About Blower Motor
The blower motor is basically a fan that is usually located behind the glove box in the heating ventilation and air conditioning ducts. The blower motor activates and pushes air through the vents when the vehicle's heater or air conditioner is turned on.
What is the purpose of Blower Motor?
The main purpose of the blower motor is to push air through the the vents of your vehicle when the heater or the air conditioning is turned on. When the heater is turned on, the blower motor blows air across the hot heater core and sends that hot air through the vents and also when the air conditioner is turned on it blows air across the cold evaporator and sends cold air to the vents.
How Blower Motor Works?
It is easy to understand the working of blower motor. When the electric current is supplied to the blower motor, it spins and in turn causes its fan to spin. The motor assembly is bolted typically inside a heater box, so the fan is able to blow relatively large volumes of air at high velocities. When the heater is turned on, the blower motor blows air through the heater core and when the air conditioner is turned on the blower motor channels its air to pass through A/C evaporator instead of heater core. There are few controls that are associated with the blower motor, such as speed selector which allows you to control the speed of the motor.
Where is Blower Motor Located?
Although every vehicle is designed and configured a little differently, a blower motor in your vehicle can be typically found in the heater box. In some vehicles blower motor is easily accessible and in others it is buried under the dashboard of the vehicle. In most of the vehicles the heater box and blower motor is located inside the passenger compartment, but in some vehicle both the heater box and blower motor is located in the engine compartment. Large vehicles such as full-size SUV's have more than one blower motor, one fitted in the front heater box and the other somewhere in the rear part of the vehicle.
