Ok, when you guys said it should spin, I took another look at it and was able to break it free. It now spins (in both directions), but with a lot of friction. Meaning, it would only spin as far as my hand would move it. I couldn't hit the blades and have them continue to spin...
There was nothing physically that I could see jamming the blades.
Not sure why the blade was jammed. It felt like there was a dab of glue holding it still and once I broke the bond, it now moves, but with friction. Is this friction normal or should it continue to spin?
I'll try dismantling the blower this evening to see if I can lube up the internal parts.
Would this jam be enough to cause fuses to blow?
I also read somewhere else that a bad resistor could cause fuses to pop.
