SOURCE: can't find FURNACE filter

First you have to get the old filter/s out. If not it will cause big problems in a short time. Use a coat hanger to grab the filter if you cant reach it. When you remove the old filter you will probably see how to install new ones. I think more than one filter is required for this furnace. Note the sizes of the old filters and buy the same replacements.

Don't worry about cutting some tape if needed. You can get another roll at any hardware supply. If all else fails, measure the interior of the return box and buy the right size filters. Remember, you must remove the existing filters!

SOURCE: I have a Rheem Criterion

Roscoe007 shouldnt speak unless he knows what he is talking about, as a heater installer i am telling you the ignitor needs to be replaced, the very fact that the ignitor does light for about 30 sec than goes out rules out any issue with the themostat, replace the ignitor!

SOURCE: 92 yota 4runner fuel filter replacment

The fuel filter is under pressure so be sure to remove the gas cap before attempting to remove the filter. If not you will strip out the nuts. Run your vehicle until the reserve fuel light has been on for 20 or so miles. This way you can let the remaining fuel (1-2 gallons) run into a gas can and you can reuse it. Unscrew the nuts from the gas tank side and the engine side, then install the new filter. The fuel filter is located on the passenger side, almost directly under the front seat, but on the undercarriage. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: furnace filter is black and sooty wall seem to be sooty

   By sealed unit you mean that the burner air comes from outside of the house?      You have checked the heat exchanger for cracks by removing the burners and looking with a mirror and flashlight, correct, or had a service tech so?
The furnace burners have enough air and are burning clean (blue) with just a tip of orange at the end? You bought the house new and the fireplace has never been used?  If it has been used to clean smoke for the house for whatwever reason I woudl start by havign the ducts cleaned.   Another possibility I have seen is insolation inside of ductwork breaking down.

sounds like a fuel tank inspection/flush or replacement is on the horizon.... sometimes dirty fuel has contaminated your tank or the tank itself is rusting from the inside out... either way it needs to be addressed... drain the tank analyse what gets drained for particles and water...send the tank to a radiator shop for a complete boil out/inspection....blow out the lines and replace the filter again along with the fuel bowl etc. after that all should be well?

Rheem Criteria II furnace filter location

If it's an updraft, filter may be at bottom of unit. Filters are usually installed in the return air side of the system. If you have a return air plenum it may be under a removable plate cover. Also check you return air grill inside your house, filter may be inside this grill,which have opening latches.

I have a Rheem Heat and air unit. Model # RGAC-080AW Serial # CM3D104 F4782 4794 and need to find out where the filter for the unit is located.

What filter are you talking about?
Air filter: Usually with a heat and air unit, the air filter is located behind the return air grill.
Return air grill looks similar to ordinary ceiling or floor grill where the hot or cold air blows into each room. Except the return air grill is larger and is usually put close to the heat-air unit.
Remove the grill and replace filter every 3-6 months.
If no filter is present, then dust and hair get stuck on the coils and unit will not meet temperature setting.
See image of typical air filter:

I have 2goodmanGKS9 gas furnaces(propane) installed on 27 Dec 2009. Both units are working. One is in the basement adjacent to the rear outside wall. Lower unit heats about 1200 square feet. Lower...

well lets start with the 2" pvc pipe. that is a combustion air intake it does not put air into the room, i hope. this is a 90% furnace and they should have installed it that way. there should be 2 pipes to the outside the other is combustion gases. the dust problem maybe caused by the air return pulling the air to that room. the bedroom normaly does not get the trafic that the rest of the condo it would not have as much dust.

Where is the filter on the Criterion II

On a upflow model, the factory location for the air filter is just below the blower. Remove the front furnace doors to get to it.
If it is a downflow furnace, remove both furnace doors, and look inside the blower area, they will be sitting above the blower. Usually 2 air filters, in a "V" formation and are sometimes hard to get to.
If you do not find the filters here, someone has removed them or they may have been relocated to the return air grill, a large grill, usually located in the hallway or higher up on the wall.
If the Rheem factory air filter is still being used, it will be a black plastic frame and the filter area will look like a window screen.
Good luck and have a great day.

I don't know where the filter goes on the furnace.

On one side of your furnace,there is a return air duct that is connected,and most of them have a slot on the side, and some are on the top. The slot should be about 1 inch by either width,or height ( A 16" by 24" filter would fit a 16" by 24" return duct.) Some have a piece of sheet metal made to cover the slot that just lifts off for access. If your unit has an electronic air filter which should be in same location,it's cover should be able to pull out from the front.If it does not have a filter slot,pull off the doors and look inside the lower section and you should find it.

Need to locate filter on model PGJ042100-1

Filters are usually added to the sheetmetal seperate from the furnace. All air must be filtered before entering the furnace. Turn on heat and feel ductwork to determine which direction air flow goes, warm will be supply and room temp. will be return. Filter should be on return side of furnace. Some of them may be filter grilles located in a central reurn on older homes with only one return in a hallway or sometimes the correct ductwork is not installed and they are inside the bottom panel where return ducts connect
