I have an American Standard Freedom 80 furnace and A/C
It is an older model and I am trying to find the Model and Serial number, but I can't get the front access panel open. The newer models appear to have knobs, but my cover does not have knobs.
I hope by attaching a photo will allow you to assist me. I can't find a user manual because i don't know the model number.
Thank you so much for your generous time and assistance.

Hi Mary, This looks like a typical furnace. First I would check the outside, it looks like there is a sticker on the upper left side of the furnace.
Some have screws to secure the cover. Check for screws across the middle where the top and bottom covers meet. If you look just below the American standard sticker the is a hand grip, grab this and pull straight up. The model # should be on the inside of the cover.

Hope this helps. Let me know.

I can answer questions on gas or electric furnaces, ac units and heat pumps. I don't work on boilers,chillers,or home appliances.


I have been in the HVAC trade for over 35 years. For the past 15 years I have owned my own business. I am semi-retired so I can answer questions in a timely manner.

I attended trade school for 5 years on weekends and evenings. This was very hard to do, but well worth it!
