Sounds like you have a bad actuator motor that is what moves the door in heater box to change from hot to cold

Heater wont blow hotair

Hi Dennis, I'm glad to help!

Dennis, there are only 4 possibilities when you have NO Heat. (1) Your are low on coolant. Check your Radiator and see if it is full. (2) The heater core is clogged. First run the engine until it reaches operating temperature with your heater turned on, then grab one heater hose and compare it to the other. If it's clogged one will be extremely hot and the other somewhat warm. If it's not clogged both will be extremely hot. (3) You could have a blend door problem. Which means the door could be stuck in the colder side. It also could be broken or the motor is bad. (4) The control head could be bad and not actuating the door. If you like call me 314-374-5218 I'm in St Peters. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Dennis.

Heater stuck on full heat

Did you ever find a solution to this problem? My 2001 Sierra does the same thing; if I turn on the heat to full hot it remains stuck for a while. Sometimes it sticks for a couple of minutes, other times it sticks for a couple of days. As long as I don't turn it fully to hot though, it doesn't stick. It has gotten worse recently.

2000 gmc sierra 5.3l heater does not get hot

After replacing the thermostat I pulled the heater hoses off and blew air through the heater core at firewall. Can only blow in left side as directional valves will prevent opposite. Chunks of stuff came out with coolant. I then put a piece of hose on the left side and shot water through until it came out clear.
Put it all back together and heat works fine.

Heater in 200 gmc sierra is not workinmg

make sure antifreeze is full. run engine 10 min. verify engine is around 195 degrees. if not, try replacing thermostat. if it is running at 195, then maybe heater core problem or heater control not functioning properly
