    This water filter fits to a plastic tube from my water supply to the water/ice dispenser on my American style fridge/ freezer. It tucks away under my kitchen units and is really easy to fit and exchange, requiring no tools. It works very well and my tap supplied water is always clean and refreshing. The filter needs replacing every 6-8 months and it's price has dropped every year for the past 5 years. If you have an LG product requiring a filter, go for this!! I can fully recommend it.

    Yes. You will usually be advised to run water through the dispenser until this clears completely.

I seem to have had another filter fitted to my lg fridge. Can I cut the pipes to replace it/

    Most external water filters either have ends that screw off or push fit connections that have a collar to push toward the filter body that will release the pipe when pressed. If you have plenty of pipe available it is possible to cut the pipe with strong scissors if required.

  • I 'cut off' the existing cartridge. The new cartridge comes with screw fit attachments. Put the nuts on the pipework first, heat the ends of the pipe in hot water. Push the warmed ends on to the cone shaped ends of the cartridge, tighten up the nuts. Job done. Always check that the flow arrow is in the right direction. By KFR1 - East Midlands - 26 May 2010

    Unfortunately we don't seem to have a filter kit for the model of LG fridge you've mentioned. Apologies, we will endeavour to stock it in the future.
