On the sides of the heater box there will be another black box attached to it, that has a motor in it with some plastic gears. when you switch to the floor this box gets an ohm reading telling it what position to turn to, and the plastic gears crack due to excessive heat. when the gear crack gets to where the other contact point is it stops, almost like it has no more teeth to grab onto. if you have pass & driver heat temps there will be a box for each side. usually its the one on the drivers side.

Heater blows air thru floor vents and dash vents but no air thru defrost windshield vent

Suspect a defective blend door actuator motor that controls airflow for the defrost. This electric motor may be defective and in some makes and models can be extremely difficult/expensive laborwise to replace

My 2008 Buick Rainier only blows air out the defroster vents

Defrost is the climate control default. This vehicle uses electronic blend door motors to control airflow direction. Suspect a problem with one of the motors. These motors can be labor intensive to access/change depending on location.You may want to have it serviced at a reputable repair facility

Why does My thermostat Not switch between ac,heat,defrost . there's cold air coming out of vents but not cold enough to be ac. Initially when this started the ac was blowing hot air

If the air flow cannot be controlled from vent/defrost/floor you may have a blend door issue. This is an electric motor that operates a door in the heating system to control airflow. There are usually 3 motors controlling airflow direction,heat and recirculation. The Ac not blowing cold may also be another problem. If the AC is operational, the compressor will be engaged and the Ac low pressure line under the hood will bw cold. If this is all ok then a blend door issue should be suspected

Sounds like the main controller has failed. You might try swapping it out with a used part.

'94 Camry windshied defroster gets no air flow. When switch is moved,it doesn't change airflow-always comes out ot the ducts facing the passenger area(top ducts)only.

The problem concerning the no air flow out the defrost duct on my mom's 94 Toyota Camry is that the rod link from the electric actuator to the vent / defrost flap became disconnected way up under the center left side under the dash. I had to remove the lower air duct from under the steering column for access to use a 1 inch hole saw to make an access hole on the upper side of the case tube opening to see where the rod came off the lever. I went to the local Toyota dealer to try to buy a retainer clip but the part guy told me that it was only sold as a complete housing piece which was very expensive and involved removing a big portion of the dash pad assembly to replace the housing.
At this point , I plan on reconnecting the rod to the lever by simply installing a special washer style retainer on to the end of the rod to keep it connected. You might find a retainer like this one in a carberator repair kit.

Same problem. motor works

adjust your mirror to center with your hand manually and try the switch again. if it still dosn't work switch to the other side mirror and see if the other side goes up/down. if it does then replace the side that's not going up and have to replace the whole assembly. can't just replace motor.
