The reason the fan sounds louder is because it's working harder to circulate air through the car instead of it taking air from outside and cooling or heating it. Same reason it slows, it has less air to circulate.

How to determine bad actuator or bad recirculating


u have a loss of engine vacuum to the dash control that moves the actuators that change the air flow around to the diff locations of the dash. Start at the engine supply hose and work backwards, the vacuum line comes in on the passenger side from the engine bay, it is under the dash along with other plastic vacuum lines the supply line is black, u will need a MITYVAC brand tester to check the vacuum supply to the diff vacuum actuators in the dash.

BUMPING NOISE UNDER DASH


Most of the time this noise is heard when a temperature actuator has gone bad, you can check this by changing temperatures and noting if the noise changes in sound. If so then replaced the actuator. If no change is noted, then open and lower the glove box and while changing from a/c to max a/c, check that the recirculation door is moving into place and not flapping. if flapping, the recirculation door is broken and will need replacement.

Ac blows harder on norm than max (recurc)


There could be a recirculation vent door,stuck,or the blower motor is bad.Hard to tell .Not being there it is hard to diagnose.But it does sound like both of these symptoms,so I know what to tell you .Maybe more information would help,I don`t know.Rmove the blower motor and inspect it for broken,or cracked fan cage(squirrel cage fan).Also check motor for abnormal play(side to side movement).Hook fan up to battery and see if it runs fast and not vibrating,or noisy.I hope I was some help,If I can help,let me know.

Rhythmic noise on passenger side of dash.


It sounds like you have an hvac actuator problem.It could be the recirculate actuator either way the system should be scanned and after replacement it has to be calibrated.

No air flow in when I turn on the fan control switch


If you can hear the fan running, check for debris sucked up into air intake...passenger side under dash for recirculation intake. If you can't hear fan running, check heater fuse.

Clicking noise in passenger dash


This is a motor that controls the air doors like temperature, defroster, floor air and vent air distribution. You have up to three different ones and one of them need to be replaced.

Check the fan assembly probably located behind your glovebox. The fan could be off-center.
