    I purchased a Frigidaire 22.2 cu. ft. side by side refrigerator from Best Buy. I have no real complaint with Best Buy or the refrigerator. My issue is with the Frigidaire Parts Department. I called them to obtain the correct part # for the water filter as the "time to order" light was on. The woman in the Parts Department gave me the part #. I ordered the water filter from Best Buy. When it arrived I followed the instructions: remove and dispose of old water filter, install new water filter. After the old water filter was thrown away, I attempted to install the new one and it did not fit. I called the Frigidaire Parts Department and spoke with Ashley. I explained what had happened and asked that they comp me a water filter being that they gave me the wrong part # to begin with. Ashley explained to me that because I did not buy it from them they cannot comp me the item. As well, as it is a "special order" item it will not be available for 10-14 days. This I found strange, because after I got the correct part # (hopefully) from Ashley, I ordered it from Amazon for next day delivery. HORRIBLE Customer Service.

      I hate to hear about your purchase experience, JMarie. However, I hope that the filter is the correct one for your refrigerator. -Courtney Frigidaire

    Excellent Water Filter

    This is the second time we bought this fridge filter from Best Buy and have been pleased with its quality. The water tastes fresh and clean. Mind you, we have tried other replacement brands before and they worked well, but only after a couple of weeks. Then the water suddenly tastes bad. You save on your initial purchase, but actually end up spending more because the replacement filters don't last as long as they're advertised (i.e. 6 months). The first Frigidaire Pure Source water filter we used lasted us around 6-7 months. The taste of the water didn't change but the flow of the water became weaker as time went on. It just meant that the filter really needed to be replaced. It's recommended to be replaced every 6 months anyway. Next time you think about buying replacement brands, don't. Just order it from Best Buy. Rest assured, you get the quality you are promised from buying original filters.

    Clean, Good Tasting Water

    This is the second time we purchased this water filter. Initially, we tried saving money by buying the generic brand. That proved to be a mistake. Even though the cost was only 1/3 the price of this Frigidaire water filter, it only lasted us a couple of weeks before the water started tasting bad. We finally decided to buy this product from the Best Buy website. Typically, filters last about 6 months, but this one didn't need to be replaced until about 7 months and the water tasted "fresh" all throughout. We definitely got our money's worth for a family of 4. I won't ever buy generic filters again! Frigidaire PureSource is the only water filter for my family.

    Easy to replace water filter for the refrigerator

    Believe the fridge when it says order filter because it took about a week to get. Then I had to go pick it up in store. It was really easy to replace. It bothered me throwing it in the trash and wish they could be recycled by the stores instead. The quality of the water when it said it was time to order a replacement tasted very different than the fresher filter. I think It needed to be replaced a little sooner. I will probably go by that next time. They are expensive but last longer than the filters from the old fridge I had. Also, to replace it you have to push it in and then it pops out like a spring loaded gizmo. It said to look in the original paperwork for your fridge purchase for directions but many people may not have it any more. Luckily I did. Don't pull on it. It won't come out.

    But..... My feeling is that this filter replacement is triggered by a internal calendar, not the actual need for improving the water quality. If so, It's a misleading thing to say filter quality is poor. A consumer should be able to rely on warnings. If it were a fuel filter in a car; for example, would it be " reasonable " to expect that a blinking light or audible alarm meant that you are in danger or some part of the fuel system is faulting? Wouldn't it then be frustrating to go to a mechanic to be told," there is probably nothing wrong with the filter, it just is programmed to demand replacement before it will actually resume giving you peace of mind that it is working? " The alarm should read," please go to Best Buy and give them 50 bucks for no god reason."

    My biggest complaint about these filters is that they don't last that hold 200 galons that they are supposed to... sure timing wise my refrigerator allows me to use it 5 to 6 months but after about six weeks the water volume drops dramatically it takes about 5 minutes to fill up a single glass of water... so the reality is I'm replacing these filters every two months at fifty bucks a pop that equates out to nearly $300 a year. totally not worth it. I actually wish I could take my refrigerator back because it uses these dumb filters! Definitely do not recommend frigedaire refrigerators that use these filters

    When you buy a filter like this you have a filter that makes your water taste better and filters out harmful polutants . I used to buy bottled water and sometimes use those cannister filters. It’s so much easier to have this filter installed right into your refrigerator. Water is essential to your health. For less than $100 you have a year supply of the healthiest thing you can do for yourself. I’m not afraid to drink the water anymore and I drink lots of it as everyone should. This filter is a small and great investment !

