I have seen people call this a blend door actuator but is seems like it should be called an air diverter door. It may be that the controller does not know where the position of the actuator is and needs to be reset?
The right name is a Mode Door, it controls where the air goes. The Blend/Mix door is a whole different animal, it controls the outlet temperature. You're scrambling your terminology.
You are absolutely correct, I stand corrected...But you got me thinking,,,
It is now working. My misunderstanding of how this worked led me into the woods. Thank you VStar, I am much smarter now. The Blend Door Actuator controls the blend of hot and cold( go figure) not what outlets the air is coming from. That is done by another actuator. Seems like the Blend Door Actuator needs to run the motor till the door hits the end of travel to have it figure out where it is at. No wonder there are so many broken gears. Now I may soon need to find the air flow diverter actuator as I hear an occasional tic when I change the air outlets. Thank you for all your help.
