Using and Installing the Air Filter

How to Use and Install the Air Filter in Full-Size Refrigerators

There are two types of air filter installations. Each one requires different steps, so identify the air filter type in your full-size refrigerator before getting started.

Air filters are available at some retailers, including Amazon.

 

Type 1

NOTE: The air filter is located behind the blue LED-lighted vent cover, located on the rear wall near the middle of the refrigerator.

  1. Remove the air filter from its packaging.
  2. Pull out plastic cover over the vented cover.  We suggest removing the cover by lifting up one side of the cover, then the other. 
  3. Snap the filter into place.

 

 

Type 2

Install the air filter behind the vented door, located on the rear wall near the top of the refrigerator compartment.

  1. Remove the air filter from its packaging.
  2. Lift open the vented door.
  3. Snap the filter into place.
