Answer:

       Fridge filters are made by many different manufactures and most likely have a slightly different connection or could be made from a different material. As long as the model number is compatible with your fridge, it should work. Check and make sure that you purchased the correct model number before installing the filter.

      Sometimes you just need to apply more pressure onto the filter when installing it. If it seems like it is too tight to fit into the fridge, give it a bit more torque and it should pop into place. Sometimes, pushing the filter in a bit firmer before twisting it into place may help.

      You don’t want to damage your fridge or fridge filter connection, so if you have tried and it still won’t go into place, feel free to contact us.
