There is a caseunder the dash that holds the heater core and ac evaporator core. In that case there are what are called blend doors. They are controlled by vacuum from the engine that runs to the doors through a diaphragm. The defrost/floor position is the default position that the blend doors automatically go to if there is a malfunction. Usually when that happens it is caused loss of vacuum. Another sign of a vacuum problem is when there is an apparent loss of air from the dash/side vent position upon acceleration which returns to normal when not accelerating. Annoying but harmless.

If defrost is on it could be your compressor going bad. See what happens when you leave off defrost or disconnect your compressor. It only controls defrost and air conditioning. I had the same problem

What can be done if pipes in the refrigerator freeze?

More than likely its the defrost timer or the defrost heater. You can try and advance the timer which is usually located at the top of the refrigerator compartment. Its usually a small round circle with a slot in the middle. Take a slotted screwdriver and advance it till you hear it click then stop advancing it. This more than likely is defrost mode. It should kick on the defrost heater. Listen closely if you can hear the heater kicking on and sizzling the ice. If you do advance the timer to run after about 1/2 an hour and repeat the process until the ice is gone. If this works then the timer is defective and needs replaced. If this process doesn't work then the defrost heater is probably defective.

Why do you keep blowing fuses when you turn on the heater fan but when you take out the compressor fuse it doesnt blow the fuses?

The compressor is coming on because you have the heater set to defrost. Take it off defrost and the compressor will not come on. I would suspect the compressor is locked up.

Why does heater defrost vent not open on a 1989 Sunbird and cold air blow from dash vents but no air blows from heater defrost vents and where are the enter and exit hoses for the heater coil?

I don't know why the vent would not open for the defrost, but it may be related to the fact that your heater core is blown. If your getting nothing but cold air out of the vents when the heat is on, your core is finished and if the core is finished then it is likely related to your vent not opening/switching. Something''s wrong with your heating either way.
