It sounds like you've got more than one problem.

Those cables are what change the mode door and blend door. They commonly bind up at the door and when you try to change a setting, it's hard, the cable bends and usually pops off right there behind the knob. Once it bends, it's toast, and likely that whatever it's controlling is binding up, which is also not good, since that's the HVAC unit. That face plate might be super easy to take off. Just a trim piece and four screws maybe? If it comes right off, I'd inspect behind there first. If it's a pain, go down to the floor, remove any low trim pieces that might be there, and turn the knobs, looking for which knob controls what. You should see and hear the cable to find it's end. Pop the cable off there and see if you can manually move the doors. If not, new cables and controls won't fix it.

I think you were talking a out the fan knob being hard to turn? That's a different issue and should be hard at all, since it doesn't use the cables That could require replacement of that assembly, which usually comes with the cables.


You mainly want to make sure that what the cables are controlling isn't stuck and see what's up behind that fan speed knob.

Ok, so the fan speed know is the problem. Right, if doesn't feel right, you have to replace that whole face plate.

Fan speed switch - controls blower fan speed
Mode switch - changes which vents air comes out of
Recirculation/fresh air switch - controls air source from outdoor air to in cabin air
A/C button - turns a/c on and off
