RE: HELP! Blower OK... But doesn't run!
I did manage to get the SOB out. Had to cut a little plastic (cable wouldn't pass) and there is one screw that i had missed, right in the middle. (3 screw at the front if anyone else needs to know!!)
I re-re-wired and shorted across the regulator (removed from heat sink - don't try this at home!!!). The motor fired up just fine. After about 5 secs (just so nice to see it running) I let go and assume that the regulator is the problem.
Interesting though, the regulator was MAD HOT!! I figure if the fan stops moving the regulator burns out! Also for those who follow, there is a 1/2" spike in the bottom of this puppy that prevents it from being slid sideways. Not sure how you're supposed to get it out but you probably just have to struggle like I did!
So if anyone has a blower that is not working, FIX IT BEFORE IT COST YOU MORE MONEY!
Thanks again Peter,
