blower and fan seem to be running o.k.

When that is happening you will need to replace the control board to fix it, that happens a lot.

You can get it online or from a local supplier.

The blower motor is not running. I disconnected blower from circuit board to isolate and test it, and then hooked it up to an outside source (acorss the common(white) and black lead), and I repeatedly blew the circuit breaker on our house panel. There are 4 leads from the circuit board: white, black, red and blue. Do I need to disconnect them all to test from an outside source?

When I said earlier - yesterday - that the blower was working, I was mistaken.) I am trying to confirm that the blower is working prior to purchasing a new controller board.
Expert:  HVAC Guru replied 8 months ago.

If the blower is not running that is why that is happening, can you hook up Black and white and see if the blower runs?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I think I need to clarify: With the blower hooked up to the furnace, the furnace kicked on, but the blower did not.
Then, I disconnected the white and black leads from the circuit board, and hooked the black and white leads up to a 120V household power source. When I did this, the house circuit breaker tripped. So when you say "can you hook up black and white and see if the blower runs?", the answer is yes, I can, and this trips the circuit breaker. Am I using the correct voltage - 120V? Thank you for your help.

The blower may be bad, it should have come on and not have blown the breaker

Does the motor hum if you set the thermostat to FAN ON and does the blower spin freely?
