Question about Refrigerators
Grasp the filter firmly and turn it counter-clockwise until it releases.
Some water will spill so hold a small bowl under it.
Install the new one in reverse order. Pushed up turn clockwise until it seats.
It will take a while to purge the air out of the system, so be patient.

They are simple to install, and can be installed on any model refrigerator. They snap / connect into place in the water supply tubing located behind the refrigerator. Many filters use simple compression fittings that are a breeze to connect. The in-line filter kit comes with directions and the fittings to install it. The filter should be changed about every six months because it becomes saturated with gunk.
For a first time filter change all you should have to do is:
1. Turn off the water supply line
2. Unscrew the compression nuts on both ends of the filter and remove it.
3. Take the compression nuts off the new filter (not used as the old compression nuts still in place should be fine)
4. Insert the water line in to each end of the water filter.
5. Tighten both compresson nuts (one on each end of the water filter)
6. Turn on the water supply
Note: There is a chance that your Ice Maker will skip a few ice making cycles until all of the air is purged out of the new filter.
7. Sit back in awe as to how easy it was to change the in-line water filter :)
Take care and thanks for using Fixya!

Make sure that the water filter is the right one and that it is pushed all the way in. If that is correct than There should be two solenoids located behind the fridge at the bottom one is for your ice and one for water. Unplug unit and test the water solenoid with an ohm meter across the two terminals if it ohms out or beeps than your solenoid is bad.
