May be just a capacitor. Open blower door and spin wheel. If it is hard to turn or does not spin freely it is fan. Also you can open panel and have some one turn on heat and try to spin fan to see if it will start. If it does it just maybe capacitor. Cheap easy fix. The capacitor is the silver component usually fasted to fan housing. It size will be something like 5uf 370 VAC or 7.7 uf 370 VAC. Russ
