I don't have the manual for my fridge. Do I need to turn off the water before changing the water filter?
While it is recommended to turn the water off before changing the filter, it is not necessary to do so. The only reason it is recommended is incase the filter head does not close when the filter is pulled out, it will spray water everywhere.
