Question about Intertherm P3RA-036K Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Where is the Air Filter located on P3RA-036K?

This is an iutside unit. I have looked inside the Mobile Home and can not even locate anything but the Floor Vents and the Air Return Vent. I have a Filter in there but there shoiuld be one on the Unit, right? I bought this place used and there are no Owners Manuals. The Lady I bought it from was the 2nd owner and she bought it in 2005 and said she never changed anything except the Floor Air Return Filter. My Electric Bill is way high so I think there may be a problem. Anyone out there have any idea where this Filter may be locaterd? I looked all around the unit and all Panels seem to be permanent.
Thank you

NO FILTER IN A PACKAGE UNIT EVER AT ALL AT ANY TIME. YOUR FLOOR GRILL FOR RETURN AIRT IS ALWAYS YOUR ONE AND ONLY FILTER LOCATION. YOU MAY HAVE A VERY DIRTY EVAPORATOR COIL ON THE INTAKE SIDE WHICH WOULD CAUSE POOR PERFORMANCE AND POOR AIRFLOW. HAVE AN AC CO COME OUT AND REMOVE THE LID AND INSPECT OR WASH THE COIL. YOU MAY ALSO BE LOW ON R22 . HAVE IT CHECKED WITH A GAGE. AS A GENERAL RULE PRESS LESS THAN 40 POUNDS EQUAL LOW CHARGE OR DIRTY COIL. 65 TO 70 POUNDS FAIRLY NORMAL. IT NEEDS TO BE 70 TO 80 DERGEES OUTSIDE AND INSIDE TO REFLECT THESE GENERAL PRESSURES. IF LOW ON R22 THEN A LEAK HAS DEVELOPED, USUALLY IN THE EVAP COIL.. BE AWARE R22 IS OUT OF PRODUCTION NEXT YEAR. STRONGLY CONSIDER NEW 410 REF UNIT BEFOR ESINKING A BIG CHUNK OF MONEY IN R22 EQUIP

I was changing the filter and unit came on and sucked the plastic bag down the hole.This is on a Mobile Home


The unit is more than Likely a package unit meaning everything is outside. So you can go to the unit, switch it off, and remove the top or a panel to get to the evaporator coil which is where it is probably sucked into now.

I have a Intertherm outside AC & it was put in when the mobile home was built(1982) and I do not know what it is, I only can find the name of the manufacture, where would I find the model, & other...


mobile homes have split units, I would check the unit inside to see if it has any information. I would check all breakers inside and out, and thermostat. Hopefully it will be something simple. Good Luck Tim

Hi; Call Your local mobile home supply house and they can tell You how to or fax You the Info. Also the equipment will have the wiring diagrams glued to the inside covers of the outdoor unit as well the indoor unit cover.

Where can I purchase the filters for model#C3QA-042U


This looks like package type unit. your filters should be located inside the home where ever the air return is. You can find most any size filter at any home improvement store or locate a Baker Distrib. company branch and buy by the case. Steve

Size


Greetings jdreisbaugh,

The tonnage is usually found on the name plate on the condensing unit outside. 12000 btu = 1 ton, 24000 = 2 ton and so forth. In your case the unit is 36000 btu, therefore a 3 ton.

I hope this helps!

Vent ducts


Try to match the original ducting. Other than that, any ducting material will work, including the the thin aluminum piping sold for dryer vent.
