Is your furnace getting enough heat?

Check the filter, it may need to be replaced if it is damaged or you can clean the filter if it's just dirty.
Check to see if the blower belt is loose or broken. You will need to adjust the belt or simply replace it.
Check to see if you have a clogged filter or duct, just clean out the blower assembly to fix this minor problem.
The furnace won't run at all
If your furnace won't run at all the possible cause could be no power. If this is the case then you will want to check to see if there are any tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses at the main entrance panel. Also check the separate entrance panel, and on or in the furnace. Then you will need to restore the circuit to fix the problem.
Another reason for the furnace not running is there may be a motor overload. You will want to wait approximately 30 minutes, and then press the reset button. You may have to repeat the process if necessary.
