Furnace fan will not come on 2008 wildcat 30lsbs

Our furnace fan will not come after turning thermostat on. We can hear it make a noise in roof a/c and then a noise at furnace. Sounds like relays making noise but fan will not cut on. Any information anyone can share would be greatly appreciated . We are living in Rv full time and have been in it since July 2012 waiting patiently till our new house is completed. I have been scouring the net since last Sunday and have got no where. Think I will have to pull furnace out but that should be easy beings forest river only put one cabinet screw in housing to hold outer shell of furnace to floor! Lol! Thanks Jason and Letty

If you have an air compressor, try blowing air into exhaust vent. You are trying to get the fan to turn. It might be that you have a dead spot on the fan motor. We had the same problem and had to install new brushes for the fan motor. We also had the comm. turned down at the same time.

The comm. is the commutator of the motor. Pulled the furnace had the motor reworked at a repair shop that repairs car starters.
