My car is not blowing hot air. Car comes to temperature (as per the dash light) normally and appears to have enough coolant. When turning from hot to cold you can feel the AC. Selecting fresh air or interior air works. One time when I tried to switch between hot and cold the switch would only go about 1/2 way into the cold, but after I went fully to the hot it then would go back into fully cold.

I'm thinking stuck blend door - any other suggestions?

Very possible. Depending on your model year, there's a TSB for the climate control cable jamming up. This is for the manually controlled HVAC. If you turn the heat/cool knob, it'll not want to move much and will not feel normal.

The good news is the dealer should fix this for free if it is the case. They fixed mine in an hour.

Turned out to be an easy fix. Removed glovebox and saw that the circled part had popped out of it's housing which disconnected it from the arm (see arrow). Snapped it back in, reattached guide to the arm, blending door works again.
