Jeep Grand Cherokee Temperature Blend/Recirculation Doors May Fail and Cause AC Problems

(136 reports)

Temperature blend and recirculation doors commonly fail, which can cause the AC modes not to change or the temperature to be different on the left and right sides. If replacing blend air doors, a recirculation door, a door link, or a sub-assembly housing, new heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) sub-assemblies are available that improve reliability.

Hey Guys... If you are getting NO air through the ducts and the fan is on, it is probably the recirculation door behind the glove box. Mine broke and fell to block any air coming from the fan. Easy, cheap fix - I removed the glove box, used a wood shish kabob stick to lift the door back into the open position then used wire to secure the stick to the plastic grate covering the cabin air intake. I now get great air circulation. If there is a problem with temperature control and/or differences between the passenger and driver sides, then it is probably the blend doors. Mine broke too... -
I had the blend doors and recirculating fan replaced 3 years ago. I have experienced a heater /ac problem again. i installed new blend doors and that did not correct the problem, the old plastic blend doors were still good. I have noticed the blower sound like it is on but no major air flow comes out of the vents, not to mention no heat. what may be the cause, im lost . -
My air flow through air registers would not change. It was always on the defrost mode. Found the VACUUM hose not attached on the intake manifold side. Connected the hose all systems back to normal. (vacuum hose located on the driver side under the hood) Check the intake manifold there should vacuum hoses connected to the intake manifold. There is also a diagram and a notation under the hood. When you open the hood this information is on the underside of the hood (front end) -

2011 Jeep GC lost heat on passenger side after loud calibrating noise coming from mid lower dash. 2 weeks later same with drivers side. No heat at all now. Diagnosed as need of Blend/Mode Door Housing. The whole front dash needs to be removed at a cost of $1082.00 + tax. Cant believe they are still using this design being it affects a multitude of year models. -
We get AC out of driver side and warm air out of passenger in the summer. In winter the driver is freezing and the passenger is comfortable. Is there a recall if it happens so much? -

Passenger side air is nonresponisve to thermostat adjustment with and without AC one. Stagnant air coming out at 65 degrees. Any ideas? -
For a 2010 Jeep Liberty Sport, there is no refrigerated air or heat coming from the dash vents over the central tower. The air is instead channeled to the windshield vents, and a little air from the two side dash vents. The dealer said the problem was a failed air distribution box, plus an actuator. Also, it seems to have killed reception to the AM radio. Evidently, the fan blades often warp over time, or will also break. The central tower above the radio must be removed to replace the failed box. My dealer quote was $1,300. -
