Water would come out unless you turn off the supply line. Also, release the pressure before removing filter.

Frigidaire FRS26HF6BW2 side by side Refrigerator, water out of valve ok with good pressure but no water enters the filter, unable to disconnect water line input to the filter to see if clogged. How to...


The plastic feed line from the inlet valve in the bottom right hand side of the back going up to the top left hand side feeds the filter. You can shut-off the water from the house tap, and then cut the plastic filter feed line in the middle somewhere, and install a john-guess coupling on the inlet valve end of the cut line. Then you can tip that line into a bucket, turn on the water tap and see if water comes out into the bucket, if it does, then proceed to the next step.
Sometimes the filter cartridge has a thin piece of plastic that remains on the cover, obstructing the water inlet ports in the filter housing. Always use a mfg.'s specified filter, not a Chinese "Knock-Off".

I cant find the filter on my hotpoint no frost refridg.number csx22gr where is it.


your model number doesn't come up.if it's an older machine some didn't come with water filters,you had to add an inline filter on the copper water line,you would run your copper,go down the cellar or behind the machine,cut the copper and the filter connects in between the copper where you cut the line.if you do have a filter it could be in the fridge section top right side or down in the bottom kickplate.i found your model the a was missing after the b baww.it doesn't show a filter,this is an older unit,check behind or in basement,wherever the water line goes and see if there's a filter added into it,if not you can cut the copper and add a filter yourself.home depot sells them

Even after replacing water filter there seems to be a reduction in water flow from door dispencer and Ice is small and sometimes hollow


The condition of the ice is also an indication of reduced water flow. There is a screen filter in the water line where the water supply connects to the water inlet valve. Take the line off and see if it's partially blocked. Cut the water off either at a shut off valve behind the fridge or under the sink or where ever your water comes from. Turn it back on and let it run into a pail to flush out the line.

Water leaking from fridge


Generally, this problem can be solved by replacing the water filter. The water filters have o-rings that self seal when installed. If you keep the same water filter to long those seals will start to leak. Fortunately for us, the water filter housing is right over the drip pan, and when it leaks it conveniently goes there.

To make sure take off the toe panel to the frig. If you have problems taking the toe panel off don't worry, they need to be yanked. Start on on side and really give it a tug. Once you get that off you will see how it clips in and you can remove the other side with ease.

Now, if it is not leaking currently, have someone get water from the dispenser while you are on the ground watching. You will be looking at the filter mind you, underneath the frig. You should be able to see it dripping right into the pan.

Now of course you could have another leak, but that is most likely what has happened. Passed that, you will have to see the leak to know what is leaking. You can get water from the dispenser, but if that doesn't work you will need to wait for the ice maker to make some ice. Then you can see if that is the problem.

To simply cut off the water supply to the ice maker you would just need to turn the ice maker to the off position. Then it would no longer ask for water :)

If you need anything else let me know! good luck!

Water takes a couple of seconds to come out and not making ice


Check the water supply lines feeding the refrigerator for crimps or hard turns and even if someone put a self taping tap valve as a shut off. They tend to restrict flow. If you find a tap valve remove it and have Tee placed there with a shutoff. It also does not hurt to pre-filter water going to the refrigerator. Lowes or Home Depot have some good in line filters that you just plug feed in one end and supply to fridge on other end. If it had air in the water you would have dripping all the time and noise of air rushing out once the dispenser valve is pressed. I am checking if your model has a filter somewhere. Have someone turn water off and disconnect the water feed from refrigerator and place lin in a pan or container and then have the turn it back on so you can visually see the flow. Disconnect power so if things get out of control water does not cover the electrical parts of the refrigerator. Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Water is leaking around the water filter area


take and shut off the water to the unit then take the filter base off so that you can see where the tubing goes into the filter. you may have to replace the tubing if it was cut during the move.

I need to bypass a filter in RS267LASH Samsung refrigerator


From the Samsung Online FAQ for my RF266AASH

Can I Use the Water Dispenser Without a Water Filter? spacer.gif The water and ice dispensers will work without an AquaPure water filter installed. The water filter housings are designed as rotary valves that allow the water to bypass the water filter whenever there is no filter or the filter is not in the lock position.
Models designed for use with the AquaPure water filter are shipped with a cap in place to cover the opening and keep it free of debris prior to the installation of the water filter. It is not necessary to have this cap in place for the unit to bypass the water nor is it intended to plug the housing to prevent leaks.
Note: This does not apply to the Quatro Convertible models. The filter must be installed on this model.

I had two (2) broken wires in the harness. I don't think you actually have to take the door off. It may be a little cramped working, but I think it can be done. Once you take off the bottom grill, find the end of the harness next to the water filter and unplug the white plug. Just below that is a ground wire. Remove the screw and take the green wire off. Then, next to that is a white "c-clip" holding the harness against the bottom of the refrigerator. Remove that clamp and you should have enough "play" to work on the harness. (It is probably a pain in the #*@ to remove the entire harness because it runs into a hole in the bottom of the door and then up through the door itself) You'll have to cut away the black mesh sleeve over the harness. I cut it with a pair of wire cutters as close to where the harness goes into the door as possible. There may also be a bit of black electrical tape at the end of the mesh closest to the white plug. Remove that, and you should be able to slide the mesh sleeve off, over the plug. This should reveal the broken wires. I just took some 12 gauge braided wire and cut a couple of pieces
