Is the blower running?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No, I do not hear the blower starting
Customer: replied 11 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 11 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 11 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 11 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 11 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?
