Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
I need help with locating the place where filter goes.
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.
