Question about Refrigerators
Is there a trick to inserting the above filter in the back of the refrigerator? It seems to be extremely difficult to insert it high enough to twist it clockwise to install.
SOURCE: Water filter replacement
Fm, it's not threaded, turn it counter clockwise until it stops (should hear a click), then pull it out. Push the new one in all the way and turn it clockwise, you should hear it snap in. You may have to use a little force. If you are still having trouble, give them a call at 1-877-714-7481. Catriver.

I had the same problem. I coudn't get the knob to turn. I ended up taking the front grill off so I could get a better grip on the knob. Once I did that I still have to put a lot of pressure on the knob to turn it but that did the trick. When I got it turned a quarter turn then it was easy to pull the filter out. Hope this helps!

take and shut off the water to the unit then take the filter base off so that you can see where the tubing goes into the filter. you may have to replace the tubing if it was cut during the move.

I just got my whirlpool fridge and I'm having the exact same problem! The blue cap appears stuck and I'm afraid I'll break it if I force it with a tool. Please post a solution if you get one - I'll do the same. Thanks.

SOURCE: I purchased a new filter
Reset by pressing and holding the Light/Filter button until the number returns to 6 (6 months). Some models only allow you to do this when the number reaches 0 (ie change the filter)
Reset the "Filter Indicator" light (follow the link and click on the instllation tab)

The water line is freezing in the door due to deteriorated insulation. The only fix I have found to work on my fridge was to defrost the inside door with a blow dryer. Then place a weedeater replacement line (the orange 10" or so size you find at Lowes' or Home Depot) up through the dispenser nozzle, If the line only travels about 3-4 inches up the nozzle, then ice is still in the tube. Blow dry it until you are able to get water to dispense. After the tube is ice-free, place the weedeater line up throuth the dispenser nozzle leaving about 1/8" sticking out. The dispenser will still work with the line stuck in it. The dispenser will probably freeze again in about 8 hours, But all you need to do each time this happens is to pull the weedeater line out, dispense the water to unclog the ice, and place the weedeater line back in the nozzle. I have been using this method for about a week now and it works great. My GE Side-by-side is also 4 years old and this seems to be a problem with all of them. There is a part you can order to fix the problem, but I have heard it may not work.
