What costumer say about Samsung DA29-00003G Aqua-Pure Plus Refrigerator Water Filter, 1-Pack (Tools & Home Improvement) ?
Does Not Work - Possibly Fake or Defective - This filter did not work in my Samsung refrigerator, which is less than a year old. I installed it, and it would not flow water when turned to the locked position. It was only when I turned it back to a position somewhat in between "insert" and locked position that it would flow water. I briefly considered leaving it in this position, assuming it would work well enough, and that it was just a bit misaligned. I feared that it would pop off though and leak water everywhere. Fortunately the refrigerator made the decision clear, as it began to chirp and flash lights continually. It flashed the energy saver light on and off rapidly and was annoyingly loud. As a simple test, I swapped back in the original Samsung filter that came with the fridge. All noises and light flashing stopped. I then went down to Best Buy and bought another filter. This one worked perfectly. I can only assume that the filter sold on Amazon is flawed or defective and being sold as authentic, new, first quality. Obviously the locking lugs on the filter were not in proper alignment with the water holes. Counterfeit part? A rip off. Now I'm outside the return window and out my money. Better off paying full price for a working authentic first quality filter.
