I have a problem with th ac not blowing out of front vints

My ac is working but it will not blow out of the vents I can feel them blowing it only working in the floor and the top

My car has 10 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
Hi there. Typically this is due to the operation or vent selector switch being damaged. There are a few different individual components that comprise this system, the switch itself on the dash, a bracket that controls the vent director and the director itself. It might be a good idea to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location to complete an AC is not working inspection to determine what is damaged and what repairs will be needed to fix this issue.

The most common problems that cause a lack of airflow include frozen coils, broken fan and restricted airflow due to dirty air filters or vent obstruction. However, there are many other issues that can lead to minimal airflow, so it may be necessary to ask the professionals.
Your car`s air-conditioning stopped working most likely because of a freon leak or a bad compressor. While these causes may be the simple to spot reasons that your air-conditioning isn`t cooling in your vehicle, a dirty cabin filter or a bad belt could also be the problem.
Nine times out of 10, weak airflow is caused by a clogged up cabin air filter. Over time, this filter catches all dirt and debris, which can build up and slow or stop the flow of air. It`s typically located under the dash on the passenger side or inside the glove box and should be cleaned or replaced regularly.
If you experience the symptom of the AC blowing hot or cold air on one side but not the other and it`s accompanied by a clicking or ticking sound from the dashboard, it probably means a gear in the temperature blend door actuator is faulty and the actuator needs to be replaced.
If a duct is blocked, some rooms won`t heat or cool the way they`re supposed to. Because the rooms can`t reach the temperature you`ve set on your thermostat, your HVAC system will be working constantly to keep up.
The blower motor is responsible for sending air through the vents of your car. Over time, blower motors can become damaged, or completely fail. In which case, air will no longer come out of your vents.
This can be caused by a variety of factors including a blown fuse, loose wiring, a problem with the dual or single capacitors, or a defective motor. If you suspect that your ceiling fan has electrical issues, you`ll need to have it repaired by a qualified electrician.
Car AC Not Blowing Cold Air: A Bad Fuse

Find the fuse associated with the A/C blower motor. If the blower motor fuse is still in-tact, your problem is located elsewhere. If the fuse is blown, simply replacing the fuse with an identical fuse of the same amperage rating could get your system working again!

If the fan stops turning, air will stop moving through the system. A number of things could cause this to happen, from tripped circuit breakers to a faulty thermostat. However, it is also possible that the blower motor has stopped working. Typically, blower motors have a very long life.

Overheats When Blowing Warm With Heat & AC But Not When Blowing Cold AC
ANSWER : Hello, thank you for writing in. There are so many different codes being triggered, that it is unlikely all of these systems are having issues at once. We need to focus in on the fact the engine is overheating at all. You will want to check the level and condition of the coolant and the overflow tank. If the level is full then you may have an issue with the thermostat, radiator cap, or water pump. These can all be tested and changed relatively easily. If the main cooling system is okay, you will want to look into the heater core and climate control module. For more diagnostic help, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.

My ac only blows through defrost vents
ANSWER : Hello. From the symptoms you’ve described it would appear to me that the vehicle may have more than one problem.

The hissing coming from the AC condenser may be a sign of a potential leak, especially if it occurred after you added refrigerant. I’d check to make sure the refrigerant is at the correct level and that there are no leaks present, as any AC refrigerant leaks can cause problems with the functionality of the AC system.

In regards to the air only blowing from your defroster vents, I would check the vehicle’s AC mode switches, and blend door actuator to make sure they are operating soundly. The AC switch controls the modes that the AC blows through, so any issue with the switch may cause problems with what vents the system can operate from.

The blend door actuator is the component that mechanically selects what vents the AC system works through, and if it fails or gets stuck, can produce the symptoms you are experiencing.

If you need assistance with these checks, see the help from a certified mechanic who can diagnose your AC issue firsthand and fix it accordingly.

