Steps to Clean the Air Filters:
1. Locate the Air Filter Compartments:
* The PFE28PBLTS refrigerator typically has two air filters, one for the fresh food compartment and one for the freezer compartment.
* The fresh food compartment air filter is usually located at the rear of the refrigerator, either in the upper left corner or near the top of the fresh food section.
* The freezer compartment air filter is typically found at the rear of the freezer compartment, near the ice maker or ice bin.
2. Remove the Filters:
* Open the refrigerator and freezer doors.
* Depending on your refrigerator model, you may need to twist or pull the filter housing cover to access the filters. Refer to your refrigerator's user manual for specific instructions on how to remove the filters.
* Take out both the fresh food and freezer compartment air filters.
3. Clean the Filters:
* Fill a container with warm water and add a small amount of mild dish soap or a non-abrasive cleaner.
* Submerge the air filters in the soapy water.
* Gently scrub the filters with a soft cloth or sponge to remove any debris, dust, or residue.
* Pay attention to the filter's mesh or fabric material, and clean it thoroughly.
4. Rinse and Dry:
* After cleaning, rinse the filters thoroughly with clean water to remove any soap residue.
* Allow the filters to air dry completely. It's essential that they are completely dry before reinstallation.
5. Reinstall the Filters:
* Once the filters are dry, place them back into their respective filter housing compartments.
Make sure the filters are properly seated, and reattach any covers or housing.
6. Reset the Filter Indicator (if applicable):
* Some refrigerators have filter replacement indicators that need to be reset after cleaning or replacing the filters. Consult your refrigerator's user manual for instructions on how to reset the filter indicator if necessary.
7. Check Regularly:
* Make it a routine to check and clean the air filters every 3 to 6 months or as recommended in your refrigerator's user manual. However, if you notice a significant buildup of debris or odors, clean the filters more frequently.

Cleaning the air filters in your refrigerator helps maintain proper airflow, reduces odors, and ensures efficient cooling. Proper maintenance of the air filters can extend the life of your appliance and keep your food fresh. Always refer to your refrigerator's user manual for specific instructions and maintenance recommendations for your model.
