I can't remove the old Frigidaire Refrigerator Water filter. It says "Twist to remove" but it's stuck and am not able to twist. I bought a new PureSource RG-100 and ready to replace the filter. Can you help?

SOURCE: I am installing a reverse

i know such thing exist but i am having a hard time finding a part number for it. A alternative would be to in essence bypass the ref.filter this way.
The water line on the back of the refrig where the house plumbing connects to feeds directly into the filter first then out of the filter into the water valve to be dispensed to icemaker and door could connect the water supply from the RO system directly to the water valve instead of connecting the RO to the inline refrig filter.

Model PLHS267ZA ice maker does not fill with water. Water dispenses from door ok. Frozen inlet? How can I cycle the ice maker to try to fill with water?

Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire refrigerator's icemaker is not filling with water and it is still dispensing from the door. Sometimes if the filter is bad water may still dispense but will not make ice. It is recommended to change out the water filter every six to nine months.

You can also pull the refrigerator out from the wall and check the fill tube to make sure it is not frozen. The fill tube is a green line that connects to the upper right corner of your refrigerator. Make sure to turn off the water before checking the line. You should be able to grab the line and twist 45 degrees counter clockwise to pull the tube out. Check and make sure no ice has formed, if ice has built up inside of the line hold the tube in your hand for three to five minutes to loosen it out and remove it. To reinstall the tube insert it back and twist it 45 degrees clockwise. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

My Frigidaire ultrawf water filter will not stay installed after it clicks

Hi- not sure if it will help but I had issues getting it out. What I found is the plastic casing (fridge) needed a little twist/push. Play with it- hold the filter in and GENTLY push/pull/twist slightly the fridge housing.

I can not get the filter holder to twist off.. It seems to be stuck

Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your water filter holder is stuck and will not come off of your Frigidaire refrigerator. I see you have the Pure Source filter and after reviewing that it does not appear to have a filter holder. To remove that filter you should have to push it in and it should discharge. If it is not doing so, I would push it in and turn it slightly to remove it. If you are still having trouble with your filter removal could you provide me with your model number please? You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside of your refrigerator normally on the right hand wall. I look forward to assisting you. -Matt

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.

Amana model# SZD23VE refrigerator were is the water filter? or does it even have a water filter?

Yes it has a water filter option. The water filter housing is in the refrigerator near the top of the unit. You need to twist the old filter itself to the left to remove. (You will be removing a cover that you need to take off the old filter and put on the new filter. This cover can also be replaced without a filter to bypass the filter. The part number for the filter is AP4310541, .

I hope this helps.
