Does the bypass filter still filter water?
For model number FGSS2335TFSS
Hello Bill, Thank you for the question. The Water Filter Bypass will not filter the water. It is used to plug the filter housing so the water bypasses the filter and goes directly tot he ice maker or dispenser. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

How often should this filter be chaged
For model number 242294402
Hello Jannie, thank you for writing. It is recommended to change the Water Filter at least once every six months. This is the Water Filter Bypass Plug though. If you can provide the model number for your refrigerator, we can locate the correct Water Filter for you.

I replaced my frig filter with a by pass filter 7 years ago. The water dispenser has gotten very slow and the ice maker is not making enough ice any longer. Does the by pass filter need to be replaced ?
For model number FGHC2355PF5
Hello Pam, Thank you for the question. With no filter in place, you may have a build up in the waterlines that is causing the water to flow at a flower rate effecting the ice maker and dispenser. We hope this helps!

    Needed to replace water filter
    When you push in on the end of the water filter it releases a mechanism and it springs back toward you to pull out. Then just push the new filter in until it clicks into place.
