How To Clean Carrier Electronic Air Filter If you’re looking to clean your Carrier electronic air filter, you’ll want to make sure that you start by gathering the necessary tools and supplies before you even touch the air filter unit itself.

Read on to learn more about how to clean your Carrier electronic air filter safely and effectively.
remove the front grille
Carrier has a removable front grille that will allow you to access the inside of the unit. The first thing that you will want to do is remove the front grille. Depending on your model, you may need a wrench or screwdriver to get it off. It should just simply unscrew. Once it’s off, you can either use a vacuum cleaner or broom and dustpan to clean up any debris around the unit. Then, you’ll be able to see the carrier’s electronic air filter that needs to be cleaned. Remove this with caution by using a vacuum cleaner hose or pipe to avoid damaging it. Then wash the dirt and dust away with water from a hose, rinse with clean water, dry with compressed air if possible then replace it in its designated area within the unit. Make sure not to overfill your unit as this could create problems such as insufficient cooling or too much pressure drop across components because of condensate dripping into electrical components (refrigerant piping)

remove the blower wheel
You may need to remove the blower wheel from your furnace to clean the carrier’s electronic air filter. The process of cleaning a blower wheel is not difficult, but it can be time-consuming. This step-by-step guide will show you how to clean a blower wheel so that you can easily access and clean the carrier’s electronic air filter. First, turn off the power at the breaker box and then make sure the gas supply valve is closed. If your furnace does not have a pilot light, turn off all gas valves at the gas company’s meter. Remove the screws on either side of the frame that is holding it together and then remove any screws on top of the cover panel (or any other panels). Disconnect power wires by pulling them away from connectors with pliers or by twisting wire connectors with two sets of pliers until they pull free. Be careful when doing this as these wires carry live electricity!
rinse the parts with water
Cleaning the carrier’s electronic air filter is easy and can be accomplished in a few minutes. The first step is to rinse the parts with water. Once they are clean, use compressed air or a vacuum cleaner to blow out any dirt or dust that remains inside the machine. Be sure not to use any cleaning agents, as some can cause damage if they come into contact with electrical components. After the machine has been cleaned, it’s a good idea to test it for functionality by plugging it in and turning it on for a few seconds before shutting it off.
