Fixed one of these recently--it was a "T" in the vacuum line from the engine near the control switch. The "T" branches to a separate switch on the panel. I cut out the old "T" and spliced in a new one.
Your leak may be elsewhere. Typically, it's where the vacuum line connects to the engine intake manifold, where a hase is used to make the connection there. The other typical failure is the control switch itself. You can access the back of the control panel by taking out 4 screws and pulling it forward. Pull the vacuum connector off the switch and start the engine. The black line coming into the connector should have the engine vacuum on it. If no vacuum, check that "T" and the connection to the engine. If you have vacuum to the switch, the switch is probably bad. You can verify by putting the connector back on and listening for a leak in the switch. If I'm not making sense or you're not familiar with vacuum controlled HVAC, please reply with any questions.

The ac on my 1998 ford ranger only blows out the defrost vent and floor vent. How do I fix it?


Almost sounds like the actuators are inop. depending on which style you have, some are electrical motors and some are vacuum. These control the mode doors which move to deflect air to various vents.

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.

No heat - ac stays on blowing through defrost vents


If you have the heater directed to the windshield, the AC will turn on. Move the control away from defrost.
