Hello, I have a new to me 1999 Chevy Astro van. The blower works but air only comes out the defrost vents. I checked the resister and electrical connection. I believe they work. I am female and hoping to learn to fix my own van :)

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The issue that you are having is not going to be with the blower motor. There Your issue is either going to be a broken vacuum hose or the mode door. Here I am providing description of operation for the air distribution.

Here, I am providing testing for the a/c system for your issue. Along with the replacement information for the door. This vent door directs the air from the floor to the feet to the defrost vents. If the vacuum hose for it fails, then it will default to the defrost position.

I have replace the vacuum hose that goes to the reservoir canister as it was completely falling apart. No i have air blowing to either the defrost, the top front vents but not the lower vents and it will blow either hot or cold air, which ever I have it set on. So I'd like to know how to check out the door that directs flow into the lower vent. Also, the blower is working but does not seem that strong. Is there other hoses or things that I can check or actuators or???

Is there a manual that you can recommend that would have diagrams of the engine etc. that would be useful for doing repairs?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Do you have a diagram of the vacuum system?
Chevy Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

I will check for this information. Give me just a moment. Also, the first two attachments are just description of the system to help you have an understanding of how the system operates. Just a moment, please.
