All furnace fans I have seen turned freely. Could also have a frozen bearing?

Same here. All the furnace fans I've messed with turn freely. The frozen fan would explain the burnt fuse. You need to pull the furnace and get into it to see whats holding it up. Your probably right about the critter nests.

I pulled the furnace and took the housing around the fan apart to discover not one but FOUR nests that kept the fan from turning...I also discovered that apparently the FW was built tightly all around that furnace...Wow what a job...will test it tomorrow...

You should probably check your water heater, AC and fridge area as well. Until we screened all those areas off we had the same issues.

Success, finally, after tweeking the wire connectors this morning for about an hour,we now have a working heater....what a job...Yes, Keith, youre right, we are going to put those screen covers in place...what did you use for the fridge vents? did you do a home-made one or is there a special device?...do you just use those a/c plastic covers or a screen on the a/c?...

We bought a roll of fiberglass screen material from Home Depot and my wife cut it to fit the inside of the vent covers for the fridge and then she hot melt glued them in place on the back side of the covers. She did the same thing for the inside of the AC unit covers. It works really well and does not block air flow.

These are for the fridge vents: http://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/r...ct-screens.htm. They also have specific ones for Suburban and Atwood water heaters.
