These filters fit in the Whirlpool, KitchenAid and Jenn-Air refrigerators and replace the 4396701 filter. They have a capacity of 200 gallons and flow rate ranging from a half gallon to a full gallon per minute. The pressure range is 30 to 120 PSI and a temperature range of 33 to 100 degrees. They help reduce chlorine taste and odor and remove contaminants that can make you and your family sickó like lead, mercury and benzenes. Fridge filters generally last between three and six months, depending on if you are using well water or city water.
Changing your filter every six months will ensure you are getting fresh clean water every time you use the dispenser. Installing a new filter is easy and it can be done in just a few minutes, which is perfect for our busy lives. Turn the old filter clockwise and pull until it comes out. Save the old cartridge cap to put on the new filter, and slide the filter into place. Rotate a quarter turn until it is in place. Flush with about two gallons of water and you are ready to use your new filter. A three-pack will last you about 18 months or so.
