Likely you are having a problem with the blend door mechanism.

Here is some sample info on some Ford products; not sure if your E250 would be similar:

Free Ford Blend Door Fix
The Last Resort Ford Blend Door Fix

Some of them are vacuum operated and it's a simple matter of finding the vacuum leak; others are more involved.

Ford has been plagued with this problem since the mid nineties, so youre not alone......

The blend door is "Motor-controlled" and the door itself fractures where the motor shaft engages it. Your ford dealer will have a "Repair-kit" available , which replaces the door, motor and the related housing. Same labor as changing a heater core.
