2013 X3 - Heater Fan issue?

Did anyone have an issue with their heater fan not working in really cold temperature?
I have a 2013 X3 28i and on a really cold day (-30c) after starting my car, I turned on the cabin fan/heater and nothing happened. There was no air being blown into the car cabin no matter what temperature/fan speed setting I chose.

I ended up driving with no heat for a few minutes and once the car warmed up the fan started working normally again. I am suspecting it had to do with the very cold temperature we had that day and the fact that the car was parked outside overnight. Something may have frozen and prevented the fan from properly working!

It seems odd that this would happen on a new BMW, and I was wondering if anyone had a similar experience.

This only happened once (on that day when it was -30c) and the fan seems to work normally since.

Just wondering if I need to be worried about it?
