Does refrigerator water filter affect ice maker?

One of the most frequently asked questions among consumers is, “Does refrigerator filter affect ice maker?” To help address the question, I would like to spend some time editing this post.


The best answer I can give you is “Absolutely”. Here’s why.


In some refrigerator models, the water line that supplies the ice maker and water dispenser connect through the same filter. If the filter is clogged, water can’t get through to create ice, and you will have to take longer and longer to fill your glass.


Besides, the filter can affect the air inside the ice maker. If any problems happen to the filter,  your ice would be overly cloudy or have an odd taste or odor.


To keep the ice maker working smoothly, I recommend you to clean it every three months and change the filter every six months or every 200-300 gallons of water.
