We have a Sears...

We have a Sears Kenmore Pro refrigerator. I just switched the water filter that goes to the icemaker. Now the water dispenser is leaking, whereas it had not done so before. I noticed that the new filter that I installed seems to fit very loosely in the housing for it. Should I go get another filter and try that?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is about 18 months old. I will go get the model for you.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

The fridge is 795.79983.510. If the work is simply to get a new filter and insert it, yes, I will do it myself. It is under warranty, so more than that, and I will call Sears.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I think not.

Try to put the old filter back in and see if it still leaks. If it stops leaking with the old filter in, definitely get a new one. The water filter is part number ADQ36006102 if you need to make sure you got the right one.

Other than that, if it leaks even with the old filter in, then your filter receptacle is just not sealing up and the filter receptacle would need to be replaced on the refrigerator unfortunately.
