I believe your model has three ac/heater door actuators . 1) is for mode door 2) is for blend door 3) is for recirculate door

Check for a broken or disconnected vacuum hose coming from the intake manifold. If the system loses vacuum for some reason it defaults to defrost for safety reasons. HTH. -Jim
