    Well that's a mess.
    First of all, where's the flue pipe? I hope you aren't running it with out the flue pipe connected.
    Looks like the whole back is the return air. Is/was there a filter on whatever is covering the blower motor?
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    There should be a flue pipe, as others have stated, BEFORE anything you run that.

    There should be a door on the back(font, too) that covers the blower motor and wheel assembly. The silver metal bar, going side to side in the photo, holds the filter bottom and the top leans against a similar bar inside at the top. Filter lays at an angle, like this \.

    Yeah....no.
    If it went like that you would have a complete frame to support the filter.
    Seems like you're missing the 2 back panels.
    I think the top panel would be solid and the bottom would hold the filter.Name:  pic.png

    Or, the back is completely solid and the filter goes on the top, can't see with the pic provided.
