All 6 vacuum lines are plugged into the rubber boot behind the switch...5 of them go to the various positioning diaphragms and the 6th is the one that supplies the vacuum, which is the one you need to trace.

It is not unusual for those hard vacuum lines to break inside one of thos harnesses.
You need to get back to basics, determine if there is vacuum in the car, if not trace the line back and find where it is broken.

You are making this into something bigger than it is.
I am betting you have one of those hard plastic vacuum lines broken under the hood. They get very brittle from the engine bay heat after a few years

I went thru a similar problem with my 97 except it was the defroster that acted up.Here is a picture of the 3 vacuum actuators (for a 97) under the dash above the gas pedal.Check to be sure they are all connected properly and push/pull the respective arms that control the dampers in your heater box. You'll probably find one that's dangling down when it broke off. The plastics arms get old and fracture easily.
