Cant get filter out of kenmore elite 106.58173703

It describes in manual to push the eject button and the filter should pop out but it doesnt and the eject button is very hard to push in. Also, the water dispenser tubing at the bottom of the freezer door does not seem to want to stay in its connectiing tube located behind the grille. And....Ive got 2 extra pieces 1 black flexible knob as well as a hard grey knob!!?? It doesnt say in the manual what these are for!

I am having the same problem with me GE side by side. I check my gasket and I don't have any screws so I assume that I have a "foamed in place" doors. I did notice when took the front of my ice / water dispensor off the circuit board has a connection named "heater". Is there any way to check heater and if it is bad how and where do you replace it. Thanks.

If it is a plastic compression fitting you can tighten each one a little(careful not to tighten them too much cause they can strip out) Use a small crescent wrench with a back up wrench.

OK guys, GE does have a solution to this problem and it's EXPENSIVE. I goofed and called GE repair. $263 later it was fixed. Here's what I've done to villify them:


General Electric Company March 31, 2008
3135 Easton Turnpike
Fairfield, CT 06828-0001 Attn: J. Immelt Dear sir or madam, or whoever opens this because I know Jeff Immelt won't be the actual person to open it. This has already been sent to GE Corporation Appliance Park 6, Room 129 Louisville, KY. 40224 so don't send it to them. Send it to someone who may actually do something about this problem. I have a GE refrigerator, Model GSS25WGPAWW, S# AF 217252 which has had a continuing problem for several years. My first error was in not reporting this sooner. My home is in a gated community in which the developer used GE appliances exclusively. What I have determined now (after I paid for the repair) is that many residents have had the exact same problem: the in-door water dispenser freezes solid. The second mistake I made was calling GE repair to fix the problem. I was charged a total of $ 263.15 for the repair; $ 63.30 for the part, a flat rate of $79.95 for the repairman to show up and then $105.00 labor cost plus tax. Our community has an Internet based communications system ( Googlelist) and I posted the following message there. . My fellow residents responded that GE did fix many of the same problems at no charge after they call GE Customer Care rather than GE repair. Several others have paid for the repair. I then reported this to your sales http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/form_service.htm) department up until the 25th of March , I have received no reply. ____________________________________________________________________________ TO:http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/form_service.htm Just thought you'd like to know: I live in a gated community with over 1400 residents and they all got the following message: Posted on Googlelist-at Herons Glen So my water line to the in-door dispenser kept freezing up. I'd have to turn the fridge off and open the freezer door for up to 5 hours for it to melt. Then 3 or 4 days later it would freeze again. So the GE repair guy came and installed a $63 part in about 20 minutes. It was a heat tape applied inside the dispenser cover. Now for the fun part: $79 just to show up and then $105 "labor" ??? That's about $315 per hour - my kind of job. Oh yea, another $14.90 in taxes. Once I had the part number, I found the part on-line for $42. Forget about it really being a manufacturing defect that should be covered by warrantee. GE does not care! They advertise how "energy conscious" they are and then solve a defect with a heat tape that adds heat to an appliance that's supposed to be cold! Go figure! If this offends any ex-GE employees....GOOD _____________________________________________________________________________________ When I subsequently called GE customer Care on March 25th I was told "we have no recalls on that model and there is nothing we can do". I've gone on-line and searched for "GE water dispenser" problems and, WOW, you've got lots of problems. On March 26 I got a reply from From: answerctr@exchange.appl.ge.com They gave me a Tracking Number and another phone number to call 1-888-348-7563. I called that number on 3-27-08 and got the same answer: "we have no recalls on that model, have a nice day". My question is: Will GE do something about this? I have $ 263.15 out of pocket cost, a copy of the repair bill is enclosed, for what appears to be a design flaw and that flaw has been repaired for others "at no cost". Sincerely, Tom Morookian 20729 Mystic Way No. Ft. Myers, FL 33917 239-731-3452 Tommorookian@aol.com encl: (1)

The real problem is that the water line is supposed to be installed against the front panel of the freezer door. During assembly they don't do this so some of the lines are against the inside edge of the door, they then "foam" the door and they freeze. The heat tape does fix the problem and you can do it yourself. I'm "GEsucks" for a real good reason. I've posted this on several web-sites and I'm looking for a lawyer to file a class action suit!

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite - Interior water dispenser stopped working

Frozen water tank, some of these had an insulation kit that will prevent this from happening. Make sure you have water coming out of valve to tank, if so it will probley be a frozen tank. Make sure fridge is on factory settings. If it doesnt thaw out, check into the frozen tank kit...

I can't remove the old filter to replace it. You're supposed to push the button in and it would pop out, but it won't go in. 56166501 is model.


If its been some time since you last changed the filter then you may need to pull the filter holder while holding the eject button. Don't twist the cap on the holder, just pull.

If you can't get a grip on it and the eject button still doesn't work then remove the base grille by openeing both doors and pushing the top and pulling the bottom to give you better access to the eject button and filter holder.

Looking for water filter to be replaced. The red light is on and I can't find filter.


On a Whirlpool you can check the bottom front black vent piece, filter cover looks like a half-moon shaped cover. Its under the freezer side. There is a thumb-sized black push button next to it which will 'eject' the filter. Push on the black button and the filter pops out

How do I replace kitchenaid superba KSCS25FKSS00 water filter. When I try to turn counterclockwise with my hand it doesnt budge? I have never done it in 5 years


Here are some instructions for you.. it is important to press the ejection button and pull the filter straight out before turning counter clockwise..

1.Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille. 2. Pull the filter straight out.
3.Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove it from the filter. IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter. 4.Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and turn the cap until it snaps into place. NOTE: You can run the dispenser without a filter. Your water will not be filtered. Simply insert the cap all of the way into the base grille and rotate the cap until it is firmly in place. 5. Remove the protective covers from the O-rings. 6.Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop back out when the filter is fully engaged.
I hope this information helps you with your filter. They suggest you replace the filter every 6 months. It could help the quality of your water and if you make a lot of ice..

Need a manual on my refrigerator


That model uses the 9030 style filter at Sears. To remove the old filter push ******* the button next to the filter until it pops out a little then just pull it out, remove the cap and place it on the new filter. Make sure you remove the red seals from the end of the filter.
