I have a Goodman ar32-1 and the motor will not turn on, not

This answer was rated:

I have a Goodman ar32-1 and the motor will not turn on, not even in fan on mode, It sounds like relays are clicking on when I turn the unit on but I only get a light buzzing from the motor, the fan seems to turn freely.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help! I would try replacing the run capacitor first as this may be the problem. If this doesn't work, then you will most likely have to replace motor. Capacitors are only a couple of bucks and can be purchased at a local Graingers or Johnstone or online. You will need to get the information off the old one before ordering.

The system now goes on, the motor turns, but there is no heat coming on, I made no repairs except for replacing the filter.
Does the blower motor stay on constantly despite thermostat being in the fan (auto) position?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
When I first got it started, I turned the fan a little with my finger and the motor started working and it was blowing heat, then I shut it off with the thermostat to see if it will start up again and it did but it was not blowing any heat. I now tried to start it again and the motor will not start up.
OK, well it sounds like it may be a bad blower motor then. Check for 120 volts to the motor leads and if you have voltage, and new capacitor, you are probably going to need a new motor, then.
