I have a blower that will not turn on all of a sudden. In ground pool and spa combo, was working fine up until two days ago when my girls went to the spa after school. The water still comes our hot so no issue with the heater, all other functionality seems to be ok. When attempting to turn on the blower you can here a click in the control box but nothing happens

Polaris 1-460-02, how can I test it and rule it out bad? Will killing power and the pool control box suffice when handling the electrical components?
