Furnace motor blows fuses.....

Furnace motor blows fuses... of course won't turn on

Mechanic's Assistant: Do all the fuses have the correct amperage for the circuits they're in?

Yes 15 amp

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '15 RV?

Furnace model is 8935/40

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Replaced fuse and it blew again. I think it is the motor

That can be due to several things. Most often it is a short caused by mice or some debris left in there by them or some insects and the motor is bound up. Do you have an outside inspection panel over the furnace or not? And give me a few minutes as I have to take a phone chat.

It isn't fixed but I already got charged 24 + 5 so I won't be using this service any more

T​hat was the question value and not many shops you can go and get it repaired for just $29. One reason our site is so popular is that we can get the problem solved quickly and for very little compared to shop rates. I have successfully assisted over 12,000 customers here over the last 8+ years who were very pleased with the help they got. Sorry this didn't work out for you, but it could have.
