I was trying to change out the filter on my 4-door refrigerator.  I must have turned it in the wrong direction.  I heard something pop.  Now the new filter will not lock in place.  What do I do?

Hi there, Thanks so much for reaching out about this. I can certainly understand your concern with your new filter not installing properly. The good news is, this can likely be resolved with a few easy steps. I'm providing a link below that will walk you through what to do to get your new filter installed correctly. 


Once these steps are completed, if the new filter still will not lock into place, the unit will require service. There are a few options here we can take based on your warranty status.
