Description of Samsung HAFCIN / HAF-CIN:
Use this replacement filter with your Samsung refrigerator to provide clean, fresh-tasting water and ice from your side-by-side or French door refrigerator. Slim design allows for easy installation and removal; no tools required. For best results, replace your Samsung filter every 6 months.
Fresh Filtered Water and Ice at Your Fingertips: This refrigerator water filter is used in select Samsung French door and side-by-side refrigerators with filter access inside the refrigerator. Simply turn the filter to the unlocked position (1/4 turn to the left) to remove and replace. While retaining beneficial fluoride, this NSF® Certified refrigerator water filter reduces cysts, chlorine taste and odor, particulates (Class I), lead and mercury. Replace your Samsung Refrigerator water filter every 6 months to ensure clean, safe drinking water. For added convenience, all Samsung refrigerators with an external dispenser have an indicator light on the display that reminds you when its time to replace your water filter.
Certified Performance: Samsung water filters are tested and certified by NSF® International, a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to public health, safety and environmental protection. This certification is widely recognized around the world as a guarantee of safety and is your assurance that this filter has been tested by one of the most respected independent certification companies in existence today.
Reduction of Contaminants: Samsung water filters use only a high-grade carbon block which removes over 99% of the potentially harmful contaminants that may be present in your water:
Chlorine Taste & Odor: Chlorine is used widely to treat water but may add a particular taste and odor to the water
Heavy Metals & Chemicals: Lead, asbestos, benzene, mercury and carbofuran; these common industrial contaminants with high toxicities can infiltrate the water source and be potentially harmful to your health
Microbial Cysts: Parasites such as cryptosporidium are commonly found in lakes and rivers. They have a high resistance over disinfectants such as chlorine and thus may be present even in treated water
Follow the below guidelines for when to change your Samsung water filter:
6 Months: Recommended for households with municipal water
3-6 Months: Changing the filter more often is recommended for households using well water
Now: If water has visible particulates or an odor, you notice a decrease in water flow, or the filter indicator light is red (note: about 1 month before the filter needs to be changed, the indicator will first turn orange)
How to reset the refrigerator water filter indicator on the external display (after replacing the filter):
Simultaneously press the Ice Type and Child Lock buttons for 3 seconds.
