Wrong water filter
« on: November 22, 2015, 08:42:54 PM »
I was asked by my friend to go look at his frigidaire refrigerator cause he had taken model number to Lowes to buy one and the one he was given does not fit. I went and looked at it and the water housing is totally different than the one it calls for this fridge. Model number fphb2899pf1 filter number ultrawf . The water housing that is in there is a one inlet instead of two . I am going to go take the water cover out and see if it does have to water hoses going to it. This is wiered cause also this was a r2epio fridge and am wondering if some teck or wana be one changed it out. I will let you know what i found.If any one else has any input on this pls let me know thanks all

first time i went out there i just looked into the filter housing and the customers were very nice and i told them i was to do some research on it and when i got home i started thinking that why not take the filter water housing off and see if there were two hoses going to it. I called the lady and since when i was there she said she was going to in stall a dishwasher i thought i bet she can take the housing off. She did and reported back that there was a broken piece of the real fileter attached to it. She took it off and well to make the story short she inserted the one the fridge calls for and all is well and done.
