So my blower motor stopped 'blowing' on my Bryant 350MAV which also has a AC unit...this happened a couple days ago. We've owned the house for 2 years..was built in 1999
I messed around at the thermostat trying both the 'heat' and 'cool'... both of which 'clicked' on but neither turned the blower motor on.
I called 2 local guys I hear advertised on the radio for a service call. They both came over yesterday while the wife was at home..and I was at work
Both guys quoted me a blower motor and 'control center' at prices consistent for what I've seen on the internet...I thought they were pretty expensive but...it is what it is.
Being in Buffalo I don't have super need for the AC thus we didn't book the job with either of them yet. So the next day (last night) I decided to download the manual and poke around a bit (yeah..i know..diy but..there are troubleshooting steps in the manual designed for a homeowner).
One thing I did try was running 115AC to the motor bypassing the control center and low and behold the blower motor has been running for about the last 24 hours without a hiccup.
So I guess my question is..what's my next move? It looks like the blower motor is fine and in both cases was a good chunk of the repair bill. Do they see something that I don't? Do I call these these guys back and ask why they are replacing the motor or... just try to find someone else?
