What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The one to buy This is the best 'replacement' water filter to get. There are many other knock-off water filters that don't seem to fit correctly. This one arrived quickly and works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water Filter Ordered the filter online due to work schdule. It arrived quickly and was pretty easy to install. I was afraid at first but the instructions were available everywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous refrigerator I bought this a month ago. It is gorgeous and very roomy. Love the two ice options in freezer and in door. Door water system gives plenty of room to fill teapot and water bottles. Keeps perfect temperature. Very good warranty on compressor--10 years! Also, water filter easy to install and can put on auto-order!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Refrigerator Filter I love my LG Refrigerator, but the filter not so much. It has to be replaced every 6 months. It is nice to know the water and ice cubes coming out of the refrigerator are filtered, but changing the filter is not fun. It is at the back of the refrigerator over the top shelf. It would be much easier to change if it were in the door or somewhat lower down. Also it is relatively large so takes up some space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from water tastes fresh Bought a generic brand, the water was poor in taste, logged on to LG and purchased this filter, will never change again even set it up on auto refill program! Trust LG use there products!

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.

Is there a replacement cartridge that meets ANSI 53 standards? If not, why not?

Asked by: RSL757
The LG 6 Month / 500 Gallon Capacity Replacement Refrigerator Water Filter (Part # 5231JA2002A), Model # is tested and certified by NSF International against NSF/ANSI Standard 42 and not standard 53. There are two NSF International/ANSI Standards for “Drinking Water Treatment Units” (not including others for reverse osmosis, ion exchange, and ultra-violet units) Standard 42 is for Aesthetic Effects and Standard 53 is for Health Effects. These standards are similar and most of the basic requirements are the same for both. Water filters with a Standard 42 (aesthetic effects) certification are designed to minimize non-health related contaminants such as chlorine, taste and odor, and particulates. Water filters with a Standard 53 (health effects) certification are meant to reduce health-related contaminants that may be present in public or private drinking water. Filters that meet the Standard 53 requirements are able to minimize exposure to microbiological, chemical or particulate contaminants that might be hazardous to your health. These types of filters are typically best suited for individuals who have well water...^IFV

How easy is it to take out the old filter and install the new filter?

Asked by: hrh145
Installation of a new LG 6 Month / 500 Gallon Capacity Replacement Refrigerator Water Filter (part # 5231JA2002A), Model # LT-500P is an easy procedure. Depending on which refrigerator you have, you will need to first turn off your water supply to your refrigerator, take out the top shelf and remove the lamp cover by pressing the tab under the cover and pulling it out toward the front. To remove the old filter, slowly turn it to the left a quarter turn until the unlocked symbol is lined up with the indicator line in the control box area and pulling it down. After you have taken the new filter out of its' packaging, and removed the protective cap that covers the o-rings, line up the ears so that the new cartridge can be inserted into the filter head. Twist the cartridge a quarter of a turn to the right to lock into place. You should feel it stop and the lock symbol should be aligned with the indicator line. Remember to turn the water supply line back on and replace the lamp cover and the top shelf. You will need to flush 1.5 gallons (flush approximately 3 minutes) of water before use. You should open the refrigerator door a moment later to check for any leaks in the shelf area. The instructions for replacing the water filter were detailed in the owner's manual. If you have misplaced the manual, you can always download one from refrigerator's support page at^IFV

This filter does not look the same as an original one. How come? 

Asked by: Kaye935
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this product. Without a model number of the refrigerator, which this filter would have accompanied, it cannot be determined if any changes occurred.
