Whirlpool selector switch reassembly

Dear Sirs:
I need to reassemble a selector switch (airflow and contol switch) for my Whirlpool air conditioner model AC1002XS. It is the switch that selects the functions of " high cool / low cool/ fan only/ off ". Several websites show exploded diagrams for the selector switch for the newer models of AC1002XSO and AC1002XS1 which do not match my selector
switch.
My original intention for disassembly was to rotate the circular plastic
wheel from the "off" position to the ''high cool" position since the knob and stem were accidentally broken off. But, after removing the brass face plate
from the switch, two metal pieces fell out. Each piece is 1 7/8 long by
3/16 wide and the thickness of a business card. In the exact middle of
each piece is a channel or a speedbump , depending on which side you
are observing. I speculate that these might be some kind of spring clips,
but I can''t find any slots in which to insert the ends.
Please advise me on how to reassemble this switch.

Thanks,
Joe Gracki

    Whirlpool no longer makes a replacement switch for my air conditioner , so "buying a new switch" is not an option.

    I reassembled the switch without the two metal pieces that fell out, and found that the air conditioner works just fine without them. Apparently they were not essential parts.

Problem with airflow selector switch


The clicking is caused from a blend door motor not working properly. This motor moves a door in the heater box to control airflow. There may be 2-3 motors in the heating/AC system and one of them is causing the problem and will have to be changed

. Air won't blow out of the floor or center vents just defrost ? Do you have manual or automatic climate control ?
Air Flow Control
Air flow control is accomplished in the following manner:
  • Primary control is through the function selector knob mounted on the A/C-heater function selector switch, which is part of the integrated control panel.
  • The function selector knob has the following positions: OFF, MAX A/C, A/C, PANEL, PANEL/FLOOR, FLOOR, FLOOR/DEFROST and DEFROST. The A/C-heater function selector switch combines a vacuum selector valve with an internal electrical switch.
  • The vacuum selector valve directs source vacuum to various vacuum control motors (18A318). Refer to the Vacuum Control Diagram , System Airflow Schematics and Vacuum Control Chart .
  • Two internal, single-pole electrical switches are also controlled by the A/C-heater function selector switch. The combination of these electrical switches controls the electrical supply to the A/C clutch and heater blower motor switch (18578).
  • The position of the function selector knob determines the manner in which the system will operate.
  • Each position of the function selector knob is detented for positive engagement.
  • Vacuum Control Motors The vacuum control motors (18A318):
    • are located on the A/C evaporator housing, A/C recirculation air duct and heater air plenum chamber (18471).
    • direct system airflow to the vehicle interior as determined by the remote climate control module or manual override.
    • The five-passenger seating configuration has an additional vacuum control motor mounted on the heater air plenum chamber to control airflow to the rear seat A/C register (19893).

I have a new 5 ton Grand Aire A/C. It seems to take much longer to cycle than my old unit did. Also my plenum is sweating in my attic? Is this normal? Any Suggestions?


sounds like poor airflow if unit is same size as old equipment and duct work is sized correctly you can try raising fan speed if using a pleated type 90 day filter switch to fiberglass non-pleated type filter that restricts less airflow. Also check return air for leaks you could be introducing unfiltered hot air from attic or enterior walls.

MY DISTRABUTION DIAL FOR DEF.,VENT, ETC IS IN DEFROST AND WON'T CHANGE. THE DIAL TURNS BUT NOTHING CHANGES. I NEEN SOME ADVICE ON WHAT TO DO TO FIND PROBLEM AND FIX. THANKS GENO


Here is the info. I hope the pictures show up. please rate assistance. thx.

Air distribution within the vehicle is determined by the function selector switch position. Two airflow mode doors are used to direct airflow within the heater core and evaporator core housing. The function selector switch/cable assembly is used to position these airflow mode doors. Refer to Section 412-00 for description and operation of each of the system functions.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Function Selector Cable Assembly
The function selector cable assembly moves the airflow mode doors to the desired position using a 2-sided pull-pull type cable assembly. The function selector controls the cable movement. The end of the cable assembly attaches to the airflow mode door/temperature blend door actuating assembly which transfers the cable movement to the 2 airflow mode doors.
An electrical switch is incorporated into the function selector to notify the A/C switch assembly if DEFROST or FLOOR/DEFROST is selected. When DEFROST or FLOOR/DEFROST is selected, the A/C switch assembly will disable the RECIRC request button and send an A/C request to the powertrain control module (PCM) regardless of the A/C request button indicator ON/OFF status.
