blower motor works on high only the resistor has been changed with no help, the temp. control panel has also been changed with no help what is next.
My heater only worked on high before, and when I would turn it on it would make a horrible screeching sound. The thermostat turned out to be bad, once this was replaced, it seems to work a lot better.
