But there will only be one filter that is suitable for your Frigidaire refrigerator. The one you need depends on the model of fridge you have.

There are a few ways that you can locate the right type of filter for your fridge. These include:

  1. Reading the owner’s manual. The owner’s manual should tell you what type of filter you will need to use for your fridge brand.
  2. Searching online. Frigidaire has a tool that will allow you to search for the type of refrigerator filter you need for the perfect replacement filter. To use this tool, though, you will need to know the model of your fridge. This can be found on the top wall on the left-hand side of the inside of your fridge.
  3. Using an existing filter. An existing filter should have the part number printed on it. You can use this to search for a filter that matches these specifications. The water filter can be found in the upper-right-hand corner of your fridge. In some models, it might be found in the base of the fridge.

If none of these steps work, there is another option that you can try. You can visit your local fridge store. If you take your filter with you, they should be able to identify it. Sometimes, they might even be able to order it for you.

Types of Frigidaire Filters You Can Buy

Once you know what type of filter you require, you will need to order your new one. The good news is that there is plenty of options available. Generally, filters can be divided into a few types, these are:

  • Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). This means that you will be purchasing a filter that has been made by Frigidaire.
  • Aftermarket filter. This has been made by a third-party manufacturer, but it will be compatible with your fridge.

There are a few important distinctions between OEM and aftermarket products. First, OEM options tend to be more expensive. Sometimes, they can be 60 percent more expensive than an aftermarket version.

But they have been extensively tested, so you can be assured that they will filter the water properly. As a result, they are often designed to meet strict industry standards. In general, an OEM refrigerator water filter will provide your family safe filtered water.

However, many aftermarket filters are also built to a high standard. As a result, they will often be able to provide a similar level of filtration. If you can find a quality manufacturer, you might be able to get a great filter at a discounted price. The key is to make sure that you are reading through the reviews before you buy an aftermarket filter. This ensures that you will be buying a high-quality filter. Regardless of whether you purchase an OEM or aftermarket refrigerator filter, you want filtered water that is free of an harmful contaminants.

The following table summarizes the current Frigidaire water filter models as well as the OEM and aftermarket filter prices.

Where to Buy a Replacement Filter for Your Frigidaire Refrigerator?

There are a few places where you can purchase a replacement filter from. These are:

  • Frigidaire website. This resource will only stock OEM.
  • Local white goods store. If they sold you your fridge, they should stock replacement parts like refrigerator water filters.
  • Third-party retailer sites. Often, these stores will have a mix of OEM and aftermarket refrigerator water filters.

When you are searching for a replacement water filter, there are a few things that you should keep in mind. First, it’s important to think about the costs associated with the filter. Buying from the manufacturer and a white goods store will often be the most expensive. You might want to consider seeing if you can get a discount if you purchase the filters in bulk.

You should also do some research before turning to a third-party retailer. Look for some reviews to confirm that they are selling you trusted products.

I always want to be certain that the refrigerator filter is removing taste and harmful impurities so my family is getting clean, pure water.

What Makes Frigidaire Refrigerator Filters Special?

There are a few elements that help to set the OEM Frigidaire water filter apart from the competition. Some aftermarket versions will also match these qualifications. The benefits of a Frigidaire filter include:

NSF certification

Frigidaire refrigerator water filters are NSF certified. To receive this ranking, a fridge filter will need to go through an intense screening process. They will test the number of pollutants that are removed from the water, to ensure that the filter is effective and will provide adequate protection. Learn more about NSF certification.

Frigidaire refrigerator water filters have NSF certifications to reduce the concentration of the following contaminants:

  • Chlorine
  • Mercury
  • Lead
  • Pesticides
  • Herbicides
  • Pharmaceuticals

Three-step filtering process

Frigidaire filters use three different filters to purify your drinking water. These include:

  1. sediment screen
  2. particle filter
  3. activated carbon filter

The refrigerator water will be run through three screens, trapping pollutants at each level. This ensures that it will be able to trap the majority of chemicals. It can also trap chlorine, which is something that many other fridge filters will struggle to do.

Quality replacement filters

Frigidaire filters are known for being highly effective. They can trap up to 99.9 percent of chemicals and water pollutants. In the end, you’ll get exceptional water quality for up to six months or longer.

It’s important to remember that the refrigerator water filter will get fouled over time. Because of this, it’s important to make sure that you replace it frequently. It’s recommended that you put in a new filter every six months, depending on how often you are using the water dispenser in your fridge.

Final Thoughts

Finding the right refrigerator water filter can seem daunting at first. But there are numerous ways to whittle down the type of water filter you will require. All you need is some basic information about your fridge filter, like the model number or a previous filter. Armed with this knowledge, you will be able to find a filter that fits your Frigidaire refrigerator with a few keystrokes.
