Question:
Please let me know what kind and size of filter I should use for my Payne Model #PG8MAAO48090.

The Payne PG8M furnaces use different filters depending on the physical width of the furnace cabinet, and on whether the cold air return is located on the side of the furnace or at the bottom.

Question:
What filter for model 9G9MAA036060?

Answer:
You can go to an installation manual for the Payne PG9MAA and look at the top of page 27 to find the correct sizes. There is one BIG caveat to using the installation manual: it is written for HVAC techs so do not try to move your furnace or perform any additional maintenance other than removing and cleaning or replacing the filter(s). Once you know the size(s) filter you need there are a number of online shops where you can find replacements.
