In the vent piping deep under the dashboard...the door is usually controlled by vacuum servos.  Generally the door it's self doesn't go bad, it's an associated component.

Heater does not work, doors open ok but no heat

Air Temperature Control Blend Door Failure No Heat or no AC (dependes on where door sticks)

In all modern cars there is a tiny DC electric motor driven gear drive that moves a plastic door that blends heated and cooled air from the AC and the heater core, this is called (interestedly enough) the air temperature control blend door actuator. The motor that moves this door fails because the door starts sticking from warping, most common complaint is no heat but it can be no AC as well. To replace these parts (blend door and blend door actuator) you must remove the entire dash from the car. Always have this problem confirmed by a dealer or qualified repair shop as it is a very expensive repair.

Other causes of no heat in the cabin are engine thermostats that are stuck open (engine runs cold) or air bubbles in the cooling system.

1997 Lincoln Town Car; nothing but heat; loud clicking under dash finally stopped but turning on climate control/vents only results in high temperature heat. Sounds like a blend door problem, but is it...

check your vaccum lines behind the dash. if you find the one that goes to the blend door, put some vaccum on it and see if it opens and closes for you. if not, then yes, your blend door is broken. if it closes, check your temp control gauge.

the part u are referring to is the temperature control blend door actuator motor, it is about center of air ducting, in order to access the part u must remove the entire dash assembly, not a job for a DIYer, 12-15 hour job.

96 lincoln town car with climatecontrol does notturn off heat

The blend door actuator motor is located under the front center of the dash at the bottom of the windshield. It does require the removal of the dash. I have changed several of them myself. You can usually tell if it is bad by a clicking sound coming from that area of the dash. It is an electrical motor and it is a plastic gear about the size of the tip of your little finger that causes the failure.

The heater and a/c blend door actuator motor is located behind the center of the dash just below the windshield. The steering column must be detached and lowered and the dash must be removed to access the blend door motor.
