  • Q:

    My ac worked fine last year. Didn't drive the truck all winter.when I went use the ac it gets cool but but not nearly cold enough. Had it checked and everything under the hood is working perfect. I dropped the glove box down figuring it was something inside the cab. I took the ac filters out and the evaporator was getting very cold but the blower was blowing hot air into it also. After further checking I found an upper door blend operator higher in the dash and when turning the controls I could see that it wasn't moving. I'm guessing that controls the air coming in to the cab or controls whether it should be cold air or hot air depending on what you want. Anyhow it's not corresponding with controls. I just wanna make sure I get the right one because I already replaced the lower one by your feet and that didn't change anything.

      Hi Whitey, glad to help you! Please check all the vents and be sure that air pressure is coming out of the vents that you have selected. Move the vent selector to see if the air moves to the proper vents. If changing the selected vent does not alter the flow of air, you likely have a mode door problem, which will require replacing the doors inside the dash that determine the direction of the air flow. The doors are known as mode doors, blend doors, or actuator doors. Sometimes an AC system with a mode door problem could be working fine, but the air flow is being directed somewhere else, like back out to the engine, instead of into the car. However, I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

    Asked on 2/26/2014 by Fred from tx

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hi Fred, glad to assist you! The Air Door Actuator is a motor that controls the opening and closing of the heater/coolant's duct system blend door. The blend door controls flow of air for heating and cooling the inside the passenger cabin of the car or truck. The Air Door Actuator drives a spline or spoke which controls the movement of the blend door. Air Door Actuators are replaced for many reasons. The spline, or spoke that drives the Blend Door will strip out or break over time due to excessive use or over torquing, electrical failure, or motor burnout. However, there could be many reasons causing this. This needs mechanic's expertise to determine. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.
