Low speed blower won't work in auto mode

If I changed the location (change the taps) of the red wire at the harness connection at the blower motor, would that allow me to determine if the problem was with the blower motor itself?

Before I start looking for a blower motor, I want to make sure that is the problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Does my Lennox G26 series unit have a fan limit control? Is it possible that is the problem?


Nope. It's a 90% furnace. Uses a control board.


Just slow, not stupid.

If you manually had to turn the fan on by cutting the switch to on and not auto then you need to replace the fan switch which controls fan by tempature.
