Check the filter? Can't imagine it would be all gunked up after a few weeks but depends on the conditions you use the vehicle in.

It seems like I have the same problem but it might all be in my head. I have to leave it on 3 to get any appreciable cooling. Went out and looked underneath and everything seems in order.

I'm having the same issue. Dealer said everything was working correctly. I was picking up late in the afternoon and didn't have time to argue. If it's true then Ford's design is terrible... my GMC's seat back cooling was much much better. Will be bringing back to the dealer soon.

My only experience with this feature was with a rental 2014 Ford Taurus last summer in Florida. My recollection was that I always left it on 3 bars. Maybe that's just the "standard" now?

(Really enjoyed the Taurus, BTW)

Several posts on the forum that the hose easily becomes detached from the blower. And the forum consensus seems to be that the seat bottom is cooled but not the seat back.

My 12 F150 seat bottom and back used to get cool and you could feel a little airflow, but on the 15 I only feel the seat bottom get cold...on max 3 bars my butt gets so cold it's numb. One bar keeps me plenty cool enough..kind of disappointing the seat back dosent cool.

My works fine. In fact, it freezes my *** off if I leave it on a long time.

I confirmed with Ford that the seat back and bottom are both cooled. My passenger side does not work as good as the drivers seat. I guess they are having trouble with them as the parts are back ordered.