    This product is just amazing. You go to the fridge for water it takes a week to fill your little sippy cup. You notice filter light on the water dispenser turned red, Oh no what do I do? Well just get one of these babies push on the old one it pops out this one pops in, reset the light and boom you have clean water flowing so fast you're constantly overflowing your favorite super jumbo water vessel all over the floor. Hand-eye coordination returns once you are properly hydrated and in 6mo you get to do it all over again. Just remember if you don't have a working water filter, you are a water filter.

    1st time home owner and 1st time having a fridge with a water/ice dispenser. My Frigidaire has a replacement light for the water filter, once initially ON I went to my local Best Buy for a replacement. In Stock, equally priced from what I found online, and easily replaced. The improved taste & quality of my dispensed water & ice was AMAZING!! Great Product!!

    The last FrigidAire fridge filter I had purchased from Amazon had appeared to differ slightly from the original packaging of the filter that came when I bought the fridge. The Amazon filter did not last nearly the 6 months it was designed to which made me doubt if it was an actual FrigidAire filter or a counterfeit. Decided to pick one up from a reputable store this time instead. Well worth it.

    Filter works well, gives us good ice and water flavor. I think it's an expensive item to be replaced every 3 to 4 months. This will add 120.00 per year to the operating cost of your refrigerator. I replace my filter every 6 months and this seems sufficient. I know when it's getting near the end of its lifespan when water flow becomes restricted. We are a family of four and both our children play sports, so we use our ice maker and water dispenser frequently.

    Easy push in - pop out replacement

    Easy push in - pop out replacement. This filter does a good job of filtering our water for about 3 months. It does take about 4 minutes to purge the air and get clean water after the new filter is installed. I use this purged water for our house plants. It does start to slow down the water flow just before the fridge light comes on for the order reminder. I use the Best Buy subscription service and get timely replacements at a better price.

    The filter for my refrigerator cracked, so I needed a new one. You did not have the size that was in mine, but you did have the larger capacity size. I checked prices online and found that the larger size was a much better bargain. Easy to install and works great. Pleased with the purchase. And I love that I could order it online, and then head right to the store and pick it up.

    We replaced our broken fridge this year and the new unit came with this type of water filter. After 6 months, it was time to replace the filter. Unlike our old fridge's filter which was installed at the bottom and needed a good twist to remove, the new filter goes into the upper most shelf. Removing the filter only required a gentle push to release it. Installing the new filter is just as easy. The water dispensed tastes great with no indications of any types of chemical treatment.

    DELIVERED TO MY HOUSE FOR LESS MONEY

    I am not sure why all these refrigerator filters cost so much, but they do! Regardless where you buy them, the cost is the same, but they are a necessary evil. Best Buy had the best price I could fine and they delivered free to my house. If you want the best tasting water and ice you need to replace the filter as required. It does make all the difference. Best Buy does put these on sale occasionally and when they do, take advantage of it as well as the delivery.

    We purchased a new home and the Fridge showed that the filter needed to be replaced. I checked it out on the web and found that Best Buy had it. It is a bit expensive, but was impressed how easy it was to install. Just push the old one and it came out. Put the new one and it popped in place. I remember other fridges how you had to pull it out and unscrew the filter after turning the water off. WE just opened the door and installed it quickly and reset the meter.

    This water filter is the only kind that works with our fridge, so we don't have much choice in the matter. That being said, we are content with the taste and clarity of the water. The sensor seems to be on a timer and we're not sure if it is measuring water consumed or just time passing. I think you can also reset the sensor without actually changing the filter, so that is disappointing. Maybe the filter is fine and our fridge just has its shortcomings.

    Glad this was in stock, Ordered online, had it delivered and ready for when I needed it. Tip: Wait until your fridge tells you that it's time IN RED to change the filter - you can usually get a little longer on the filter, and it won't hurt you. Also, when you first put the filter in, which just easily snaps into place, make sure you run a few pitchers full of water through before drinking the water, unless you want to drink soapy-tasting water :D

    After ordering this specific filter on Amazon and getting a fake instead, I went to Best Buy for the real deal. This filter works wonderfully and the water tastes and looks clean and fresh. I'd definitely recommend buying from a reputable store instead of trying to save a buck. PS - Best Buy will honor sale prices from other stores!
