Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

This is a Water Filter BYPASS not a Water Filter.

agentexeider 9/20/2020

This review is more as a PSA and not a critique of Frigidaire. You need to understand the difference between a Water Filter and Water Filter Bypass. Both look exactly the same, in face the bypass uses the same body as the filter to fit into the fridge, but there is NO FILTER CARBON inside the bypass!! THIS IS NOT A FILTER.This means that if you don't have some other kind of filter system, for example a whole house filter or kitchen water filtration, this means the bypass will run basically pure tap water into your fridge, which means your ice and your water will be tap water.The reason bypasses exist is because of the gaining popularity of whole house filtration systems, in fact builders of new homes often offer this, either adding it into the price of your home or a third party finance options, etc. Point is, the water running through the house is already filtered, sometimes twice depending on the system and filtering again inside the fridge is redundant, and replaceing filters becomes pointless. Hence the bypass was invented to allow fridge water/ice systems to keep working without wasting a filter.So if you DON'T have a whole house filtration or kitchen water filtration system like that, then you shouldnt replace your filter with this part, this is not a filter and thus your water will change from pure to "tasting bad" or off. You need actual water filters.Hope this helps clear the confusion.
