This is a very common problem on this and several other GM vans, unfortunately (for the owners). Open the hood and look just to the right (passenger side) of the center of the van near the evaporator housing (a large, black, plastic case). You will, no doubt, after a short search, find a broken/burned, small, black vacuum line. This line originally connected to the intake manifold just to the left of the top of the engine (driver's side). On top of the intake (after removing all of the air cleaner nonsense that GM thinks looks so good cosmetically (big deal-- But, does it run?!) you will see a black, palstic round device (vacuum check valve) and the other half of the broken hose. Go to your local auto parts store and purchase a length of 1/8" or 7/32" vacuum hose approximately 3' in length. Replace the broken hose with the new hose and Voila! You have airflow once again! Now... if your A/C was not cooling BEFORE this occurred, it won't be cooling now. This procedure only affect WHERE the air comes out. If you have no COOL air, you should have your system checked out by a professional. Good luck SDIgroup ---- Kudos to the SDI Group, you saved me some money. It was exactly what you said it would be. To make things easier for me I removed the engine cowling aka doghouse. To remove cowling on 2000 year model see below, but not to change plugs. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/On_a_Chevy_Astro_Van_how_do_you_remove_the_engine_cover_to_change_plugs
defrost is the default mode. in most cases a vacuun leak is the culprit.

If it's stuck in defrost your battery died and messed up the computer. Disconnect battery for 5 or more min. Reconnect and it should ok then.
My 89Chevrolet astro van digital speedometer stop working. How do I fix it
I have a 1996 Astro van and I'm having trouble too. My fan motor sticks. It has for a while. Its not the heater but the fan that has draged. I can get out and pound on the casing, and sometimes it starts up.
that usually indicates a vacuum leak which causes the system to go into default mode, which is defrost.
$150-200. Sometimes its better to buy a new one.
Unless you supply more information with your problem, the best fix I can offer is to buy a new one from Auto Zone, or Advance Auto.

To fix an oil leak in a 96 astro, first you need to find the leak. Clean the engine thoroughly at a car wash. Watch the engine daily for signs of the oil leak. Once the basic area is found then the process of fixing the leak can begin.
first check to see if the fuse to the lighter is blown, if not just replace the removable part of the lighter. ( Heating element )
