coleman furnace blower motor problems


when a blower motor is starting to break/stop working it will have trouble starting and give a humming noise. when you give it that push start you assist it past that sticking point. i would give the fan a push start and turn the summer fan on to keep it running all the time to avoid the start/stop, then either install a new motor or call a furnace service company to replace the motor.
good luck.

I'd try that before investing in a new motor.
