How to Replace the Water Filter in Your Refrigerator

A refrigerator water filter plays a significant role in keeping our water healthy to drink. That’s because a premium water filter can eliminate the harmful contaminants from the water, such as chlorine, cysts, lead, mercury, etc. But the lifespan of water filters is limited, and they need to be replaced every six months. To help people change the water filter correctly and quickly, the below article will show how to replace a water filter step by step.

Step One

Buy a new filter, according to the model number and part number, which are usually printed on the filter. You can also find them in the refrigerator manual, or search on the internet.

 

Step Two

Release the old water filter from your refrigerator. Usually, the water filter is at the

base of your fridge, where there is a knob or button. You can half-turn the knob

counterclockwise or press the button to pull the old filter out.

Step Three

Unscrew the cap at the end of the old filter and put it onto the new one. For a

quarter-turn filter model, just slide it onto the new filter. For the push-button model, align

the cap and filter, and twist the cap until it snaps into place.

 

Step Four

Remove the protective cap of the new water filter and begin the installation. For the

quarter-turn cap, keep the cap in the vertical position, and then slide the filter into the filter

hole. For the push-button cap, insert the filter until the button pops up. (The right direction

is as follows.)

   

Step Five

Flush three or more gallons of water through your water dispenser to avoid airlock and

remove impurities in your water filter.

Step Six

Reset the indicator light, so that you’ll know when to replace the water filter. If your

refrigerator doesn’t come with such an indicator, you can also write down the date on a

paper and stick it on the fridge.
