About the water filter cartridge
Chlorine, Taste and Odor
The water filter cartridge is located in the upper right-hand corner of
the fresh food compartment, right below the temperature controls.
The filter cartridge should be replaced every six months or earlier if
the flow of water to the water dispenser or icemaker decreases.
Installing the Filter Cartridge
1
If you are replacing the cartridge, first remove the old one by
slowly turning it to the left. Do not pull down on the cartridge.
About an ounce of water will drip down. Place a cloth beneath
the filter to catch any water dripping during replacement.

Place the top of the cartridge up inside
the cartridge holder and slowly turn
it to the right.
Slowly turn it to the right until the filter cartridge stops. DO NOT
OVERTIGHTEN. As you turn the cartridge, it will automatically
raise itself into position.
Run water from the dispenser for 1 minute (about a half
gallon) to clear the system and prevent sputtering.
NOTE: A newly-installed water filter cartridge may cause water to
spurt from the dispenser.
Filter Bypass Plug
You must use the filter bypass plug when a replacement filter
cartridge is not available. The dispenser and icemaker will not
operate without the filter or filter bypass plug.
