Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best filter I have used a LG original LG Filter (LT500P/5231JA2002A) produced by Cuno Water Group on LG LSC26905TT Refrigerator since June 16, 2012. And in July 2014, my refrigerator did not make ice, but water tasted ok. I realized that I have not changed filter for two years that make filter clogged and pressure was low that leading to no ice produced. Once I replaced filter, it recovered to produce ice. That means my filter does worked well for full two years. What a high performance! I replaced old filter with other maker produced filter but it contained many residues and white particles. I will buy original LG made filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keith's Water Filter Refill is Refreshing The water filter I purchased for our fridge works very well. The water taste very good and appears very clean. It is nice to know that the particles that sometimes escape in regular water filtration process are captured by the water filter in our refrigerator. I am very pleased with our purchase, and the purchase process was extremely easy. When we bought the fridge, I set up an on-line account (including my billing address, shipping address, email, and credit card information) and registered the fridge. Because I did this, I received an email from LG six months from when I purchased the fridge saying it was time to replace the filter. Not only did the email contain all of the product information, there was also a button to click (Buy Your Filter Now) that took me right to the LG website buying page, where I could add the filter to my cart. There was no charge for shipping the filter, as long as I chose ground and not overnight shipping. I researched other places to buy the filter, but when I factored in no shipping charge, LG was overall the cheapest and easiest in terms of ordering. I logged into my account, added the product to my cart, and checked out using the addresses and credit card info on file. I received the filter in 2 days from when I ordered it. It was exactly what I ordered, and it was extremely easy to remove the old filter and replace it with the new one. In another 6 months, I will receive a new email and go through the same process. I also discovered that this filter can be used in other models of LG refrigerators so that is very good engineering on the part of LG to use the same filter in multiple models. Overall, this was a good purchase from start to finish. I would recommend this product to other customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product for a low price I absolutely love my refrigerator and this is a very good product that helps eliminate the "extra" container so my family can have access to good drinking water. Easy to install also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick to install and great features Water always tastes great. The new filter was so simple to install, and I truly appreciate the date sticker that will help me remember when it's time for the new one!

Sulpher taste in water from refrigerator.

I suppose it would be easy to replace the filter, but obviously my email wasn't read. My refrigerator is only 2 months old and of course a new filter was installed when it was delivered. So, could the filter be faulty? Unfortunately, I cannot drink the water out of the refrigerator and am extremely disappointed because the filtered water was the primary reason for purchasing the refrigerator
Asked by: RosemaryB
Hello RosemaryB. Thank you for your inquiry, we apologize if we missed an earlier email from you. The LG LT-500P Refrigerator Water Filter is a carbon block filter. This refrigerator water filter reduces chlorine, tastes and odors from your water. Is there also a rotten egg smell that emanates from your water? There are 2 forms of sulfur that are common in drinking water supplies, sulfates and hydrogen sulfide which has that common rotten egg smell. Neither of these usually create a health risk and with proper testing and treatment will prevent them from being a nuisance. Sulfur-reducing bacteria, which use sulfur as an energy source, are usually the primary producers of large quantities of hydrogen sulfide in drinking water. It isn't likely that the water filter is faulty. Sulfate minerals can cause scale buildup in water pipes similar to other minerals and may be associated with a bitter taste in water...^IFV

Sulpher taste in water

Just purchased LG refrigerator 2 months ago and am very disappointed because water dispensed from the refrigerator does not eliminate the sulpher taste. Our last LG refrigerator totally eliminated the taste but this one does not. The filter on this refrigerator is very different from our last one, could that be the problem?
Asked by: RosemaryBuyck
We appreciate your interest in this refrigerator and its accessories. The filter mentioned is designed to reduce Lead, Mercury, Asbestos, Benzene, Iron, Particulates, and to reduce odors and chlorine taste.

Does the LSC27291ST use a filter and if so, which one?

This is a refrigerator that we have recently acquired. Also, can I get a product manual for this refrigerator?
Asked by: Francine
I apologize, but the LSC27291ST is not a recognized model number for a refrigerator in the United States. As such, it will not be possible to provide the information for which you are searching.

Does this filter (part #5231JA2002A) eliminate fluoride?

Does this filter eliminate fluoride from our water?
Asked by: Karenwmadden
I apologize, but no; this filter is designed for the removal of nominal particulate Class I particles and chlorine taste and odor. It does not appear to have been designed for the filtration of fluoride.
