Just finished remodeling the kitchen. My wife wanted to clean under the above fridge. Trip tray is groady. The only way I could see to get it out is to remove the filter assembly at the bottom left front of the fridge. I took out the screws for the filter assembly, but couldn't get it out as the hose connections in the back wouldn't allow it. So, I put it back in. But, now water drips from the two hose connections at the back of the filter assembly. There appear to be plastic hoses that go into rubber "grommits" that are part of the assembly. The hoses and "grommits" appear to be tight.
1) How do I remove the trip tray?
2) Is leaking from the hose connections of the filter assembly "normal", and if not, what's causing the leaks and how do I stop them?
