Changing the Water Filter
The water filter is located in the base grille below the freezer compartment door. It is not necessary to remove the base grille to remove the filter.
Remove the filter by pressing the eject button and pulling straight out on the filter cap.
Avoid twisting the cap when removing the filter because this could cause the cap to come off. If this occurs, replace the cap and pull the filter straight out.
There will be water in the filter. Some spilling may occur.
Remove the cap by turning it counterclockwise until it stops.
Do not discard the cap. It is part of your refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter.
Take the new cartridge out of its packaging and remove the protective cover from O-rings.
Place the cap (removed in Step 2) on the new filter. Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the filter. Turn the cap clockwise until it snaps into place.
Push the new filter into the opening in the base grille. As the filter is inserted, the eject button will depress. The eject button will pop back out when the filter is fully engaged.
Pull gently on the cap to check that the filter is securely in place.
Flush the water system.
