Most refs you will not need to open the access more then it allows. just push the button in fully to remove the filter. if that doesn't help the pressure will be keeping it in place. in that case please get water from the door. like two glass worth and that should release the pressure. then press button in again to release the filter. if that doest help you will need to turn the filter or twist it out. Please get back to me here and I will help you more. Thanks.
