    I have a Breckwell SP22. Recently, it began running the room blower fan on HIGH, immediately at start-up, and no matter what heat level is set. I took everything apart and cleaned both fans inside and out. I have been reading about testing the high limit sensor and low limit sensor, the blower motor itself, or that it could be a bad control board.
    I am new to electricity stuff. I have a multi-meter - I am just wondering for sure where to start and how to do it correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!

    First thing to check is your low limit/proof of fire snap disc. It will be on the combustion blower housing. It has 2 brown wires, put your multimeter on the continuity/diod setting and pull the 2 wires off and connect the probes on each spade. If you get anything but an open circuit it is bad. Do this with the stove off and cold.

    Thanks for responding. Now my question is: “get anything but an open circuit”... how do I know? What will it look like?

    Touch your leads together. Does your meter beep?

    1st pic is an open circuit
    2nd pic is a closed circuit
