Blazer Heater Mod Help!?

I put the upgraded heater motor in the jeep. Hooked everything up and I get nothing when I turn the fan switch on. The only thing that happens when I turn it on is that the volt meter drops down to like 10 volts, and then when I turn it on high it drops to all the way and if I keep the switch on the fuse eventually blows. The motor is not turning on. I ran a wire from the motor straight to the battery to see if it would turn on and it did not. The 12ga jumper wire got extremely hot.

Did you get the motor with the right shaft length? There are two that look the same but the shaft on one of them is longer. Your squirrel cage may be stuck on the housing.

Sounds like your squirrel cage is binding. I had to put mine in twice for that.

Some members have found out the hard way that the model PM102 is sometimes mislabeled or just a variant is put in the wrong box.

Does the squirrel cage spin freely by hand?
