Question about 1988 Chevrolet Blazer

Air Flow Problem for heater/ac on '88 S10 Blazer

The heater/AC on my '88 S10 Chevy Blazer blows hot/cold air well. However, when I adjust the selector to any of the AC choices, the air only blows on the floor rather than
the dash vents.

I've checked to see that the 2 vacuum hoses are connected to the heater/AC diaphragm on the floor. Maybe the other ends aren't connected.

Questions

1. Could this be the reason that the baffles don't adjust to bring the air to the dash vents?

2. If so, is there a diagram showing their location on the other side of the firewall?

3. Is there a handy "how to" cheat sheet to disassemble/reassemble the heating/AC system if it turns out that the diaphragm is bad?

My Chilton manual is lacking any information on how to troubleshoot this problem,

Thanks a million,

Jbil

SOURCE: Heat wont blow through heater or defroster vents

The door in the heater box is most likely stuck. It is located under the dash on the passenger side

SOURCE: bi-level on heat/ac does not blow air out the front dash vents. It is at least partially vacuum controlled.

Check under your hood for broken or loose vacuum lines. Also, the pot on the hood? i believe, on that one. There should be avacuum line running to it. Looks like a little bowling ball. With your engine running , listen for a hissing.

HVAC control head problem or it is the air Temp Control Valve problem. THe control head is the one with the buttons and knobs and the control vavle is located on the HVAC carrier assembly underneath dashboard (two of them one on left and one on right in center). This is a job for someone who has knowledge of HVAC and electrical on a GM vehicle.

Why is heater not blowing hot air on 99 chevy blazer


if the fan blower is working then it must be the heater valve inline with the heater hoses. Or the selector on the dash has broken and is not connected at the back. You have tried everything else. You were correct in what you wrote above and have tried so far

1996 chevy s10 pickup blows hot air all the time. even with everything turned off.


In my case (1995 S10) it was as simple as the temperature control potentiometer. The pot contacts were crushed, God knows what breaks and shorts happened there. Replaced the pot and all works like a charm. 3ffe43e2-1688-4bb5-ad86-58f1c719150e.jpg

My AC works but heater blows cold on my 99 Plymouth voyager


I used to install AC in those, so I might be able to help. It is either the temp adjustment linkage, or it is the accessory selector. When you go from AC to heater does the air move from the vents to blowing on the floor? If so then it is possible that the linkage to the temp controller has probably slipped off one of the levers that controls the incoming air, from cold to hot. It is an easy fix. It would have to be that, because if you couldn't switch from AC to heat, you can always make the AC hot with the temp control lever.

My 1994 Chevy Blazer S-10 is not blowing out any air when I turn the heater on...


Is the fan turning on? I assume so.. when you change the hot/cold selector do you hear the flaps inguage? could be the linkage there. Otherwise, check your coolant level - make sure your heater core isn't plugged (let engine heat up, then see if the heather both heater hoses going into the firewall are warm). If one is colder than the other, flush the heater core.

Ac blows hot air comp is running


Make sure that the tubing around the accumulator is getting cold.
If not, the refrigerant may not be charged up.
Otherwise, the vacuum motor for selecting cold air may be not working correctly causing heated air from the heater core to be routed to the interior of the car.

Do you hear the vacuum motors working when adjusting the heat to cold selector? or changing the thermostat temperature if so equipped?

On my 1995 chevy blazer s-10 my face vents are not blowing air


Your heater valve is stuck open, also in a pinch you can crimp off your hose to the heater coil at fire wall. Try to find the heater valve vacumb hose under the hood see if it is bad and fixit. or some models have a cable to the valve could be broken.
