Smile Blend Door Actuator

HI guys anyone ever have to fix this on a ford engine? It it the door that opens and closes when you adjust the dial on the dash from hot to cold, Fords are known for going out and having to be replaced. At a auto repair shop they told me I have to go to a RV dealer the auto shop would charge for a car around 600 dollars so you can imagine an RV dealers price??

I have a 2004 National Sea Breeze 3118 with a triton V10 they say the heater is done by Evans Tempcon, Inc

here is a video of what it is on a Ford Explorer

Hi Ramster,

I know what you mean about the blend door. The one on my wife's Windstar van failed but it was the blend door itself that broke, not the actuator. Ford trucks and vans are imfamous over this one.

HOWEVER - as you pointed out yourself, the heating and dash AC on your Class A Sea Breeze is made by Evans, not Ford, so it is a different system. Not sure that there are any Ford parts involved. If not, then it is a good thing!

A Ford powered Class C would be fully Ford and subject to the blend door troubles.

No problem with the door but I got a new heater core from Evans. They should have the part.
