Customer Questions & Answers for
samsung HAFCU1 Water Filter

Use this replacement filter with your Samsung refrigerator to provide clean, fresh-tasting water and ice from your side-by-side or French door refrigerator. For best results, replace your Samsung filter every 6 months. Fresh Filtered Water and Ice at Your Fingertips This refrigerator water filter is used in select Samsung French door and side-by-side refrigerators with filter access inside the refrigerator. While retaining beneficial fluoride, this NSF® Certified refrigerator water filter reduces cysts, chlorine taste and odor, particulates (Class I), lead and mercury. Replace your Samsung Refrigerator water filter every 6 months to ensure clean, safe drinking water. For added convenience, all Samsung refrigerators with an external dispenser have an indicator light on the display that reminds you when it’s time to replace your water filter. Certified Performance Samsung water filters are tested and certified by NSF® International, a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to public health, safety and environmental protection. This certification is widely recognized around the world as a guarantee of safety and is your assurance that this filter has been tested by one of the most respected independent certification companies in existence today. Reduction of Contaminants Samsung water filters use only a high-grade carbon block which removes over 99% of the potentially harmful contaminants that may be present in your water: • Chlorine Taste & Odor: Chlorine is used widely to treat water but may add a particular taste and odor to the water • Heavy Metals & Chemicals: Lead, asbestos, benzene, mercury and carbofuran; these common industrial contaminants with high toxicities can infiltrate the water source and be potentially harmful to your health • Microbial Cysts: Parasites such as cryptosporidium are commonly found in lakes and rivers. They have a high resistance over disinfectants such as chlorine and thus may be present even in treated water Follow the below guidelines for when to change your Samsung water filter: 6 Months: Recommended for households with municipal water 3-6 Months: Changing the filter more often is recommended for households using well water Now: If water has visible particulates or an odor, you notice a decrease in water flow, or the filter indicator light is red (note: about 1 month before the filter needs to be changed, the indicator will first turn orange) How to reset the refrigerator water filter indicator on the external display (after replacing the filter): Simultaneously press the Ice Type and Child Lock buttons for 3 seconds.

Questions & Answers for samsung HAFCU1 Water Filter

Question

New filter not working properly?

Our water system is very good, so I decided to remove the filter. We liked the added flow, so we left it like that for a while. It wasn't long before the water began to taste as if it were sitting in a glass for a long time. Kinda skunky-mildew-ish is the best I can describe it.
I figured all the lines being plastic made it this way, so we put a new filter in. However, this taste remains after months with the new filter in place. We have to run out about 4 large glasses of water before it tastes fresh. What might be the issue?
Thanks!

I'm sorry to hear you're having this issue. Samsung does not recommend using the refrigerator's water and ice features without either an internal or external filtration system because mineral deposits or debris could potentially damage the water lines. While it isn't unusual for there to be some residual taste after installing a new filter, it should dissipate over time. Dispensing 5-6 gallons of water and dumping the first few batches of ice should help to flush the system. However, if the issue persists, I would suggest contacting Samsung for assistance determining whether the prolonged exposure to unfiltered water may have damaged the lines.

For further assistance, please submit an online service request through the link below, or call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to assist you.

Most models of Samsung refrigerators require a manual reset to change the color of the light from red to the original blue. Please refer to your refrigerator's user manual for the appropriate instructions, or submit a new question referencing your model number and I'd be happy to help.

I'm sorry to hear your water tastes funny. It isn't unusual for there to be some residual taste in the water lines when the refrigerator is first installed or the filter cartridge is replaced. Samsung recommends dispensing as much as 5-6 gallons of water and dumping the first few batches of ice to help flush the lines. This taste should dissipate over time.

Thanks for the question. Some Samsung refrigerators that use this type of filter do have bypass caps available, though it is often not necessary. You can try removing the filter without inserting a cap. If you find that you would prefer to have one, please visit SamsungParts.com for information and availability.

It's worth noting that it's important to use a filtration system to help prevent mineral deposits or debris from damaging your refrigerator's water lines. If you stop using the external system, please reinstall the filter in your refrigerator.

Thanks for the question. It's fine to remove the filter cartridge from your RFG297AARS as long as you have an external filtration system in place, and it isn't necessary to insert a bypass cap.
