Furnace issues

Does anybody else have issues with their furnace. Seems like it always needs to be reset. And doesn't get very hot. 2017 Cherokee 274dbh

If you are talking about getting up in the middle of your first night, shivering, turning the system off, waiting and turning it back on to get it to fire again, YES! I think it's an air bubble in the line. I never have an issue after the first night.

Once you confirm gas pressure is good, it should fire right up. Using it right now. Toasty. ..

Your symptoms can sometimes point to a bad thermostat. Especially if you have the old analog slider/rotating type. Had a similar problem in my Roo. Put in a digital and never had another problem.

The thermostat in these units are in a terrible place to begin with, compounded by the fact that it doesn't seem to work that good. We've figured out that it's about 4-6 degrees off and have a digital thermometer that we put on the entertainment center. If you want it to be 70 in the unit, set it to 74-76 and it will keep it about 69-70. We've yet to figure our the pretty much runs constantly even though it gets plenty cold in the unit.
