Question about Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

Filter Placement Ruud UBHA

Purchased a condominium in Florida with a Ruud UBHA unit installed.
Owner had store bought filter duct taped to bottom of unit.
There does not appear to be a 'tray' system to slide filter in and out. I do see a slotted opportunity but appears that could only take the free form filter as there is not entry in from the side, only by forcing one in from the bottom.
Is there a missing tray that attaches to the bottom of the unit to house the filter?
Your help is greatly appreciated and your time well respected.

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.

Where is the filter in ruud model UBHC-21J11NFC

It depends upon configuration- or how it was installed.

In general terms, wherever the air from the structure is being drawn into the cabinet for air recirculation/intake- the filter will be in the vicinity of the ducting connecting to the Ruud heat pump/AC.. It will be before the "A coil" assembly (the copper tubbing with fins roughly the shape of an "A".

This assumes it was installed correctly. If not, the A Coil will collect a thick layer of dust on the side facing the incoming air flow.

The relevent Ruud documentation is here:

If there is any doubt about the integrity of the installation, contact an HVAC contractor familiar with your area to inspect and make corrections if needed.

Recommend a washable lifetime filter that can be custom fitted for your unit. There are many different brands of cut to fit and custom sized filters available.
The original filters supplied with the unit are usually washable as well although the manufactures are not including it all the time anymore.

The duct work on the return air can be made to accommodate any size of filter and it may not be the size the furnace takes. Some installers can cut a slot in the outside of the duct and put the filter there, bypassing the manufacturers method of mounting. I would measure the slot or mounting and see what comes close.

I have a RUUD Achiever heat pump. Where does the filter go? I don't see a slot for it. I can't even tell what size filter it takes, since there is no defined slot.

it would be at the air handler portion of things (the unit inside) you might have to take off the lower door to access it it would be located at the bottom of the unit or somewhere in the duct work before that point look for spots that say airflow and will show an arrow--->

There is no filter (was not installed) in the bottom of my unit (inside) air handler.... Why not? Now I am having problems...could this by why???

The new rheem and Ruud units have to have a filter rack installed in the unit. If it is an older unit the rack is inside the unit. You need to pull bottom cover of unit. I do not know why the new units do not com with filter racks and I have asked the distributor this question.Rusty
