Where is the blend door actuator 94 suburban?
Directly on the Back left side of your blower motor, two Gold screws hold it in place. One easily visible, the other is hard to reach.

It's not hard to get to the Blend Door Actuator. It going to be hard to find a new replacement assembley in the after market world. The cost should be between $35 to $95. The …actuator is nothing more than a hobby sized motor geared down to open and close a small plastic door that directs hot or cold air into the cabin. When you set the temperature to the warmest setting the motor opens the blend door to the heater core allowing warm air to pass. This actuator is underneath your dash about center. You will have to remove several black dress panels that cover the works. Then you will need a nut driver to remove the screws that hold the ducting that will be in the way in this area. Once you have those few things removed, look near the Fire Wall area. You will see a small black box held o with two screws and one electrical connector. Remove the screws and connector and wiggle the assembly off the end of the door shaft sticking down. Thats it!

The actuator is located on top of the heater box and can be accessed by fully opening the glove box and looking in the upper left hand corner. Generally, the actuator …motor is not the problem, but a broken blend door. For information on how to diagnose and fix the problem, you can check at www.heatertreater.net. This is a very common problem and the fix is very expensive at the dealer. HeaterTreater is a cheap, easy alternative. cgallen
The blend door actuator on the late model Chevy Tahoe is located behind the dash in the glove box area. Broken blend doors and broken blend door actuators are a very common pr…oblem among Chevy Tahoe, Suburban, and Silverado models. Typically, to repair a broken blend door, a mechanic will disassemble the dash and replace the plenum box. It is an expensive and labor intensive repair. There are also some DIY solutions such as the heatertreater that provide hardware and instructions for performing the repair by removing the glove box rather than the entire dash. It is worth looking into if you think you have a broken blend door.
its a huge job. Sorry to say but the whole dash has to come out. if you are planing on doing at home, you can do it if you do not mind cutting your truck a l…ittle. i will post a video on youtube in a little while to show you how to replace a heater door in a navigator.... you can do it at home for about 100 bucks :D instead of taking it to the dealership which they will charge around 1200-1400 for a 20-30 dollar door and a 35-40 dollar motor.

There is no significant power at the three wire plug at the control knob, the three wires are directly wired to a potentiometer. In the five wire plug on the actuator there is… a ground and twelve volts. To test knob, use a multimeter to check for changes in resistance from the middle to the outsides, and for a constant resistance on the outsides. Use a voltmeter to check for 12 volts at the actuator plug, hooking to the two wires that are diff colors than the three that go to the control knob. If you have 0 volts with key in run position, you prolly have blown fuse. The knob resistance can be checked regardless of key position. If turning the knob varies the resistance, and you have twelve volts in run, then your actuator is probably bad. iF turning the knob yields no change in resistance, than the knob is slipping and not turning the shaft it sits on.
The actuators are under the dash. three of the four are on the drivers side just above the accelorator and are attached to your blower motor. the fourth is located under… the passenger dash to the right and is attached to the recirc blower.
I have a 98 Jimmy slt and mine was located behind the glove box and to the upper left. It was really not that hard to remove. The glove box folds down easily. I had to… remove this round looking component and swing it toward the drivers side and then use a 7/32 socket to remove the two screws. Remove the power plug ,Wiggle the actuator upwards until free.There are a couple of small vacuum lines that have to be removed in the process also. I am a mother and grandmother .If I can do it so can you!

the blend door actuator is located under the sound insulator panel. Remove the sound insulator panel by removing for 7mm screws. Move the sound insulator panel out of the way.… Now look at the bottom of the heating/air conditioning unit at the bottom near the carpet where the transmission hump is in the floor board. You will see a little 3 inch by 3 inch black box with a 6 wire plug going to front of the box. Unplug the actuator and remove the 3 (7/32) screws. When putting in a new actuator DO NOT PLUG IT UP TO TEST IT. IT WILL THROW IT OF TIME. The only thing you need to test is the blend door. Turn the bottom of the door where the actuator connects to door and check for movement. put on new actuator and start fixing your next problem
Under the dash and in order to fix the darn thing the dash has to be removed unless there is a new technique. At the dealer the price used to be $2,200. Ouch!!
