This filter cup and housing assembly is all white in color. The filter is not included in this housing assembly.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First I turned off the water source to the filter. I then removed the insulation housing for the filter cup using a nutdriver to remove the screw holding it. Next I removed the two screws attaching the filter cup to the refrigerator wall with the nut driver. The most difficult part was detaching the water tubings from the filter cup, it was a matter of sliding the connector in the right direction. I then installed the new filter cup reversing the procedure I followed to remove the old filter cup and insulation housing. My husband was pretty impressed and was especially happy with the repair savings.......it only cost him a dinner out not a $75 to $100 service fee.

I had to replace this unit after a repair by the local appliance repairman. The thermostat/ damper control failed and the refrigerator section of a side by side froze up.As far as installing this unit it goes as follows.1.) You may want to turn off the water supply to the unit just as a safety.2.) Remove the two screws holding the unit to the back of the refrigerator.3.) Disconnect the two lines noting which one goes where. A simple pulling of the hose connection sleeve ( pull toward the hose ) will release the hose's4.) Reverse the process and turn the water back on. Check for any leaks and re-attach to the back wall.
The actuator was easy . . . just remove 6 screws (3 outside and 3 inside) and pull out assembly. The actuator popped out and I replaced it.The water filter replacement was easy once I figured out how to use the quick connect fittings from the tube to the water filter assembly (see Youtube).
First I turned off the water supply to the frig and raised the bar in the ice make to stop the production of ice. I used the nut driver to remove 3 screws from the housing. I removed the connections from the two water lines & removed the broken housing. I attached the water lines to the new housing and then screwed it back into the refrigerator. I replaced the filter and screwed the filter cup into the housing. Turned on water & ice maker, then ran water thru the door dispenser to check to see if I had done it correctly. No leaks !!! Yeah....I was done !!!
just removed the screws, pulled off the hose and replaced with the new ones. So easy and saved about $175.00 doing it ourselves. (That was the best part)
I removed the old housing (three screws) , pulled it out about three inches and discounnected the two water lines. Then I put the new one on, attached the two water lines & I had water immediately & ice within a couple of hours.Really it was a no brainer, but I'm sure I saved at least $50 doing it myself.
I picked up this fridge at a yard sale for 75.00 and still had the price tag on it 910.00. What a deal. When I placed the fridge in the garage as a second fridge I said to myself this thing has an icemaker so I'm going to hook it up. After pluming all the connections and hitting the water button on the outside holy tsunami in the fridge after I just cleaned the whole thing. Now I was at a loss burnt half the day pluming this thing and now I was on a mission. I went online to see if I could get parts and sure enough this website came up. Like all the other post says all you need is a nut driver to remove the old and replace with the new. One thing that I kind of messed up on I didn’t know which line was in and this is marked on the top of the new Filter Cup and Housing Assembly and there was a brown connector and a white connector. The brown connector in the in and the white is the out. One last thing I usesd a flat head screw driver to pop the water lines off. I tried by hand but they would not pop off. This bad boy was making ice in about 2 hours. Very fast shipping and very easy repair. Thanks!
Filter housing assembly removes easily. Two screws removed prior to removing water connections. Replace water connections prior to screwing new assembly into place. Original support studes were old and shattered - easy to remove (careful not to crack the side wall of the fridge when trying to remove). Ensure pin is removed from new support studs prior to installing on side. Once in place, insert pins flush to ensure studs in place.
three screws out after turning off the water supply remove 2 hoses from top of the system replace the system and then the cover with the 3 screws all was good to go after the 2 hoses were popped back on and the water turned on at valve this would have been way faster if my husband ley me do it haha he kept dropping the screws so we had to pull all drawers out to find 10 max
first removed three screws holding cover un snap water lines remove two screws holding filter housing up reinstalled new parts
turned ice maker water off.Removed housing with 1/4" nut driver.disconnected water lines that had quick disconnect.(pushed bottom plastic washer up & popped off.unscrewed old filter cup off with nutdriver. Screwed new one in place,put filter in cup & screwed on,pushed water lines on.put housing back on & turned water on. No leaks & had my ice maker back in working order,also my water on front door.was easier than expected.lady was very helpful when ordering cause I was worried it may not be same one cause was slight difference in appearance.but it matched up to model number & ended fitting just fine,also was shipped very quick,1 day & it was at my door.nice to have ice again,thanks part select.
I unscrewed the broken filter cup and screwed the new one in. :) Part was shipped promptly.
Remove filter housing cover (one 1/4" hex screw). Remove the quick disconnect water lines. Replace filter housing with new (two 1/4" hex screws). Reconnect water lines. Reinstall cover.
removed the 2 screws then the housing. Then i removed the 2 hoses that are connected to the filter cup.Replaced it with the new one then i connected the water filter .
My dad actually did the repair when I wasn't around but he said it was a piece of cake. He first just tried to replace the cup portion but ended up removing the entire filter housing. He found a large crack on the part that the cup screwed in to. His recommendation is to make sure that the water to the fridge is turned off so that it doesn't leak all over the place while you change out the parts.
