Hello Fozzie Masters!

May I just seek your valuable assistance please? 😊

I wanted to ask about the malfunction of the A/C Temperature Control Knob like the one below:
Steering part Motor vehicle Automotive design Car Automotive wheel system

It seems that only the first notch (when its on 17) works on blowing the cold air. Meaningthat as soon as I turn the knob up a notch, hot air kicks in immediately. There are also no middle settings like gradual heat.

I just got the car so unfortunately have no history whatsoever of what took place before this happened.

So I was wondering, would the knob operate a motorized flap? Or sort of a heater actuator mixture from inside?

Or, would the knob itself fail as the contacts may be corroded?

Any help would truly be appreciated!
