Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I want to replace the water filter. I have tried to get it to release by hand twisting to the left but it won't budge. I can't find my manual so I am reluctant to force the filter off. It must unscrew because I can find no other release such as a button. Any thoughts and or suggestions?

    The filter I purchased at Sears references a button to push for release of the filter, my unit does not have a button.

My suggestion would be to get the new filter and see how it would go on. This would tell you how your old one should come off.

I need help with my whirlpool ref water filter replacement.

Need more info on what type of fridge it is. Side by side with the water filter at the bottom with the push button on the left. Push it really hard and the filter ejects from the housing. Or if it's in the ceiling or top of the fridge inside the fridge compartment. You lower the cover, then lower the filter (will still be hooked up) then grab the filter with with both hands. One in the back to twist and the other on the front to keep it stable and in place. If you twist from the back and don't hold the front. It will snap that plastic that the filter goes into. Which we don't want to happen. After yiu replace the water filter. Make sure you dispense at least 1/2 a gallon or a full gallon of water out or the water dispenser to get all the air out of the water line. Having air in that line can and will cause a bunch of other issues later on.

Hope I was a little helpful my answer.

How do I remove a refrigerator water filter bypass cap?

It should twist about a quarter-turn counterclockwise - like from the 3:00 position to the 12:00 position - then pull straight out. It fits the housing exactly the same way as the filter fits it.

Can not remove the water filter it's stuck

These water filters are prone to getting stuck. Remove the filter snap cover by gently prying hte left and right sides out. You will need to use 2 hands and grasp the filter head with one hand, which the filter twists into and the filter with the other hand, twist firmly to the left or counter clockwise at least half a turn. Not holding the filter head will cause the head to snap out of its holder and just flop down. Pleazer Appliance...

How do i change the filter in the amana my ice taste bab do i need to cut the water supply off to change the filter

Water filter is located in the upper right hand corner of the fresh food side.

Follow these steps:
  • These eight inch long filters are housed in their own compartment. The base of the compartment can be released by pushing in on the release clip found at the end of the housing unit. Allow the base of the housing compartment to hang down while you remove and replace your filter.

  • Twist the spent filter to the left (counter-clockwise) and gently pull on it to remove it. There is an automatic water shut off to keep leaks and spills to a minimum.

  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove the plastic wrap, and peel off the aluminum topping. Insert the new filter into the housing unit. Twist the filter to the right (clockwise) until it clicks into place. Replace the base of the filter housing by cliping it back in place.

  • Condition the filter by dispensing several glasses of water through your refrigerator. This ensures that all fine carbon particles have been removed.

  • Check the filter and the inside of the refrigerator for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and install the filter again.

All Magimix processors I have seen have not had release buttons to release the bowl/lid. It may be worthwhile you contacting Magimix themselves to see if they can help you.

I have been unable to remove the wter filter. I have tried to turn it 1/4 of an inch clockwise as described in the owners manual but the filter won't budge. any suggestions?

OK maybe try 1/4 inch counterclockwise and pull down. Here is what the service manual quotes.

That is easy for anyone to misread.
Water Filter Removal

The water filter is located in the upper right-hand

corner of the refrigerator. The water filter filters water

for the ice maker and the water dispenser.

1. Turn the water filter 1/2 turn counterclockwise and

pull it down.

2. To install the filter, align the indication mark

(unlock position) and push it up while turning 1/2

turn clockwise until the lock position is aligned.

Do not over tighten.
That would be to the left while facing the filter and opposite for installation. Note where and when to push up. Please let me know if you have any questions and please rate if I am able to help you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Water filter won't come out when I push the button

Push button? It should be a turn to the left to remove if it is a whirpool located at the bottom. These are twist out not push to release. The only push to releases are made by electrolux.

You just have to twist hard the first time for some reason. If you hold the container with your right hand you actually have to twist the bottom half CLOCKWISE when viewed from above.
