Transaction Logs not deleting old backups

I have a DB Maintenance plan that is also backing up trx logs hourly as well as full backups nightly. The old full backups delete themselves properly after 3 days but the trx logs are not deleting files older than 1 week. Does anyone have any ideas why? Thank you. Don
Take a look at this link and stop using maintenance plans as they tend to be flaky at times. Satya SKJ
