97 A/C problem

Hi all y'all - hoping someone here has a suggestion for me to get my a/c blowing out of the proper vents. Out of the blue the a/c began blowing out of the defrost vents on the dash rather than through the proper vents and it's quite uncomfortable in the Florida heat and humidity!

Any other description you need to answer? Please let me know.

I appreciate any help y'all can give.

Renee

WikiAnswers - The temperature control module in your 1997 ford explorer 8 cyclinder is constantly in high heat the switch for air flow works but if you switch to ac it blows hot air however the max ac blow cold air might help

Re: 97 A/C problem

Thanks for the reply 2007Stang - this doesn't appear to be my problem though - it IS cold air that is coming out of defrost vents and it doesn't matter which setting the control is on or what level I have the blower set on.

Re: 97 A/C problem

Thanks guys - I hadn't clicked on the link yet before I replied - it does indeed sound like the blending box. Am now doing a search for a diagram so that I can possibly fix it myself. I have done a quick search for a "service" manual on my model but not having very good luck - with it's age I'll probably have to try the ebay route.