2008 VW Jetta AC not cold
ANSWER : Hi Allen. By far the best way to have your AC system correctly diagnosed is by having an AC inspection completed first. By having one of our professional mobile mechanics come to your location to diagnose the issue correctly, it significantly minimizes the mistakes in completing the wrong service. In your case, the issue could be as simple as needing to have the AC system recharged, or there is an existing leak that needs to be repaired before refilling the refrigerant. Best economic bet is to have the AC inspection completed first.

Ac blows hot in summer heat blows cool in winter
ANSWER : I can understand your confusion and frustration, I believe your Kia is experiencing a few different issues that could all together duplicate the concerns you are experiencing.

It would appear that one or more blend doors, these are inside the dashboard that direct or block fresh air from outside the vehicle entering the cabin, is stuck open. This would explain why you experience cold air in the winter and hot air in the summer. There is a different blend door that will direct or block heat from the heater core inside your dashboard, this door may also be stuck. In regards to the air conditioning, there are a few reasons why it is not working as it is supposed to, however the most common is due to lack of refrigerant.

As you can see, there is a lot going on, therefore I recommend enlisting help of a certified mobile mechanic to stop by and go over your Sedona with you in person and diagnose why you are experiencing these temperature concerns.

Front A/C fan not blowing, but front seat cooling and rear A/C fans are working.
ANSWER : What you are describing sounds like a failure of the blower motor that circulates air in the HVAC system, however, there are certain faults that could occur in the electric circuit that powers the blower motor. If power is reaching the blower motor when the blower switch is in the on position and the blower motor is not functioning as intended then the blower motor is condemned and replaced. On the other hand, if there is no power, then the blower switch and the plug connection on the back of the switch, as well as the rest of the circuit should be inspected. If the circuit includes a blower motor resistor block, of course the resistor block has to be checked for continuity (i.e., specified resistance in ohms) at each position. If equipped with a relay in the circuit, that is easy to test and if the relay works consistently as commanded, you can assume there is no fault there. If you want these diagnostic steps performed by a certified Mechanic, dispatched by YourMechanic right to your location, please request a non functioning blower motor diagnostic/replacement and the responding mechanic will get this resolved for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic.

AC noisy, intermittent blows hot, not cold. If needed, what is parts and labor cost range to replace compressor?
ANSWER : It sounds like you may have a damaged AC compressor clutch. As you may know the AC Clutch is the pulley that spins with the Belt. There are two ports on the rear of the Compressor. One is a Suction Port and the other is the Discharge Port. The Suction port is going to be your larger port and the Discharge port is going to be the smaller port. Refrigerant is sucked into the Suction port, compressed and then it exits out the Discharge Port, then entering the A/C Condenser. Your vehicle’s AC Clutch consists of the Hub, the Pulley, and the coil. The front part of the A/C Clutch is the Hub. Next is the pulley, which is where the belt rides. Finally, under the pulley is the coil, also called a field coil. The Coil is a copper would wire, that functions like a magnetic coil. If the AC Compressor is powered up, electricity engages the coil, and when this happens, it also engages the pulley. The large magnet forces the hub to pull against the pulley. Since the Shaft of the AC Compressor is mated with the A/C Hub, once engaged, it begins to pump refrigerant in the system. Turning whenever the engine is cranked, the A/C Compressor Clutch Pulley will spin even if the AC Compressor is off. If the A/C System is turned on, power is sent to your A/C Compressor Clutch and it will then engage. However, if the pressure in the system (or the refrigerant level) is either too low or high, switches will kill power to the Compressor to keep from damaging it. I would suggest having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to take a look at your vehicle.

Problem with AC/heater – 2005 Ford Explorer
ANSWER : Hello. The problems you describe with the front system may either be a faulty control switch or faulty vacuum motors for the air blend doors. The problem in the rear is likely the rear heater control valve, which regulates the flow of hot coolant to the rear heater core and air duct system. The clicking noise may be a broken vacuum motor for that valve (integrated in the valve).

I would recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to perform an inspection of the heater and suggest the needed repairs.
