Hi my name is Robert.....

Need to figure out if the thermostat is sending power to the time delay relay or circuit board, click HERE for a service manual and see page 31 and 32. On some models the blue wire will go to a time delay relay on the back of the furnace, other models the relay is part of the circuit board. IF you have voltage on the blue wire at the relay check for voltage across the relay. You should have one post that is constant hot, one wire going to the blower motor and ground. IF you have constant hot and have voltage on the blue wire jump across the relay and see if the fan comes on, if so bad relay. IF you do NOT have the time relay then it is part of the circuit board, if you have voltage on the blue wire going to the circuit board then most likely the circuit board is bad, a RV shop or store can test the board with a special board tester. IF you do not have voltage at ALL on the blue wire then bad thermostat, look over the manual I sent there is a troubleshooting tree you can follow as well. Let me know if you need more help, follow ups are included... Robert
