    whats the model theres afew different? is it located under the kickplate or is it hanging from ceiling of refrig compartment??





    if its behind the kickplate should be a quarter turn counter clockwise and will pull right out, new one goes in same way (clockwise). it might be difficult but it will turn removing the kickplate might make iteasier.

    if its inside the refrig compartmant push the tab to release the housing and then a quarter turn on that one.

What is the model number for the water filter for the KitchenAid #KSRG25FKSS16 refrigeator and where is it found in the refrigerator? thank you.


Hello pssutherland,

I understand that you need to locate the water filter on your KitchenAid fridge. The water filter is located at the bottom of the fridge in the grill. There is a eject button that you will need to press next to the water filter in order to get it to release.
1. Press the eject button
2. pull the filter straight out
3. Remove the cap by turning it clockwise (you will need to install this on the new one)
4. Reinstall the cap on the new filter
5. Push the filter in until the eject button pops back out.
6. Purge the system run three full glass of water thru the water dispencer and throw away.
7. You are done

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

We have a KitchenAid Superba Refrigerator trying to replace the water filter and the cap won't budge. model: KSRG25FKBT03/ turning counter clock wise. Do you have any suggestions?


Hi

These caps can be very stubborn to remove, the 'o' ring seal can almost lock it into place.

There are 2 things you can try

Switch off and unplug the fridge

Switch off the water supply and open the dispense valve

1. Use a hair drier to warm the cap, be careful as this can get very hot, you may choose to use gloves if it seems very hot, be careful not to overheat as this can distort the cap.Then twist anticlockwise and pull to remove the filter cap.

2. Put a shallow tray on the floor below the filter and cap, carefully and slowly pour hot (not boiling) water over the can then ,wearing gloves, twist anticlockwise then pull to remove the cap.

You may need to persevere if the filter has not been changed before.

Having changed the filter then plug in the unit and switch on the power and water and draw off water from the dispense valve in 5 second burst for about 2 mins to remove air from the filter and ensure that clean water is right through the fridge.

Good luck

Where is the water filter located on a kitchenaid ksrp25qdwh00


This particular water filter is known as a ``in line water filter`` and is located at the BOTTOM of the fridge at the LEFT hand side. located in the grill at the bottom. first you must remove the filter cap and then It simply twists out for easy replacement. part number for the water filter is 2255519. and should be replaced based on a 6 month period or the amount of water filtered. hope this helps

Thanks

Water filter removal


Lawrence, you will need to get a filter plug that replaces the filter, if you don't want to use the fridge filter element, otherwise, you will not be able to get ice and water from the dispenser.

I tried to look up the part you need, but the model number you provided appears to be missing some alpha or digits. I would suggest you contact KitchenAid or the retailer where you purchased it from, and ask them to order you the plug. Sometimes these fridges are shipped with the bypass plug installed and the new filter gets put in at installation by the delivery people, etc. If yours already had the filter installed, you'll have to buy a filter cap/plug in order to still get ice and water from the fridge.

Here's a link to a possible plug for your fridge:

Here's another one you can look at, just scroll down and you'll see the plugs mid-way down the page.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Kitchenaid fridge (ksrw25crss02)icemaker slowly stopped working, decreasing in the amount of ice it made until finally no ice at all. also, water trickles from water dispencer.


hi kev215,
welcome to fixya.com.

Huuum at your service.

You said, the ice maker slowly stopped working, decreasing in the amount of ice it made until finally no ice at all. also, water trickles from water dispenser.

The first thing I would ask is when did you last change your water filter in the fridge?
Or if it's an older fridge with an inline filter behind the fridge!
check the shut off valve for the water line that leads to you ice maker. under the sink or in the basement or where ever the line comes from. I've seen where someone turned the valve a little clockwise unbeknown to the home owner and stopped or slowed the water flow.

The water line should be checked too, for any kinking that may be running behind the fridge or some unseen place!

How old is the fridge??

Let me know,
Thank you Huuum
