2003 Toyota Corolla

I just bought a used certified 2003 Toyota corolla 3 days ago. Everything worked when I got it. Today when I went to adjust the temperature control down it would not adjust. It acts like a spring return - can't move the dial to blue or red areas it only moves in the middle white area. The fan also seems to not blow as I turn it up. Crazy

Okay an update - I got in the car in the afternoon and everything was back to normal - like maybe the compressor had frooze up causing the problem and once it thawed out it went back to working? It quit working halfway through a long drive (5 hrs). Anyone seen anything like this? I'm expecting it to happen again. The air blows cold so it doesn't appear to be low on refridgerent.

greg; I'd be surprised if the control uses a cable, but that's what it sounds like....a binding cable. If this was 'Certified', you should be able to take it back and have them repair it for you. JMO.

To add: Control head/dials/knobs not turning and any icing issue (unknown) are unrelated IMO,
