You may have a problem with the blend door motors on the side of the heater box. As one other person said: "Look at the controls right above the driver's feet area toward the heater box". If they are moving properly all the way, when you move the selectors on the dash, then there may be a problem inside the heater box. If they don't move all the way, then the blend door motors may be bad or binding. Another common problem on these is the control head on the dash not working properly. The control head can be diagnosed with a scanner that can read codes for it. Hope this helps out.

SOURCE: Heat wont blow through heater or defroster vents

The door in the heater box is most likely stuck. It is located under the dash on the passenger side

SOURCE: heat won't blow on floor when in floor position on 2002 chevy s10

Your dial in your truck works off of a small vacuum line switching the gate for flow. I had the same problem in my s10 truck and it seemed like after a minute or so i would finally work. Come to find out there was a small rip in the hose next to the dial causing a leak.

SOURCE: my ac only blows from defrost and floor while set

Did this problem start after the battery was disconnected?

For the digital system disconnect the battery again for a few minutes, or remove the HVAC fuse for 2 minutes. Reconnect everything with the ignition off. Then turn the key to the RUN position, but don't start the engine. Don't touch the HVAC controls for 2 minutes, and you should hear the actuators and blower motor going through all the modes and speeds. This is recalibration. If you touch the controls during this time it will fail and you will have still air/flow problems.

If this does not solve the problem, you can take the dash apart to observe the mode actuator. It may need to be replaced. You may see it at www.parts4chevys.com or eBay.

No heat or defrost in my 2000 mercury sable


If you are referring to the air won't blow through the defrost vents or on the floor, you may have a stuck or broken blend door actuator. This part diverts air through the different settings: defrost, vent, floor etc. If you aren't getting warm or hot air regardless of the settings, you may either be low on coolant or have a bad thermostat.

Luke warm air blows out of vents only when set at defrost and floor.Had thermostat changed twice and cooling system flushed several times.


you may need to flush directly through heater core hoses...disconnect hoses and flush through both ways until runs clear...you may have to remove heater core to accomplish this...if clogged bad replacement may be necessary

Cabin Heat is Intermittent / Fluctuates / Cycles


You may have air trapped in the lines to or from the heater core.
If you (still) have a real radiator cap on the radiator, remove it with a cold engine, start and run the engine allowing it to warm up while watching the water/coolant level. Make sure the heater control is set to its highest heat setting while doing this. If it is trapped air, you may see it 'belch' after the engine is warm and the engine thermostat is open. Refill as needed if this is the case.
It's more difficult without direct radiator access and may require several cycles of hot/cold to allow refilling through the overflow.

Started out with cold air coming out the vents


I'm no 'expert' but it sounds like possibly 2 different problems. Your heat comes from warm/hot coolant circulating through the heater core, and the fan blowing air through/over it. If your thermostat is not opening the coolant won't circulate. Thermostat is a not too difficult or costly starting place. No air flow leads me to think you have a blower motor issue, perhaps start with the fuse. Hope this helps.

1998 Chevy S10 pickup air condition compres is on instead of heat


First be sure that you do not have the controls set to defrost the windows since on just about all vehicles nowadays with the controls set that way the air conditioner will be turned on...even if it is not so warm outside. So...be sure that you do not have any of the controls set to defrost and that the heater is turned all the way on.

It sounds like though that the control for the vents is not operating properly. This is a combination of mechanical movements of the vent flaps and small "air motors" that operate the flaps. These air units are controlled by air vacuum taken from the engine compartment through tiny hoses. If the hoses get cracks, holes or come loose from their fittings then your vents will not move correctly so it is a matter of looking and tracing each one of the hoses to make sure they are fastened correctly, have not come loose and are not cracked or leaking. The problem can even be in the engine compartment where the hose(s) connect to the engine vacuum system...so it will take lots of looking carefully with flashlights etc....good luck.

Fully warmed up; blowing hot and cold; Suzuki XL-7


Its just a vent damper plate not operating, it's like a gate which controls the flow of air,,usually they are operated by vacuum, or cables.
Service center time, unless you are handy with your own repairs.
