ok which part did you replace? is the venting clear and this blowing outside strong?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

tes all vents are clear. I replaced the thermostat that sits just inside the blower tube (it has 4 prongs-two purple wires and two red). I also removed the vent flex tube and ran it. same result.
