1973 450SL (RED)

Bought a 73 450SL last spring that was in great condition with only 59,000 miles on the car. So much fun to drive....never knew how much fun a convertible car would be. Just replaced the fuel relay and some new hoses but that has been the only concern for my car so far. But since I had the hoses replaced I noticed my control panel for the heat does not want to stop. I was wondering if I have a vacuum problem since the hoses for the fuel line to the injectors were replaced and somehow the hoses lost the vacuum. OR is the levers for the heat stuck?
