Default 87 heater issue, plastic burning smell??

When I put my blower switch on medium or high, i smell electrical burning smell, reminds me of the smell when my ignition switch melted.

Question is: could it be the ignition switch related to the blower motor?

When I put the blower back on low or off the smell goes away.

Any suggestions? My biggest concern is the ignition switch, since I lost my lights last time it melted. If its just the motor, ill replace it.

Thanks,

Mike

Could be the blower motor switch OR the blower motor stepdown resistor block, located in the kick panel on the passenger side if I remember right.
