36ckts furnace temp

Anyone with 36CKTS have an issue with the temperature of their heated air being WAY too hot ie: hot enough to burn your foot on the register in the bathroom?

The ones I have get quite warm nearest the furnace.
Replace the metal one with a plastic one.

Shouldn't you be asking a/c questions?

It does get very toasty however we have only run our furnace twice for 15 minutes at a crack when the OAT was a frigid 40*.

We did have the burn issue in our 03 Legacy so I cut a chunk of the thick green
filter material and stuck it in the bottom of the vent then safety wired it in. It reduced the air flow enough to keep from burning and kept all the "stuff" my DW dropped from going into the duct as an added benefit. You can get the green stuff at Home Despot for a few bucks per sheet which is enough for 10 vents.

Fixing isn't a problem. Since I have diabetic neuropothy I managed to get
3rd degree burns on 3 of the toes on my left foot. Just wondered if anyone else had the same problem.

No, but wood slat registers don't conduct heat like metal and plastic. Avail in most popular sizes.

Yes. With our type of furnace when you put a vent a few feet up stream from the burner it gets way to hot.
