Ukflagger,
Your statement says you turned the filter fully clockwise, to remove the filter you would turn it counterclockwise. I figure you know that and did a typo.
My first suggestion would be to turn the filter fully counterclockwise until the dead stop, then while holding the filter with one hand you would push and release quickly the water dispenser lever. The pressure should pop the filter out of its socket.
My second suggestion is turn filter counterclockwise to dead stop, then take a very hot towel (protect your hands and to not touch towel to any glass shelves) and wrap it around the filter. This method will hopefully warm the water in the filter causing the water to expand and help push the filter out of its socket.
My third suggestion would be more extreme. Turn the water supply off. Turn filter counterclockwise to dead stop, then drill a hole in the side of the filter to allow air into the filter to release any vacuum in the filter allowing you to pull it out of the socket.
If none of these work then the filter socket probably will have to be disconnected so you can get it out of the compartment and get a better grip on all.
I have never had to go that far myself.

Good luck and I hope I have helped you.

How to change water filter French door model AF12538AEB


The filter housing for the Amana AF12538AEB is in the upper right of the fresh food (refrigerator) compartment of the unit. Pull forward on the tab of the filter cover and bring the cover down. This does not completely detach; it just pivots down. Turn the old filter counter-clockwise until it releases from the filter head. (Alternatively, remove the blue bypass cap and save it.) Wipe up the excess water from the filter cover. Remove the sealing label from the new filter and insert the end of the filter into the filter head. Rotate the filter clockwise until it stops. Snap the filter cover closed. It helps to remove all of the food from nearby when you tilt the filter cover down.

This is shown on page 14 of the manual which is available from Sears Parts Direct here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/afi2538aeb-amana-parts-manual?manualIndex=0 . The direct link to the manual is https://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0809416.pdf .

I hope this helps.

How do I change the bulb


1. First, make sure the power is turned off.
2. If the bulb is being used for some time, then let the bulb to cool as it will be really hot to handle.
3. If the bulb is too high for you to reach, use a step ladder to safely reach the bulb and remove the bulb. There are two types of bulb mountings:
a) Screw Fitting (common in Europe)
Keep turning the bulb anti-clockwise gently until the bulb comes loose from the socket.
b) Bayonet Mount (two prongs, standard)
Grasp the bulb lightly but firmly, push upwards gently and turn anticlockwise until it is released from the socket.
4. Insert the replacement bulb lightly but firmly into the socket. Depending on the type, turn it clockwise until it locks into place or keep gently twisting clockwise until it won't go any further.
5. Once the bulb is in, restore the power back on and switch on the light.
6. The old bulb needs to be disposed of safely as the glass is fragile and very sharp. Use the packaging from the new bulb to wrap the old one for safe disposal.
PRECAUTIONS
1.
Check the wattage on the used bulb and replace it with a bulb of the same wattage.
2. Dispose of the bulb well out of the reach of children
3. Don't put your fingers in the exposed light socket

How do I change water filter


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.

How do i reset the filter light on my refrigerator msd278ge


Hello,

Simply press and hold the dispenser lock and auto light buttons on the dispenser (at the same time) for four (4) seconds until the filter status indicator begins to flash, then release the buttons. On some Amana refrigerators, you need to press the dispenser lock and water buttons for four (4) seconds until the filter status indicator begins to flash, then release the buttons.
Also note that

  • Remove the old water filter from your refrigerator by turning the handle counterclockwise and pulling it out of the filter holder. The filter is located in the upper right corner of the refrigerator.
  • Step 2Slide the replacement filter into the filter holder and turn it clockwise.
  • Step 3Press and hold the "Reset Filter" button until the indicator lights go off if your model refrigerator has a "Reset Filter" button on the control panel.
  • Step 4Hold the "Lock" and "Light" buttons on the control panel until the filter indicator lights turn off if your model refrigerator does not have a "Reset Filter" button. For models that do not have a "Light" button, press and hold the "Lock" and "Water" buttons.
  • Good luck......

    Water fliter


    For a GE (which you posted under) just turn the filter a quarter turn counter clockwise to remove the old filter. Water will shut off automatically, so you will only loose a few drips. Install new filter by lining up arrow/ cheveron and turning quarter turn clockwise.

    Unable to removed samsung aqua-pure water filter


    A lot of different brand refrigerators have similar problems to this. I encountered this stuck filter problem on our Samsung side-by-side fridge that has the filter inside the fridge side and above the top shelf towards the back-right corner. Here is the solution that worked for me...

    1. Remove the top glass shelf to give yourself extra working room.
    2. Put on some rubber cleaning gloves to be able to get a tight grip.
    3. Turn the old filter 1/4-turn to the left... it may take quite a bit of force.
    4. Pull-down on the old filter to remove it. If it still will not come out, proceed to the next step.
    5. After you turn the old filter 1/4-turn to the left and it stops, then get a good grip, because you will need to turn it an additional 1/8-inch to 1/4-inch. The left-edge of one of the vertical molding lines that run down the Aqua Pure filters should be directly under the centering-mark on your water filter holder.

    That extra 1/4-inch counter-clockwise turn always seems to do the trick, and then the filter pulls down and out easily. Good luck!

    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.
