    Cannot find filter on the furnace

    I got a Goodman GMP system, and cannot find the filter for replacement. Thanks for any help.

    Here is the intake:

    The panels are all taped up with metallic tape:

    There are 3 return vents, 2 on the walls (1st floor) and 1 on the ceiling (2nd floor). No place to add filters on them either. Also, they are odd sizes:
    31 1/2 X 21 3/4
    25 1/2 X 9 3/4
    21 1/2 X 21 1/2

    Big box that flex duct connects to is your filter box.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    What he said.. And if you can not see the filter when you remove the furnace door you got other problems.
    The opinions expressed by me are not that of my employer.

    Thanks, so I have to remove all the tapes on the big box as well as the furnace door to get to the filter? Why is it all taped up? Do I need to tape it all back up after filter replacement?

    If you remove the furnace panel, you should be able to see the filter.

    might be taped up to prevent air leakage.

    This looks nasty, I assume this is a wall cavity somehow connected to the furnace and looks all moldy to me.

    It came out looking worse in picture than it actually is. No mold that I can see in there, but definitely dusty...
