The water filter (LT 500P) on my refrigerator (LG LSC26905TT) needs replacement. I am unsure as to how to remove it from it's fitting in the fridge. The LG owners manual has no information on how to remove it. The filter will move about a quarter turn before reaching a stop in both the clockwise and counter clockwise directions leading me to believe that it is not on a threaded track. I obviously do not want to break the filter or its housing so any input would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Water filter replacement
Fm, it's not threaded, turn it counter clockwise until it stops (should hear a click), then pull it out. Push the new one in all the way and turn it clockwise, you should hear it snap in. You may have to use a little force. If you are still having trouble, give them a call at 1-877-714-7481. Catriver.

The filter will come out attached to the cover .. look inside the cavity . there should be a space there for the filter .. the ones at the top of the fridge are quite small compared to the ones that go at the bottom on some fridges. Most appliance or building supply stores will have replacement filters on hand .. have your make and model number to get the correct replacement., or the old filter ..
locate water filter bracket(normally in fridge compartment), then use screwdriver to remove from the frame. You will see two plastic pipes connected to this bracket. one will be water in and the other water out. pull the two off the bracket and join them together. (be inventive). Connect your RO system to the main inlet after original water supply is removed. Remember, your "filter to be replaced" light will still flash after a period as the fridge has its own software, counting depressions for cartridge replacement. (you would painstakingly have to reset.}
The effort it would take to eliminate filter would be too much. Just leave filter in place. If new house filter is working right you should never have to replace fridge filter and your water will be double-filtered :)
When the filter freezes up, the outside casing may have cracked and will leak water when you dispense water through the door. You will need to have the filter replaced and that should take care of the problem. But the filter should never have frozen in the 1st place. You will need to call a qualified LG technician to see what's going on inside the refrigerator.
