Freezing my back side off

Hey eveybody. Hope ya'll can help me out. Here's the scoop...I have a 2002 F-350 turbo diesel. The heater is not working...blows cold air. Both heater hoses are hot..the heater core is hot.. there is no diverter valve on any of the hoses..the blend door is functioning and I've looked everywhere for the ball point pen stuck in he vent that everybody seems to think is the cause of the problem. I back flushed the heater core today just because I couldn't think of anything else to do. Anybody got any ideas before I turn into a popcicle?

How did you verify the blend door is working? There are four total doors in the system.

2003 F-250 XLT Crew Cab 7.3L, Chrome BigTex Grille Guard, Quad pillar - 3 ISSPRO gauges (trans, pyro, boost) and DP-Tuner F6; Roush fuel pressure / temperature / oil pressure gauges, Ford Severe Duty AIS, 31 row 6.0 transmission cooler, ScanGauge II, Marinco mod, Walker BTM

I wonder if clouds ever look down on us and say, "Hey, look - that one is shaped like an idiot!"

Ahhhh... There is a door to the left of the heater core. It has an arm that opens and closes the door wher you turn the selection knob. Where are the other 3?

There is one that deflects main air flow to the defrosters, one that deflects main air to the heater vent, one that controls intake air (recirculation versus outside air) and the blend door. The first three are vacuum controlled. The blend door uses a electronic actuator. Its on top of the air box behind the glove compartment. You would have to pull the actuator off and then move the temperature control to see if it moves.
