Cracked Housing Mount - water leak
Turned off the water. Removed the maintenance cover plate on the back of the refrigerator and disconnected the tubing. Removed the tubing cover plate on back of refrigerator. Removed two screws from filter hosing mount on the inside of the refrigerator and pulled the old tubing out. Simply inserted the new tubing and mounted the housing and reconnected the tubing using plumber’s pipe compound. Then re-installed the cover plates on the back of the refrigerator, installed the filter and turned on the water. It was a very easy install.

Water flow in door slow
Follow instructions about not over tightening the filter cartridge. Add the basic warnings about turning off the water and unplugging the refrigerator. You should also have something to wipe up the water that drains from the hose.The cover comes off when you squeeze it together and pull straight out. While you have the refrigerator out from the wall and the lower back cover off, vacuum the coils.

Filter Tube Assembly was Plugged
Turn-off water and disconnect main water line to inlet-tube.
Removed lower-back panel of the fridge with a screw driver and disconnected the hose with a small wrench to the main fridge water valve.

On th top-left, back of the fridge, removed screws to the small plate where the hoses enter for the water filter. In the fridge, removed the water filter, then removed the plastic panel above the filter - it snaps out. There are two screws to remove, then grasp and pull the assembly and hoses out. reverse the process for an easy install.

I was not able to put the small plate onthe back, top-left of the fridge back on. It's a tight fit and I didn't want to pinch the lines. Not doing that, though, may limit how your fridge rolls back to where it was, because the lines will stick-out a couple of inches.

Cracked the head by over tightening the water filter in2 it.
It was much easier than I had anticipated it was going 2B. All it intaled was 2 undue the 2 water lines w/a 1/2 inch wrench, take out the 2 screws on the top of the head on the inside of the refrigerator, then pull it out. I then just slipped the new head in, replaced the 2 screws, replaced the filter (definitely not overly tightening it this time) by putting some waterproof food grade grease, making it much easier 2 push up & turn. After, I went 2 the back of the refrigerator & reconnected the 1 line 2 the fridge & then the other 2 the water supply. "Walla" we were making ice again & able 2 get ice cold water again, also. The entire process took approximately 30 minutes 2 complete & that's bcuz of my limited disabilities. A younger person could probably be able 2 do it possibly faster.
