Hello, turn power off to the furnace and then access the blower and see if you can spin the blower wheel by hand... if not, then the blower motor needs to be replaced.

If you can spin the blower wheel by hand, and the motor is *hot....the motor run capacitor is most likely bad, it attaches to the motor with 2 wires and is mounted on the blower...its the size of pack of cigarettes, made of metal.

Let me know what you find, we can go from there
