Evrything had been working up until last night so there wasn't any chance to check it. Of course I was just on my way out when fan decided it wasn't going to run.
I wasn't going to try and do a full diagnosis at that point so I got out the hammer
. Taking the advice offered here, I just tapped on the motor with the end of the rubber handle...tada...it started right away with very little persuation!
I had inquired at a jobber last week for a price, $130 CDN for the blower including the cage. Sounded a lot to me so I called GM yesterday, $58 CDN...that'* more like it!
