How do I remove the threaded tip of the Aqua-Pure filter cartridge AP217 which broke off inside the Aqua-Pure filter housing in our residential kitchen? It broke off when I was unscrewing the housing and I cannot get it out.
Although frustrating, removing the broken tip should be easy if you follow these steps:
- Heat the tip of a screwdriver on your stove.
- Insert the heated screwdriver in the center of the filter cartridge tip that is stuck.
- Allow the screwdriver (and cartridge tip) time to cool a bit.
- Turn the broken portion of the cartridge tip, it should unscrew without issue.
