    understanding blower motor problems

    I was working on a furnace blower motor today and something i had not seen yet kept happening. You could trip the system off then back on again and the blower motor would start to run for about 2 mins then start to slow down tell it stopped. when it would stop you could not turn the blower motor tell you tripped the breaker then it would turn freely. This motor has no capacitor so what could it be relay? control board? bad motor?

    This unit was a disaster bad wiring had to replace almost all of the wiring because of a mouse nest shorted it now im worried i have done something wrong.

    Could be a worn out motor. What type of motor is it. Polyphase, Shaded pole, ECM etc?

    Well figured out why the motor was not working correctly. After pulling the motor it was obvious that it had been under water cant believe it was even working at all
