....and the C9 fuse in the dash fuse panel is good, and there is power to that fuse.

After 9 years of ownership, this annoying glitch has reared it's ugly head.
I looked at the wiring diagram in the owner’s manual, andthere are a BUNCH of other things that look like they may affect power to thefan motor from the switch.

And which motor is it? I thought there was only (1) fan, butthe wiring diagram shows (2).
Is this a chronic problem on the Classics? I thought I’dheard of all the usual ones, can’t recall hearing about this one.

There are three fans
2 for the air
And one in the heater assembly
The fan speed is controlled by the resistor pack
Located in the cowl above the passenger
Side

Thanks, Mikieman, but I have an update: With the blower switch on any speed, a fan only comes on when I slide the mode lever over to the snowflake symbol. What system component failure would cause that???

Then your switches are ok
You are kicking in the air fans
Located above the passenger foot well
I would say your heater fan may be out
You can get a replacement fan and heater core from British Atlantic
With all the other little parts
If you look in the center coul vent you can see the blower fan
Take a stick and give the fan a few turns
It might just need a little push
Crazy as it sounds I worked for me
But I’m sure you have read you have to remove the heater assembly it replace the fan
It blows... but really in the big picture not a hard job
Just time consuming
You could get a replacement
And rebuild it first
Then do a remove and replace
Good luck
Mike

I JUST had the entire dash dis-mantled this past fall to access the stuck defroster flap....what a PIA that was and I said I'd never do THAT again!

Does accessing the motor involve the same procedure as accessing the core?

I have also had a learning curve with the heater assembly
And yes it is a PIA
And I have done it more than once or twice
So at least you know what to expect
For replacing the blower motor you have to remove the heater assembly
Take it apart to get to the fan and blower motor
For the core of you were just replacing that
You still have to remove the assembly
But you could cut the plastic at the core bend it open and replace it
The seal it Back with duct tape of something like it
So what I’m saying is if you take it out replace both motor and core
Just because it’s out
You could test the motor
The plug comes out on the passengers side
About mid assembly about in the middle
Unplug it give it 12 volts
It will run or not
It’s not easy to get to but possible through the tray above the passenger side
It’s also a PIA
I have a replacement I’m my future
My fan is rubbing so it’s gonna fail
So if you just fix it all on the next removal
Your done with that part of the Rover
The heat is good in them
And needed
If you want some pics posted of an assembly I have a broken one in the garage

Again
Good luck
