Unhappy Furnace on 13--36 FL

So I noticed that my furnace kicks on and the upstairs vent will put out air middle section by kitchen will put out air.. nothing in bedroom??

test #1cover upstairs cover with a book and cover kitchen vent with book to see if I was getting more pressure to move to bedroom (no luck)
test #2 got in to storage compartment to look at vent hoses coming out of the back of furnace everything seems fine. so (no luck again)

test #3 this was my last option and for some reason I knew I wasn't going to get anything out of it but I sure tried.... stuck the vacuum down the vent hole and hoped some lint or paper or what ever come out .... didn't happen.

any ideas I ran out of them.........................

I would try taking the bedroom floor vent off and putting your phone camera down in the duct and face it towards the front, take a number of pictures with the flash on.
If you do not see any thing, take the floor vent off by the kitchen where you have air flow, put your phone camera down in the duct and face it towards the back, take a number of pictures with the flash on.
When taking the pictures you may even shine a small flash light down the duct to light it up further down than the camera flash.
You may be able to see the restriction / blockage.

Several owners in the past have experienced this issue and It turned out that The connection to the floor vent behind the basement wall had disconnected(not the furnace plenum connections but up where the duct meets the floor register). Twice I had to reconnect mine and on the second time, I actually added screws to keep the connection together and then tape with aluminum tape to seal it. I haven't heard of any one having this problem for awhile but maybe Redwood is back to it's old tricks.

That's great, did removing the debris correct the air flow issue in the bedroom ?
