circuit. Or it could be the circuit breaker that you have to reset is bad

I can't think of anything but a binding motor. Since it's mounted
thrust washers probably take a beating, but it wouldn't surprise me if the

held together by bent tabs, which can break if bent too often, so I drilled
for screws to replace them. I also clean and lube the thrust washers and
clean the commutator. My factory original blower started to squeal in less

When I did this I found that the plastic cover was holding in water
that had gotten into the vent intake and essentially the motor was
under water. I let it dry out overnight and it works fine now. (I
recommend that you let it dry out longer if that is the case with
yours). I also drilled a small hole in the plasti cover so if any
more water gets in it can drain out. I also cleaned out the area
between the hood and the windshield to get rid of the leaves and crap
that was clogging up the fender drain holes.
