Unhappy No A/C blower function... what do I do?

I have a 300CE, and last week, the a/c motor died. I know this because I checked the a/c and it was really cold, and when I changed to high temp climate settings, nothing comes out. Anyway, I checked the fuse strip, and found a problem! The fuse was not blown, but one of the terminals that holds an end of the strip was. It looked like it arc'ed to ground, and so I thought replacing it (and the fuse) would do the trick. Unfortunately, it did not. I still have to check and see if current is flowing, but in the meantime, what else can I do? Is the motor shot, and if it is, how do I get to it? Is there another fuse to check? I'd appreciate any help...

IS there power to the fuse?? If not the electrical portion of the ignition switch is bad. There is a good chance that the whole problem is because the blower motor was drawing too much current(AMPS).
Blower motor is under the hood below the w/s wiper mech. The air intake BOX must be remover to get to the blower, about a 3 hour job.

Thanks, doc. I know about the ignition switch, I did some "searches" before I posted. I haven't checked the fuse for current, since I don't have a dvm. Will do that tomorrow... what is the typical amperage for the motor, anyway?
