2006 jeep rubicon a/c problem

I have a 2006 jeep wrangler rubicon 4x4. My air has been acting up since I bought it over a year ago. It used to blow just through defrost until something caught I guess. Then It would blow like normal through the regular vents. Well here recently my air only blows on defrost, no matter what you put it on. You can turn my air off, and it still blows through defrost. I just need to find out what is causing this and how I can fix it. No setting works, just defrost. It blows on your feet as well. But not through the actual vents on the dash

It's probably a lose hose in your vacuum system. There are tons of threads on how to fix this if you need more help, but if you use this diagram of vacuum hose, you'll most likely find it disconnected or broken somewhere.

I have a 2004 and I just fixed the same problem a couple of days ago. I spent an hour checking all the vacuum hoses and switch. People say 90% of the time that is the problem. But, all my vacuum was good.

I looked at the actuator levers behind the panel under the steering wheel. It turns out that one of the flat silver actuator arms had popped off the plastic arm that moves the door.

A lot of pictures floating around showing actuators but the 2004 had a different layout than the diagrams floating around on the forums.

The actuator arm to look for is just above the coin tray. You may have to activate the dash vent to pop it back on. Mine wasn't broken at the plastic arm it just popped off.

I wish I would have took a picture.
