Heater Control

We have a 2002 Beaver Patriot and are having problems with our heater/defroster system. We can only get cold air through the system. We pulled the electronic control knob, testing it, and sure enough it is okay. So the problem lies deeper in the system, Beaver rep suggested it could be at the other end and suggested looking at the heater system up on the firewall to move a lever on the heating pot and duct tape it in place so that it stays in the heat mode, especially through the winter. Anyone have such an experience and have recommendations as to how to identify the same?

My dash heat control valve looks something like this:

Coolant hoses are connected to the tubes and the on/off lever is operated by a push/pull cable from the heater/air conditioner control knob on the dash.

The heater control is mounted near the cooling and heater cores and is probably mounted on the passenger side of the firewall in the front. If you have access to this area try and located a larger black plastic shroud that is covering the cooling/heater cores. There should be hoses coming into the this area that carry the coolant. They should attach to a valve that opens and closes to allow for heat.

With the heat all the way over on the red,turn the air to max air -- That will close off outside air, & you will get much more heat -- I know it sounds screwy, but it works -- Bill Willard
