Sorry I need to go . I want to take the motor out..
Expert:  Brian HVAC Guy replied 4 months ago.

Very good, I will be around till late tonight. I have the manual for your unit and will post it here. After removing the blower side panel, you will need to take out the screws across the top front of the blower at the edges of the blower and after disconnecting the wiring, the blower should slide out toward you. There are a few things that can prevent the blower from running and those should be checked first. The blower control and blower motor capacitor should be checked first. Once you confirm the capacitor is good and the motor is getting power from the control and the motor still doesn't run, then the motor can be condemned.

Let me know how I can help further.
