Woke up this gloriously frigid Montreal morning (about -21C) and set off to 
work in my slightly bewildered but amicable 4KCSQ.

Within a few moments, I came to the startling realization that while the 
outer vents(nearest to the windows) were expelling soft, warm, sweet 
smelling breeze, the inner vents were jetting the blast of a frozen tundra. 
 I was aghast!

Alternating the manual ventilation system's hot/cold lever, adjsuting the 
output destintation, etc..  did nothing to cease the influx of bitter wind. 
 My only hope was to firm close the central vents, thereby reducing the 
overall effectiveness of my heating system.

I seems the central vents are simply reproducing the external ambient air 

I quick external examination of the heating system show everything to be in 
order, so I am deducing that it must be an internal [flappage] problem.

My question to the collective cyber knowledge base is such:  has anyone 
suffered such a malfunction, and is it easily correctable?

Any assistance would be much appreciated.
