I just fixed mine. It would NOT get air to the defroster. The lever that opens and closes a door that directs the air flow to the defroster was broken. To be more specific, the plastic lever the actuator attaches to was broken. The actuator and the vacuum system were operating properly. It is simple to see but hard to get to. Remove the glove box and look up and to the left for a silver vacuum controlled actuator and arm. I was able to fabricate another lever and attach it to what was left of the OEM lever.

SOURCE: climate control system only blow air out defrost vent

there is a good chance that you blend air door is stuck closed over your heater core and therefore not allowing the heat to flow, also your door that opens and close your direction of flow from the floor ,das,vent and defrost.your going to have to remove the lower cowling of the dash on the passenger side analso some of the center dash to actually check to see if the cable,servo motors. are acuating the doors.the issue could be just a stuck door or a misaligned cable or that it came off. that falls under the mechanical side of probabilities. electrical would most likely be a faulty selector switch or a servo motor

SOURCE: 2002 ford explorer will only blow air out the

Inside the venting is a flap that is controlled by a vacuum operated actuator. This vacuu hose also runs to your control panel.. Either the vent is stuck, the actuator is faulty, or there is a bad/leaky vacuum hose

SOURCE: PROBLEM WHEN SELECTING THE DIRECTION FOR THE AIR

Sounds like you have a supply vacuum problem. When you lose supply vacuum to the control head it defaults to defrost.

SOURCE: 2005 explorer only blows ac out defrost vents why?

Defrost is the default position, The control head is most likely electronic on this model, the actuators that switch the modes are little electric motors. There was an issue with the plastic doors that direct airflow, they would break and jamb. If the control head were to be the older style that uses vacuum then I would say that you have lost vacuum to the inside of the vehicle. If this is the case look for a broken vacuum hose coming to or through the firewall, ususlly on the passenger side under the hood close to the HVAC pipes/lines in the firewall.

On my 2005 Ford Taurus the air conditioning is coming out the defrost vents.


There is a flapper or trap door in the dash board that diverts air flow to various vents, defrost, floor, face, etc. If that stops working it will get stuck in the default position which is usually the defrost vents.

If you have a vacuum operated system you can check the vacuum hose for the system in the engine compartment for integrity. If that is ok then you have to get to the vacuum switch in the dashboard and probably replace it due to leaking vacuum - labor intensive and not cheap.

Any time the dashboard has to be removed you are in trouble money wise.

Ac is blowing out of defrosterandnot panels in the dash. Air is cool cold air will blow out of rear seat panel/vent 1998 ford explored


The most common cause is a bad blend door actuator which controls air flow throughout the cabin. When air flow only flows from 1 section (either floor, vent, or defrost) it's an indication that the blend door actuator is either stuck or broken.

2005 Explorer, control switch will not allow fan to blow to any vents except defrost. Air blows cold in ac mode but only to windshield. Rear air control seems okay.


This sounds like a vacuum leak. When there is a vacuum leak it defaults to defrost as a safety precaution. You will have to track down where the leak is and repair it.
