Weather king works for 15 seconds and stops working
I cleaned every thing you can see and I still can not get it to work. If we do not turn on the heater for a few hour it will start on its own but once it stops it will continue to go for 10 second stop and it will just continue to on off, on off every 10 seconds.

If you are talking about a furnace the problem sounds like the flame proving device located at the end of the burners. Looks like a solid wire hanging down into the flame. Take some steel wool and gently remove the carbon that has built up on the surface. Don't get rough with it as just a mild touch will be good.

Try to turn the fan by use of a long screw driver or other object. If it feels like it is siezed or getting very hard to move then the fan motor needs replaced. If it turns freely I would replace the capacitor and if that does not solve it then replace the fan motor too! Capacitors are cheap and fan motors are $80 to $120 average!
Possible causes are dirty filters, dirty condenser coil, dirty evaporator coil, or low referigerant charge. Any one of the conditions will affect heat transfer.
Check the filters in your indoor unit, If they seem to be clean and replaced on a regular basis, your evaporator coil is probably in good shape. Unfortunatley on some Weather King models even checking the evaporator coil is not possible due to the extensive amount of referigerent lines that block access to the coil without some major work including evacuating the refrigerant.
The most likely cause is a dirty outdoor condenser coil. On weather king models you will have to remove the casing that surrounds the coil because is is built in such a way that the condenser coil cannot be properly cleaned with the casing in place. Once it is removed make sure breaker is switched off and clean the coil with a water hose.
If your outdoor coil is not dirty then it is a refrigerent problem.
If the unit is remote control try to unplug the supply of the unit(or off and on again circuit breaker) and operate the unit again. If it wont work then call a qualified technician to check the unit, maybe there is a problem with the unit control.
