How much did ( water )did you have to to up?
Check the thermostat or could be an air lock to the heat exchanger.
20 min seems like a long time with out cooling.
Did the light come on or did you just notice something not working right?

Hope its the impeller stripped out if not case has to be split and might be gear on crank.
