How often should you change the water filter in a refrigerator?
Yes, at least every six months, that's at a minimum. However, if your water is less than perfect, you may have to change it more often. Most filters come with a warning light to indicate if it needs changing. Without that, you should check it about every three months to see if it's OK. It's not hard to see if there's a build-up on the filter, and if you see anything at all, change. At least every 6 months. Inside of most refrigerator water filters is a activated carbon block wrapped in a type of paper skin. Actived carbon is excellent at taking out water impurities and chlorine. The paper skin acts as a prefilter and will plug up with dirt and sediment. Pending on your incomming water quality you should change your filter per the manufactures spec's of every 6 months.

HOLD IT UP TO A LIGHT SOURCE AND LOOK THROUGH IT. THE MORE PLUGGED IT IS THE LESS LIGHT WILL PASS. PLEATED FILTERS LAST LONGER BETWEEN CHANGES AS THE SURFACE AREA I…S LARGER. UP TO 4" THICK PLEATED FILTERS ARE AVAILABLE. ANNUAL REPLACEMENT IS AVERAGE. THE 4" REQUIRES A FILTER CAN OF IT'S OWN BE INSTALLED. LC
If you intend to keep your vehicle's engine clean, change it every time you change your oil. The filter holds the dirt your engine generates. Hence the dark color of your oil …as it ages and is pumped through your engine. Dirt is dirt. Get it out.

At the least every 6 months. It also depends on how much water your using. Its always best to check them every two months to make sure they are still good.
If you forgot to change the water filter in your refrigerator and have surpassed the manufacturer's stated service cycle for the product, it is best to change the filter befor…e using ice or water from the refrigerator. Most water filtration devices reduce contaminants either by trapping impurities in the pores of the filter or by adsorbing the contaminants on to the surface area of the filtration media. Eventually, the filter media will become full, and the filter will not be able to adsorb any more impurities. \\
because if the filter is old its going to have a lot of the imperfectuons from the water that's has contusly run through it. the more of the garbage stuff it holds, the less e…ffective it will filter
Every 30,000 miles unless you drive in a dusty area.
Pre-filter for what? You posted this question in the Fuel Filter category. So I must assume you mean the pre-filter on the fuel pump. That is changed when the fuel pump is rep…laced.
Depends on which filter you are asking about. Oil Filter = Every 5,000 miles. Air/Cabin Filter = Every 30,000 miles. Fuel Filter = Every 50,000 miles.

Change recommendations vary depending on the kind of filter used. The time recommended to change a disposable CPAP filter is every two to three months. The non-disposable only… needs to be replaced when the materials break down.
The Maytag refrigerator water filter needs replacing approximately every 6 months. It can last up to a year before wearing it out but for best results change it before then.
Change the oil filter every time you change the oil.
