Kenmore side by side filter is stuck HELP!
 
I have a Kenmore refrig/freezer and the filter in the bottom of the freezer is stuck. We push the button and try to pull the old filter straight out like the directions say but it won't budge. I don't want to pay $70 just to have a repair man come out to change a filter that already cost $60. Can anyone help? :eek:

Thanks

Thanks
 
All I needed to do was push the release button while pulling the filter away from the button and outward. Worked as soon as I tried it. Thanks again for the site. Great help and saved me at least $75.00 for service call.
