Hi my name isXXXXX will be assisting you with this problem.Please allow me some time to do research and type a response to each of your posts.

You would need to check the blower is working, you would also need to check the venting to the outside of the house, make sure a mouse has not built a nest in the vent, If the vent is clear and the screens are not blocked then the blower motor may have weakened which would mean it needs to be replaced.

Please remember after "ACCEPTING" you can come back at any time for additional assistance if needed.
