Default Kit Wine still cloudy

I have just finished a a Italian wine kit this one https://www.balliihoo.co.uk/register...red-p-691.html
Well done what said on the racked it a other FB or to be more precise a carboy done what they said but after 3 days the wine is still cloudy where the instructions said it should be clear. I must admit when I added the finishing ingredients I did not have a heat mat on the carboy but I do now. Was the right thing to do? Should I add more finnings and if so how much for a 23 litre carboy ? Or am I being to inpatient . But the instructions did say it would clear in 3 days which it has not.

You shouldn't be keeping it warm while it is clearing the colder it is the better.

Did you degas it before adding the finings and if so how?

Ignore instructions on times they are rarely right.

It will not have destroyed the finnings but will have slowed the clearing process down, i would give it a day and see if it start to clear as it cools, do you have finings that you can add if it doesn't work?
