Spartan Chassis dash heater help

Can anyone give me some ideas...my dash heat ti not working. When I turn it on with the dash control, I know the valves are open because the pipes are warm in the on position, and the fans work, but no hot air is coming out of the dash. I can see what I think is the AC evaporator under the passenger footwell, but I can't see the heater core.
Thanks for ideas.

The control cable has a tendency to jump off the lever in the control head. You can manually move it from the heater box.

Heater core location

The heater core is located on the upper left (passengers) side inside the hood It was manufactured by Acme. The plastic shroud has to come off to expose it. Takes a good hour to remove the core. The trickiest part of removal were the bottom shroud screws. On my 95 it had a removable access panel to get at them . Not sure if my 94 has the same access panel.
Good luck

SebasSF Did you ever figure this out? I found my heater control valve needed to be replaced. It's the same one on our rig as it is on my excursion. You can get it from autozone or any other car parts place. Just ensure you get the $13.99 one and tell them the excursion does not have an auxilliary system (single pass through with no branching)

Hey Vycan, I have not got this figured out yet, so thanks for the thoughts. Are you referring to the one in line in the water hose?

One thing I did check was if the hose was hot on both sides of the valve then it was open, and it was so I figured the valve was working. I did find some troubleshooting advice in the manual that I will follow before it gets cold out here again.

That just leaves your heater door control. It should also be vacuum operated.

Spartan Chassis dash heater help

The control head has a POS connection block for the vacuum lines. Good place to check for leaks. The vent right above it pops out and gives access with small fingers. The control cable often pops off the control leaver due to poor routing of the cable. Is the vacuum pump working?
