Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is Bryan,I look forward to helping you today.

you have a bad thermal fuse .

you can check this with a multi meter for continuity. click this blue link for a video on how to test it. http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Thermal-Fuse/3392519/2986?modelNumber=110.66742501 , just remove the back panel and this is located on the blower assembly. part # 59 on this diagram. this will fix the issue. you can order it at the link with the video. thanks Bryan

you wont get voltage across the fuse . open your door and see if the black part of the door switch is still there, you can see it in the picture,
