    Thanks for your note. I pulled out the bottom rack for clear access and am still unsure of the location of these filters. Are we possibly talking about the 2 3/4" round plastic spinner near the front right side of the bottom of the unit? If so, I see no obvious way of accessing the filters and don't want to just pull on it without knowing if that's even the right spot. Your help is appreciated. Thanks,.

Hello. no filter. But you should clean the interior of the dishwasher at least once a month. To do that, toss 2 cups of white vinegar into an empty dishwasher and then run your hottest, longest wash cycle. When it is done, your dishwasher will glisten and smell great too! Joe

Empty the dishwasher. Remove all dishes including pots, pans and silverware.

Pull the bottom rack out as far as possible. The filters are under the basket on the Maytag dishwashers. It may be convenient to lift the rack out. Typically, if you lift, the wheels leave the track.

Remove the "Coarse" filter. This filter is a small, round knob in the middle of the "Fine" filter. A round knob is around the "Coarse" filter. Hold on to the handle and lift straight up.

Knock the contents of the "Coarse" filter into the garbage can. Run the faucet to remove smaller particles. Wipe the dishwasher filter with the sink sponge if debris is stuck-on. Push back into the filter holder when complete.

Take out the "Fine" filter. Turn the round knob that is around the "Coarse" filter counter-clockwise. Once the knob is loose, pull up. The "Fine" filter will come out of the dishwasher.

Rinse the "Fine" filter with the hot water faucet. Scrub with the sink sponge to remove any stuck-on fragments. Replace the filter into the dishwasher. Push down and turn the knob clockwise to tighten.

Why does it freeze on occasion?


coils on these units should not freeze 1st ill bet that production of water removal was not up to par so you turned setting down this makes unit work longer without a rest (cooldown) period (not good) so now the gas charge might be low (from overheating ) and/or filter will require more frequent cleaning

How to clean humidifier


I generally use White Distilled Vinegar. Clean your unit out the best you can with warm soapy water first and then soak or add the straight vinegar into the filter containment area and use a mild bleach solution for the water tank and soak and swish a little for 15 minutes then drain and rinse with fresh cold water and let air dry. The mineral deposits will slowly dissolve but will still take some scrubbing with a blue pan scrubbing pad or hard toothbrush. Depending on how hard your water is and if you use a water treatment additive will make a big difference in the cleaning process. Some people prefer to use distilled water in cool units as well as steam since it is almost completely mineral free and doesn't cost to much. Regular cleanings based on useage and water condition will greatly help the life and good operation of any humidifier including periodic filter changes if required.

Cleaning instructions


Dirt is the biggest enemy of your furnace. It can waste fuel and drastically lower efficiency. Dirt affects all three basic components of your furnace, so cleaning is the most important part of regular maintenance. The three parts of the furnace should be cleaned: the filter system, the blower, and the motor.

The furnace filter should be replaced or cleaned at the beginning of the heating season and about once a month during periods of continuous use. To check the filter, take it out and hold it up to the light. If it looks clogged, replace it with a new filter of the same type and size regardless of the length of time it has been used.

Step 4: Clean blower assembly, belts and pulleys to blower, and motor housing. Cleaning blower is critical if furnace has a squirrel-cage fan, because openings in this type of blower often become clogged with dirt. To clean blower, remove panel that covers filter to gain access to blower or panel on front of furnace. This panel may be slip-fit on hooks or held by series of retaining screws. Access to inside of blower is usually gained by sliding out fan unit, which is held on track by screws.

If power cord to fan assembly is not long enough to permit fan unit to slide all the way out, disconnect cord. Mark wire connections first so you'll be able to reassemble unit correctly. With toothbrush, clean each fan blade and spaces between blades. Then, with vacuum cleaner hose, remove all dirt and debris loosened by brushing. Vacuum belts and pulleys. Wipe motor housing clean to prevent heat buildup in motor.

Where is the lint filter


Most filters for MICROWAVE OVENS are located on the underside of the unit.

To access, just unplug the unit and remove the rotating glass tray from inside, then tip the unit up on its side or rear and make sure it is secure and stable there.

At that point you should see the access panels for the filters on the bottom. Some just pop out without tools and some require the removal of 1 or 2 screws to get it out.

Remove and clean / replace as per the instructions in your owner's manual.

Good luck.

Helo I am muhammad iqbal i fill gas in unit after few mints its chowked i fix the new gas filter in out door unit and clean all gas systam out door unit also have problam


Dear Iqbal! Remove filter drier again. And flush out with Nitrogen. Now, Braze filter drier and then vacuum minimum 1 hour. Close valves and break the vacuum by charging little freon, say 80psi in ideal.
Run the unit and start gas charging till return good and back pressure 60 psi @ 98 degree ambient.
Now, the unit will survive for longer period further, provided servicing the unit periodically. Helpful?

My Fedders model AEJ12E7AG ices up. This is a combo AC/Heating window unit. The heat works fine. Has it leaked out the freon or is there a circulation proble? Is it repairable?


The most common cause of icing in these category of units is a dirty air filter or partiallly dirty condensing or evaporator coil. If the unit is over 5 years old or has been operating in a dusty environment or hasn't had much service, then also check the blower for dirty blades.

The evaporator coil is on the inside and has the filter in front of it. The condenser coil is on the outside and has no filter. It too requires periodic cleaning.

The unit will need to be partially disassembled and the coils cleaned with a stiff brush to remove any build up if they are dirty. That goes for the blower fan too. Look through the side of the casing through the vent louvers to inspect the outdoor coil. Be careful not to bend fins on the coil if possible if the coil(s) need cleaning.

Water is not condensing


Most dehumidifiers do not have an air filter and periodic coil cleaning is required. Remove the plastic housing and clean coils with water or air. Be sure unit is unplugged and dry before plugging back into the wall soket.

Ventillation of microwave


You mean NNS254? You can download your owner's manual here.

On page 4, it says, "If this appliance is to be vented inside the kitchen, be sure the charcoal filter kit is installed in the unit before you operate."

Also, on page 28, "The Charcoal Filter cannot be cleaned and should be replaced periodically every 6 to 12 months, or more often if necessary."

So the answer is "yes".

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

LG dehumidifier developing ice


First you would need to clean the filter. LG recommends cleaning the filter every 2 weeks on their dehumidifiers. The second thing you need to do is clean the coils periodically. On this dehumidifier it should include a brush for cleaning the coils. It is located on the top of the bucket. To access the coils the following needs to be done:

1.) Unplug the unit from power
2.) Remove the bucket and also the air filter
3.) Remove the front pannel by removing the 2 lower screws and depressing the tabs.
4.) Once the panel is removed you will see the coils. You need to clean them with the brush. Go in an up and down motion to remove the dirt and dust.

Now use the reverse steps to put it back together. If your dehumidifier runs often I recommend you clean the coils about every 3 to 4 months. This is a common problem on alot of dehumidifiers and people think their dehumidifier is broken. Most of the time the coils are just dirty which causes the water to stay between them and freeze. Keep me posted. Also if you found this response helpful, please rate this solution when you get a chance. Thanks - Tech101
