Where is the water filter on a 1997 side by side Roper

I need to know where the water filter is and how to replace it. Mine is a model RS22AQXFN00. The ice maker is filling very slow and the water comes out slow too.

Filters located in the base grille of your refrigerator
These filters have a reusable knob. Hold the knob and make a 1/4 turn to the left. Pull the old filter out. Replace the knob on the new filter from PartSelect.com. Once the new filter is inserted, turn the knob a 1/4 turn to the right to lock it into place.

Filters with a push-button filter
This filter is located in the base grille. Press the large button next to the filter. The filter will pop out so you can grasp it. Pull the filter out and replace it with a new one from PartSelect.com. Push the filter back in until it clicks. Remember to take the cap off of the old filter and put it on the new replacement filter.

Slide out filter.
The cartridge is located in the front of the refrigerator compartment. Open the compartment and remove the filter. Replace with the new filter from PartSelect.com and slide the compartment back into place.

Filters with housings
Some filters are located in a round plastic housing. You may need a wrench if the filter was put in very tight. Once the housing is removed replace the filter inside with a new one from PartSelect.com and reinsert the housing and new filter in your refrigerator.

**It is very important for you to flush a couple of gallons of water through your new filter. Most refrigerator water filters are made of carbon, and some carbon residue is present in the first gallon or two of water. This will leave a bitter taste and residue in your water.**

Find your water filter

Hope this may help you;

Regards,

Ice Maker very slow to make ice. In weeks time, with minimal use, ice hasn't covered the agitator.


Mine doesn't but they do warn that low water pressure will slow down the cube maker.

Why is the water on my kenmore refrigerator coming out so slow?


I do not know the unit but it sounds like the water filter has plugged. Just replace the filter and the problem will go away. The ice maker can fill very slowly and you would not notice it.

Thanks for the model number. The water control valve=> W10245167 Water Inlet Valve will need replaced when this happens.

Cold water hose connection filter clogged up - how to clean out


Are you referring to the conical shaped screen in the end of the hose that connects to the water supply? If so, it can be removed using a sharp pointed instrument such as a small screwdriver. Then it can be cleaned by flushing it from the back side.

Water leaking from water filter/housing


Hi,
How old is the filter and are you using the correct filter? After markets don't seal well, and an old filter can leak.
You can remove the filter and use the dispenser to determine if just the filter is the issue, the housing has a by-pass system and works without a filter in it, just would filter water without a filter.
Give that a try, let me know if you need more help.

I have a side by side refrigerator & the water filter light is red & the filter needs to be changed. The refrigerator was manufactured 11/04 model # ED26HEXNQ00. I don't know what kind of...


The light will just come on based on time not on if the filter is really need to be changed, you can push and hold the button to reset it, and another six months or so it will light up again. I do not have the same model as you, but mine is in side the ref. top right side, others are on the water line in back.
I have two filters before the refrigerator on mine still go's off I just reset it. If the filter is really needing to be replaced your water would slow to a trickle.

Icemaker has always been slow. It produces ice, just a couple or 3 times a day. We have to keep our old fridge running just to get enough ice... Cubes are full size, freezer is 0 degrees, not much...


Hi,
The main reason behind an icemaker to make ice slow is the freezer temperature. It needs to be below 10 degrees. Also check the water inlet valve. Water is controlled by a timer and if its obstructed or slow filling, it will not make ice. You could also have a bad motor, defrost heater, or sensor. If these items fail, it usually won't make any ice. Check to be sure the electric plug from the ice maker is plugged in and check the water flow. However if it is filling up with water or if it just has a small amount in the cube maker. If it's making some ice, it's probably not a defrost problem. Check the voltage to the fill valve. Also replace the freezer's water filter, as clogged filters block water flow. Set the ice maker arm to "Off," and then twist the hanging filter cup counterclockwise to remove it. Rinse the cup under running water and discard the old filter cartridge inside. Slide a new filter cartridge into the cup and reinstall the cup assembly in the freezer.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

The ice maker dose not fill up with water.


Have you checked/changed your water filter? A bad water filter will stop/slow the flow of the water to your ice maker. Are you still able to get water from the dispenser? If you are, then it could be a bad ice maker, or the fill tube could be frozen, which is the main tube where the water comes in. This could also be a bad water valve inlet.
