I need to replace the air filter on this unit and I can't find the right size filter. What size do I need? I ave an Armstrong model # 64HWC303a-2B Serial # 8401H12194


If it's a plastic mesh filter, you can buy an uncut kit at most home centers and hardware stores. That you can cut to fit your unit.You'll probably have enough left over to make 2 filters.

I need a new fliter. What dimensions9size) should I buy? Thank you, Kim


Go to where your unit is and look for a filter rack take the cover off might be sheet metal that slides up and can be very tough to lift sometimes. You might have to get a tape measure and measure the height and length then go to hardware store or Wally world and it will be 1 inch by ----- by ------. Sometimes you have to get two of them in case the filters are so long that they don't come that long. But for the most part they could be 14 inches by 26 inches. 20 x 20 if you need help get back with me and can help a little more. ken

Fan switch


I would go to an ACE hardware or any other hardware store, bring in the old knob if you had it to find another that would match the shaft which it connects to, another place might be Radio Shack.

lost remote to ceiling fan


Go to any hardware store and buy a replacement kit. You'll have to take down the fan (turn off the power first) and remove the black remote box from inside the cup covering all the wiring. Replace that with the new black box that came with the new remote. Make sure that the remote control and black box pins are set the same and reinstall your fan. Total time, probably 30-45 minutes plus a trip to the hardware store. Level of difficulty, moderately easy. Cost, probably $15 min to $40 max. Anything above $40 and you may as well replace the fan altogether. Note: Before you remove the original black box, check the pin settings and set the new hand remote to those settings. Turn on the power and try to turn on the light with the remote control (don't turn the fan on unless you totally reinstalled it) - if it works, you may not need to replace the black box.
