Acura Legend Heater Motor

I have a 87 Legend. The fan runs at full speed only. Mechanic has said to replace motor and a very expensive resistor. What is function of resistor? The motor sometimes doesn't run - is this the motor, resistor, switch (potentiometer) or something else? If I can handle the motor running at full speed, ie: the potentiomer is not necessary, how can I do that?
Thanks. I just don't want to spend all the money, estimated at $600 to fix.

the resistor is used to lower the voltage to the motor and creating a lower speed, are you reffering to the blower motor or the cooling fan motor?
i assume it is the blower motor if so get another quote from another shop that is way overpriced.
