    If i remove the water filter can I just screw the cap back in place? I don't want the filter. I have a whole house system. Will it leak with out of the filter housing?
    For model number 10676239402
    Hello James, Thank you for your question. Yes, you can run your fridge without the filter in place. Just insert the cap as you normally would minus the filter. I hope this helps!

    Need a filter bypass because I installed a reverse osmosis. Can you help?
    For model number Ksbs25fjbl01
    Hello Ted, Thanks for your question. We are not showing a bypass for the filter available for your model. Your model may be able to bypass by just removing the water filter and cap. I hope this helps.

        I broke the old cap trying to turn the filter cc wise.
        I installed the new cap on a new filter, which I will install when the old filter needs replacing. No tools required, but it is sometimes difficult to turn the filter cc wise, when replacing.

        Drinking water dispenser was flowing very slowly.
        I first replaced the housing holding the water filter because during my effort to diagnose the problem I couldn't get the friction fittings to seal back up and they kept leaking. I hoped that replacing the filter housing would affect the flow problem but it didn't. I then replaced the valve. The replacement part was a little different in design than the original part but wasn't too difficult to figure out. My guess is that the original valve has some kind of electric solenoid that wasn't opening all the way. New value solved the problem. No special tools or techniques were required. Just had to unplug water lines and electrical connectors and figure out the way to plug the new valve in.
