How To Install The RPWF Filter:
- Remove old cartridge by gently lifting the filter away from housing until first release, and then lift again to remove.
- Align top of filter with cartridge holder and push until cartridge is fully seated.
- While continuing to ensure cartridge is fully seated in the holder, gently rotate the filter (inward for BF models and downward for SxS models) until it can no longer rotate.
- Run water from the dispenser (approximately 2 gallons or about 5 minutes) to clear any particles and remove air from the system.
Refrigerator Water Filter Tip #4:
