Sounds like a blend door motor/actuator problem.

Sounds like a vacuum hose issue. If there is a crack/leak in the system, all air is diverted to the defrost vent. Get under the hood along the firewall and check your vacuum hoses.

Look for the small vacuum line routed near the battery that goes from the intake through the firewall.
