There could be a vacuum leak in the source line, control head, 1or more of the vacuum motors that control the doors, you may have to remove the dash to gain access to the heater box. You might be able it over come the leak by adding some auxiliary vacuum canisters in the vacuum supply line with check valves but it would be temporary as the leak most likely get worse as time goes on.
