When replacing a new filter, flush about 2 gallons of water through the filter before drinking the water. This will eliminate any carbon particles leftover from the manufacturing process.
Electrolux Refrigerator Water Filters
Electrolux is a Swedish appliance maker founded back in 1919. Headquartered in Stockholm, Electrolux is the second largest manufacturer of home appliances in the world, according to http://group.electrolux.com/en.
From initially selling Lux-branded vacuum cleaners, the Electrolux brand has expanded to a whole lineup of home and major appliances that are sold to millions of customers around the world. The Electrolux family of brands now includes Frigidaire.
With their expansion into major appliances, Electrolux also manufactures a variety of accessories like refrigerator water filters. Electrolux Pure Advantage Ice and Water Filtration System (EWF01) can be used to replace cartridges from all Electrolux refrigerators except for Electrolux ICON side-by-side models. If you have this particular refrigeration system, you will need the EWF2CBPA filter.
Electrolux fridge filter units should be replaced every six to nine months, or every 400 gallons, whichever comes first. It's important to replace your Electrolux filter regularly in order to keep your fridge operating efficiently.
