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

I have a 2002 explorer and air is blowing out of the defroster and not the dash vents. I just had the engine replaced another lovely ford defect (timing chain broke destroying my engine) and when I got it back the a/c had stopped blowing out of the 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.

2002 ford explorer air only blows through dash vents will not switch to floor or defrost vents


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.
