On top of all the headache of it not fitting, be prepared for an ill-fitting filter to shoot out of the fridge at you. Yes, it can build up pressure and if you happen to have the door open watch your feet - we were "this close" to getting a broken toe or two (plus it completely broke open the filter and was beyond repair). If you don't have the fridge open you're just going to hear a loud thump as it ejects forcefully, but continue to be careful as it could still come down at you when you open the door. Also, add a plethora of water all over your fridge and floor as it continues to pop out and spill the water that collected inside the filter while it was connected, all while you figure out what's happening.
In the end I decided to do my own permanent home fix:
1. I reached in with a needle-nose pliers and removed the spring to cut down on unnecessary pushback.
2. I used needle-nose pliers to tighten the metal clamps at the back of the housing to make them tighter (you will either need some really long pliers, or you will have to unbolt the little 1/4" bolts that hold up the white housing to the fridge in order to get access to do this if you have a regular-sized pair. Hold down the eject button for the filter while you do this to get more leverage in order to bend the clips even further.
3. I used some thin metal strapping to create a band that will not let the filter move whatsoever. I used a 90 degree drill adapter in order to get the screw inside the housing to seat exactly where I wanted it, but you could accomplish the same with a stubby screwdriver (although not as easily). Make sure you know where you are screwing into seeing as how there is the post for the 1/4" bolt right around the area you want to target (left side of the housing). If you have unbolted the housing it's easy to see/locate a good place. The screw on the right hand side was no big deal, there's nothing behind that area you can hurt (see picture 1).
4. I removed the front plate of the filter and used a coping saw with a fine-toothed blade to remove all the plastic backings of said plate (see picture 2). You could also accomplish this with a heavy set of dikes but I found this way to be quicker and easier.
5. I put some velcro on the metal strap and on the back of the plate so I could put the plate back on and hide the ugly.
I had everything to do this home fix around the house so it cost me zero. You may be thinking that you are passing the point of no return by performing this, and you are, but it was worth it for us to avoid the hassle of calling Frigidaire or dealing with some repair person or unknown/hidden costs. Also, if you are thinking this will hurt your ability to sell it when you get a new fridge you should consider the fact that you aren't going to get a lot of buyers when you tell them that the ice maker and water dispenser aren't working. Also, this system does not prevent you from replacing the filter when its time because it's a fix, not a bypass. Just undo the screw on the right and move the metal strap out of the way, press the eject button and pull out the filter, take the plate off the new filter, slide it in, re-screw the metal band in place, reattach the old plate and you're done - a minute longer process at best.
UPDATE: July 27th. Amazon sent me a replacement filter and I received in less than 2 days (way to go Amazon!). Unfortunately I am having the same issue with this filter which is why I dropped the rating down to 1 star. I called Fridgidaire and they confirmed that they switched suppliers a few months ago but received enough complaints about the filters since the switch that they have since gone to another supplier. They said that the defective filters are likely still in stock at other stores and websites and that if I want a good filter that I need to order it directly from them. I am going to give that a try even though they are more expensive. In the mean time I am sending this filter back to Amazon for a refund.
*** Edit ***
I called Frigidaire customer service (1-877-808-4195) and complained that the new filters I bought didn't fit the fridge like the previous 15 have over the last 7 years, and the customer service rep told me that they have indeed changed the design of the filters, and they are sending out a technician at NO CHARGE to the consumer to update the filter assembly inside the refrigerator. I am updating my review to 5 stars since the filters always provide a high quality drinking water, and the outstanding customer service of Frigidaire (Electrolux) to upgrade the filter system in my fridge FOR NO CHARGE after owning it for 8 years.
The recall number that you give to the local repair company for the free housing modification is RF-1210
