    My filter would not budge until my son figured out that the top shelf in the refrigerator was too high. I took the top shelf out and it allowed the water filter to drop enough so it just came right out!

Here's the only thing that worked for me in getting the water filter out of my LG refrigerator after trying for three weeks, pulling hard by hand, using high-grip gloves, and trying an oil filter wrench. You have to break or lessen the suction created by the water in the filter. Do this by first turning the filter to the Removal position (in my case, a quarter-turn to the left). Then grip the filter tight and rock it back and forth slowly as far toward the back and front of the refrigerator as possible, while keeping a bit of downward pressure on the filter. This lets the two O-Rings "walk" their way down the insert tube. After only a few pushes and pulls - voila! -- it lets go and will drop right out.

For me the top shelf was too high and would not let the filter drop far enough to pull out. I had to remove the top shelf to remove the filter.

    YES THAT"S the problem. The filter door NEEDS to open ALL the way to be able to remove the water filter because the shelf IS preventing the filter from releasing. I now WROTE inside my filter door to -1) remove top shelf 1st before removing filter as a reminder next time.

    Thanks Jerry ... I am a handy guy but could not get mine loose and gave up ... It was exactly what you said , I took out the shelf which was in the very top holes and it came right out ... It let it go down the little extra it needed to dis-connect ... If I hadn't read your comment I would of probably have had to call a service tech ...

Change code combination

Setting the Combination
1. Remove the key holder from the KeySafe by pressing the RESET button, followed by the OPEN button. Pull down on the key holder from the bottom of the KeySafe
2. Remove the bracket. Press the Release tab on the bracket and slide the KeySafe upward until it is free of the bracket.
3. Remove the plastic card attached to the bracket. You will see ten numbered buttons with arrows. These numbers correspond to the numbered buttons on the front of the KeySafe. An up arrow indicates that the button is not selected, a down arrow indicates that the button
is selected as part of the combination.
4. Using the screwdriver tip on the plastic card, apply light pressure
to rotate the arrows on the buttons you've selected for your combination a half-turn to the downward position until it snaps into place. Caution: The arrows must either point up or down, with downward arrows representing the numbers in your combination. If any arrow is pointing left, right, or is not fully seated when turned downward, the combination will not work. Improperly setting the combination is not covered under the warranty.
5. Return the plastic card to the bracket for future use

Refrigerator RF323TE how do I change the water filter?

The filter for the french door refrigerator is probably behind the vegetable drawer, if you do not see it in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator compartment. Remove the veggie drawer and turn off the water coming into the refrigerator. Rotate the old filter to the unlocked position and remove it. Then take off the protective cap from the new cartridge and insert it into the refrigerator. Rotate it to the locked position. (Rotate the filter to position the label before you insert the filter. Then the filter goes in correctly.) Reinsert the vegetable drawer and close the doors. Then turn the water back on and fill several glasses with water to clean the filter. Pour that water down the drain at your sink.

For pictures of how to hold the filter, see . See the FAQ on replacing the water filter. I hope this helps.

Where is the fuel pump located in a 2005 Neon and how do you replace it?

Locate the Fuel Filter and Fuel Pump

  • Raise the Neon's rear end on jack stands. Remove the panel inside the trunk covering the fuel pump assembly. The fuel filter should be on top of this. On most Dodge Neons the filter is usually directly attached to the fuel pump. In that case, those two parts should not be separated and should be replaced together.Its a silver dome about 2.5 inchs round with a single plastic hose coming off it.

  • REMOVAL :-------

    1. Refer to Fuel System Pressure Release in the Fuel Delivery System section of this group. The fuel filter/fuel pressure regulator is located on the top of fuel pump module. Fuel pump module removal is not necessary.
    2. Raise vehicle on hoist.
    3. Disconnect fuel supply line at the Filter/Regulator nipple.
    4. Depress locking spring tab on side of Fuel/Regulator and rotate 90 ° counter-clockwise and pull out. NOTE:Make sure that the upper and lower O-rings are on the Filter/Regulator assembly.

    Lightly lubricate the O-rings with engine oil.

    1. Insert Filter/Regulator into the opening in the fuel pump module, align the two hold down tabs with the flange.
      1. While applying downward pressure, rotate the Filter/Regulator clockwise until the the spring tab engages the locating slot.
      2. Connect the fuel line to the Filter/Regulator.
      3. Lower vehicle from hoist.----------------

    Carpet setting: the brush drive does not work with the carpet setting. Is there a way to remove the bottom to determine if something is caught in the system?

    To determine if you have a clog, first remove the attachment hose like you were going to put an attachment on. With the vacuum in the upright position, turn the vacuum on and place your hand over the hose. Do you feel a strong suction? If not remove the hose attachment by turning the locking ring at the end of the hose on the back of the vacuum counterclockwise, then remove the hose. Stretch the hose to it's fullest length several times. I would do this over some plastic or outside to keep the dust down.
    Once you have done this replace the hose turning the locking ring clockwise to lock it in place, give the hose a little tug to make sure it's attached and locked.
    Again, with the hose free from the agitator turn the vacuum on and fee for a good suction.
    If you still don't have one then you likely have a plugged filter.
    You will need to remove the dust bin.44d2af9.jpgOnce the dust bin is removed, over you trash can empty it by pressing the dustbin door release downwards. Now rotate the dustbin lid counterclockwise to remove the primary filter. With the lid removed grasp the filter and turn counterclockwise to remove the filter.
    Pull the filter out over a trash can. Once out inspect it, if it's dirty you should wash the filter in warm water until the water is clear. When finish let the filter air dry for 24 hours before reinserting it.
    Upon reinserting the filter, turn it clockwise to lock it in place, install the filter cover with a clockwise rotation to lock it in place and reinstall the dust bin.
    Now plug the vacuum back in and again with the hose removed from the agitator or brush and ready to install an attachment then the vacuum on and you should have a solid suction.
    These vacuums are really prone to poor suction if the filter get dirty. Because they have washable filters, you should take time about one a month to clean the filters.
    Thanks Dorrian
