I encounter a lot of problems with refrigerators not dispensing the proper amount of water, or not water. Many times the filter can be clogged. I see a lot of customers that choose to buy the off brand cheaper filters. This would seem to make financial sense, but I see quite a few more problems with the off brand filters than the name brand that the manufacturers recommend.
I see many of the cheaper ones that crack and leak.
Just last week, I had a customer whose off brand filter got stuck in the filter housing an could not be removed. We had to replace the filter housing and put a factory filter in. The repair was over $230. It wiped out any savings that she had before.
I dont believe the off brand filters filter as well or last as long.
Buy the name brand filters and you will prpbably have fewer headaches in the long run.
You can add a inline filter to the back of the fridge and this will make the interior filter last longer. Something like this filter assembly from Home Depot
