How to remove or bypass pure source 2 water filter housing on frigidaire gallery

Bought the refrigerator in 2004. Been a good product but never have liked the pure source 2 filtration system. Mainly because I installed "reverse osmosis" system on supply (main) when I built my house. Also have 3 stage in line after the "RO" going to kitchen only. Last time I changed the Pure Source 2 filter cartridge, the gromlet on the filter (in front on the o-ring) had broken into my filter housing. Tried defrosting and most everything besides drilling it out. I am wondering if I just bypass the filter all together and install 1/4" tube couplings if any electrical components (solenoids, level control valves, etc) would be effected. Any body tried this yet??

Frigidaire refrigerators water filters are located in the refrigerator section on the top right side. I didn't see one listed for your unit. There are in line filters available you can install on the water supply from the house. Good luck.

Leaking pure source 2 ice and water filter


Hi-

Three things

  • Water supply valve may not be completely open.
    Open valve completely.
  • Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough.
    Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
  • Water filter may need changing.
    If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
Hope this help

Thanks for using Fixya!

What problems have you encountered with newly designed Pure Source 2 water filter


I spoke with Frigidaire's Customer Service [(706)860-4110] and they said that the filter was redesigned. A customer needs to get a "service flash" number from the customer service representative. The rep will also provide you with local repair companies who will use the service flash number in order to get reimbursed by Frigidaire for fixing/updating the customer's refrigerator... at no charge to the customer.

I installed a new PureSource2 filter a month ago. The taste of my water improved and all was fine. Last week a chemical taste began to build and then it became undrinkable. I bought a new filter and...


Search for "how to remove ammonia from tap water" and also for "ammonia added to drinking water". You''l find information, about Chlorine, Chloramines, and Ammonia as different ways to treat water. There is suggestion for ammonia which was to let some water sit for a while to try to off-gas the ammonia. I'd use a glass pan to avoid any metal contamination/confusion for the before/after smell tests. There are kits to test the water.

But first line some facts up
1. Get a water report from the water company to see what naturally occurring minerals are in the source of water and how much of that is removed and what is used to remove it, and, how it compares with local and national standards.
2. Use the water kits, if need be, to confirm these reports.
3. Look at the water filter labels or go to the product's website. There are different levels of purification some these water filters provide. Prices go up correspondingly. I would be surprised if a filter "added" taste. Removing some contaminates might reveal other masked tastes. These filters also recommend the number of hours to be used; the ones with higher removal capability have shorter hours. I'd expect 1-2 years of use.
4. Other solutions:
- use the bypass cap that came with your frig in place of a filter for a before and after taste test.
- use a Brita pitcher.
- look into using a whole house cartridge based system (not water softeners) to get good smelling water everywhere. Replace cartridge(s) annually. Note: I would bypass the outside water bibs for lawn and pool; why use pure water to water the lawn?

Hope this helps.
Ultimately your water source is the problem source.

The water and ice tases and smells bad. New coil and filter.


Replace the water supply line with plastic tubing or copper. Do not use the braided metal or vinyl line as they will cause an odor problem.
