SOURCE: Trying to change LG side-by-side fridge filter

I used a strip of Duck Tape to make a handel. Just stick it to the sides with a loop at the bottom. This will allow you to pull with more force...

WARNING, dont break it! I have a small leak now. I have removed the two screws to access the whole receptical that holds the filter. It now leaks a few drops on the left side when water is dispensing or filling ice tray. I need to find a replacement now.

I don't think replacing the filter had anything to do with your problem.  If the ice maker is working then the freezer is OK since they have the same cooling source.  I had the same problem with this model refrigerator six months after I got it (in 2/2007).  The cooling in the refrigerator section failed.  The refrigerator fan and the air duct as well as the mother board were replaced.  A year later the ice-maker fan froze up. It and the housing were replaced with improved models.  The mother board was also replaced again due to software changes related to the ice maker.  This model is also part of an Energy Star/LG case agreement to modify the circuits and provide a lifetime annual rebate payment.  Check it out and register on the LG web site.

SOURCE: lights stay on inside Sears (really LG) french door refrigerator

That should be a covered repair. There was a safety bulletin on that. Call Sears and complain. Tech should have known that.

If the filter is clogged would it quit working


Hi there! If the filter is clogged this will cause the vacuum to lose suction and possibly shut-off. Below are instructions to checking and cleaning your filters.

1. Remove the dirt cup. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the filter cartridge from dirt cup.
3. Separate the foam and cartridge filters. Wash foam filter under running. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum.
4. Tap the excess dirt out of Hepa filter. Hepa filter may also be washed. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
5. Check the secondary filter by removing the filter cover from base. Rinse the foam filter under running water until it runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
6. The red baffle tube inside of the dirt cup is apart of the filtration of the vacuum and needs to be cleaned as well. Twist out the baffle tube by turning 1/4 turn clockwise. Remove any hair or debris wrapped around baffle tube. Baffle tube can be rinsed if needed. Allow to dry thoroughly.

If the filters are too dirty they may need to be replaced. With regular maintenance the filters should be replaced about once a year. Follow the links below to order replacement filters for your UH20020.

    How do I change the air filter, not air conditioning filter, for the engine on a 2005 Crossfire?


    The air filter is in the air intake box (usualy square plastic tub) under the hood. A couple of clips unsnap and the top comes off. Replace the element inside.

    Where is the a/c cabin air filter located in a 2005 outlander


    • It is behind the glove box. There is a tab on the inside of the glove box on the left side that needs to be pressed in and then a plug that you slide to remove. The glove box will now pull forward and down exposing the access panel. Now you see the access panel for the cabin air filter. Remove the two Phillips screws and pull the filtyer housing forward and remove and replace the cabin air filter...

    • Here is a video that will help as well.

    Removing VW polo 2005 battery?


    Removing a battery from a Beetle is a bit complex and tricky. I just changed the battery in a 2003 2.0 Beetle. However, the process is very similar in a TDI Beetle. You will need more than your standard generic tool set in order to complete this task. Your tool list needs to consist of a pair of pliers (prefer locking type), a # 20 TORX head screwdriver (You will also need this if you ever plan on changing the Beetle's internal dash pollen filter for the A/C. ), a 10 mm and 13 mm sockets, a long extension and a wobble or universal to allow flexibility in tight spaces, an allen socket for removing the power steering reservoir, and a small adjustable wrench or a 10mm to remove the battery cables. If you are changing the battery you might as well buy a new Air filter since you will need to remove the air box in order to replace the battery. If you do change the air filter you will need a phillips head screwdriver.

    1. Pop the hood.
    2. Remove the two 10 mm bolts that hold down the air filter box.
    3. Undo the clamp that holds the large tubing to the air box using your pliers. Move the tubing away from the box.
    4. Unclip hose attached to the back of the air box near the large hose (under it).
    5. remove the small breather hose from the air box.
    6. Pull air box up and out.
    7. Remove snap on cover from top of battery.
    8. Remove small snap on wiring cover from back of the battery covering.
    9. Unbolt power steering reservoir (next to battery case).

    10. Disconnect the battery cables. Positive side first.
    11. Remove the 13 mm bolt at the base of the battery along with the hold down clamp.
    12. Pull the top wiring away from the battery case and then slide the battery towards the engine.
    13. Remove the plastic battery case.
    14. Remove the battery
