I got water in my basement and it looks like the blower

Customer Question

I got water in my basement and it looks like the blower motor got wet. Now when I try to fire it the green light flashes and will not reset
JA: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?
Customer: just one time about 2 weeks ago
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: I would like to. I all ready pulled the motor to see if it was holding water ,but it seemed dry
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The only thing I did not check is if the blower motor for the vents and returns was under water or not . I'm going to do that right now
