Can't change heat/ac temperature

Just did a search and couldn't find anything relating to this problem.

About a year ago I had to replace the switch that controls the speeds for the heat/ac and it fixed my one speed issue. A month or two later I lost the ability to change the temperature of the air flowing out. Is there a replacement part for this and how would I go about fixing it? Is it possible that the hot/cold knob is not engaging properly or is there a thermostat behind it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It is a 2004 TJ Sport 6 cyl. with 40,000 miles.

Thanks

-Chris

Pull the knob off and check it for cracks.Mine did the same thing and the knob itself was broken.

Look under the dash below the glovebox. There should be a cable that runs from behind the a/c control that moves a little lever down there side to side. At least that's how the earlier TJ's are. The cable may have come off or broke. That happened to my old 97...

The blend door might be busted.
Try a search on that.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. So far I know the knobs are in good shape and will try out the other two suggestions tomorrow.

In older TJs like ours the actuator is very much mechanical.
Our temp sliders have a cable that go directly to the blend door.
In newer TJ models it is a knob and an electrical connection that operates a motor on the door.
