I'm not really sure what it stands for it may just be part of the model number or a part number. You need to know the model number of your refrigerator which you should be able to find inside of it on one of the side panels. The filters list which refrigerator model numbers that they will work with. The off brands will not work with my fridge even though it listed it as being compatible so I went with the samsung brand. Hope this helps.

These suffixes are internal codes and don't indicate any difference in terms of design or compatibility. Both are compatible with the same refrigerator models.

I use the "b" filter in my refrigerator and I have no issues. My refrigerator is originally set to take the "a" filter but they no longer make them as far as I know.

There are different product codes that are used to describe the same filter with the model number HAF-CIN; DA29-00020A/B and DA29-00020B are the same. When installing the new filter it may take a little longer for the water to run through, but make sure it's locked in place. Once the water does flow through, be sure to dispenser up to 5-6 gallons to bleed air from the lines.

Question

The manual of my Samsung RFG28MESL refrigerator indicates the HAF-CIN/XME as the proper water filter for the model.

However, I cannot find it with the extension "XME". Wherever I look for a Samsung refrigerator Water filter , I can only find as HAF-CIN. Are these models exactly the same?

Yes, the HAF-CIN and HAF-CIN/XME are the same. The model number you've provided for the refrigerator is not consistent with any current models, but if your refrigerator's manual indicates the HAF-CIN/XME then the HAF-CIN will also fit.

Question

RF28HMEDBSR/AA - Will DA29-00020B work?

Hello,

I feel almost silly posting this but after reviewing all of the compatibility links, I can't find any confirmation that my refrigerator will work with the DA-29-00020B cartridge. It looks like it fits but now there is a strange noise coming from the fridge whenever water is dispensed. Please advise!

Sounds like it could be air still trapped in the lines after the change out. If you havent done so already, flush the line for about 5 minutes or about 10 gallons of water.

Thanks for the question. The DA29-00020B is the correct cartridge for the RF28HMEDBSR/AA Refrigerator. The noise may be due to air in the lines which is a normal occurrence after changing the filter. Bleeding the air by dispensing 5-6 gallons of water should resolve this issue. In addition, pressing the test button on the ice maker to reset it should help to prevent the temporary change in water pressure from interfering with ice production. Instructions can be found on page 23 of the user manual.

I put a new filter in and it leaks. I shut the valve off and installed the new filter. I then ran about 4-5 gallons of water to make sure the lines were clear. About 20 mins later, I notice it was dripping from the front of the filter where you lock/unlock it. Please help!! How do I get it to stop leaking/dripping???

Spend about $400 and have the entire filter housing replaced by a Samsung Tech. I hope your refrigerator is still under warranty. The Replacement filters sold at Best Buy are not the same as the Original (OEM) filter. That being said, using the replacement filter damages the filter receptacle on the refrigerator, which leads directly to the dripping. To immediately stop the drip, just remove the filter. The bypass system will still allow the water to go to the water dispenser and the ice makers.

According to the manual drips are normal when installing / replacing. It may be air pressure preventing the filter from locking correctly. I waited 12-24 hours (norm for Samsung) before installing second time and with only a few drips. It may also be a bad filter. Call or Chat with a Samsung tech they are very helpful and will send instructions and diagrams while waiting online for you to attempt to correct issue.

I'm sorry to hear you're having an issue with your refrigerator and filter. I would suggest calling either 888-BEST BUY or 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to help determine whether service will be necessary in this instance.

Thank you,

answer 6
After replacing the filter you'll need to reset the Filter Indicator Light by pressing the appropriate button on the control panel. Which button you press varies depending on the Refrigerator model, but many of the current models have the Alarm button assigned for this task, with the words "Hold 3 seconds for Filter Reset" or something similar printed below the button. If you don't see the instructions on the control panel, you can find them in your Refrigerator's User Manual, or if you submit a new question with the model number I'll be happy to let you know which button to press and for how long.

Thanks for choosing Samsung!

Question

Do you actually NEED this filter?

Do you actually NEED this filter? What happens if you don't replace it? I live in an area with great tap water, and paying 50 bucks every time the light flashes and say "replace" seems unnecessary and costly.

I often pondered the same question and the correct answer is NO. You don't have to buy the filter if the local water is great or if you have a water filtration system installed. I just bought it out of instinct. I actually could have saved a little money.

My light came on after 10 months or so. I didn't think it was too expensive. Of ccourse, it is going to be more expensive than the tap water, but if you buy filtered water at the store like me it saves lot of trouble and some money, too.

Thanks for the question. Samsung recommends maintaining the filtration system in refrigerator models that have it to help prevent damage to the internal water lines that can result from impurities or debris in the water supply. The water dispenser and ice maker are designed to function whether or not a filter is installed, however, so homes with an external filtration or reverse osmosis system would not need to replace the filter regularly.
