Filter Replacement
The contaminants or other substances removed or reduced by
this water filter are not necessarily in all users' water.
Filter life varies depending on local water conditions and the
volume of water used. We recommend that you change this
filter every 6 months. However, it can be replaced earlier if
there is a drop in flow rate at the refrigerator's water dispenser
(if present) or if the ice maker's performance deteriorates.
Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of
unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after
the system.

Troubleshooting Guide

Water leaks at connections: Push tubing in as far as it will
go. If leaking continues, shut off water at the original valve
and remove water line by pushing in on the connector collar
while pulling the tubing away. See, "Using Push-In Fittings".
Inspect tubing for cracks and scratches. If tubing is cracked
or scratched, simply cut that portion away and reinsert tubing
into push in fitting.
Make sure tubing is cut straight. If not, recut.
