Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

If the draft fan on the front of the unit isn't running and you have a lit LED on the control board inside the blower compartment then the next step is to bypass the thermostat. Are you up for that? How old is your unit?
