There is a filter cartridge that filters the drinking water. I need to replace it once in 6 months. I have done this process many times without any difficulty. But this time the filter in the fridge will not turn 1/4 turn to get it removed. How to solve this problem?

    I just now tried an idea to warm up the area near the tip using a hair dryer( using a low setting and carefully applying air. After a minute , I turned the filter anticlockwise, it turned and became loose.Thanks for all the people who responded to my initial question.

Sorry to hear that. Most filters must be depressed slightly then turned. if there is a lot of pressure on them they may not want to turn. If it is possible turning off the water and then pushing a glass under the water dispenser may relieve the pressure enough to remove the filter. Hope this helps.

Black & White Particles in Water


Those filters are behind the grill, down at the bottom of the refrigerator. You will need to turn it 1/4 turn, counter-clockwise then pull out. With your make and model number go to Lowes or Home Depot and get a new filter. After installing it take the time to run about 5 gallons of water through it before using for drinking water. (This clears the filter of an anti-microbial agent used during manufacturing.) This will fix your problem.

Water won't flow, water line clear and has water running thru it....


Then you have to replace the water filter of the refrigerator. It is having some blockage that is why water is not flowing in it.
Filters situated in the interior liner of the refrigerator compartment of samsung-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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
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.
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.

You are getting water feeding back to the kitchen faucet from the filter system. A check valve needs to be installed on the line feeding the drinking water system to prevent this. Excess pressure may also be causing these problems. An in-line flow restrictor may alleviate the dripping.

Kenmore Fridge - Bad Testing Water


Your refrigerator definitely has a water filter. If you have gone 5 years without replacing the filter, you and your family have probably been drinking contaminated water, for some time. Water filters should be replaced every three to six months. On some refrigerators, and in cases of higher water consumption, the filter must be changed every 60 days. Sears sells replacement filter cartridges for Kenmore refrigerators.

The water filter on your refrigerator is located at the front base of the unit, in the grille, below the freezer door. There, you will see a round cap. Turn the cap counter-clockwise, until the handle is vertical.Then, pull it out of the grille. The filter cartridge is attached to the cap. After removing the cap and filter, slide the cap off from the existing filter cartridge. Slide the cap on to a new cartridge, and re-insert with the cap handle in a vertical position. Push it in, firmly. Then, turn the cap clockwise, until the cap handle is horizontal.
