Re: A Good Fit and a good quality air filter
The kit I have seen is a foam filter that coveres the inside of the furnace or air handler door and has soem wires to hold it in place when off. This can be made easily if you have a welding supply close by buy some 1/8 inch steel wires and bend to fit your door. bend the ends at 90' the the rest of the wire and put the ends behind the door and the filter between the 2. Hope this helps and please rate me accordingly. Good Luck

there is a good chance it is supposed to be in the door to the furnace and held in with thin metal rods like coat hangers. the air pulls through the door. you but the cut to fit style filter element. good luck
Amcor was bought out, and no longer supports this product or provides replacement parts for it. The unit has two filters:
Washable air filter which collects large dust particles and prevents bacteria build-up
An activated carbon filter to help remove odor
There is no manufacturer of filters (carbon or air) for this product, however if it were in my possession I would remove the carbon filter and take it into my local Home Depot or Lowes ( or whatever you have in your neighborhood) and see if they have something that might fit that is similar. Many filters work in more than one brand. The air filter should be washable still, if it is damaged you can probably do the same thing I suggested with the carbon filter.
Recommend a washable lifetime filter that can be custom fitted for your unit. There are many different brands of cut to fit and custom sized filters available. The original filters supplied with the unit are usually washable as well although the manufactures are not including it all the time anymore.
sounds like the unit has a low charge and is cutting out on a low press safety. This is more then likey not something you can fit yourself most of this units are not really serviceable with out cutting the lines open and adding a valve. If the unit is still somewhat new you can try for a warranty repair, if not you are better off to replace it.
what I have used to prevent the a/c filter from being sucked into unit was a section of wire shelving (found at local hardware store) use linemans pliers or side cutters to cut the shelving to size to fit in specified filter area
These guys list the actual sizes of a good selection of goodman filters - just measure the old one or the space where it should be and match it to the right filter(should be a fairly tight fit).
and this site describes what the different filter types available are
Hope this helps :)
