Default Defrost and other air not working

Bought my first jeep today. Knew the AC didnt work, but what I didn't know is that the blower did not change where the airflow gets directed, I can move it all the way around like to point it at the feet or upper body and it still blows out of the defrost. is it electrical or mechanical? It also makes a whistle sound sometimes. Any help?

never take your car to a mechanic, always figure it out on your own, you'll save yourself mucho dinero $$ in the long run, and of course you get the experience. check all your vacuum lines for leaks
