Refrigerator Water Filter

Filed Under Refrigerator Repair

WaterHas it been more than 6 months since you last changed your water filter?  If so, you may not be drinking clean water.  Manufacturers recommend replacing water filters every 6 months at minimum. 

Are you unsure if you have a water filter?  There are a few ways to check:

 1.  If you have an icemaker

2.  If you have ice and/or water through the door, or

3.  Check your model using your model # here (if you can not find your model #, click here)

Using those ways, you will be able to find if you have a filter.  There are two types of filters:  Internal and External.  The internal filters usually come with the refrigerator, are brand specific, and can be found inside the fresh food section (Some Whirlpool/Kenmore/KitchenAid brand refrigerators have a filter that is located at the bottom of the refrigerator in the grille).  The external filters have to be installed secondhand, are universal in-line filters, and are usually installed in the back of the refrigerator.

Whatever type of filter you have, be sure to replace it every six months to ensure you and your family are drinking the cleanest water possible.

    Problem: Icemaker making ice cubes that smell like rotten eggs. Quality of water is not the problem, I have verified that side of the of the question. The refigerator is a Frigedaire aout 4 to 5 years old. Any suggestions??
