Default Aqua Hot

I own a 1998 40 LX Bluebird
This unit was just purchased a few months ago.
My heater front zone does not work, all others do.
The thermostat engages however the fan does not turn on.
I would assume that there is a relay.
Does anyone know where it is located?
Thank you much

The first thing to check is to make sure there is nothing preventing the fan from turning. I have found leaves, sticks and duct tape in the fan. The duct tape was temp way to hold the wiring out of the way during installation. Installers were to remove the tape but sometimes forgot. I have found this several times.

Hi Mike. On a LXI, the front air conditioner switch on the dash's side panel has to be turned on, to get the two front heaters to function at the same time. Might try that first, prior any disassembly.

Just want to verify that you are getting heat in the kitchen area?

I have a 2003 M380 with Hurricane Heater and one of my Front Blower fans wouldn’t work, I assumed the motor was shot.
Hot water water flowing to it but not blowing out.
Traced the wiring looked for relays,fuses, broken wires and found nothing.
Time the pull the cabinet it’s housed in.
What I found was 2 fan motors, 1 not connected,the other wired wrong and Not connected to power wire!
I assume this came from factory like this and previous owner was not concerned with the heating or lack of heating this blower gives.

I hope the his gives you some insight where to focus.

A alternative is to head South and Not worry about Heating!!!

First of all thank you so much for your help.
The fans do not have anything in them that would stop them from turning.
There is no switch on the dashboard side panel.
Yes, it is the kitchen area heater that is not working.
The one in the bath area and bedroom work fine.
It has two fans on the unit and both a connected however I have no idea where the wires go from there.
Does anyone know where they go?
Thank you

I am so sorry for wasting everyone’s time.
It was the thermostat.
It was making contact, sanded the points and assumed it was good.
Took off touched the wires and it fired up.
