I have a problem with my Lennox model c33-36b-2f-2. Heater

Customer Question
turns on but blower is...
I have a problem with my Lennox model c33-36b-2f-2. Heater turns on but blower is not engaging. A single diagnostic LED light flashes 4 times. Opened the panel and error code is "open primary or auxiliary limit".
I have toggled the breaker to the unit. Issue persists.
I have replaced the filter.
Air intake registers are both clear.
It's 55 degrees in my house and 25 degrees outside.
Any ideas on how to resolve this?

Is blower running and moving air through the house?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It is not.
HVAC Technician: Tim H., HVAC Professional replied 1 year ago

Go to your thermostat and put fan switch on ON instead of auto. Make sure blower door is on tight. Any air movement?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No movement, blower not engaging.
HVAC Technician: Tim H., HVAC Professional replied 1 year ago

Open blower door, reach in and see if blower wheel spins freely.

Confirmed it does.
HVAC Technician: Tim H., HVAC Professional replied 1 year ago

You probably have a bad blower motor. This can be confirmed with a voltage reading at board.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok. Thanks.
HVAC Technician: Tim H., HVAC Professional replied 1 year ago

If you have 120 volts to blower motor but it doesn't spin, replace motor. If no voltage, replace board.

It's got to be one or the other. That is why you are getting limit fault code. Furnace got so hot it tripped out on high limit.
