KitchenAid Refrigerator Water Filter: Five Steps to replace it

Owning a KitchenAid refrigerator water filter can be very beneficial. This is especially if you are concerned about the general safety of your family and in particular, what kind of water they drink.

However, there are several things that you need to keep in mind when selecting a refrigerator that comes with a built-in water filtration system. One of these is replacing the filter at the recommended time so they will still perform and provide safe and pure drinking water like when you first purchased it.

Regular replacement of the filter will also ensure you get rid of the contaminants that contribute to the bad odor and poor condition of water.

Here are 5 simple steps that you need to follow in replacing your KitchenAid refrigerator water filter:

1. The first step is to check the display of the filter status, as this will aid you in ascertaining when to replace your water filter. As soon as you see “10 percent” on the display, then this is the time to order a new filter. It is even better if you already have a spare replacement cartridge at this time because the manufacturer recommends you change the filter as soon as you see the 10 percent on the display.

Another indication that your filter needs changing is the decrease of the water flow to your icemaker or your water dispenser. The recommended interval for filter replacement is after every six months depending on the usage and the quality of your water.

2. You then need to push the eject button so that the filter can be released from its base grille. After this, you need to pull out the filter by turning the cap anti-clockwise. It is very important that you keep the cap, as this will also be used on your replacement filter.

3. You need to align the cap’s ridge with the new filter’s arrow and then turn the cap until you can hear it snap into its proper placement. Then, you need to get the covers from the O-rings of your replacement cartridge. In doing this, make sure the O-rings are still in their proper position.

4. Press the replacement filter cartridge right into the base grille. You will know that you have fully installed the filter when the eject button pops out again.

5. Once your replacement KitchenAid refrigerator water filter is in place, you need to flush your refrigerator’s water system by using a glass and pressing the lever of the water dispenser for five seconds before releasing it. This process should be repeated until free flow of the water ensues.
