Is this the seat cooling fan

Hello all
I’ve been noticing my cooled seats don’t cool that much, if at all. I remember reading about the intake being blocked from the factory. Is this the fan motor? To the “right” I can feel lots of air blowing out. And, it doesn’t seem to be for the A/C since it doesn’t blow towards the back. But, to me, it feels like this should be connected to something or that something is blocking the exhaust and it’s getting redirected to the input. If that makes sense. Lol.

Yes that is the fan. I believe it is meant to extract warm temperatures away from the seat rather than blow cool air into the seat.

Been pretty happy with my cooled seats but I came from a Lexus RX and its "coolers" were almost worthless. Last visit to the dealer I asked about having it checked and service writer said it's the top complaints.

Well, that seems a little weird. I was hoping for what I used to have in my '06 expedition, where it literally blew cold air out the seat, and you could really tell.

My 17 Fusion sport had a/c seats works great initially then it’s worthless after.

I have the same issue, stopped cooling drivers seat. It blows cool air when it works properly.
Funny enough, it stopped working after my sync froze and tech asked me to disconnect battery for 10 minutes

I've noticed the same thing. For as much noise as the blower makes at full speed you would expect better cooling. My 2014 Sport was way better than the 20 ST. I feel a little bit at my lower back but nothing coming up through the seat.

Mine has started making a high pitch noise until I cycle through the cooling seat settings (high/med/low). Then it stops. Anyone have an idea what could that be?
