2012 Explorer HVAC passenger side

Does anyone know of an easy fix for the dual side (passenger side) air vents only blowing hot air. Even when the AC is on. I have tried to change the settings both temperature and from floor to defrost to the other settings and nothing but hot air comes out.
My guess is that the vent doors or stuck but not for sure, the driver side changes air temp with the temperature adjustments as it should.

Any and all Ideas are welcomed.

Thank you so much.

Yes you seem to have a stuck blend door, probably accessed by taking the glovebox out.

Could be the door itself like a broken hinge or the actuator which is typically a servo motor. You'd gain access and see if that motor is moving when the temperature is changed. If not then you'd use a multimeter to see if power is getting to it on the mating connector and if not (or maybe first thing to check instead) if there's a blown fuse.

If there is no power to it and the fuse is good then you'd note wire colors and trace it back to the console head unit to see if the power is output there when it should. Head unit failure is far less likely but not impossible.
