Smoke coming from defrost vents 97 grandam?

Antifreeze smelling white smoke or fog coming from the vents means you have a leak in the heater core or one of the connections to it. This will only get worse and needs to be repaired before you loose all your coolant. If it smells like burning leaves or grass then it is possible that leaves have found their way into the heater box. A lot of vehicles use a resistor block that is mounted in the heater box to provide resistance for the various blower speeds. When the blower fan is on low speed - then one of these resistors is in series with the blower. The resistor will become quite hot ( normal ) and since it is mounted in the heater box, the air flow will cool it. However if leaves or other foriegn material has found its way into the heater box - these can burn if they come in contact with the resistors. Usually it will happen once and the problem goes away. If it smells like plastic burning - then you may have a wiring issue.

Heater blower not working?

There is no heater blower is a Honda. The heat created on the air condition system is heated up through a heater core. If there is no heat coming out then the heater core will be the culprit.

Why does no air at all coming out of your vents in your car?

Check the fuse as per the owners manual and if the fuse is o.k, then the blower may be faulty. check the blower then. if both of these are good, the problem is expensive.

If heater fan is working but nothing coming out would the problem be blower resistor or switch for 1999 Oldsmobile intrigue?

If the heater fan works on all speeds, then the blower motor, blower fuse, blower relay, and blower motor resistor pack are all good. If the fan runs but nothing comes out of the vents, you have a 'mode door' issue (which might include a bad control head).
