Question 2007 Ford Taurus- Can't turn heat off

2007 Ford Taurus- Can't turn heat off. The heat or cold dial only gives me heat nothing happens when I turn it to the blue cold side. If I turn the air button on I can hear the compressor come on but that makes no difference. Is it the switch or is it something under the hood that the switch controls? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Wayne

odds are it's the blend door actuator under the dash that moves the door to blend hot and cold air together...

Knowing Ford, you likely to run same dial I had back in my 87 Taurus. Same problem. What happened, there was a delryn connector behind the dial, if you take entire assy out. That connector had a long wire connected to it, to operate blender door. Well, that connector ear broke off.

Thank you, Liroku, very useful.
I glanced at that NEW Taurus dash, and like I suspected, knobs are exactly same they were back in late 80s.
In my case, knob shaft had a plastic "ear" that broke off. All I had to do was to pull climate control unit out and don't remember, I think I mended it with some wires.
