the haynes fiero repair manual # 79008 electrical diagram on page 296 shows two small motors that control the flaps which direct air flow to the floor or defrost to the windshield or to the face vents for aircon. my problem is the air only blows to the windshield defrost. All the push buttons work properly and switch voltage to the different wires on the connector, So I suspect the one of the diversion flaps is stuck, or the small flap motor is bad. however the tear down page 126 does not show the 2 flap motors on the ac/heater/blower housing or any detail were they connect to the flap control levers. I think this looks like a major problem to get to these flaps and I just may cut a hole in the bottom of the blower housing to manualy move the flaps by hand to free them up rather than removing the center console and having to remove this large blower housing from under the dash board which connects to hot water heater hoses through the firewall and also the refrigerant R12 hoses through the firewall. Then I will make a plastic cover plate to cover the hole after I free up or move the flaps. I wish I had a professional mechanics drawing for this blower housing unit that would properly show all the parts, which I could print out on my 11x17 printer. wish me luck and I hope this info helps you. From: I hope this helps you

Either in the refrigerator overnight or in the microwave on the defrost cycle, according to weight. Do not leave it out on the countertop to defrost at room temperature!

If this is the condenser that is frozen, you have a problem with the defrost cycle. There are 2 things that need to be checked, the defrost sensor and the defrost control board. More than likely it is the defrost control board that is the problem and of course that is the more costly of the 2.

The temperature control module for a 1997 Ford explorer is the unit that controls all of the heat and ac functions. If it is not operating properly, then the heat ac and defrost will work improperly or not at all.

Take them out of the fridge and let them sit until they defrost...keep @ room temperature

About 10% during the outdoor temperature from about 40 degrees to 20 degrees. Not a lot beyond those temperatures that make frost on the outdoor coil...assuming you have a unit with a good electronic defrost control.

during the defrost cycle of a forced draft low temperature evaporator, the evaporator fan would?

You can, but it's better to defrost in the refrigerator for the same reason you keep the rest of the food in there: to keep it from spoiling.

It depends on the weather temperature and humidity as well as the meat surface area exposed for defrost.

room temperature in warm water

When you set the control, if you chose defrost, it usually does it at the temperature you specify. So if you want heat only blowing through the windshield vents, which I believe may be the question you are asking, it varies between makes of cars. This is what to look for : defrost, fan speed, temperature. If you mean "Can a car that only has a heater ( no air conditioning ) be used to defrost?" The answer is still yes. I believe the question is missing words. It is comparable to asking "Hand, just finger work?" You might try asking again, being more specific, explaining why it is a problem.

Because pathogenic bacteria love to grow at room temperature.

Yes, the ac will run in the defrost position to dry the windshield.

To GE model GSSxxxx models, there is no defrost timer. It uses the main control board to time it.

Because the internal temperature of the juice counteracts the room temperature

It sounds like your air flow diverter is stuck on defrost. Basically it is a little door that diverts the air fom vent to defrost to feet. It could be either the heater control valve, or te temperature selecter cable is broke.

put it in room temperature water for a few hours and it will defrost

The A/C reset button is located in the climate control system. It includes the Fan, Temperature and Mode knob. You can set the A/C to vent, defrost, defog, and floor.

sounds like a vacum leak in the temperature control panel or from the engine to the control panel, the line from the engine to the control panel is black, and gets split at the panel, has the engine been running a little rough or a lack of power, this might explain it
