whisper heat by lennox filter change


I can't figure out how to change a furnace filter. I have taken off the top panel and there's nothing indicating a place where the filter is. HELP!

Typically if there isnt a filter rack on the out side of the furnace then the filter sometimes will be in the blower compartment on the R.A. side or bottom if on a box

okay, I'm not really sure what the R.A. side is. Everything looks enclosed and there doesn't seem to be a rack. Last year when it was being fixed, the repair guy just brought the filter up and showed me the old one. Stupid me for not watching him change it!!!!

I think it's the bottom panel then, but it doesn't seem to want to come off.

Set a reminder in your Cell phone, or if you have Yahoo, or Google, you can use the Calendars on them to set reminders. If you have a iPhone, you can also find some apps that allow for home maintenance tracking.
