What does the Air Filter do?
An air filter is 15 times more powerful than baking soda at reducing common food odors inside the refrigerator. On some models, your refrigerator's accessory packet includes an air filter which must be installed prior to use. The air filter is located on the rear wall near the top of the refrigerator compartment. It is recommended that the air filter be replaced every 6 months.
