Do you have the model number of the 8000ts?
Thank you ,
Have you been able to inspect the capacitor to see if it is bulged or leaking oil?
Do you have a volt meter for testing?
First have bottom door off to furnace with safety switch taped down. Then turn thermostat to on position. Then on circuit board locate black wire from blower motor and see if 110v is present, also try red wire.
You are correct.
Test meter in a known working 120v outlet to test.
tested the volt meter on a 120v outlet. Tested black terminal- did not get any voltage.
tested red terminal- got 120v
And while 120v was present the motor was still not running?
Ok, now when you hear motor humming and it should be running, spin the fan wheel by hand and tell me it tries to start or not.
turned on, rotated fan by hand, now fan is running- do I need to follow up on the blower motor?
Replace the capacitor.
If fan ran with a hand spin it is moist likely capacitor.
