There are several benefits for you and your family in using a fridge filter from discount fridge filters. The FC100 refrigerator filter, also known as the Frigidaire WF2CB filter, removes harmful contaminants from your water supply while also storing cold water internally for use on demand. The carbon in this filter filters out the bad, but keeps the minerals that are in household water which are healthy for you. Replacing your filter allows you to have clean, healthy and clear with a refreshing water and ice from your fridge.
How do the FC100 refrigerator filters work? It is a simple concept, but has been developed to work better than other water filters. The filter contains activated carbon to remove undesirable items from your water. Activated carbon has a porous surface to allow it to trap more particles inside the surface and keep them from entering your refrigerator through both the water line to the water dispenser and the water line to your icemaker.
Your household water enters your refrigerator from the water line in the rear of your refrigerator. It then is pushed into the rear of the filter, travels through the filter as clean and pure water and through the water lines for sparkling, clear drinking water and ice cubes. The activated carbon removes harmful substances such as cysts, asbestos, lead, mold, bacteria and chlorine. These items are trapped inside of the carbon in the filter in a seamless process so you only have to replace the water filter and sit back while you and your family enjoy healthy, clear and refreshing water at all times.
Replace your FC100 / WF2CB Filter every 6 months:
The FC100 discount fridge filters clean your water by filtering out impurities, however they do need replacing about every six months. At this time, the carbon begins to break down inside the filter and it does not trap all the particles as it should. You can mark your calendar every six months to remind you when to replace your refrigerator water filter or monitor your filter reminder light that is displayed in your refrigerator every time you open the refrigerator door. When your filter reminder light turns from green to yellow, you should order a new discount fridge filter. When the lights turns from yellow to red it is time to replace your filter and reset the light.
Installing Your FC100 / WF2CB Filter:
It is a simple and quick process to change your water filter and replace it with a new one. First, locate your water filter. It may be in the refrigerator compartment or behind the kick plate in the bottom grille of your refrigerator. Each area replaces slightly differently than the other.

2. Grasp the filter and push it inward while to release it from the housing.
3. Pull the filter straight out, insert a new filter and press it inward until it clicks and locks into place.

*Tip: Always remember to flush the new water filter and your water system by activating the water dispenser to expel at least two gallons of water through the new filter.
