    Have you tried oiling

    the motor and the bearings? It may be knocking off at the pump on protecto-relay. You can use 10W-30 oil.

    Time

    to call for service. Cost a couple of bucks but you will get your heat back full time.
    If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy!
