My heater is blowing cold air

I'm going to venture a guess here and guess that you're driving a Ford of some sort?

First, everyone needs to STOP assuming it's the Heater Core. It very well could be, it very well could NOT be. You need to go by process of elimination starting with the simplest first, so you don't WASTE money and parts on needless things.

Step 1.) Test the coolant system thoroughly. Hook it up and make sure fluid is being actually PUSHED through the cooling system first. I literally just got done working on a 2002 Ford Taurus that people were telling me the same damn thing, and guess what, good heater core, CLOGGED LINES. Some engines are designed in a way that causes build up, then that build up breaks free and starts clogging the lines and ports. A good coolant flush might eliminate the blowing of cold air. If not, move to step 2.
Step 2.) Check your thermostat. And with that, pay attention to the heat gauge on your vehicle. Does heat stay low? Does it go higher? If lower, your thermostat is stuck OPEN, and will cause LOW temps feeling like COLD air. If stuck shut, well then your car will run a little warm. In either case, it should be replaced.
Step 3.) Check the COOLANT CAP!!! I cannot stress this enough. Most, if not all, of the cooling systems in vehicles come with a PRESSURE cap, and if that cap loses pressure, you lose the ability to move fluid.
Step 4.) CHECK AND REPLACE HEATER CORE. Finally, the step you've been waiting for. Always fun(not really).

Hello Ron Carlson

Page 6 of 6...

Pretty straight forward refrigerator!

Although I agree with the first answer you got from Todd Marr...a lot of available volunteers here have been around a lot of blocks...
Can call out the Whirlpool & Frigidaire units you share parts with... and how to very cheaply you can
test various parts to bring you to your very quick victory...

I'm just saying, ice-maker, defrost issues, warm refrigerator side... Fast frost build-up... puddles?

If you'll pardon the pun ...

Why does my heat blow strong but not hot and windows fog but there's no antifreeze smell or leak

check that the heater control is opening the tap to allow coolant to flow through the heater core

Why does heater blow lukewarm air that turns cold?

An air bound heater core can cause this. A thermostat issue would cause it to overheat quickly (stuck shut) or cause the engine to take a long time to get up to normal operating temperature (stuck open).

Try this after the car has sat over night and is COLD.:

Top off the coolant RESERVOIR to the COLD MARK with a 50/50 mix of coolant and water when the engine and coolant are COLD. Replace the reservoir cap.

NEVER open the radiator cap when hot!!

Open RADIATOR cap - WHEN COLD - and top off radiator with the same 50/50 mix of coolant and water to just under the inner lip of the filler neck.

Start engine, turn heat to HOT and FAN to HIGH.

Watch the coolant level in the radiator. Maintain the level of coolant as close as possible to just under the filler neck lip. It is expected to fluctuate up and down as the thermostat opens to flood the radiator - and be pulled into the engine block. The more variation in the high and low indicates a fair amount of coolant has been lost. After the engine has gotten hot, you should feel hot air coming from the heater. Check the radiator level once more, top off and replace the radiator cap.

If still no heat, there may be a clog or restriction in the heater core hose. A cooling system flush should fix this, but can cost a few bucks at a Jiffy Lube or similar.

If you're losing coolant - that could be an indication of a leak (see puddles where you park?) due to a bad hose clamp or hole in a hose ($) or a bad gasket ($$$) or cracked engine block ($$$$). Look for white "smoke" (steam really) in the exhaust after the engine has warmed up to indicate that the coolant is entering a piston due to a gasket or block issue.

Good luck!

Refrigerator is warm and will not cool food and the freezer is iced up

Theres the problem an iced up freezer, the cold for the food compartment comes via a fan in the freezer, no flow, no cold, firstly defrost it completely, check fans are working, if they are ok then it's probably your defrost hester element.

My freezer is working fine, but my refrigerator is barely cool and both units are controlled by the same setting knob. This just happened all of a sudden. Everything in the refrig is spoiling.

It the fan blowing up in the freezer and no cool air is coming down to the fresh food section then I have seen this before. The drain for defrost is clogged. Instead of draining out it is pooling up between the freezer and fresh food side. You gotta thaw out the ice box and open the drain. Nothing to buy. Oil the fan motor with zoomspout oiler.

Refrigerator not cold

If you can hear the compressor running, then 99% of the time the evaporator core in the freezer has iced over and is not allowing air flow through the core to cool the freezer and the rest of the refrigerator, (air flow through the core is essential to the operation of the refrigerator) and this is because the defrost timer has malfunctioned and allowed frost to build up and ice over the core, and the defrost timer will no longer cycle the defrost and cooling modes.

Locate the defrost timer and it will have a knob like protrusion on it and it should be turning very slowly. Place a mark on the knob and the housing of the defrost timer and then check back after about a half an hour and the knob shoild have moved from where it was, and if it does not then the timer is stuck and will have to be replaced.

The evaporator/core can be accessed either through removing a panel on the rear of the freezer compartment, or by removing a panel on the bottom of the freezer compartment depending on if the refrigerator is a side by side or over under.

Luke warm air blows out of vents only when set at defrost and floor.Had thermostat changed twice and cooling system flushed several times.

you may need to flush directly through heater core hoses...disconnect hoses and flush through both ways until runs may have to remove heater core to accomplish this...if clogged bad replacement may be necessary

Heater and defrost blowing cold air

Check your engine cooling system for low coolant or a bad thermostat. That's where the heater and defroster get the heat. You may also have a clogged heater core.
