Well, obviously you missed all the points being made. And as far as being a
professional? Went to school for it (MoTech, know who they were?). I may be
"old school" and I don't do it for a living anymore, but mechanical
principles are still the same. Bearings start getting "stiff" (freezing up),
motor starts drawing more current. That burns out that little electrical
component on the resistor block (if you've ever looked at one, you would
know what it is). "In my Intrepid..." was an "EXAMPLE" of "MY" experience.
Considering, when it first went out, I asked about it here, and Glenn and
Bill told me what it was. When it went out again, I used correct
troubleshooting techniques to determine why the resistor was going out.

: You two crack me up.
: Since Larry had a car that had worn blower motor bearings, all
: blower problems -must- be identical and related to worn motor
: Larry now claims that the bearings in the blower motor froze up.
: One would *think*
(there's that word again) that "freezing up"
: bearings would manifest themselves as reduced blower speed on
: high setting.
: Gaytripper, I didn't disagree with what Max said, on the other
: hand, Max didn't exactly condemn the blower motor from the get
: go, and for very good reason.
: Obviously neither one of you is a professional so shotgunning
: every possible related part at the problem is part and parcel.
: I also strongly suspect neither one of you or the OP have the
: necessary equipment to determine the health of the blower motor
: and as such, the appropriate action for the OP is to replace the
: blower resistor.
