A few weeks ago our Amana refrigerator water filter status light went orange. Without looking at the manual I’m not sure if this light activates on amount of time or the actual remaining quality / performance of the filter. I do know it had been about 6 months since we had last replaced the PUR water filter. Like the last time – I purchased the filter online – not from the same website. I did make one error with this purchase. I didn’t buy a fast fill filter. On the label above you can see a star with information in regards to that. It states that refrigerators requiring fast fill may not perform at optimal levels with this filter.
I honestly had forgotten that I’d purchased a fast fill filter previously. I just used the 4396841 number code to look for a replacement. Up to this point I haven’t seen any negative effects using this filter with our Amana. In the future though I’ll remember to purchase the fast fill version.
