07 heater only blows threw the defrost vents.

hello

I own a 07 f350 6.0L. Last summer the EGR cooler and EGR went and I had the mecanic weld up the new EGR cooler and not replace the EGR. i live in northern canada and my heater will not blow to the floor or out the dash vents no matter what setting the control is on it will only come out the defrost vents. Im not to sure if the EGR mod is the problem just thought I would throw the info in there. My feet are freezing please help and thanks in advance.

A Vacuum line maybe? I'm pretty sure the flaps are moved by vacuum redirected by how the switch is set.

Any of that messed with during the EGR work?

Just a thought.

I know that most cars air controls default to the defrost if there is a vacuum problem, not sure on the Ford trucks tho....I would be looking for a vacuum leak as the others stated

All though I don't know which one it is, it's a fuse. Had it happen on a 2000 f-350 PSD.
