Heater controll switch


Hello, I want to tell you about some of the knobs for the temperature control switch, if that is the switch you are referring to.

The way some of the knobs are made, they have a 1/2 moon shape with a metal clip inside them on the backside of the knob. The 1/2 moon shape is also present on the control shaft the knob fits onto. When the knob breaks and splits, the knob rotates around the temperature control shaft without moving anything. From the driver's view, the knob is normal.

You would need to pry off the knob and inspect it, then rotate the temperature control shaft with your fingers or lightly grab it with pliers.

Heater not hot temperature gauge moves ,shows it is hot but air flow and air temperature not hot


Hello, What you need to do is let the truck warm up and then feel the heater hoses. If the heater hoses are hot, the problem is under the dash in the ductwork doors or the heater knob is cracked.

If you have a nonDigital heater control with just a knob, they are prone to break. They run about $9 at a Dealer and many Salvage yards won't let go of them without selling the whole heater control. Since the shaft of the heater is plastic, you can gently grab the heater knob shaft after you remove the knob and turn it with a pair of pliers.

Your heat should work. If the heater does not work and you have water flow in the heater hoses under the hood; the remaining problem is with a ductwork door. Either the actuator (sometimes callled a motor,solenoid,dashpot,) is broken or a plenum door has jumped its mount and is stuck.

If you do not have hot hoses at the heater you need to check your heater water control valve. Some models use them, some models just rely on the ductwork to reroute the heat in the Summer. This valve would be where one of the heater hoses goes to under the hood by the Firewall. It may be controlled by Vacuum or Electric or a cable.

That pretty much covers it. I hope my solution is very helpful to you. I had to replace the knob on my 99 F150 and learned how common this defect is and what the Salvage yards are doing.

Hello jeffgranstro
Sorry to say there's no easy button in the automotive world yet. You're heater controls are cable
operated and a cable problem most likely caused the knob problem. If you just want a temporary
fix, remove the control assy. from the dash. The front trim cover is held by 8 clips 2 top 2 bottom
and 2 on each side, with a small thin screwdriver, gently pry around the cover till it pops off.
At this point you should be able to see if there are screws or clips that hold the assy. in place.
The objective is to remove the problem cable from the assy. and pull it down from under the dash
where you can operate it with a pair of baby vise grips. Next, put the rest of the heater control assy. and trim plate back in place, and use those controls normaly. Thats one way to get by what is a stupid design to start with. Hope this helps.

Lack of heat


The plates protect the burners and help disperse the flame more evenly across the grill surface. Make sure the tank is completely open (knob on top of tank) and that when the burner is turned up to high, the flames out of the burners are about 1 1/2 to 2" long, mostly blue in color. If they are smaller, and the tank is open all the way, the regulator hose may be defective.
