No problem here. Kinda sounds like a wiring connector is loose. Could be a loose wire/connection inside the blower, too. If you can play with the controls and have it work, I'd guess the fan switch is at fault.

Just drive at high speeds - lotsa air being rammed in then... ;)

Was your cowl intake blocked with snow/ice by chance, when this happened?

My wife called me from the road Christmas night in our other vehicle. The blower shut off. I asked her if the cowl was cleared. It may have been restricted enough it caused the blower to overheat. After some scraping/clearing of the ice and snow at the base of the windshield, the motor cooled and the issue did not return. A possibility if you had snow blocking the intake maybe.
