Is the blower running?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No, I do not hear the blower starting
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Usually after the thermostat lights goes ON, I could hear the blower starting then few seconds later the heater would start
Expert:  Rick replied 8 months ago.

Then the air pressure/draft switch won't close and the unit won't fire up. You could have a faulty blower motor or possibly a faulty controller

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
But this time the blower is not starting.
After the thermostat lights goes ON, there is only a buzzing sound
Expert:  Rick replied 8 months ago.

If you have power to the blower then the motor is faulty. If you don't have power to the blower then the control is faulty.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I already unplugged and plugged back all connectors, but the problem remains the same.
Would you have or knows a technician in the TEMECULA/MURRIETA, CA area who could come and fix it?
