No secrets... just press "up" and twist clock-wise.

Replaced filter and now water not working

Try removing and replacing the filter. If this does not work, and if you have the old filter, replace the old filter to see if the problem is resolved. If it works with the old filter, the new filter may be bad - so contact the seller for a replacement.

Removed and replaced the water filter from the base of my fridge and know I have an intermitent water hammer. Any ideas?

The new valve may not be so new. Anti-hammer water valves have around for decades, so if you replaced your old valve with a new one that hammers, take it back and request a anti-hammer valve. For some reason, hammer valves have made a return, get rid of it before it breaks a water line.

Amana model# SZD23VE refrigerator were is the water filter? or does it even have a water filter?

Yes it has a water filter option. The water filter housing is in the refrigerator near the top of the unit. You need to twist the old filter itself to the left to remove. (You will be removing a cover that you need to take off the old filter and put on the new filter. This cover can also be replaced without a filter to bypass the filter. The part number for the filter is AP4310541, .

I hope this helps.

How do I replace the water filter? No owner's manual is available

The water filter cover is the round thing you see in the toe grille beneath the freezer. It will have a handle that should be horizontal. To remove the filter, turn the handle counterclockwise 1/4 turn, then pull it out. If you have trouble, try removing the toe grille so you can get better access to it. Once you have it out, be sure to take the handle off the old filter and on to the new filter. Be sure to remove the red cap on the pointy end of the filter, then stick the filter back where the old one was. Be sure to push firmly when you turn the filter clockwise 1/4 turn. After you have the filter installed, be sure to take a big glass and run the water for a few minutes.

How to replace the filter


Take the new water filter out of the box and remove the two red shipping caps on the end of the filter.
The water filter is located on the front panel down near the floor.
Push the release button located just to the left of the water filter grille cap, this will release the filter.
Remove the grille cap from the filter by twisting it counterclockwise.
Reinstall the grille cap on the new water filter.
Insert the new water filter in the refrigerator making sure the words on the filter are the correct side up.
Push the water filter in until it clicks in place.
Flush Water After Installing New Filter
Be sure you flush out the water from the new filter after you replace it! Many readers are having trouble with airlocks because they are skipping this important step. Kenmore recommends you run the water out of the water and ice maker for a few minutes to flush out the new filter. This also helps remove air bubbles from the system. If you don’t do this it’s possible that the water dispenser may not work properly due to an air lock.

This particular water filter claims to reduce:
Cysts and turbidity – linked to gastrointestinal problems
Chlorine – taste and odor for better tasting water
Sediment – for clearer water
o-Dichlorobenzene – linked to risk of liver, kidney, or circulatory system problems
Benzene – linked to increase risk of cancer and anemia.
Note continue changing the filter on a regular basis.
Hope this helpout....

Remove the new filter and re-instal. If this doesn't solve problem I would put the old filter back in and try. If you now have water remove the old and try the new one again. Don't forget to push firmly as it may have not seated fully.

Bad water & ice cube taste

then change your filter. the new filter could be different with the old filter. check the new filter, see if there is odor removal and taste removal with it.

if not then get the filter with carbon filter, odor and taste removal.

then with a new filter, run about 5 gallons of water before using the water for drinking.
