If I remember correctly it requires a quarter to half turn to disconnect in the counter clock wise direction. May take some grunt to free it. If that fail try channel lock pliers and be careful to not break it. once turned it should pull straight out. Try that as maybe its not twisted into place properly to start and just needs to be pulled straight out.

SOURCE: Hissing noise in freezer

When you observe this is your compressor quiet? Then most likely your refrigerator is in defrost mode. The water is coming off the evaporator (think of a very cold radiator) as the defrost heater element warms. This element is similar to the electric heating element in the bottom of your electric oven. the water hits it and it will hiss. This is part of the normal operation of a refrigerator. The defrost cycle usually lasts from 20-30 mins and will occur 4-6 times a day. If you are having trouble with frozen food melting then re-freezing, or the temps are on the warm side, you might need to have your defrost timer or defrost termination switch looked at.

SOURCE: 15 month old Kitchenaid french door refrigerator - water pooling and freezing on the bottom of tthe freezer. Seems like the grids on back wall may be the culprit, as after ice is removed they seem to

more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. Over time it gradually builds and starts voer a larger area. Being you have a top mount refrigerator(freezer on top) there are air ways that connect the freezer to the fridege, which is how its cooled. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt
If thats not an option that you want to use the actual repair method would be to 1) unplug the machine 2) empty everything out of the freezer so you'll have room to work 3) take all the shelving and baskets out 4) locate the screws on the rear wall inside the freezer and remove them 5) take the back panel off exposing the evaporator coils ( the aluminum ) 6) directly below the coils is a trough of sorts and the drain is usually in the middle and runs out the bottom, remove the ice by carefully chipping it out or by using a hair dryer or hot water. 7) once all the ice is gone, the drain is visible and water can flow smnoothly down the drain dry the area and reassemble.
Note that on your machine you should pull the machine away from the wall so you can get behind it and remove the lower panel. Locate the drain tube that runs from the freezer, usually a black or white tube, and at the end verify it there is a rubber piece that looks like a duck bill of you will. If it is there, grab said piece and remove it from the drain line. This is the cause of the water not draining out of the freezer

How to change the water filer on a rf4267hars 25.5 ft


You must shut the water valve to change the water filter. If you don't havewater valve near the fridge, shut the main water valve for few minutes. If you turn the water filter to change without shutting the water valve, lots of water flooring the fridge and you do lots of work to remove the water inside the fridge. Shut the water valve, and then replace the filter. Then turn the water valve.

Spilled milk inside the fridge ends in the catch tray


The pan is for holding the defrost water for it to evaporate. If the milk creates an odor, you can acces the pan by removing the front panel under the door (usually). The pan will probably come out so you can clean it.
