After 4 months of service the Kenmore filter 46-9902 cartridge cracked under normal service and flooded the kitchen… luckily no damage as I was at the refrigerator when this happened.
The cartridge is made of plastic and costs 65 Canadian, the representative is Sears Kenmore but the refrigerator is a Kitchenaid side by side.
The issue as I see it is that the filter’s failure could have cost me my insurance or sears thousands of dollars if this had happened during the day while no one was home.
I feel that the filter must be re-engineered so that it can withstand higher city water pressure (120 psi)
Kenmore should disclose the filters manufacturer and someone should start a class action lawsuit
