How Often Should I Change my Water Filter in my Refrigerator?

Many refrigerators come with a handy-dandy sensor light when it’s time to replace your water filter, so how do I know when I should be changing my water filter? 

When the dispenser control panel’s water filter status light changes to “order,” this is indicative of needing to bite the bullet and order a filter. It’s almost due for a change. When the display says “Replace,” you guessed it, it’s time to replace. However, it’s always best to pay attention to the water flow from your dispenser. If the flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably, you may need to change your filter much sooner than anticipated. You should be replacing your water filter roughly every six months, which is dependent on your water quality and usage.

Here’s some troubleshooting tips with water filters that you may not have been aware of:

If your ice maker is not producing enough or any ice – your water filter may be installed incorrectly. Check your Use and Care Guide for proper installation instructions.

Your ice maker will not operate properly – Again, your water filter may not be installed properly or it may be clogged.

Ice and Water has a weird taste, odor or is gray – Did you just replace your water filter? It’s essential to flush the water filtration system prior to using.
