It's a foam filter with six compartments encased in plastic frame which is a slide out filter. The dimentions are 13" X 8". Cold you please advise me. I would greatly appreciate it as the air conditioner is old, but still reliable. My e
mail is Boland41@att.net and my name is Carol. Thank you. This is a Emerson Quiet Cool unit.
No solution, just the same problem. I need the exact same filter, but cant find it with the information Boland41 posted. Can you help us by giving the store's name or phone number where the filter was found.

This is probably not a factory specified size. You need to look at the return to your furnace. There should be a frame or housing for the filter. Measure it to see what size you need. These are often customized by the installer to meet the configuration of your ductwork. You need to measure how tal and how wide, but also how deep (thick). If possible always get a pleated filter, and not one of those "horse hair" cheap ones.
If filter does not slide straight up an out, You need a Phillips screwdriver. . 1) take off both sides.6 screws each side, 4 under plastic caps. 2) top back there are 2 screws above the filter need the top of the unit. 3) on the top piece there are 2 screws, 1 on each side. Slide half of top off giving you better access to remove filter. Remember to reassembly in reverse
purplebunny, without know which brand and model number your AC unit is, it's hard to tell you. However, if it's a foam or plastic mesh filter, in a plastic frame, it is washable with warm water and dish washing liquid. Rinse it thoroughly and do not reinstall it until it's completely dry. Any other type filter will need to be replaced.
After looking at the specifications on the unit the filter should be in the bottom of the cabinet. I believe that you will have to remove the upper cover with the louvers, and then lift the lower cover without the louvers and pull outward to remove. The filter should be in the bottom of the compartment as this is an upflow type furnace. (Although it could be installed in another orientation it should be behind the blank panel still). If this is connected to ductwork, the installer may have moved the filter to whichever room the intake duct terminates in and installed a filter grill in that room. I have even seen them installed in floor returns under the floor register. I hope this helps.
you can actually make a filter for a lot cheaper,
anyhardware store will carry the filter material on a roll, or bolt, just but the thinnest stuff and cut it to desired size.
many times I have bought Mezlin from a Crafts store, it is very good filter, and has almost the exact permeability as most of your ac filters
