No Blower (Lennox G11Q3E)
 
Suddenly, the blower has stopped working.

It still ignites the burners, but the fan never turns on. I don't see any fuses or breakers to reset. Is it worth getting it fixed since it is so old, or should I have it replaced?

Do you have a volt meter and do you know how to use it to trouble shoot ?

yeah, check for (lack of) voltage at the motor itself to rule out the motor itself being bad,

I have a DMM, but there are so many wires going to the motor (eight, I think, I'm at work right now) I'm not sure which should or should not have voltage.

If the blower motor is bad though, should I have it fixed or replace the entire unit? I know that the furnace is pretty old, and I am not sure how much effort or money to put into it. Is anyone familiar with this make and model to say which direction I should take?
