Chevrolet Equinox Blower Motor
About Blower Motor
The blower motor is basically a fan in the heating ventilation and air conditioning ducts generally located behind the glove box. When the vehicle's heater or air conditioner is turned on, the blower motor works and pushes air through the vents.
What is the purpose of Blower Motor?
The blower motor's main purpose is to push air through your vehicle's vents when it turns on the heater or air conditioning. When the heater is turned on, the blower motor blows air across the core of the hot heater and sends that hot air through the vents and also blows air across the cold evaporator when the air conditioner is turned on and sends cold air into the vents.
How Blower Motor Works?
Blower motor functioning is easy to understand. When supplied to the blower motor, the electric current spins and in turn causes its fan to spin. Usually, the motor assembly is bolted inside a heater frame, so that the fan can blast fairly large amounts of air at high speeds. The blower motor blasts air through the heater core when the heater is turned on, and when the air conditioner is turned on the blower motor directs the air to flow through the A / C evaporator instead of the heater center. There are few controls associated with the blower engine, such as speed selector, which allows you to control motor speed.
Where is Blower Motor Located?
While each vehicle is built and configured in a slightly different way, the heater box usually includes a blower motor in your car. Blower motor is readily accessible in some cars, and hidden under the vehicle's dashboard in other. The heater box and blower engine are located within the passenger compartment of most cars, but in some cars both the heater box and the blower engine are located in the engine compartment. Large vehicles including full-size SUV's have more than one blower engine, one mounted in the front heater box and the other somewhere in the vehicle's rear.
