Default Air flow problem

What you have is an air flow issue. If the heated air cannot escape the unit is going to overheat. Clean out you filter/blower housing and outside vent. Use rigid metal vent piping. If the thermistor didn't correct the problem then maybe the control is faulty.

Thanks-
I have good air flow coming out of the vents. What is the control, and is there a way for me to test it?
