Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator and then drain some of the chilled water. This will relieve the pressure in the water line. Then push in on the cap and give it a quarter-turn to release it. You need to push pretty hard, but not too hard or you'll break it. If you are ALMOST to the point that you feel like you would want to grunt to push any harder, then you are in the zone.

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.

Where is the water filter on my whirlpool model gx2fhdxvy09


Water Filtration System
The water filter is located in the upper right-hand corner of the
refrigerator compartment.
Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or
of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before
or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction
may be used on disinfected waters that may contain
filterable cysts.
IMPORTANT: The disposable water filter should be replaced at
least every 6 months. If the water flow to the water dispenser or
ice maker decreases noticeably before 6 months have passed,
replace the water filter more often.
Replacing the Water Filter
To purchase replacement water filters, model UKF8001AXX-750
or model UKF8001AXX-200, contact your dealer or call
1-800-253-1301 U.S.A. or 1-800-807-6777 Canada.
IMPORTANT: Air trapped in the water system may cause water
and filter to eject. Always dispense water for at least 2 minutes
before removing the filter or blue bypass cap.
1. Turn filter counterclockwise to remove.
2. Remove sealing label from replacement filter and insert the
filter end into the filter head.
3. Turn the filter clockwise until it stops. Snap the filter cover
closed.
4. Flush the water system. See "Water and Ice Dispenser(s)."
NOTE: The dispenser feature may be used without a water filter
installed. Your water will not be filtered. If this option is chosen,
replace the filter with the blue bypass cap.

Can't get blue bypass cap off to put water filter


are you sure what you're turning is a bypass cap? KitchenAids don't usually have bypass caps.
If it is a bypass cap though, make sure you're turning to the left. It could be tougher because it's under pressure, so turn the water off going to the fridge and run the water out the dispenser if there is any.

Water and Ice have tasted like **** since we got the refrigerator (about 1 year ago) I believe the soultion is bypass the storage tank, but I can't find it..


When the Ice Smells
1. Replace water filters every 6 months to avoid musty odors from getting into your ice. If you don't replace the filters, they become clogged with the chemicals they have been removing from the water. In addition to smelly ice, you may see a drop in water pressure if you have a water dispenser, and possibly a decrease in ice cube size.
2. Remove the cap from the new filter.
3. Place the cartridge inside the holder, and twist to the right.

When the ice smells...water & ice have tasted like ***** also.

Good day : )

Are you sure about no bad caps? The top of the caps have to be completely flat, and bad caps can also look normal but can have high ESR, you will need meter that can read ESR of the caps.

Want to know when and how to replace water filter on a ge side by side refrig


Hello,

The water filter status light or indicator, present on some models, will help you know when to change your water filter. The light, or indicator, is located either on the temperature control panel in the refrigerator compartment or on the dispenser control panel on the freezer door.

The indicator will be one of two styles.

If the indicator is a light or series of lights, the light will change from green to yellow. This tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. It is recommended that you replace the filter when the status light changes to red or when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases.
If the indicator resembles a stack of bars, the bar height will decrease and the status display will change from "Good" to "Order." This tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. Replace the water filter cartridge when the water filter status display changes to "Replace" or when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases.
If a filter status light/indicator is not present, the filter should be changed at least once every 6 months. Your filter may need to be replaced more frequently depending on your usage and water quality.

If the water flow to the water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases before 6 months have passed, you may need to replace the water filter cartridge more often. Decreased water flow is a sign that the filter is clogged and needs to be replaced.

If the filter is clogged and you are not able to immediately replace it, remove the filter so the water system is in bypass mode. With the filter removed, the water system will continue to operate, bypassing the filter, and the clogged filter will not cause slow water dispensing or low ice production. However, in order to have filtered water, you will need to install a new filter.


The filter status display will help you know when to change your
water filter. When the display reads 10%, order a new filter. It is
recommended that you replace the filter when the display reads 10% OR when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases.

The filter should be replaced at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and usage.

Step 2
Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille.

Step 3
Pull the filter straight out.

Step 4

Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove it from the filter. IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter.

Step 5
Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and
turn the cap until it snaps into place.

Step 6
Remove the protective covers from the O-rings. Be sure the O-rings are still in place after the covers are removed.

Step 7
Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop back out when the filter is fully engaged.

Step 8
Flush the water system. Use a sturdy cup or glass. Depress and hold the
water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat this process until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever. Hold down for 5 seconds and then release for 5 seconds. Do this on/off process for about 2 minutes. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing

Hope this helpout in changing the water filter......

I have a 97 suburban that keeps burning the cap and rotor, When I replace them it runs great for about a month and then it starts missing and then within about 6 months it burns out and wont run. Thanks,...


Ive seen caps develop tracking, but cannot remember ever seeing one burn out...What does it look like when that happens? Also, I'll assume it is burning for now...have you tried a high quality cap & rotor like the blue ones made by Standard Motor Products? (they have a high dilectric# and can handle voltage far in excess of what a stock coil can produce.
