    In the "hot rod" days of the 60's, belt-driven superchargers were called "blowers". But the blowers in the Prius are in one of three places: The radiator, the A/C, or the battery compartment. Assuming you mean the one in the A/C, and your "problem not working" is that it's not moving air, then check the fuse first, a 20A marked A/C (HTR), in the driver-side footwell fusebox. If that's OK, it's not likely clogged, but the variable speed controller could be at fault. Here's a video describing the module:

    it doesn't run all the time, and at lower speeds, you can't hear it. i've never heard mine, but it doesn't generally go over 100 degrees f here, and i don't drive faster than 65-70 mph.
