    does the fan motor still work?

    is the engine still running at the proper temp?

    did you check the fuses?

    did you check for kinked lines going to the heat exchanger?

    did you check wires and connections going to the blower motor?


    if not start with those and report back your findings.

    i dont think so, he said all of a sudden he lost it. Makes it sound like all airflow stopped. A tstat would still blow cold air or luke warm air.

    ohh shoot sorry! i thought you meant all air quit.

    is the engine temp fluctuating up and down? or does it stay constant at one temp?

    My bobcat did the same thing. While operating it I suddenly lost heat and the temp gauge went up slightly. I continued to run it for about a half hour to finish and the temp guage stayed just slightly above where it normally reads. Replaced the thermostat and all was good again.
