Check the vent at the outside port(outside your home) and make sure air is blowing strongly out of the vent. Often just a clogged or blocked vent is the issue. Check that and get back to me.

All I ask is please select the ***5 STAR RATING*** using the link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am credited through the site, tips are appreciated.

i already checked, and the vent is clean and air is going through.

You would have to check the heater to see if a rung is burned out on it, sometimes a rung on the heater burns out and then it will not heat to temp.

Here is a video to help, note your heater will look a little different but the heater will have to be checked for a burn out spot.
