I just had the same ting happen to me. You need to leave the cover to the water filter (it is the black plastic cover that is part of the grill) is still connected to the filter. After depressing the eject button, this cap helps to pull out the filter. DON'T throw away this very important part, other wise it is impossible to get the filter out. Once you eject the filter, some water will leak from the filter. Just put it in the sink to drain for a while.

I had a similar problem. In fact, the new filter couldn't be made to stay flush with the fridge housing. This filter, as it turns out, has been redesigned by the mfg. The unit is now opaque as opposed to the original design, which is covered in white plastic. The reason that the filter will not lock in place is that there is a bar between the two connectors which is longer than that in the original. I was told that there are certain Frigidaires which will not accommodate ths new design. This leaves me with o alternative than to find a source for the original filter design - the one in which the activated carbon is visible through the clear plastic. I'e ordered one from eBay and am hopng for the best.

I too had this problem...the metal tabs in the filter housing need to be bent in toward the center to hold the new filter tighter...I also filed the tabs that rest on the spings down a bit to lessen the tension. So far so good!
