Water filter stuck on my Kenmore Fridge

Anybody know how to remove the water filter on a Kenmore Elite Coldspot fridge? Model # is 106.52699100. I tried the "twist and turn" action to remove the filter, but it seems stuck. No button to push for any release either.

    I have the same problem with my Jenn Air french door fridge. When I first got it I could not get the blue cap off to put in the filter. Had to have the Maytag repair man come out and do it.

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!

    I have a Kenmore Coldspot and re the water filter - getting it out isn't a problem, it's getting one back in. I have had to use a pair of pliers to apply sufficient force to turn the filter. RIGHT NOW - I am trying to change a filter BUT I can't get the new one to turn.The filters are NOT precision made.

My Kenmore Elite Trio Fridge is leaking water from under the front of the machine. It is not the water connection. Do you know what the problem might be?

Your defrost drain tube is probably clogged with ice or something. Defrost your refrigerator (put towels around to soak up any excess water), then after it's defrosted, take off the back, lower panel and look for a 1 inch diameter tube coming down from your refrigerator. Remove it and clear out any blockages and then re-assemble everything.

Good luck!

Kenmore Coldspot refrigerator Model #57282791 no water from dispenser

When was the last time you changed the fridge water filter. Sounds like its blocked if no water is coming out of the hose at the bottom front. Also depending on the fridge design two other culprits are possible.the electric switch that is pressed that cativates the water valve to open and let water pass and the second the water valve itself. I would lean toward the water valve at the back of the fridge, as you said it was getting worse over time u til it just stopped.
