Hi. The 2 most common causes of this is 1) lack of air flow due to the pollen filter being blocked; 2) the aircon has no gas, and is not drying the air properly.

My front defrost wont work

If the moisture is oily, your heater core could be leaking.
If the moisture is dry, check to see if your ac compressor is running in defrost mode.
The air cond dries the air in defrost mode.

2002 Ford Explore front defroster not getting any airflow. All the other HVAC works and airflow is coming out of all the other vents, just not the front window defroster. Hoping it's just a fuse, but I...

I'm thinking the wire cable that controls the front defroster fell off under the dashboard. It's happended to me on an older vehicle. Does the defroster lever feel different (easier to move) than the other levers?

Defroster & floor blowers don't work but front facing vents do

There are what they call mode door's these days they have a electrical motor that turnes the door to different posistions...sounds like yours is become broken. It would depend on your expertise in the ac & heating system area to replace the part. Sometimes easy and most of the times the dash has to be removed.
