Blower motor going dead

Has anybody had their blower motor die on them? I have my air conditioner on and on level 7... It used to blow me out of the car, now is barely making a feather move, and is blowing variably, & very noisy, making a groaning noise.... Ugh.

Sorry, I missed your post from a few days ago.

That kinda sounds like what I experienced last year actually. But is wasn't a blown blower, it was a low refrigerant charge causing ice build-up on the evaporator. This caused a serious obstruction to airflow and yes, a blower that could harldy push any air into the cabin.

If you turn the A/C off, does the blower work properly ? Mine did. Dealer could not find a leak, but found the charge pressure to be low, recharged it and it's been working fine for more than a year now. If the blower still doesn't work properly after you've turned off A/C and/or allowed the Jeep to rest (engine off) for 15+ minutes, then yeah you probably have a blower motor problem.
This makes sense.... Ran my heater yesterday for about 15 minutes while I was driving, I tried all levels of blowing strength.. And it seemed fine....

Im going to stop and check the freon this week. Thx!

Have you changed your cabin air filter?
In my 2014 it was real dirty after 2 years. I now change it every year.
Also as @Mark_ mentioned it could be icing. Also a poor air flow because of very dirty filter can cause icing further complicating air flow. It can also cause mold!

There are threads on this forum/you tube on how to do the filter change. I do mine now in 10 minutes.
Yes, changed earlier this summer, and it was changed again last week at dealer while there for an oil change.. (they installed my filter for free)!
