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.

Where is the water filter frs24wscb


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know where the water filter is located on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS24WSCB. The water filter is located in the top back right-hand corner. To change filter follow the instructions below:

It is not necessary to turn the water supply off to change the filter.

1. Set ice maker lever (wire signal arm) to the OFF (up) position.
2. Hold filter cup firmly, and unscrew counter clockwise. (Some water could leak out as you remove cup. This is normal.) Filter cartridge should come down with cup. If cartridge remains in housing, pull down gently, while twisting filter back and forth.
3. Empty cup of any substance.
4. The large o-ring that seals the filter system sets in the o-ring groove down inside the cup. Should the o-ring fall out during filter cartridge replacement, simply place it back in the groove prior to screwing the cup back in place. If the o-ring becomes damaged, you will need to order a new one from the Consumer Assistance Center.
5. Discard old filter cartridge.
6. Remove new filter cartridge from packaging, and install.
7. Place filter cartridge in cup. The end with the small o-ring should be up, out of the cup.
8. Screw cup, with filter, back onto housing. Do Not Use Wrench To Reinstall Cup. Filter cartridge will self-align as cup is tightened. Be sure cup is completely tightened with PureSource Plus Logo facing outward. Do Not Tighten Past Stop.
9. Set ice maker level on the ON (down) position.
10. Check for leaks. Open refrigerator door. Wipe any water drops from the filter cup. Run a glass of water. If there is a leak, unscrew filter cup, and reinsert the filter cartridge. Check placement of large O-ring. Reinstall filter cup, making certain it is tightened completely.
11. To condition filter system and purge air from water line, run several glasses of water through water dispenser. This will also assure that the purest water possible is stored in water tank.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

How to Change the Filter on an LG Refrigerator


The procedure is as follows:--

1) The water filter located in the top left corner of the refrigerator in the small tube with a bottom hole.
2) Before removing the water, drain the water in the chamber by turning the filter handle counterclockwise.
3) Then carefully slide the cartridge out of the tubing.
4) Take the new filter and push the replacement filter into the filter holder.
5) While placing the new filter the filter handle should be positioned vertically.
6) After placing the filter turn it clockwise to make the new filter fit properly.
7)Test by running water in to the tubing and check if its going freely or getting blocked.

This will help.good luck.

The place where the water filter goes in won't open so I can't replace the water filter. It will not turn the 1/4 turn to the left as per the instructions. It seems stuck.


Hi there

These caps can be very stubborn to remove, the 'o' ring seal can almost lock it into place.

There are 2 things you can try

Switch off and unplug the fridge

Switch off the water supply and open the dispense valve

1. Use a hair drier to warm the cap, be careful as this can get very hot, you may choose to use gloves if it seems very hot, be careful not to overheat as this can distort the cap.Then twist anticlockwise and pull to remove the filter cap.

2. Put a shallow tray on the floor below the filter and cap, carefully and slowly pour hot (not boiling) water over the can then ,wearing gloves, twist anticlockwise then pull to remove the cap.

You may need to persevere if the filter has not been changed before.

Having changed the filter then plug in the unit and switch on the power and water and draw off water from the dispense valve in 5 second burst for about 2 mins to remove air from the filter and ensure that clean water is right through the fridge

Hope this helps

Where is the water filter for the ice maker located on a GE tfx24zr side by side refridgerator located


Filters situated in the interior liner of the refrigerator compartment of GE-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  1. Remove the old filter by grasping it and slowly making a one quarter turn to the left.
  2. Pull down gently on the filter to remove it from the mounting bracket assembly. Be careful to not tip the filter, as water may spill out of it.
  3. Discard used filter.
Water by Culligan filter cartridges need to have a water filter adapter installed. This is a one time installment, and once you have this adapter installed, it stays in the refrigerator for all future filter replacements. If your refrigerator already has this adapter in place, do not remove it to replace the filter.
Smart Water filter cartridges do not require the use of the water filter adapter. If for some reason your refrigerator has an adapter in place already, you will have to remove it before installing a Smart Water filter cartridge. The adapter is removed in the same manner as the filter itself: with a gentle quarter turn to the left.
Remove the new filter from its packaging. Apply the appropriate month sticker to the filter to remind yourself to change it again in six months' time.
Fill the filter with water from the tap, and then line the arrow on the filter up with the arrow on the cartridge holder inside your refrigerator.
The filter automatically pulls itself into position as you turn the filter to the right and lock it in place. Be careful to not over tighten the filter into position.
Run water through your dispenser for about three minutes to clear the system. Keep in mind that a newly installed water filter could initially cause water to spurt from the dispenser.
Note: Replacing this type of filter is a quick process - there is no need to unplug your refrigerator when replacing it. Also, this filter should be replaced every six months.
Hope this was helpful to you. Thank you for using fixya.

Need diagram to re-install culligan module 4428-45 serial 322938


If you have not changed the other filters then they need to be changed also. The system should be sanitized before you re-install the filters. The Membrane goes in with the large rubber seal at top of filter housing. Place inside the head of module until it seats and reinstall housing over it.
1. Drain the tank completely
2. Take all the filters out
3. Add 1/4 tsp household bleach to each housing, turn water back on to fill housings, let it sit for 15 minutes.
4. Flush the bleach out completely.
5. Re-install filters
6. Flush/empty the storage tank 2 x before using water.

Mold in water dispenser tube


Your refrigerator has a filter system below the bottom and behind the kick plate. Two or three times you need to turn the water supply off to refrigerator and fill the old filter with clorox to kill the algae growing in the storage tank and after you finally get this out and purge the chlorine from system will you be able to use the ice or water to consume. I know this seams harsh but really there is very little else that can remove this without changing the whole water system. Once this is done change the filter regularly and this will help, click on link below and place your model number into the model search feature. This will give you pictures of the parts and there location. Let me know how this goes, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Location of refrigerator water filter


The filter should be a canister somewhere in the line from your sink to the refrigerator. If there is no canister visib;le there then obviously they never installed a filter in the first place. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. thanks.
