    Extremely difficult to stop door lights

    The filter was easy to put in however I had a difficult time to stop the flashing lights on the door panel. The instructions in the manual were not clear on how to do this. I called Best Buy and I was told to call LG. I did this and was on the phone over 90 minutes to resolve this.The person helping me was not very good in explaining how to fix this problem. Also that person was out of the USA overseas and said I could not get any help for this problem from anyone in the United States.

    What in the world did people do before you had replaceable air filters? What would happen to the air in your refrigerator if it was not replaced every six months? I know if I put diced or sliced onions inside they still smell up the refrigerator. I replace the filter just in case it really does something and to put an end to the replace now light that goes on each time the door opens to remind you that it needs replacement, Just to play devil's advocate where does all this bad air come from?

    Installation Difficult

    I have not been able to remove old/original filter, very difficult to turn as directions describe. LG referred me to a service provider under the warranty but one provider refused to provide the service because LG is slow to pay and the second service provider did not return my phone calls. I believe the air filter is good and useful. I can tell the difference of having a functioning filter after it stopped working, but the high cost of replacement (every 6 or 7 months) is prohibitive for me.

    1st Fridge w/Air Filter

    I'm not sure how effective this really is. I replaced it twice at this point, but i could only tell j needed a new one because the indicator on my fridge said i needed to change it out. I've never owned a refrigerator that used an air filter, and I can't tell that having one on my new LG fridge is actually necessary. I can't say the interior of my fridge smells any better than my previous non-air filtered fridge. But the flashing indicator bothers me, so I'll co tinue to replace it.

    Expensive Item Given its Simplicity

    We replaced our LG fridge air filter after 6 months when the warning/reminder light came on. Although we did not notice any issues with air quality inside the fridge, we followed the recommendation to replace the filter. The filter seems to have a high price considering how simple its materials and construction are, but that price point is likely determined by LG rather than Best Buy. Aside from the price, we have zero complaints about this product.

    Better than baking soda!

    This little filter does a great job of freshening up the air in refrigerator. Much better than the old school box of baking soda. Couldn't figure out how to install the filter until I read the instructions . . . Pretty easy after that. It is expensive but does last for quite a long time. We've had our refrigerator over a year and this is the first time I've replaced the air filter while I've had to replace the water filter atleast twice.

    The air filter is a necessity for our refrigerator. It is supposed to be replaced every six months, as is the water filter. While I'm glad to have the cleaner air, the cost of these filters is a bit much. The air filter is $25 every six months, the water filter is $50 every six months. That's $150 per year for these filters. Had I known this, I would have probably opted for another refrigerator.

    Original Filter Seems to Work Well

    Decided to buy the original filter from the manufacturer after reading mixed reviews of the generic replacements available from other retailers. It's working well so far and I have not noticed any odors in my fridge. It came sealed and was packaged well. I wish it was cheaper, considering that it's small and made of widely available materials.

    Routine Maintenance Keeps Things Going

    I was happy that Best Buy had these in stock for me, Home Depot (where I bought the fridge) and Lowe's did not which made it frustrating. So glad I didn't have to order online and then pay additional for shipping. It does what it's supposed and keeps my new fridge working properly and the inside fresh! Simple routine maintenance will keep your things working for a long time.

    Was a little skeptical about having to purchase these filters every six months until discussing it further with the salesman that sold the refrigerator to me. I understand its in place of having to purchase a box of baking soda to keep the air inside fresh. A box of soda is cheaper but takes up shelf space so I guess its worth it for that reason alone.

    My fridge has no odors

    It's hard to really know if this is working, but I've had no evidence to suggest it's not. Packaged well, though BB shipped it in an envelope and the box got a little crushed. Easy to install. Seems a bit overpriced, but it's worth it to me to pay for the genuine article.

    Cost of Owning Modern Refrigerator

    Although I love my 1 1/2 year old LG refrigerator, the price to replace accessories can be cost prohibitive. The air filters do perform the function of removing food odors that could affect the flavor of other foods being stored. Between the price of replacing air and water filters any energy savings are probably greatly reduced.

    Good filter, but filter cover hard to remove

    Filter works fine, but was hard to install. The cover of the filter is very difficult to remove. Had to use a lot of force to turn it. Called Best Buy Store and spoke to a staff person. She also tried on one of the floor models and had the same problem. Seems to be a fault of the refrigerator model.

    Helps in capturing dust particles. Clean refridge

    Just like any air filter. Dust particles are captured in this filter to avoid spoiling and contamination of food. This filter does it job. Will only use recommended products to maintain effective use and consistency of refrigerator. It is easy to replace and install. Like any filter, replace it at recommended intervals.

    Well, it's not very easy reviewing something that is sort of in the background. It seemed a bit expensive, but it also seems to be working. And there was no problem putting it in. I like LG products, including my LG refrigerator. I didn't even know that I needed to replace the filter until I read the LG monthly newletter.

    Been using this product for a couple of years as this is what fits in my LG fridge. By and large, it is effective in controlling overwhelming food odors. However, it is not perfect. Some odors still permeate and I have to use baking soda for augmentation.

    I was at first skeptical as to whether this filter would work.It does remove the odors from food in your refrigerator.I have always put a box of baking soda in the refrigerator which also works, but sometimes that would get spilled inside when I was reaching for something else. This takes care of that problem.

    I haven't been able to find the fresh air filter for my LG refrigerator (purchased from Best Buy) for over a YEAR. But then I thought, 'Why haven't I looked for one there'? Found it - bought it. Expensive, but they last a long time. SO WORTH IT!

    Expensive, and I Don't Know If I Need It

    This was surprisingly expensive and I really don't know whether the air filter in the refrigerator is a necessity (never needed one with my previous 10+ fridges) or a gimmick to generate more profits for LG. When the "replace me" signal goes off in a few months, I likely will not replace it to see what happens.
