When temp control fan is off, or on, there is hot air blowing through the floor vents, can I fix it cheaply?

Asked by Sep 06, 2016 at 11:01 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4-Door 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On my 04 Blazer, whether the fan is off or on, and no matter what setting, floor, floor and panel, or dash....there is hot air blowing through the floor vent.  Even if the A/C is on, it's a mix of cold and warm blowing through the floor vents.  All the settings work and change as I turn the switch, but even in the off position, still hot air on the floor.  Why? and is there an easy fix?

There is a valve used to be on the firewall but could be in the interior, I had a gm car that run warm and I wanted to relieve the extra heat from the system at all times. I took this valve off and it would let heat in the floor vent but the a/c still came threw the vents and I could direct the air to the dash or defrost as you stated too but had no control over this heat in the floor. It routes this back to the engine and I do not remember its name I saw in a Haynes book and decided to remove it to see if it would help and when I did I found out that I could not stop the air in floor deal and placed it back and it went away but as mentioned before I needed to cool my motor down so I took it back off and it did work I just had a warm interior instead.
