Cleaning the filter

I have a Carrier central air gas furnace.  Before turning on the heat this year, I need to clean the filter.  The furnace has the type of filter that you clean instead of change.  I can't remember how to get the filter out so I can hose it down.  Can you tell me how to open the furnace and take out the filter?

The two doors are removable. remove top one that has all the small openings where you see the flames at. This is done be grabbing handle and lifting bottom part can be pulled towards you.than bottom one can be lifted up also. be carefull sometimes the edges are extremly sharp and can cut to the bone. (i know from experiance.) I belive a disposable filter is a much better way to go. only get the cheap spun polyester ones not the high filtration ones.

I have a carrier furnace and it seems to be only blowing out lukewarm or cold air and my house only gets up to 63 degrees


Make sure your filter is clean and that your heat registers are open and the cold air return is not blocked. So if you turn your thermostat up to 70 degrees is the burner shutting off before the house gets up to temp? If the thermostat has batteries are they new? Out side of that you may need a service tech.

What year was Amanda air command high efficiency 80 gas furnace produced. Have problems with dust. Notice furniture gets dusty when furnace on.


The year it was produced has no relevancy on tyhe dust in your home. You may want to consider having your ducts cleaned and possibly a pull and clean on your blower wheel. Also a good cleaning on the evaporator with routine filter changes will help with dust as well. Best Wishes.

I have a coleman furnace model 4066A656


Make sure your air filter is clean. Is the thermostat satisfied? or is the room temp. still below the thermostat setting? When ever you have to turn the power off and then back on to a furnace that usually indicates that the furnaces ignition control locked out. The first thing that I would try is cleaning the flame rod.

After 18 years of service, it is not cost effective to just replace the heat exchanger. Go the complete replacement route. There may be a utility company incentive to do it.

Cleaning electronic air filter


What brand and model is the air cleaner?
Often you can find the mfg. website and download the .pdf file of the manuals.

The air cleaner will be located on the return air duct of the furnace and should have a nameplate and a model# somewhere.

Some use disposable filters and some need to be cleaned with dish detergent and can be very fragile. Hope this helps.

Problem with furnace, air but no heat


the hot serface igniter may nead to be replaced again . if the is a lack of air
[ have this checked} getting to and frome the furnace it may be causing the furnace to cycle off the burner duing call for heat. it recycles back on and off untill the thermostat is saticfied. this means you are reusing the igniter more often the once a call for heat . therefore shorening it life expectancy.. make shure you are not blocking the air flows with over filtering ..whitch i have found to be the most common mistake . this and not changing or cleaning air filters often enough.

Central air conditoner unit doesnt blow cool air into home has some ice on the inlet heat and cooling lines going into the central air unit


Change the furnace filter. Make sure you use a cheap one when air conditioning, as the better ones restrict airflow when they filter out so much stuff and then plug up, not allowing enough air to pass over the cooling coil in the furnace's air plenum. Turn the A/C off for a few hours (with only the furnace fan on if possible) to melt the ice off the cooling unit inside the furnace.
