Did you know that the nominal size of your air filter is probably not the same as the actual size? Just like measurements on lumber, the actual size of an air filter is usually slightly smaller than the nominal size.
Maytag Refrigerator Water Filters
Headquartered in Newton, Iowa, Maytag is an American appliance company that serves both the residential and commercial markets.
The company started out as a producer of washing machines during the late 1800s. During World War II, Maytag manufactured components for special equipment, according to www.maytag.com. Today the company operates under the umbrella of Whirlpool and produces everything from major appliances to small kitchen products. They are perhaps best known for their major appliances, including a full line of washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, cooktops, ranges and dishwashers.
Maytag also distributes accessories for its major appliances. Among these accessories are refrigerator water filters that improve the quality of drinking and cooking water in consumers' homes. Both the UKF8001 and UKF7003 models are used in bottom-mount refrigerators with filter access on the inside of the refrigerator. It's relatively easy to remove and replace these water filters. Simply turn the filter to remove and replace. These models can be used in refrigerators manufactured by Amana, Jenn-air, Whirlpool and others.
Both the PuriClean II UKF8001 and UKF7003 models have NSF/ANSI ratings of 42 and 53. This means the filters will be effective not only in enhancing the taste and quality of your drinking water but will also reduce contaminants. These NSF certified filters will be able to remove chlorine levels and reduce water turbidity, while retaining fluoride. Health-related impurities like Toxaphene, Atrazine, Carbofuran, mercury and asbestos are also reduced through the filter.
Maytag recommends replacing fridge 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 to be changed. If your water starts to display an increase in opacity and has started to smell, replace the water filter immediately.
