Blower controls

Hi,

has anyone had issues with the internal blower running at Max only? Ive got a set switches of ebay but that didn't cure it.

my thoughts are now turning to the blower itself.

Andy

Hello Andy,

couple of day ago I got the same problem. Have you found out the reason?

Best regards

Failure of the low speed motor resistor

Guide to fix on: TotalMini (dot) com

Add a dot as links to totalMini not allowed on Mini2......

I lost all fan speeds except flat out on my R56 Dooper (with manual heating controls).
I suspected this was a failure of the low speed motor resistor(s) and set about finding where it was. This jobs turned out to be very simple so thought I would add this guide for anyone with the same problem:

Thanks a lot. Just before your answer I checked the resistor (took some time to find it without knowing), it is really dead.

Blower motor resistors are a common fault that will leave the blower only operable on max setting. The resistor is located on the side of the heater matrix in the passenger side footwell. They are not difficult to remove and replace.

Looks like the resistor failed on my 2004 MCS today - Fan now just works on positions 3 & 4!
Whereabouts would be the location of mine? & I dont suppose you have the circuit diagram with resistor values involved? The diagram on the totalmini link seems a bit obscurred
Thanks

on my daughters of 05 UK model, the resistor pack is at the back of the right hand (drivers side on RHD) foot well mounted on the fan complex. Requires you to remove 1 x T20 screw holding the resistor pack in place. has 4 wires leading to it (red, blach, blue, and black & yellow). A bit fiddly, but only takes about 15 mins to complete.

I had mine replaced by a local MINI breaker.
When looking at the 'resistor' pack, I noticed it wasn't a resistor at all but a voltage regulator circuit -which delivered different set voltages for each fan speed.
Explains why it costs so much I suppose.
