Call the mfr and ask them about it. This problem may be pretty complicated. There may be a problem with your board that tells it to go to cool down. Can you set the timer for 45-60 minutes and it stay on heat for that long?

HI, The timer control module is the culprit. This device controls the heating functions of your unit. You have indicated that the timer will not stop the unit, and it continues to run after the cycles intended stopping point. This will confirm that the timer is damaged, and it should be replaced asap, if possible.
NOTE:-( Just to be safe, check the thermal fuse as well. This is a emergency cut-off fuse that will blow if the element overheats your unit. it is located on the blower housing, or vent duct inside the unit. Test the fuse for continuity. If it is ok, replace the timer).
