Hello,my name is Rick

repairguy :

I will assist you tonight

repairguy :

It sounds as though you may not be getting all the power the unit needs

repairguy :

I would like you to reset the breaker

repairguy :

I also need to know if you have a meter to check voltage?\

repairguy :

Once you reset the power, if the unit still will not heat normally, we need to check the power connection to the unit, all you need to do is remove the cover where the power cord is attached.

Customer: I do not have a meter in have reset the breaker twice still the same
repairguy :

Pull the unit from where it is setting and check the power cord please

repairguy :

there should be a access panel to remove so you can see where the power cord connects to the unit, open panel and tell me if you see any loose connections.
