Refrigerator Filter Replacement

If you have a newer refrigerator with a water dispenser and filter, it may come with a light indicator. This is to signal when it’s time to change the filter. Replacing the filter as recommended is essential to ensure you can always access safe and clean drinking water. Keep in mind that these indicators are time-based. So, depending on the quality of your water supply, you may need to replace the filter sooner if you notice a decrease in water flow. So, keep a close eye on the water flow. Replace the filter if necessary to maintain the quality of your drinking water.

Refrigerator Filter Tips

Here are a couple of troubleshooting tips that can help determine if you need a refrigerator filter replacement: 

If your ice maker isn’t producing enough or any ice, it may be due to an incorrectly installed water filter. Check the manufacturer’s guide to ensure the filter is installed correctly.

If you notice an unusual smell or taste in the water and ice coming from your refrigerator, it may be time to replace the filter. Typically, these filters are designed to remove chlorine, so if your water tastes like chlorine, it might indicate that the filter is no longer working effectively in removing it.
