In addition to faulty actuator motors, the blend door itself can also be broken. This happened on my Tahoe. Typically it is a very labor intensive and costly fix to replace a broken blend door, as the dash must be removed and the plenum assembly replaced. There is a DIY kit from heatertreater.net that provides steel hardware as well as instructions on how to perform the repair by removing the glove box rather than the entire dash.
This is also an alternative to replacing the 'difficult to access' top actuator motor underneath the dash. The kit contains a single blend door which converts the dual control to single control, and is operated off of the bottom actuator motor, which can be accessed by removing the glovebox. If you are having issues with your blend door, or the 'top blend door actuator motor behind the dash' it is worth looking into.

Most likely needs a LH (bottom) temp actuator. Located in the center of the dash on the bottom, you have to remove the hush panel on the rh side of the truck

1999 chevy silverado heater fan only blows cold air , both coolant lines in are hot


I like that you were knowledgeable to check both coolant lines tells me you are getting hot coolant through the heater core next thing to check will be the blend door on the inside of your vehicle. The blend door is a door that switches from cold air duct to heater duct depending on what you are using at the time. If it is stuck on the cold air duct you will not get any heat sometimes these doors are vacuum actuated and sometimes they are electrically actuated most the time you are able to see the movement of the motor from inside if you don't see any movement but you hear it move chances are it is the door blend I hope this helps.

Left Vents blow warm/hot air when calling for cold air


Usually a sign of a faulty blend door under the dash.
The blend doors direct air thru the ac and heater core along with the upper and lower vents.

1997 chevy silverado blows hot air only through vents


If you know for a fact the compressor is running and one of the lines is cold, I would look for a blend door problem. The blend doors direct air thru the heater and evaporator.

Climate control blows cold on one side and hot on the other should I buy a new climate control?


this is caused most often by out of phase climate zone blend door actuators, it is a very hard problem to repair, some luck in fixing it comes from removing the negative battery cable for 5 minutes to try and re-phase/sync the door actuators,if the one door will not change temp then it is more than a door sync issue and can require replacement of the blend door actuator, are the outputs of the 2 sides just reversed? that is to say will they change from hot to ac even though one is hot and one cold and visa versa?

Heating system only blows out hot air through the vents


I would look at the air blend doors first, it sound like they are not working or your control in the dash is not working send a signal to them. they work by changing the air from hot to cold or in between.
