Hi my name is Robert...

How long will the furnace run? Just to verify the fan is coming on, it is heating but then shutting down?

What is the make and model of the furnace? Do you have an outside access panel for the furnace?

Thanks, Robert

Follow ups are included, sometimes more info is needed to have a better idea of what the issue could be. IF you need to get the make and model of the furnace that is fine, I am around daily and respond when I can...
