I'm going to tell you about how to change an air conditioner filter. Now in most of your residential homes, your air filters are going to be located in your return air, which is usually right by your thermostat. So to change your filter you want to open this grill up and there's usually a couple of fasteners here at the top, you just simply rotate these out and pull down the grill and then you can pull the filter out. Now there's a couple of different type of filters that you can use. This is a high efficiency filter. As you can see it has more of a solid fabric to it. The standard filters are fiberglass filters and those are usually a blue in color. Those work fine but they filter out actually a very low percentage of your dust and spores and different things that can get into your house. So these are good to use. Regardless of the type of filter you use, you want to make sure that you change these filters out at least on a three month, every three month basis. If you happen to live in a particularly dusty environment you may want to do it at a more frequent interval than that. So when you go to put this in now this particular filter, this is what you want your filters to look like, this particular has been changed recently, so you can see it's nice and white, there's not a lot of dust. When you get a lot of dust, and this becomes a very dark color, and that's when you know it's time to replace it. So when you get ready to put this back in, one thing that you'll want to look in is these filters actually have an airflow indication. So they go back into the filter and they go a particular way. And you want to make sure that of course the air flows in, so you want that arrow pointed towards the duct. So it's easiest if you put the bottom in first and you push the top in and you want to just make sure it's securely against the base. Then we can close our grill, push the fasteners back in and you're ready to go. Now in some cases you may have a central air conditioning system that actually has the filters located in the unit itself. So that might be the one exception. You can always consult your owners manual to find out exactly where those filters are.

Direction of flow air conditioner filter

There are quite a few possible answers to this because you did not specify what type of unit you are asking about: Central Air, Window unit, Stand-alone-upright Unit, etc.
If this is a central-air unit or a unit that uses your furnace blower to circulate air, then in most cases the filter is a square or rectangular shape and is between 1 and 4 inches thick. The "Direction" the air flows through the filter is indicated by a set of arrows printed on the thin edge of the filter - usually with the word "flow" or "Air flow". Insert the filter with the arrow(s) pointing toward the furnace/blower. Another way to determine flow direction is if the filter has a mesh or screen on one side of the filter media. In this case the screen or mesh would go toward the furnace/blower when the filter is inserted.

Why is my ac window unit not cooling as well as it use to? .

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC105P1A, is not cooling as well as it used to. Please try cleaning the air filter as well as the cabinet.

Air Filter Cleaning:

The air filter should be checked at least once a month to see if cleaning is necessary. Trapped particles in the filter can build up and cause an accumulation of frost on the cooling coils.

• Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position (where applicable).
• Open the front panel.
• Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out.
• Wash the filter using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is thoroughly dry before replacing.
• Or, instead of washing you may vacuum the filter clean.

Cabinet Cleaning:

• Be sure to unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or fire hazard. The cabinet and front may be dusted with an oil-free cloth or washed with a cloth dampened in a solution of warm water and mild liquid dishwashing detergent. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry.
• Never use harsh cleaners, wax or polish on the cabinet front.
• Be sure to wring excess water from the cloth before wiping around the controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the air conditioner.
• Plug in air conditioner.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

The rear defroster has no connection to the air cleaner at all,you need to check for power to the tabs glued to the rear window or the grid in the window is torn.You can buy a repair kit for the grid at an auto suplly store and anyone can make the repair with the kit in minutes.
