Tried to replace the water filter with a new MWF filter. Fits in snugly, and securely. About halfway through the turn, the water starts running... keeps filling up the filter until its basically blowing out the top. I untwist it and there is a *lot* of pressure buildup. Any idea whats going on? Thanks, ~ Sarah


ANSWER Sarah, If you get the water filter fully seated and it is spraying out of the top then the issue would be a bad seal on the water filter head. If you only put it at halfway then there is a chance for it to spray out. The pressure is built up because the pressure from the air that is not in the line has not been relieved and in order to relieve this air pressure you would need to run the dispenser and purge approximately 4 gallons of water through the dispenser.
