Removing the fresh air filter in an LG refrigerator is a straightforward process. Here are the steps:
Before you begin:
- Make sure your refrigerator is unplugged or the power is turned off for safety.
- Wear gloves if you prefer to keep your hands clean.
- Locate the Fresh Air Filter: The fresh air filter is typically found in the upper left or right corner of the refrigerator’s fresh food compartment. It’s usually behind a cover or housing.
- Remove the Cover or Housing: Depending on your refrigerator model, you may need to press a tab, squeeze the sides, or gently pull to remove the cover or housing that conceals the filter.
- Identify the Fresh Air Filter: Once the cover is removed, you’ll see the fresh air filter. It’s a small rectangular or square-shaped cartridge.
- Release the Filter: Look for a latch, button, or tab that holds the filter in place. Press, push, or release it to disengage the filter.
- Pull Out the Filter: After releasing the filter, gently pull it straight out from its slot.
- Replace with a New Filter (Optional): If you’re replacing the old filter with a new one, simply insert the new filter in the same slot. Ensure it’s properly seated.
- Reattach the Cover or Housing: Place the cover or housing back in its original position and secure it in place. You should hear or feel a click when it locks.
- Plug In or Turn On the Refrigerator: Plug the refrigerator back in or turn on the power.
- Reset the Filter Indicator (if applicable): Some LG refrigerators have a filter replacement indicator. If you’ve replaced the filter, reset the indicator according to your refrigerator’s instructions.
- Check for Proper Function: Confirm that the fresh air filter is securely in place and that the refrigerator is operating correctly.
That’s it! You’ve successfully removed the fresh air filter from your LG refrigerator. If you’re replacing it with a new filter, be sure to use a genuine LG replacement filter for optimal performance. If you encounter any difficulties or have a unique refrigerator model, consult your refrigerator’s user manual for model-specific instructions and recommendations regarding the fresh air filter.
