  Open toe panel and check to see if ignitor is glowing. Here is parts manual and wiring diagram.

Hi,

Looks like the fuse for sure, but should i try to measure the temp?  Wiring diagram says its a 196 degree cut out...disposable fuse...calling to source locally, i dont want to run more than the intial bypass test in case i am too hot...blows great outside...been keeping the feet of snow off the vent all winter!  Maybe just bad after13 years...
