Please give me time to respond sometimes I get your replies late so there may be a delay in my response.
Garland is right and the switches do go bad, but the switch is located inside the motor and you would need to take the motor apart to get at the contacts to even clean them or anything. This is a job as the motor has to come off and then you have to disassemble the motor to get at it. There is no simple way to do this or fix that issue as the contact pads go bad and even with getting it all apart and cleaning it may only work for a short period of time and then go bad again. You really do need new motors this happens a lot, sorry please do not kill the messenger.

The centrifugal switch is in place for safety as the flame will not burn correctly as there will not be enough oxygen sucked into the burner area and the flame will be all sooty and yellow, you can not bypass it as it will not work unless the fan is running so no Kosher repair for this as it will not work right at all and put put a lot of carbon monoxide on top of it.
