I have a KitchenAid standalone ice maker model KUIX305ESS1 and i can't remove the water filter. The filter will not turn all the way to the unlock position. I have removed the cover from the filter housing but I am still unable to remove. It looks like I will need to disconnect the water input lines from each side of the filter housing and remove both the housing and the filter. I'm hoping I can get some advise on how to separate the filter from the housing and not mes up the water line connectivity to the filter housing, not sure how to remove ? Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

Jeff,

Thanks for your reply, that is the same conclusion I have come to. Just wondering how to get the two apart ?

Why bother if they both get replaced. Just have to disconnect the water lines from the filter head.

I recently replaced the water filter and water filter housing on this model. The filter was stuck in the housing so I had no choice but to replace both. Now when i turn the ice maker back on, it cycles and produces an alarm or loud noise. I have checked and water is coming to the unit and filter, but no water is running through the unit and draining as normal. Any suggestions ? Where would i get a service diagnosis manual ?

Interesting, I don't know, I don't work on StandAlone ice makers and Jeff is taking time off.

I can ask our tech bigbick if he has the tech data sheet or service manual.
