Question about Jeep Liberty
It sounds like you have a broken door in the hvac box. Check the
mode doors and actuator operation first.
1)Vacuum line and Connectors.
2)Panel door Actuator.
3)Vacuum line and connectors.
4)Floor/defrost door actuator.
Some operation info for testing:
NOTE: This vehicle uses vacuum to operate only the recirculation door. All other controls are cable operated.
When vacuum is supplied by the A/C-heater control to the recirculation door actuator, the recirculation door moves to the RECIRC position. The actuator is spring loaded so the door moves to the Outside-air position when there is no vacuum supplied. The operation of the door can be viewed by removing the blower motor and looking up into the HVAC unit inlet.
Normally, vacuum is supplied to the actuator by placing the recirculation control knob in the RECIRC position. The Mode and the recirculation control are mechanically interlocked so the recirculation control cannot be placed in the RECIRC position if the mode control is at/or between the mix and defrost positions. Vacuum is supplied to the actuator only when recirculation control is at the RECIRC position. If the recirculation control is between the Outside-air position and RECIRC position the system will still be in the Outside-air position. If the recirculation control is in the RECIRC position and the mode control is moved from the floor to the defrost positions, the recirculation control will move from the RECIRC position, to the Outside-air position beginning at the mix position. This is to help prevent window fogging
The doors are located in the box halves(upper and lower).
Yes, check vac and lines. If you have a hand held vac pump you can apply vac to see if they work and hold vac, as they leak sometimes.
You can also disconnect the actuators and try to operate the doors to see if they are broken or stripped out.
The hvac box calls for dash removal. It can be a daunting task for the do-it-yourselfer.
The blower motor resistor is mounted to the rear side of the HVAC housing on the passenger side of the vehicle.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

There are vacuum lines that control some of it. There are 2 halves to the hvac box and requires the whole dash be removed to replace. If you have handheld pump you can check the vac to see if its working or if it's leaking at all, you can remove the actuators to see if the doors are working or are stripped. You may want to consider professional repair for this job.
