If you don't replace your refrigerator water filter, a dirty filter will not only restrict water flow, but it will also leave garbage in your drinking water or ice cubes.

Common installation errors

If your refrigerator water filter isn't running smoothly, here are some common installation mistakes you might make:

1. The protective cover of the new water filter has not been removed. Always remember to remove the protective cover before installing a new water filter.
2. I forgot to flush the filter. Many people don't flush the filter before installing a new one, but it shouldn't be forgotten.
3. The reusable knob of the base grill filter is generally thrown away, but should not be thrown away as it can be used later.

Ever run into any of these currently listed issues? Now is the time to fix the problem!

After changing the filter, there is no water coming out of the refrigerator

If this happens, the refrigerator water filter is most likely not all broken. If you still have problems, it may be the water valve to the refrigerator. To check, the old filter must be reinstalled. If the water is not coming out of the new filter but from the old filter, there is no problem with the water valve, but the problem is with the installation of the new filter. If water is not coming out of the old filter or the new filter, there is a problem with the water valve.

Small leaks or drips after filter installation

If this happens, there may still be air in the line. Press the dispenser water level down for two minutes until the water begins to flow freely.

Refrigerator filter installation or removal is difficult
Sometimes you just need a little extra power. When disassembling, sometimes pulling the filter down and out is the problem. What should work is shaking the filter sideways when pulling down. TIP: The top shelf of the refrigerator should be removed from the refrigerator. This is done because it can cause damage from a sudden release. When installing, apply more force and keep turning the locked position.

Water tastes different
A filter as a refrigerator is designed to remove chemicals and contaminants from the water without adding to the water's taste. If the filter you're replacing is old, you'll likely notice a change in the taste of the water because you're drinking more efficient, better-filtered water now.

The filter appears to be clogged before changing the filter
Your refrigerator water filter may not last a full six months (this is according to industry recommended standards), also depending on water quality and usage. If the water flow starts to slow down, your filter may be clogged and may need to be replaced. If there is a sudden drop in water quality, a water quality test must be done to determine the problem. This is because it can be caused by several other factors or situations. This can also be done by you. You can even ask your municipal water supplier for this information.
