Thanks Thorning, Yes I have jumpers and the thermal fuse is blown I jumped it out and the heating element comes on but the motor doesn't start tested the PTS button with Ohm meter and it is good. I am wondering if the motor has a reset switch anywhere? i discovered a wire tie some how got in the blower i believe it either locked the blower up or slowed it down causing the thermal fuse to blow. i checked the discharge chute and it is clear. any ideas? Thanks for replying.
