Moncrief Gas Furnace issue :(
 
Few days ago, I woke up with a bad burning smell from the vent. I rushed to the basement and saw the furnace went out. I checked the fuse box, and the fuse was blown. I replaced the fuse and it started again. Now, the blower no longer blows. The furnace is Moncrief and model number is U-65LF series D4. The electrical system is Honeywell and I'm not too sure about the motor. Is the motor totally fried? Is this an easy fix or do I have to call in a pro? How much would the repair like this will run? The funds are low these days. There are too many repairs have to be done for this old house.

Thanks again for your tips.

It's the blower. Ain't hard to replace if you know how.

If you use a contractor, it will cost what ever they charge.

Its not hard to change out.

Just need common sense, and tools.

Can you recommend me a good place to order a blower? I'm also in a PA area. Philadelphia to be exact. Thanks.

Yellow pages, Brother. Look under furnace parts.

It is working now. Thanks for your help. All of sudden, I missed the days of renting.
