I removed the thermostat off the back plane, no difference. The only
thing that'll stop it is the breaker which is a two pole.

I suppose the best thing would be to go up in the 'attic' and inspect
the relay, and if it's damaged, get the p/n off it and buy another
I'm not into burnishing pitted relay contacts. I'm also assuming at
this point that the fan motor is not drawing excessive current
because it is indeed running, and not tripping the main breaker or
any protective breaker which might be in the heat pump. I do not know

and eradicate the hornets or whatever they are so I can get up there
and take a looksee. Comments?
