When a new refrigerator filter is installed, there may be some sputtering and spitting of water while air is forced out of the filter media. This is normal and will stop after the carbon media becomes saturated with water.
Jenn-Air Refrigerator Water Filters
Jenn-Air came to be owned by Whirlpool through the company's acquisition of Maytag around 2007. Founded in Indianapolis, Indiana by Louis Jenn, Jenn-Air originally focused mainly on the manufacturing and marketing of industrial-grade fans for both commercial and industrial use. The incorporation of one of the fans to a cook-top range led to the invention of a self-ventilated downdraft range that would solidify Jenn-Air's reputation as a leader in innovation and technology, according to www.jennair.com.
Jenn-Air distributes accessories for its major appliances. They also distribute refrigerator water filters to improve the quality of drinking and cooking water in consumers' homes. These filters will be effective not only improving the taste and quality of your drinking water, but will also reduce contaminants. These NSF certified filters will be able to remove chlorine taste and odor, cysts and reduce water turbidity, all while retaining beneficial fluoride. Health-related impurities like Atrazine, benzene, asbestos, toxaphene, carbofuran, and mercury are also reduced through a Jenn-Air filter, although not all of these contaminants may be present in your water source.
Jenn-Air recommends replacing refrigerator water filters every six months or so to ensure healthy drinking and cooking water. Depending on your water filter capacity, the indicator inside your refrigerator should alert you when the water filter needs changing. If your water starts to display an increase in opacity and has started to smell, replace the refrigerator water filter immediately.
