air-conditioning blower just stopped

This happened to me twice.
First time I was driving for about 10 minutes , the blower was in number 2, the cabin recirculating switch was on. Then the blower just stopped. No air was coming from the vents. Tried turning the blower switch to off then on but still no air was coming out. Had to park, turn off the engine then stars start it up again. Turn up the blower and air was coming out. Had no problem after that.
After a month, I was driving for about 20 minutes with the blower set to 1 and the cabin recirculating switch was off, the sir just stopped coming out of the vent. Turned the blower switch off then on again and everything was fine again.
In both cases the outside temperature was 33 deg Celsius. No warning light from the dashboard.
Did this happen to any one else? Is this normal?

Sounds like a common SLK issue =) Motor brushes start wearing out and fan gets intermittent on/off problems.
Some other thread:

Are you handy with tools? It's a relatively easy fix
Here's the possible solution:

And the new brushes will cost you under $30 compare to the new blower motor which will be $$$'s

This is a common problem of air conditioning. Your compressor which is responsible for providing cool air during summer might have been stopped working. This means, either your car is aging or your compressor needs an experienced ac repair boca raton technicians.

Karen,

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Please update your vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t already.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’.

We’d like you to post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. https://www.slkworld.com/new-members-...yourself-here/


Join our April 12th meet:
https://www.slkworld.com/u-s-southeast-region/

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response and only once. Be patient and a knowledgeable member will address your question.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
