Lift up the air filter and carefully slide it out the door
Be careful not to damage the honeycomb screens on the back of the air filter door and in
the fabric card cage. Damage to the honeycomb screens can restrict airflow, cause
overheating, and affect EMI performance.
Push filter up
Visually check the condition of the air filter to determine whether to clean or install a new replacement.
Dirty—You can vacuum or replace the filter.
Do not vacuum the air filter while it is installed in the chassis. You must remove the air filter completely
before you clean it to prevent contaminants from being drawn into the bays or cage.
Worn or torn—If the filter appears worn or torn, dispose of it in a responsible manner and install a
replacement air filter (ACS-GSR16-FLTR=).
