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
good luck

My unit does not go on. I press the on button and hear it then 10 sec pass hear it but it doesn't light and red light doesn't go on and then it shuts off


tep 1: Check the thermostat
  • Make sure that your thermostat is set to "cool" and not "heat" (if it's set to heat, your AC won't turn on no matter what).
  • urn the temperature setting 5 degrees below the current temperature to see if your AC will turn on.
  • No good? Then you need to...
tep 2: Check the air filter
  1. Find your return vent's filter (the return vent is where air gets sucked into the air conditioner).
  2. Check to see if the filter is dirty (if you can barely see light coming through it, it's too dirty).
  3. Change the filter if it's dirty.
    "Wait, why am I doing this?"
    A dirty air filter blocks air from returning to the AC, reducing airflow over the evaporator coil, causing it to ice up.
    This causes a low-pressure switch to trip and shut down your AC's compressor (the heart of your air conditioner) to prevent it from being damaged.
    So you need to change the air filter to prevent all that.

Ac unit does not have anything to hold filter in place


Assuming you are talking about a residence unit, the filter is supposed to have a wire mesh on one side. This mesh is to prevent paper-alike filter getting sucked in. Filters have arrow-marks for air-flow, double check that.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2000 Chevy Cavalier 4cyl?


Fuel Filter REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Remove the quick connect fitting from the filter 91141p82.jpg
Fig. 2: Using a 21mm back-up wrench and a 16mm wrench on the line, loosen the feed line from the filter 91141p83.jpg
Fig. 3: Carefully unthread the feed line from the filter and . . . 91141p84.jpg
Fig. 4: . . . remove the filter from the retaining bracket by pulling the filter outward 91141p85.jpg
NOTE: The vehicles covered in this manual are equipped with "Quick Connect'' fuel fittings. For more information regarding these fittings, please refer to Section 5 of this manual. An inline filter can be found in the fuel feed line attached to the rear crossmember of the vehicle. CAUTION
Before disconnecting any component of the fuel system, refer to the fuel pressure release procedures found in Section 5.
  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure as outlined in Section 5.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle with jackstands.
  3. Grasp the filter and nylon fuel line fitting on the tank-to-filter line. Twist the "quick-connect'' fitting 1?4 or a turn in each direction to loosen any dirt within the fitting. Use compressed air to blow out the dirt from the fittings at the end of the fuel filter.
  4. Detach the quick-connect fitting by pushing inward toward the filter and grasping the plastic tab around the connector and pull apart. If additional assistance is required to disconnect the fitting, tool J 38778 or equivalent can be placed between the filter and the fitting release mechanism to carefully force the two apart. Be careful not to bend the special tool. NOTE: Always use a back-up wrench anytime the fuel filter is removed or installed.
  5. Using a backup wrench (where possible) to prevent overtorquing the lines or fittings, loosen and disconnect the feed line from the filter. Be sure to position a rag in order to catch any remaining fuel which may escape when the fittings are loosened.
  6. Remove the fuel filter from the retaining bracket. To install:
  7. Before installing a new filter, apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male tube end of the filter. This will ensure proper attachment and prevent a fuel leak.
  8. Position the filter into the retaining bracket with the directional arrow facing away from the fuel tank, towards the throttle body. NOTE: The filter has an arrow (fuel flow direction) on the side of the case, be sure to install it correctly in the system, with the arrow facing away from the fuel tank.
  9. Push the connectors on the quick-connect fitting together to cause the retaining tabs/fingers to snap into place. Pull on both ends of the connection to be sure they are secure.
  10. Connect the fuel feed line to the filter, then tighten, using a backup wrench to prevent damage, to 20-22 ft. lbs. (27-30 Nm).
  11. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  12. Connect the negative battery cable and tighten the fuel filler cap, then start the engine and check for leaks.

Leak at one of the fittings on my Culligan RO system


Too much pressure in holding tank will not cause leaks in the RO unit. All too much pressure in tank will do is cause low or no product water in RO tank. Older Culligan RO systems (H8, H83, H5) had fittings that used metal locking washers and these can cut the RO line after the RO has been moved around while changing filters. Newer styles (AC30, Water Tower) use quick connect fittings and the RO line may work loose after filter changes and system being moved around under sink.
Turn the incoming water off to RO, turn the water off on RO tank, open the RO faucet to relieve pressure and pull the line off feeding the RO tank, inspect (you may want to cut off a small portion of the line at the filter) check the o-ring and re-install.

Filters for a rudd model # rkkb-a120cm22e


get a tape measure and measure it. lets say the size is 20" x 24". the filter size will be 23 1/2" x 19 1/2" why they do this i dont know.

if it is a real old unit just go to publix or walmart (publix is only in florida) and get one of those crappy blue filters that you hose out. you can cut it with sicsors and it fits underneath that crappy metal u wire.

if you have the unit i think you should just run the old blue "hog's hair filter" it sucks but so does your old unit.....

Car wont rev


under the bonnet on the back of the mechanical pump there is a unit held in by 2 bolts
remove this unit and on the end there is a tiny filter
this will need cleaning because when the lift pump brakes down tiny parts of it get sucked up through the pipes and clog the filter
it may be best to feplace the fuel filter aswell

There is not an air filter in the unit and we have just purchased the home with the unit in it. I need to know where the filter goes, Tjis a coleman evcon central air unit


You should be able to open the lower panel on the Central Furnance unit and the filter would go against the side where the main cold air return plenum is located. There is usually either a slot/edge for the filter to slide into, or a set of clips or a wire spring that holds the filter in place, preventing it from getting sucked into the squirel cage blower.

If you want to give Coleman a call at 1-877-726-5362, I'm sure they'd send you a owners manual for your unit so you can see what periodic cleaning and such is needed to keep it working properly.

Hope you found this info helpful. Best Regards!

Carrier weathermaker 8000


HEY< so this is an upflow system, there can be only 2 spots, 1 below the fan in a little rack, or follow the return air vent system ,(thats the sucking side,) and theres a large grill that sucks air in thats the filter grill, If you unlatch the door, and open it you can measure the inside lips that holds the filter, thus the filter grill! But it this filter is hard to fit, then theres only a plain grill and you need to add a filter inside the air handling unit below the fan cage,, and add a"blue MO-hair type filter , size to-cut and add below the fan!Thank-you-very-much!
