Called company.  Have to eliminate water pressure by moving refrigerator out and turning off incoming water from line in back.  They said water pressure was preventing cartridge cap from turning.

I have the same problem. I did change the filter located on the bottom front panel of the refrigerator, but the red light is still on and NO ice. I can't figure it out and I know if I call a tech, its a 300.00 bill. Frustrated.

Filters themselves don't usually leak. Check full insertion of filter, cracked filter housing or cracked supply line.

Howdoi remove the oil filter on a 1989 celebrity?


If I recall, that is a rather small filter. There would be a filter remover that fits over the end of the filter and is turned with a ratchet wrench. They are called oil filter cap wrench, at any parts store. There are about 3 different sizes of oil filters, so you need to find the proper fit for your filter.
You put the cap over the end of the filter and use a 3/8 drive ratchet wrench to turn the filter counter clockwise to remove. Once off, wipe the filter surface clean with a rag. then put fresh oil on the new filter's rubber gasket and install only hand tight-as tight as you can get your hands to turn the filter. OR, you spin new filter on till the rubber gasket touches the base of the engine block. then turn filter 3/4 turn more.

How do I change water filter


Hello Anita;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number, so I am going to have to tell you where the water filter might be.

1.) On the lower, front bottom grill or toe plate, in the center there is a round hole. In this hole is your water filter. Grab the end of the cylinder and turn 1/4 turn counter clock wise and pull out. There will be some water in the filter. Slide the end cap off the old filter and slide it back on the new filter. Insert the new filter, push in and turn 1/4 turn clockwise.

2.) In the upper back right hand corner of your refrigerator section is where your water filter is located. There is a plastic cover plate around it, but you can still see the bottom of the filter canister. Reach in and turn the bottom of the filter 1/4 turn counter clockwise and remove. Insert the new water filter and turn 1/4 turn clockwise.

After installing a new filter, there is air in the filter. Run your water dispenser until a steady flow of water come out. You will get air & water spurting out.

If you only have a ice maker, you will have to manually cycle your ice maker until it fills.

The water filter change light is not tied into anything in your unit. It is like a egg timer. Even when the indicator light indicates to change you water filter, you only change your water filter when either the water coming out of the water dispenser is slow or you are getting small ice cubes.

Oil filter gasket


Your oil filter comes with a rubberized o-ring. When you take off the old oil filter, make sure you get the old oring with it. If you don't you'll have problems with the new one. Apply a light coat of clean oil to the new filters o-ting before installing. This helps the filter bond to the motor. turn the old filter counter clockwise to remove it. When installing new filter, fill filter with oil prior to installation. Turn clockwise to tighten. Tighten till snug, then give it an extra quarter turn for tightness. Again, make sure you remove the old o-ring from the motor if it does not come out with the old oil filter. No need to take new oring off new oil filter. Just fill, lubricate seal and install.

How to change water filter?


Hi

Find the indication light, located at the top of the Whirlpool refrigerator just inside the door. This tells you when to change your water filter. A green light indicates the filter is good and a red light indicates you need to change the filter.

Find the filter knob. It is usually located at the base of the refrigerator in the kick plate or grill.

Turn the knob a quarter turn to the left to unlock the filter. Pull out and remove the old filter.

Add a new filter and push in. Turn the filter a quarter turn to the right to secure it in place.

Reset your filter indication light inside the refrigerator. Press down and release the switch five times within 10 seconds. The filter indication light should then turn green.
Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Difficulty in releasing old water filter from holder


ukflagger,
Your statement says you turned the filter fully clockwise, to remove the filter you would turn it counterclockwise. I figure you know that and did a typo.
My first suggestion would be to turn the filter fully counterclockwise until the dead stop, then while holding the filter with one hand you would push and release quickly the water dispenser lever. The pressure should pop the filter out of its socket.
My second suggestion is turn filter counterclockwise to dead stop, then take a very hot towel (protect your hands and to not touch towel to any glass shelves) and wrap it around the filter. This method will hopefully warm the water in the filter causing the water to expand and help push the filter out of its socket.
My third suggestion would be more extreme. Turn the water supply off. Turn filter counterclockwise to dead stop, then drill a hole in the side of the filter to allow air into the filter to release any vacuum in the filter allowing you to pull it out of the socket.
If none of these work then the filter socket probably will have to be disconnected so you can get it out of the compartment and get a better grip on all.
I have never had to go that far myself.

Good luck and I hope I have helped you.

Replacing filter


Just as a chance make sure there's nothing missing on the old filter by comparing the two "heads". I could be possible that a small piece broke off the old filter and is stuck inside the holder. Other than that don't push too much, concentrate on the turning vice pushing and turning. It should be hard to turn but not impossible, pliers can also be used to have more leverage to compress the o-rings.
