Feel confident that the water in your home is safe and pure with the help of a 241968503 refrigerator water filter.
Function of the 241968503 water filter
A properly maintained 241968503 refrigerator water filter is capable of keeping a wide variety of contaminants out of a home’s drinking water. These contaminants include dirt, sand, sediment, metals such as lead and copper, and traces of herbicide and pesticide. All of these substances detract from water purity and can potentially cause health problems in those who drink contaminated water.
The 241968503 filter functions by using activated carbon to remove contaminants from water. It is built into the refrigerator/freezer design so that it filters water that enters both the water dispenser and the ice maker of the unit.
Process for installing the 241968503 water filter
When you’re evaluating refrigerator filters, you should pay attention to how complicated the installation process is. An overly complicated installation could leave you procrastinating about changing your filter. If you let your filter go too long before changing it, your water will lose some of its purity and your old filter could become so clogged with particles that it causes damage to your refrigerator/freezer.
When the 241968503 filter is changed, it’s important to turn off the ice maker by flipping off the power switch. This will prevent unfiltered water from being used in ice production while you are changing your filter.
After you’ve turned off the ice maker, you’ll need to remove the old filter. Locate the filter release button and press it. When you do so, you’ll be able to pull out your old filter. Discard your old filter.
Replace your old filter with the new filter. You can snap the new filter in place. You’ll know that it has been properly installed when you hear a double click sound.
After you’ve pushed the new filter into place, you’ll want to turn on your ice maker again so that your unit begins functioning and producing ice.
The last thing you need to do is indicate on your change water indicator that you have just changed your filter. This indicator will show you when you need to replace the filter. Instructions showing how you change the water indicator can be found in the owners manual that came along with your refrigerator/freezer unit.
How often the 241968503 / WF2CB water filter needs to be replaced
Typically, this type of filter will need to be replaced once every six month. However, the frequency with which the filter needs to be replaced depends on the amount of use that the unit’s water dispenser and ice maker are subjected to.
