Heater shutting down and needs reset to turn back on


A

acrouder

I have a heater that when turned on works for a while, sometimes getting
up to temp in all zones sometimes not then turns off and needs to be
switched off for 10 min or so before being switched back on and working
(for a while) again.
Last summer I had the same problem with the AC, working for a while then
turning off needing a hard off/on to work again. Had a tech come look at
it but once he took off the cover to the system it reset and worked. He
called it good and charged me but an hour or so later it shut itself off
again.
Can anyone give me an idea as to what this might be so I am armed with a
little understanding when I get the next tech out to work on it.
Thanks

Things to do/check first....

*ALL* vents wide open
new filter
make sure that the evap coils are clean

Insufficient airflow *WILL* shut the system down.

"A heater".

Excellent, that really narrows it down.....
