the_grt1 is an unknown quantity at this point
I was on my way home from work with the windows open wide and my heat came on. I figured it was on cause I turned it on. So I turned it off, 2 min pass and it is on again. It was blowing hot air so it was working. It was like a cat and mouse game on and off the whole way home. One time I turned it off but the fan kept blowing. What do you guys think. Should I do the capcitor change, or you guys think it is the whole unit?

Thanks in advance!

INTERNAL CAPACITOR

If the thing expierences glitches. Power on and off randomly. Then its the capacitor.
