It would have to do with the HVAC Blend Door Actuator is either bad or something wrong with the door itself. Just a matter of getting under the dash to check it out.

What does blend door actuator look like is it hard to replace


There looks like there may be 3 different ones in that vehicle. This one is for the defrost. Look on this sight, just copy and past to your browser to see what I am talking about...

Yep, they will do that when the plastic piece that turns the door breaks.

Look for damaged doors, stripped mechanism that go into the actuator.
