How do I change the filter in my Ruud Achiever series

I have a Ruud Achiever series heat pump/AC. The air handler was installed on the horizontal in my crawl space. I want to change the filter but cannot locate it.

I'd look in one of 2 areas.

1. often there is a central return in the house. This is the place where the air gets pulled back to the unit and is likely very close to your thermostat. Check for a filtered louvered grill there and see if your filter is located here. If so, you can access the filter by opening the filter frame with a screwdriver or even a coin.

2. Otherwise I would expect that your filter is on the return-air side of your air handler (where the blower is) Older models have the filter actually inside the air handler in the blower compartment. Newer models may have a small separate filter door. I'd look in these areas.

hope this helps

SOURCE: Replacement of filter on Ruud Achiever series heat pump/AC

You must first remove the blower compartment panel. The filter should be in there. However, since this unit is in a crawl space you may have a return air filter grill. Look at your return grill. Does it have a filter? If not does it have latches so that you can open it? If so measure the opening and install a new filter there. I hope this helps.

Sounds like your fan manager/Fan relay has malfunctioned.
In some cases it could possibly be the program on a Thermostat not allowing the fan to turn on, But in my experiences sounds like a bad fan relay.
Hope this helps.

What's wrong with your current AHU? Any Ruud dealer can assist you. Most 4 ton units work with r-22 or 410a. As a side note, most parts in an air handler can be replaced unless the case is rusted thru.

Take the front panel off the air handler and look for a heat element. You should notice controls and relays with larger wiring to it. It may not have any heat but you can add it.

Air Handler leaking


First make sure unit is level. Drain pan may be dirty. On the rheem or Ruud unit the back of the pan gets stopped up. Ithas small holes that let the water by and they get stopped up. Now even though your drain is clean you may have a stopped up dain pan. Check this > These are problems you can take care of your self. Open up the top panel of your unit and you can look down on the drain pan. Check for dirt and stoppage near the outlet of the drain pan. You amy also have a cracked drain pan but I doubt it. Rus

I have a RUUD Achiever heat pump. Where does the filter go? I don't see a slot for it. I can't even tell what size filter it takes, since there is no defined slot.


it would be at the air handler portion of things (the unit inside) you might have to take off the lower door to access it it would be located at the bottom of the unit or somewhere in the duct work before that point look for spots that say airflow and will show an arrow--->
