How to change water filter on frigidaire fridge
Hi, The filter is in the upper right hand corner of the fresh food section. Turn the filter cup counter clockwise to remove it. There will be a filter cartridge in the cup that you replace.

you need two things. the most important is a bigger tool. The filter is just too tight for loosening by hand. use a big pair of channel locks or a smal pipe wrench to turn the filter body to your left when facing it. you won't hurt it. counterclockwise to remove it, clockwise to install it back. put it back a hard hand tight and make sure it doesn't leak when you run water through it. you don't have to turn off the water, but run plenty of water through the new filter to get the air out.
the second thing is to curse it properly and sincerely while loosening the old filter. the harder you have to work to loosen it, the more specific and socially unacceptable the curse words have to be. white collar and office type workers frequently fail at this part because they aren't really cursing from the heart. you have to mean it.

SOURCE: dirty water line from filter
Attach flexable rubber line from water bottle, like is used for race bicycle riders,or tape up a hose to a water bottle. Turn off valve at water pipe leadign to line to filter. Remove filter. place a pan to catch water under the machine. Attach A small diameter hose to water line where water exits to glass.With machine turned on and your rubber hose attached turn bottle upside down and squeeze while pressign glass lever. Flush through approximate one quare or until water stream is clear. Their is no pumb ofor flow the line preaure is al that moves the water so backflushing is easy.

check to make sure there is nothing blocking the water lines and no kinks in the water lines, you did not say if it had an ice maker, and if it is affected.
The frigidaires also has a plastic tube coiled under the back to dispense cold water make sure this tube is not kinked.
Hope this helps

What is the model number of the refrigerator. looks like it is in the upper right corner of the fresh food section. If you go to frigidaire.com you can get the owners manual.

You should change out the water valve on your refrigerator. The filter shouldn't make any difference on the flow. We have parts and supplies for Electrolux, so call us with your model number and we'll be sure to get the correct water valve out to you right away!
