1993 Ford Explorer heat/air controls

1993 Heat/Air controls aren't working. The sliding control arm that directs the air to the desired location isn't changing the air flow. It's stuck on midlevel and won't change to defrost or floor etc.

You will need to remove the climate controls from the dash and check to see if the cable has fallen off.........the other end of the cable is behind the glove box,removing it should give you access to check if it has fallen off there. replaacement cables and clips to hold it at the ends are probably only avail at a ford dealer
Hope this helps!

What part controls switching air/heat from defrost to bi-level to floor & where is it located?

In the attached drawing, Part 32 moves Part 26 to direct the air flow to the desired locations. It uses vacuum to operate. The actuator may be bad or the vacuum hose my have come loose when the heater core was changed. With the car running but the blower off stick your head up under the dash on the passenger side and see if you hear a hissing sound. If so it's probably just a vacuum hose come off.

Heater does not blow hot or even warm air

This is not a heater valve problem, for one thing there isn't any such part in the model. The problem is a defective air temperature control blend door inside the air ducting.

When the heat is on there is a clicking sound like a watch and it is blowing cold air in the front main vents. i have seperate climate control for the rear vents and it is blowing hot air.

the operating mechanism is playing up and may need changing ,it has a vacumn operated control arm and what i thnk is the problem is the diaphragm has split inside the unit so its not opening to allow the hot air to flow over the radiator inside the heater

Heater hot/cold control knob doesn't work need to have the hot air.

Check the motor on the top of the heater plenum. It turns a shaft to shift the blender door which controls the input to this plenum either the heater core or the evaporator core (ac). You may find the motor is OK but the shaft (plastic) has broken and the blender door has to be replaced. This is a costly job that involves removing this plenum after removing the dash. A shortcut I found online was to cut a hole under the blender door and replace it through this opening. After replacing you can seal up the hole with epoxy. I cut three sides of a square hole leaving the back uncut. Pull down and the blender door can be removed. My problem was on a 1997 Explorer. _6.gif

I have a 93 lesabre. The air and heat controller has a mind of it's own. When a light is lit on the controller you have control of the functions. When no light is lit all you have control of is the...

Hey Cap'n, all the heat and A/C is actuated by the controls and these controls are ALL vacuum actuated. Make sure you have vacuum to the controls from the engine. There's a 4 inch round ball under the hood on the pass side near firewall. This ball is the vacuum reservoir, must have vacuum to and from then thru the firewall to said controls. If there's vacuum everywhere, it HAS to work properly. Check all vacuum lines for leaks, cracks, connections, all the above.
