The instructions state that there is packing material and hardware inside the case behind the filters which needs to be removed. I'm fortunate this was the case, since when I began removing the inside Styrofoam, I noticed a bolt lying on the bottom of the case beneath the blower assembly. Upon further inspection, I found another bolt and noticed the remaining 2 were only screwed in a couple of turns. I was unable to reinsert the missing bolts due to space and visual constraints, so I had to remove the 3 screws on the back which hold the blower in place. I was then able to maneuver the blower forward enough to reinsert and tighten the 4 socket head cap screws. It then took a bit more of contortion to get the blower back in place and lined up with the attaching screws.
This is plain and simple poor quality control, and poor workmanship. If it hadn't been so heavy and I hadn't had to destroy the box getting the machine out, I would have sent it back.
Hopefully it functions better than it was built.
