Tell me,the filter is it brazed on or is it on with a copper nut?
If you fix a filter remember that silver solder gets real hard if its exposed to cold air the hole time.

Let me know and i can help you with this problem..

We are contemplating buying a samsung fridge However we currently have a whirlpool with the water filter on it. How would we disconnect the water filter currently installed to connect a new samsung fridge?


I'm not sure I understand your question, so forgive me if I'm incorrect. I'm confused as to wether your whirlpool has an internal filter or if you have an external stand-alone unit.

I have a samsung refridgerator and the water filter is inside the fridge located at the back on the upper right. In fact, all Samsung RAF/AES models come with this internal filter. Depending on where you buy it, often times the delivery guys will set it up for free. They will simply disconnect your old fridge, remove it , reconnect the water hose to your new Samsung and be on their way.

If you choose to do it yourself, simply remove the old fridge, follow the hose to under your sink and remove the old one. Run the new house by attaching it to the appropriate place on your sink and over to the back of the fridge. Also, many modern homes have a cold water tap behind the fridge, so you might be able to connect it there if you do.

Either way, whether you have an external unit or inyernal hose

Water and ice taste bad


How long has it been since you replaced the filter in the waterline, or in the refrigerator section waterline? This filter is to be replaced usually every six months. This filter is usually a canister about the size of a car oil filter and is usually located in the upper right side of the fridge. May be hidden by a plastic shield over the light. Replacing this filter should eliminate your problem. Remember to read the instructions that come with the new filter as to filling it with water before installing or not and the purge time or amount before using it for drinking, to flush any particulate out of the new filter. Usually 60 seconds of running water from door in to a glass and dumping that water...or run water into a glass til it dispenses clear water. Remember to turn off the water to the fridge and have a towel handy when replacing the filter. Some refrigerators have a function where by when you unscrew the old filter it automatically shuts off the water, but I would not trust that to actually work...Ha!

The water line in my Kenmore side by side fridge broke in the door how do i remove the inside panel to replace the line??


It's a shot...but if I recall correctly the rubber seal thats between the door and the fridge can be peeled back or removed, and underneath are the screws that hold the inside panels on...

I would peel the seal back a little at a time until I actually locate a screw...then once located... I would feel more confident about the removal of the entire seal. Keep in mind the seal is much easier to remove than to replace...I used baby oil in some place to replace the seal...Good Luck!

Kenmore side-by-side not dispensing ice or water, the ice maker has been replaced, no water going into the tray. I cannot locate the water filter, does this model have one?


Don't know what is the model number of your fridge. 1.Need check electric water valve under the fridge. If that fridge made by GE (Kenmore just a Sears brand name and they use several others manufacturers for refrigeration), usually it's a frozen plastic water supply line inside freezer door. You could unplug fridge for 24 hours (you have to put food from freezer to other freezer).

The freezer is cold, but the fridge stays around 40 degrees, and the unit keeps running continuously


The evaporator fan motor may be about to seize and is running to slowly to cool the fridge, cost about ($30).

Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Available from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
Unplug fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan spins the same direction (CW OR CCW) as your old one, if you don't know which way it should spin then be sure it pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.

How do i remove the water filter


The filter will come out attached to the cover .. look inside the cavity . there should be a space there for the filter .. the ones at the top of the fridge are quite small compared to the ones that go at the bottom on some fridges. Most appliance or building supply stores will have replacement filters on hand .. have your make and model number to get the correct replacement., or the old filter ..

Kenmore Fridge - Bad Testing Water


Your refrigerator definitely has a water filter. If you have gone 5 years without replacing the filter, you and your family have probably been drinking contaminated water, for some time. Water filters should be replaced every three to six months. On some refrigerators, and in cases of higher water consumption, the filter must be changed every 60 days. Sears sells replacement filter cartridges for Kenmore refrigerators.

The water filter on your refrigerator is located at the front base of the unit, in the grille, below the freezer door. There, you will see a round cap. Turn the cap counter-clockwise, until the handle is vertical.Then, pull it out of the grille. The filter cartridge is attached to the cap. After removing the cap and filter, slide the cap off from the existing filter cartridge. Slide the cap on to a new cartridge, and re-insert with the cap handle in a vertical position. Push it in, firmly. Then, turn the cap clockwise, until the cap handle is horizontal.

Bad water & ice cube taste


then change your filter. the new filter could be different with the old filter. check the new filter, see if there is odor removal and taste removal with it.

if not then get the filter with carbon filter, odor and taste removal.

then with a new filter, run about 5 gallons of water before using the water for drinking.

Replace door


The fridge should have come with a card that looks like a credit card to remove the handles.  There are directions in the manual on how to do this.  If you don't have the card then use a sturdy card like a drivers license.
