    I would say that it is a safe bet that your flux capacitor is bad.

    No airflow through the coil means no heat to absorb....... yes, turn everything off now and get it fixed.

    You obviously haven't heard of the box fan in place of the blower door trick.

    Can't you just set a box fan at the return and let it blow into it? That will spin the blower wheel as well.

    I still say that the first thing that you need to check is the flux capacitor. I bet out of 100 blowers that I have seen not working, 90 of them had a defective flux capacitor.

    Everybody on this site knows this but don't want to help you out do to the rules of the site. We aren't allowed to help do it yourselfers.

    But you seem like a nice guy so I don't mind bending the rules to help you out.

    If the above doesn't solve your problem you might have to use your tricorder to check out the isolinear chip. But if you don't have the proper equipment, you will probably have to call a professional.

    Oh, by the way, I wouldn't listen to what these other guys are telling you. They are just blowing smoke out of their but.

    You are welcome
    Now you owe me a beer!!!!


    Keep us posted
