I cannot find the model Frigidaire furnace that I have

Customer Question
I cannot find the...

I cannot find the model Frigidaire furnace that I have online. It may be an older model .the model number is ***** I am trying to find out if it has a filter that needs to be changed. I bought this house recently and do not know.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

The house was built in 1980 and I am not sure if it was ever upgraded

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I just want to change the filter if necessary so yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

That is all....mainly I need to find someone who can tell me if I even have a filter in that model I cannot find one anywhere

Well the filter would be where the cold air return meets the furnace. Find the cold air return duct where it enters the bottom or side of the furnace and the filter should be there. Sometimes if it enters the bottom you need to remove the lower panel on te furnace to replace it. It really depends on how it was installed to locate the filter.

Ok it appears your return air duct is on the bottom can you remove that panel and see the blower area and snap a pic of it?

There are no fresh air fins in the only panel that can be removed and when I remove it there is no filter or slide out filter there. Also it is not a double panel...just one that covers the whole side of the furnace. I have never seen a set up like this before.
HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 7 months ago

Can you locate the main BLOWER that pushes air through the house...that would suck air through the filter if there is one. It would be right by the main blower. I see the pics, but the small blower in the pic is the exhaust blower.
