The filter head has likely plugged up. There are check valves in the filer head and a gran of charcoal could be stuck in one plugging it and stopping all water flow. If it worked just before changing it that is typically what happens. You can try a small screwdriver and push on the check valves to clear them if they do not the head has to be changed out for the filter. This happens a lot if you had a filter with a couple grains of charcoal in it floating around they push out and clog the small check valve ports on the fllter head.

All I ask is...Please remember to use the RATING LINK ON YOUR PAGE by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today. Even though you paid the site they will not disburse any part of it to me until you supply a good rating. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.

Then you would need a new filter head for the refrigerator.
