Because of a vaccume leak or a bad accuator for the blender door. but usally it is a cracked or disconnected vaccume hose - mostly the vac hose from the intake manifold 2 the vac T that goes inside the car.

Because it's not a defroster button! It's just the symbol for ventilating the air into the car. It shoudln't be called a defroster since defrosting is meant by heating up the coils that you see at the back of the car. I'm pretty no car has wires in the front!

Why is the AC air cold and the blower is working but no air is coming out of the vents on a Chevy Astro van 6 Cy when ac is on and charged It blows hot air?

The air should be comming out of the defroster vents. If so, most likely, it is the vacuum line that controls the vents. It is on top of the engine below the air cleaner, and runs to the front right of the engine. Buy the replacment so you know what your are looking for.

Why won't cars let you select the Face vents and defrost vents at the same time?

The Heating/ ventilation systems in cars are large structures throughout the dash board, that have many channels of which air can flow through. When you use your face vents, the air is blowing from the upper vent channels. If you use the windshield defroster, the air comes from the very same upper channels, the channels just switch. They have a divider that blocks airflow one way or another. Very much like train tracks, when you change the settings with the switches, the airflow changes because the divider has moved. Therefore you cannot use both at once. The only reason why you can use the foot vents, and face vents at the same time, is because they have a divider that splits the channel that they share, you can use face vents (full force), foot vents (full force) or both split (half force). The Defroster is made to work fast, so if you use the face, and defroster vents at the same time, the defroster would be half as effective. This is why you cant use them both at the same time.

That is actually how the vehicle was designed. If you look at the selector knob for the vents you'll notice that the arrows pointing down and for the windshield are white and the vents for the dash are blue. Basically, you can defrost and warm your feet and that's it
