This sounds like an actuator. There is usually several (three or four) on different vehicles. There will be at least one that directs the air to different locations such as defrost. You also may have a defective selector switch. I would check this before I changed the actuator or blend door. If the blend door is defective, this usually calls for totally removing the entire dash panel and usually requires several hours work. If you have to have a repair shop do this it can be very expensive.

2002 ford explorer AC and heat blowing in dash, but very weak from the vents


On the motorcraft parts web site, you can blow up
a picture of the HVAC Blend Door Motors & locations,
as well as part numbers

You can get failed motor from Amazon

With knowing where the motors are located, try switching
the air flow modes manually, to see what positions do not work

Then you know what motors to replace

I also have professional scan tool software & can see the codes
for the motors in enhanced data.

2002 ford explorer....Just changed the blower motor. Everything worked fine for a few days and now the air will only come out of the defrost and floor vent areas. When I turn the vent selector switch...


Check under dash in duct system for any vacuum hoses blown off then check under the hood on the passenger side of engine compartent.If all hoses are connected then you will have to check the heater blend door actuator and the heater blend door lever for proper operation.

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.

2002 explorer a/c blowing out of defrost and not dash vents


The direction of the air flow (dash/defrost/floor, etc) is controlled by vacuum going to the switch. There may be a vac line that didn't get connected or was damaged when they put the replacement engine in it. Check the lines on the firewall to make sure nothing is loose.
