vents are blocked so air is diverted to other vents, check and clean if necessary

SOURCE: HVAC vent selector does not function. Air flow is

THe blend door seems to be stuck. When you change settings from defrost to floor air or, vent, the blend door opens and closes directing the air to the place you want it to go to. I have had some success spraying a lubricating oil such as WD40 under the dash on the blend door. You need to get under the dash with a flashlight to locate it. It looks like a flap. Spray it with a couple of shots of the WD40. Go easy on the spraying as you may be inhaling the fumes. Keep the doors and windows open to minimize the fumes. Wait about 1/2 hour and try the A/C functions. (defrost, floor, vent air)

SOURCE: heater/ac door actuator isnt workin right. air

Sounds like either the computer that controls the auto climate control has gone out or you could have a vacuum leak. I would definitely check the vacuum leak first. I took my 98 Lesabre to a repair shop several years ago for the same problem. When I picked it up they told me my computer was out and it would cost around $600 to fix. As an alternative, they had unhooked and rerouoted vacuum lines, breaking a tube off the controls under the right side of the dash. They told me that they would have to remove my glove box each spring and fall and reconnect the vacuum lines to change the airflow from floor to dash and vise versa. My fix was to run the lines under the dash just beneath the ash tray and connect shut off valves to the vacuum lines. Now when I need to use the AC I can change the flow of the vacuum by simply turning these two valves so that the flow changes from floor to dash or back. I know this is pretty jack leg but the damage had been done and this has actually worked pretty good.

SOURCE: 1998 Buick LeSabre Custom I will

Hi! It may not be a vaccum problem. I think that the hoses that goes thru the main vent is the problem. They may have fall thats why theres no air coming out of the main vents only on the defrosters. Check the hoses and connect them to the main vents and it will resolve this. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

2002 Silverado wont change from defrost to floor


either the heater control or the lil motor that adjusts the door is shot.
i believe the motor is on top of the heater box behind the radio for the vent function there is also a blend door motor on the side (hot to cold) of the heater box.unplug the vent motor cycle the defrost/ floor knob and test for power . no power bad heater control .power present bad vent door motor. auto wreckers are the best place for these parts (cheapest) some will also test/ install

1998 chevy blazer heater problems. wont switch from defrost to floor. stuck on vents right now. how do I fix this problem.


Most likely either the vent switching mechanism is dirty and won't switch the flaps -or- most likely the vacuum that is used to turn the vent flaps is either leaking and not pulling enough vacuum. You will have to get underneath the dash near the center, to check and see if you can manually move the vent flaps. If so, then most likely it is a vacuum leak in a vacuum line to the flap mechanism.
