Trying to find out how to change the filter for Goodman AC model # ARUF36C14BB

The filter compartment is at the front bottom of your indoor section of the air conditioner.

There should be an access plate located there and may have a 5/16" screw on each side you need to remove to get the access cover off.

An air filter should be visible, and you should slide the filter out toward you for removal.

I have 2 Carrier units, one for downstairs and another for upstairs. I think the blower unit must be in the attic. Do I have to go up into the attic to replace any filters? Do I need 2 EZ Flex FIlter...

You may or may not have to go into attic, depends if an additional filter system is installed. May have filter grille's install in ceiling, or wall. If no filter's on the interior, then there should be in the furnance or filter rack in the attic. Filters should be used for no more than 3 months without changing or cleaning if washable.

I'm looking for owners/operating/service manuals. Thanks.

Check in your attic or wherever the air handler unit is located. A lot of times, the documents are left there for homeowners to access and keep for their records.

If you cannot find them, I would recommend checking Goodman's website. If its not on there anywhere, you may be able to email Goodman and get a manual sent by way of PDF file.

How to change the filter ?

Your filter is in one of two places.

Either its in a filter grille or its at the furnace/air handler itself. If its in the grille, simply remove and replace.

If its in the unit, it will be at one far end of the unit opposite where the electrical connections are. It's uncommon for Goodman to be filtered at the unit as they do not have an independent filter access panel but I have seen it.

If its not in either of these locations, you either do not have a filter installed or your installing contractor has installed a filter box somewhere that will need to be located.

Hope this helps.

Need location of drain pipe on horizontal attic a/c unit?

If you have a shop vac (wet vac) I suggest finding the drain outlet and sucking the restriction out. However if you don't then you need to open the air handler (coil) and pour about a cup of Bleach, not drain cleaner in to the coil drain pan. The restriction is likely in the trap ( U shaped piece of pvc). Good luck!

Goodman CACF048B2A Air. need to know the location of the replacement filter

The disposable filter is always in the return air of an a/c unit. If your unit has a furnace attached in an upright position then the filter is under the furance blower wheel. You will have to remove the bottom access panel to see and replace it. If your unit is horizontally installed in an attic then the filter will most likely be up in that return air duct or possibly in the return air grille possibly mounted in a hallway or someplace like that.
