Motor or control board got water damaged, shut system off, let dry with a fan blowing on it and try again tomorrow, if your lucky it will work if not one of the two will need replacing

So how is your issue?

Still same unit clicks light comes on then shuts off. Blower does not even try to come on.
Expert:  Gaztech replied 7 months ago.

Try bypassing terminal R and G at furnace control board to see if blower goes on steady or not. dont forget to close door switch so power is on.

If you take the black wire from motor and put directly to 120v source of furnace it should run correctly, if not .REPLACE MOTOR
