Furnace blower not working need advice!

My Winchester heater is not working. When turned on works right up to when the blower is to come on. The blower twitches but does not spin. If I reach in and spin the wheel it will then come on and work. I have replaced the cap and motor and is still doing the same thing. I get error codes mainly flame sensor lockout but sometimes others. I have cleaned the flame sensor without help. Is it the board? What should I try next? Thanks for taking you time to add your opinions... I do appreciate it

Normally you would measure the voltage going to the blower before replacing the motor.

Is this one of those hanging garage heaters ?
Can you leave a model number.
You need to tell us what is happening in the order it happens.

As stated we need more info on your unit. DO you have a volt meter and know how to use it?
