There should be a compression fitting that seals the water tube to the fridge. The fitting looks like a brass or plastic nut that the tubing sticks into. Shut off water supply to the fridge and carefully remove the fitting nut...there should be cone shaped compression ring inside the fitting nut. Slide the nut over the tube, then the compression ring over the tube. If the compression ring is tapered towards one end, then put the narrow end towards the end of the tube. Now stick the tube up to the fitting on the fridge where the nut screws on to the fridge. Hold the tubing firmly against the fitting and slide the compression ring and nut up to the fitting and screw the nut back on (compression ring should be inside the nut). You must hold the tubing firmly against the fitting until you get the nut tightened back down good with a wrench. This should take care of it.
If you find that the tip of your tube end is damaged, then you may have to cut off the tip of the tube to get it to seal and hold. If you find that the compression ring is damaged (won't slide over the tubing) or missing, then you can go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get a new nut and compression ring...they are cheap. You can also get new tubing there if you need it.

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!

SOURCE: Pure Source 2 Filter keeps popping out...Just replaced it. No pressure changes and the old one , still works fine..if I put it back in...but the new one just pops out after about 10 min or 5 or so gl
Is it the square filter that goes in the upper right hand corner inside the refrigerator? If it is, you will need to replace the filter holder.
