The Air filter should be located under a grid in the ceiling somewhere in the house. That is where the air in taken and returned after it passes thru the air handler in the attic. There has to be an access to the attic in order to service the air handler if needed. That is Code. Your system, I presume, is a "split system" with the condensing unit outside and he air handler in the attic...

Can you see the condition of the coil itself? If it is blocked this could be a cause for the frozen coils. Also, check the condition of the blades on the indoor fan. Dirt and dust accumulation on the blades reduces airflow.

Air conditioner blows cold air, but will not cool a 1300 sq. ft. home past 75. Coils do not appear frozen and drain tube is clear.

If you have serviced the air conditioner such as cleaning the condenser coil, changing the filter, cleaning the evaporator coil and checking the refrigerant, you have done about all you can do. Most air conditioners can cool up to a 30 degree differential. If its 100 outside most units will be able to maintain approx. 70 degrees. It also depends on how tight the home construction is as well. Find out if you have ample enough insulation in the attic. This always makes a good difference. Also, is there insulation in the walls and how tight are the windows? In the middle of summer all depending what the weather is like, most air cond's are running at their peak. If you have not cleaned the outdoor condenser coil with a hose and a sprayer, you might do so. Turn the power to the unit off first. Also, have the refrigerant checked. Hope this helps.

I have a 12,000 Amcorair mini split. Air handler shut down, popped the breaker. Turned the breaker on. The air handler displays F1 fault code.

Hello I think F1 fault is air filter...If it is clogged it can cause iceing (on the coil) and will trip a breaker.Give a good clean/wash or replace.

Trying to locate relay for very old GE airhandler located in attic at a church with model # of air handler unreadable. relay has 24 volt coil built in and has both AMF and Potter and Brumfield stamps. Only...

I have had to rewire the old GE furnaces to where I can set a new relay right beside where the old one was. I know this is not the easiest thing but if this is the furnace I think it is it may be the only answer

Just purchased a home and was never told where the air filter is

Well if it not in the boot looking thing coming off the side of the furnace then it is most likely inside the furnace.

You may have dirty stopped up drain pan or drain. Take a dryvac and **** the drain from outside. This will clear all the drain. Is it cooling ok? Is the unit in an attic? The drain is not hard to clean. Check your coil(evap) inside to see if this is clean. Rus

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!

Where is my a/c filter?

If your rooftop unit is self contained with no pipes leaving it except the condensate drain line there should be a narrow removable panel to access where the filters are located. If you have three pipes exiting the roof top unit two will go to an air handler located in the attic of the home. The filters will be located in the air handler.

Open the access panel on the air handler in the attic and take a look at the evaporator coil. If you have no airflow, and you just changed the air filter, then you probably have a buildup of airborne crud on the coil that's blocking airflow. If you do have a layer of buildup blocking airflow through the coil in the air handler, just take a $5 fin comb and scrape all the crud off the coil fins. This can make a dramatic difference. Hope this helps! ;)
