Next step will be to see if blower wheel and filter are both clean

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Filter and blower are both clean and working freely. Continuity thru fan blower is good. Heating elements all check good. Circuit board is slightly discolored around what appears to be a relay. Glass fuse on circuit board checks good..

I am going to open to other experts who may be able to assist with better accuracy rather that just tell you to start changing parts which would be less than professional and a guess at best without doing some troubleshooting.Please wait to see if someone is available more familiar with your unit.Replying will send this back to my desk and delay the process of getting an answer to your question
