Help needed replacing humidifier pad, carrier 49FP017100

Hi, I feel dumb for asking this, but I cannot remember how to replace the old pad for this forced air furnace humidifier.

There is a side access door, but the pad does not slide out that way. There are 4 screws on the front door where the blower fan is mounted, but removing them does not allow the door to come off. I haven't tried pushing too hard on it as it is plastic.

Can anyone educate me - thanks!

Welcome to the forums.

It looks like two ways to remove the pad. Probably easiest from the right side access cover. The link is the manual for your unit.

Thanks PJ - I actually have the manual and I see the 2 ways but I can't make the cover budge. I think the side door method is out due to space concerns. In any event it just says riase it and pull out and it does not move.

Once I take the 4 screws out of the front, the cover does not budge. I'm wondering if I need to disconnect the water supply at the top, it may protrude down into the unit preventing the pad from coming out?

I'm not familiar with that exact model. You wouldn't normally need to remove the water attachment to replace a filter. I'm wondering if some type of sealer was used on that cover keeping it stuck on.

Thanks PJ - I got it. It just needed a little elbow grease. I think some of the mineral deposits from the water running through there stuck it up a bit.
