Important Note About the PUR W10186667 Push-Button Refrigerator Water Filter

Before buying the PUR W10186667 Push-Button Refrigerator Water Filter it is paramount to note that there are two models of these filters – 4396710 and 4396841. Part 4396710 should not be used with refrigerators with “Fast Fill” or “PUR Measure” dispensers. If your fridge has these features you should purchase filter 4396841.Though the description may seem the same, from the PUR’s website it is clear that the 4396710 removes 16 contaminants while the 4396841 removes only 6 contaminants. The 16 contaminants removed by the 4396710 are lead and mercury, chlorine taste and odor, particulates, benzene and toxaphene, asbestos, cysts and turbidity. The 4396841 however, does not remove the last 3.However, if it is proving difficult for you to make a decision between the two, you can always put a call through to your local Sears store with the model of your Kenmore before placing your order.

It seems there are a LOT of misuderstandings in these reviews. If you own a Sears refridgerator it IS a Whirlpool, or Kitchen Aid, or whatever else with a “Kenmore” name plate on it. Sears doesn’t make their appliances and they purchase appliance from varios companys and put their “Kenmore” brand on it. I have a Whirlpool fridge, Whirlpool dishwaher, and GE microwave. They all say Kenmore and the stainless stell matches perfectly. A Sears sales rep will tell you who makes the specific unit. This is true for Kenmore washers & dryers as well, all appliance. Secondly, Whirlpool, Kitchen Aid, Kenmore, etc. do not make the filters. Sears, Whirlpool, etc. sell the filter with their markings on it. PUR make the filter. This is not a cheaper replacement for the filter, it is the same filter. I have been using PUR filters bought on-line for 5 years now and it is the same filter that came in the refridgerator when I bought it. The only thing to keep in mind is that the “universal PUR Filter”, that fits all push button, in the grill units, does not have the same filtration as the the specific PUR filter that comes with the fridge. For example the “Universal” filter is about $26 on Amazon and my fridge came with a PUR 4396710 which cost about $32 on Amazon. Both will work, but the $32 unit filters out about 11 types of impurities, the $26 unit is 4 types. I buy the 4396710 to protect my 2 year old and wife. What is $7 more when it’s your family’s health. They are about $50 each at Sears.

First time changing filter. Not sure if all do this, but when i changed, we had extremely high pressure. Im guessing it was acting like there wasnt a filter in at all. Caused water to keep flowing a bit (without pressing).

It perfectly replaces the original Kenmore filter Model: 09030. Sears web site sells 09030 for $54.98. I signed up for subscription with Amazon and my cost is $26.00. Significant savings.

Works with my Kenmore fridge.

I purchased this filter for my Kenmore side-by-side, which I got from Sears in late 2007. The “official” part number for the water filter my fridge uses is 9030. It is a Pur brand filter.

Why pay twice as much to Sears

Quite simply, this works just the same as the Kenmore filter and costs a lot less money. By the way, a service man told us that even this filter is good for twice the use that the light on the refrigerator suggests. Just reset the light and you keep on using it. We’ve done this and noticed no degrading of taste or water flow.

Great Filter for my Fridge

I normally have a tough time finding a filter to fit my Kenmore fridge. Sears is great, but there are none close by to me now. This filter fits perfectly (even though it says Whirlpool) and works great. Ice and water taste so much better than the water straight out of the tap.

My family goes through a lot of water in the course of a day, and we rely on our refrigerator to filter it. It’s great that the inside of the fridge has a colored light to indicate when the filter has started to turn. With the Pur W10186667 Push-Button Refrigerator Water Filter, the system couldn’t have been easier: it’s simple to swap out and subscribing to replacements has been extremely convenient.
