2013 Lincoln MKX uneven defroster temperature

When I turn the defrost on the passenger side gets hot but the drivers side stays cold. How do I fix this or what needs to be replaced?

Likely a motor actuator that directs the air is stuck or broken. Replacing these on some cars can be quite simple, others not so much depending on which actuator it is.

Thank you.
