This is a great answer but I would like to add to it. the part that goes bad on several Lincoln conti's that cause this problem is called a "blend door actuator" I'm not sure if I spelled it correctly but the purpose of this unit is to control switching from defrost to vent and so on. the part is about 25-35 at every junk yard and a bad idea to buy without some sort of warranty, they almost all go bad eventually. A new one from the Lincoln dealership is 89.75 from all three of the Lincoln parts places in my area. My guess would be its the same price nation wide. the service book calls for 1.2 hours of labor time to replace it. a good shop could install it and only charge you about 200.00 after tax. I .

Answereven though the system is electronic, the air directional controls are still vacuum operated. Defrost is the systems default position, in the event of a loss of vacuum. Most likely, there is a loss of vacuum supply to the heater control system.

Also, the doors that open and close to direct the air flow are controlled by metal vacuum solenoids where the vacuum tubes plug into. Possibly, one of these soleniods has lost its vacuum seal and is not functioning. To visualize them, you open the glove box door and drop the g-box door all the way down by pushing in on the stop-tabs on either side of the glove box itself. then you can see the air flow phlenum (box) and the three solenoids. Also, check to see if one of the vacuum hoses has just come loose.

You have a bad vacuum reservoir or leaking vacuum line. Vacuum is usedd to control the air duct doors in your system and when you accelerate, the vacuum supply is greatly reduced...causing the duct doors to "default" to the defrost position.

On my 1995 Ford Explorer when the defrost position is selected , and the temperature knob is set in the red area to get heated air to defrost the windshield , the A/C compressor will cycle on and off to help dehumidify the air, but the compressor ONLY cycles on and off in the DEFROST POSITION ( sorry if I'm misinterpretting your question )

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

Manual defrost is the instructions for you to manually defrost your freezer and automatic defrost is saying the freezer defrost on it's own.

You have a vacuum line disconnected probably under the hood. The HVAC controls are operated by vacuum and when there is no vacuum it system goes into defrost mode.

When there is a problem in the vent system it defaults to defrost setting. Check the doors & vac supply

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.

it should if you have the heater control in the defrost position this is to remove the moisture from the air

User Avatar

Cold air from the defrost indicates that the air doors are in the wrong position. The doors are vacuum controlled in most vehicles. check the vacuum system for a leak.

More than likely the vacuum feed line from the engine has been disconnected or cracked. When there is no vacuum supplied to the HVAC it reverts back to the defualt position, the defroster.

A microprocessor in a fridge controls the temperatures, defrost cycle, and other electronic processes. This makes them highly efficient and keeps running costs lower.

To defrost the Frigidaire FFC0522, simply aim the defrost drain into a storage bucket or into a drain, and switch the freezer until defrost mode until it is complete.

Yes you can, but it will take several hours to do so. and my advice to you is not to defrost it all at once. DO NOT DEFROST IT IN AN OVEN!
