An original water filter is the one supplied with new side-by-side refrigerators and is sometimes branded with the same manufacturer name. We sell both original and replacement water filters. The replacement water filters that we sell are made by our carefully chosen manufacturers at ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 facility.
No. There are about 15 genuine fridge water filter types and over 200 different model numbers corresponding to the same filter. Manufacturers often take the same fridge water filters then attach their own labels to encourage you to purchase their replacement filters. The most important thing is to ensure that the fittings of your water filter are the same. In addition, you need to make sure that the replacement filter cartridge reduces the same contaminants in your water as the original filter.
You should change your refrigerator water filter cartridge every 4, 6, 9, or 12 months (depending on the filter/fridge manufacturer recommendation) or if you exceed the filter usage capacity, or if you notice a decrease in water flow, as per the fridge manufacturer's instructions.
Over time as the filter adsorbs and blocks water contaminants, the filter will become saturated reducing the flow of water and filtration ability. More importantly, newly formed bacteria will start to saturate the filter increasing the risk that bacteria will enter into your drinking water. This is also true for the ice maker as some bacteria can survive temperatures below zero degrees, therefore, even ice can become contaminated. Once the refrigerator water filter has been soaked on its initial use, it should be changed 6 months thereafter unless otherwise stated.
As stated in the answer above, the fridge filter should be changed every six months unless otherwise stated. In addition, some fridge manufacturers advise owners to change the water filter if the fridge water/ice dispenser has not been used for a number of weeks.
No, the medium used in filters is mainly carbon. All of the fridge filters we sell can be stored until you need them. As long as your water filters are stored away from chemicals, moisture and extreme or greatly fluctuating temperatures, there is no shelf life. For that reason, you may wish to take advantage of the saving offered when buying 2 or 3 fridge filters at a time.

Some side-by-side refrigerators have the Filter Indicator Light or Counter which will let you know when it is time to change the current water filter cartridge by turning red or reaching 0. With other American style fridges it's your responsibility to note the date on the filter when you installed it. We offer a Free filter reminder that will notify you by email, approximately 10 days before it is time to change your filter.
Yes, filters can be changed easily. Most water filter cartidges come with printed installation instructions. In addition, we provide general installation instructions and instructions for each model.
Most refrigerator filters will hit a stop when they are fully tightened. As long as you install them by hand (not using tools) you will feel the filter hit the stop and know that it is properly installed. Most internal refrigerator filters only require a quarter to a half turn to tighten.
If your side-by-side refrigerator has an indicator that tells you when to change the filter, it needs to be reset MANUALLY when you replace the filter. Each manufacturer provide their own instructions for resetting the indicator (please check your fridge manual for more information).
No, it will not invalidate your fridge warranty.
Some side-by-side fridges have both internal and external filter systems for the same model number. Please search by filter and select the filter number or picture that corresponds to your internal water filter. If you are still unsure please feel free to contact us providing the following details (fridge: make and model number - filter: make and model number - filter location: internal or external).
Yes, assuming that your water is microbiologically safe to drink, it is possible and safer than using an old refrigerator filter that has exceeded the recommended usage period. However, by not using a refrigerator water filter, over time your fridge may develop lime scale and other impurities which could damage and/or clog the water and ice dispenser function.
First, remove locking clips (red or blue) between filter and collets. Then, depress and hold white collet and pull tubing out.
