SOURCE: The Caution Light ?
to be absolutely certain what is turning on the caution light I'd have to see a circuit diagram on the heater. what it may be is that the air path is obstructed by something, the element is reaching too high a temperature and shutting off, if it has a fan, the bearings might be dry - hey! don't ever use wd-40 for lubing motors. use a light machine oil. the bearings in most of these heaters are oil-lite - sintered bronze. the material is porous enough to pass oil to the bearing surfaces and is free floating in their mounts.

SOURCE: red caution light
The red light is in conjunction with a safety. This is there in case something goes wrong, the heater doesn't overheat and possibly catch fire. If its not getting too hot, and its sounds like its not. The safety needs to be replaced. It will be a little disc shaped thing with 2 wires connected to it. If this heater also has a tip over safety, there also may be some type of mercury switch too. If you are so inclined, when you find the safety disc it should have some numbers on it. This indicates the temperature it is made to turn off at. After removing it, connect the 2 wires together and turn the unit on with a thermometer in the spot where the disc was. If the temp. doesn't go higher than the #'s on the disc after 45 seconds like you said, then you know positively that is the problem. If it gets hotter very fast, then the elements need to be looked at for defects. If there are no numbers on the disc or you cant find a replacement, then it may just be easier to buy a new heater.

If the thermostat is ok which it probably is then your sequencer is most likely stuck i would say. You could verify that by removing 24 volts to the sequencer to see if it will shut down the heater
When low voltage from the thermostat is applied at the base of this sequencer it heats a bi-metal and turns on each coil and fan in a sequence that will insure the breaker don't throw from the power surge AND warm air comes out the vents when that fan comes on. I would start there.
