Trying to find out how to replace the water filter housing. Is it done from the rear of the refrigerator? the panel on the front does not allow the old one to come out.
Answer Pete, Once you remove the filter, filter cap, and kick plate grille from the bottom front of the refrigerator, remove the two screws that attach the filter housing to the refrigerator frame. Slide the filter housing out the front of the unit enough to detach the water tubes, and allow wate water is left in the filter or tubes to drain into a small bucket.
I have a side by side fridge which has the kind of water filter you replace by turning the knob a quarter turn, pulling out and replacing. I think during cleaning I turned it once and turned it back by accident. Now when I want to change the filter I cannot move the knob.
Answer Hello Kelti,
Open both doors and remove the kick panel. Now remove the decorative filter cover. Now the end of the filter is exposed. If you cannot turn it, you can use a pair of pliers to get the old filter out. To re-install the kick panel, be sure to open both doors. This makes it much easier.
I have a kitchenaid superba refrigerator and I dont know where the water filter is located. I need to replace it.
Answer Hello John! The water filter on your model KSRB27FHSS02 is located on the bottom front of the refrigerator. Open the door and remove the front grille on the bottom of the unit, this is the best way to access the filter. Replace the filter with our part number 4396508. Thanks!
i need to remove the filter housing to access a cracked drain pan. how do i remove the water lines from the back of the housing? do they screw out?
Answer Jeff, The fittings on the filter housing are "john guess" compression fittings. To remove the tubes, press down / in on the gray ring that surrounds the tube, and pull the tube out. To install the tube, Press down/in on the ring, insert the tube as far in as possible, release the ring, and tug out on the tube lightly, to insure the tube is sealed and locked in place. Thanks and Good Luck
