1st I just want to make sure you have a all electric furnace and not gas or other. Next in auto position and a call for heat you say the blower starts on it own and then turns back off wile still calling for heat is this correct?

Some electric furnaces use a different breaker for the fan (110 v or 220v) then any number of breakers for the elements these are generally but not always 220 v

It could be as simple as a tripped breaker.

If not answer John's questions

Please do not go poking around electric furnaces are very safe till you open the door, then they are arguably the most dangerous.
