Fridigidaire FRS6R5EMBD I replace my water filter regularly but after replacing this last time I noticed discoloring of the tubing down at the bottom of the refrigerator in the coiled up portion that serves as the resevoir. Is this danerous.

I don't think it is dangerous but it could be water minerals that was not filtered by your filter. sediments that is in the water that have settled at the lower part of the tubing.. if you can replace the coils of tubing then it would be much better.

My Keurig will only drip water when brewing. I've descaled, changed the filter, machine is only year and a half old.


#1. Use the paper clip trick on both top and bottom punchers. The holes are in the side of the punchers. (lots of video in youtube) #2. Descale it again with vinegar and leave it for 15-24 hrs before brew rinsing, (instead of 4 hours as mentioned on the manual) #3 some said, turning it upside down and giving it a shake, #4. visibly check the screen on the the water reservoir tank entrance clean if there's any visible clog. #5 Still having a problem, then, for the last resort, before deciding on replacing the diaphragm pump, open the bottom metal part (5 screws), inspect for any visible drip of water (accumulation of white hard water stains, or discoloration on the metal) visualize where it's coming from. Mine is on 2 areas--from the diaphragm pump (where there's 3 black screws) and where the connection of the main pump to the reservoir. This is good news, it means nothing wrong with the pumps. it's just been leaking a little bit of water on the connection (must be air tight, any leak will decrease the pressure). The common sense FIX: depress the metal clamp and pull the plastic tube out, clean the inside and the connection and re-attach it back making sure the little leak will stop. same with the other one then, then replace the other smaller tube with a new tie wrap and make sure it's air tight. Basically you just check all the hose connections make sure it's air tight..

Suddenly it only brews 1/2 cup at a time


When everything else that you tried fails... like descaling with vinegar and leave it for 15-24 hrs 2-3x before brew rinsing), or the paper clip on both top and bottom punchers cleaning, or turning it upside down and giving it a shake, or cleaning the water reservoir entrance. then, for the last resort, before deciding on replacing the diaphragm pump... open the bottom metal part, inspect for any visible drip of water (accumulation of white hard water stains, or discoloration on the metal) visualize where it's coming from. Mine is on 2 spots, from the diaphragm pump (where there's 3 black screws) and where the connection of the main pump to the reservoir. This good news, it means nothing wrong with the pumps. it's been leaking water so the connection is the only problem (must be air tight). The common sense FIX: depress the metal clamp and pull the plastic tube out, clean the inside and the connection and re-attach it back making sure the little leak will stop. Replace the other one with a new tie wrap and make sure it's air tight.

My Amana french door/bottom freezer is leaking water. Did the procedure with hot water the drain in back of the freezer, although it seemed clear of ice. That didn't help. The leaking stops when I...


Two possibilities:
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.

Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.

Depends if there is plastic tubing running inside fridge compartment. Shut off water to fridge. If that stops it you will have to look inside to see if there is visible plastic water tubing or if you can get to it from inside the fridge. Maybe the water line has a defect or got pinched and somehow split. Then turn on water, find leak and splice in a replacement section.

My Hayward S240 is only catching a small portion of the dead algae. I have replaced the media, the laterals are intact, and have added a filter enhancer. The spider gasket is good. I have lots of dead...


dead algae is made up of microscopic particles. Most sand filters have trouble filtering out particles that small. I would recommend using a flocculent that will force the particles to settle to the bottom, you can then set the multiport valve to the "waste" setting and vacuum as much of the debris as possible. You can use an additive like fiberclear to help the filter clear the water up quicker.

Dolphin p;ool clener will not sink to the bottom of the pool


Put it in the water and turn it upside down to let out all of the air. If it still won't sink look at the filter bag. If it is getting older and discolored it may need to be replaced.

A simple test is to remove it from the bottom lid and fill it with water like a water skin. If the water leaks out slowly or hardly at all, replace the bag. You could try washing it of course but it usually only helps for a short time if at all.

For a quote on a replacement bag contact us at www.arrowpools.net.

Filter


The filter panel may be replaced from the top or bottom but it's less hassle to replace from the bottom because the top tray retains a small amount of water and also because you must be mindful of working around the feed tube assembly. Also, when replacing the filter panel, clean both trays (requires removing both trays, water feed tube and drain tube) and drain tube ... use a 8 water -1 bleach diluted solution or other anti-bacterial solution and wipe the trays and pour some into the removed drain tube (not the feed tube!) and shake it up a bit. Be careful though as you do not want bleach solution getting in your eyes, nor on your skin and clothes!

Bad water & ice cube taste


Hello redwood City
Welcome

You said,
Your Kitchenaid Superba KSRG25FKBL15 has bad tasting water and ice cubes. You replaced the copper tubing which delivers the water to the fridge and that didn't help. You replaced the copper tubing again with plastic tubing...no better. Any suggestions? Your tap water doesn't taste this bad.You bought a Kenmore french door fridge with water dispenser in the door in July 2008. The fridge has a filter. A few weeks after the fridge came the water and ice started tasting really bad, unlike any bad water taste I have ever tasted. And your tap water is fine. The bad taste appears to be random. Sometimes you get a cup full of nasty water and sometimes it tastes fine.

First you must know you have a 1 year warranty and can have them come out to fix anything, no charge.If it persists. You will have to get tough and you , MUST INSIST THEY REPLACE YOUR FRIDGE


When installing the water line these were a part of the directions!
Did you do this before connecting the water line to your fridge?
"Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and
turn ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is
clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe. Coil the
copper tubing."



Whirlpool remedy
Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice
1.Are the plumbing connections new, causing discolored or
off-flavored ice? Discard the first few batches of ice.
2.Have the ice cubes been stored too long? Throw old ice
away and make a new supply.
3.Does the freezer and ice storage bin need to be cleaned?
See “Cleaning” or “Ice Maker and Storage Bin.”
4.Has food in the freezer or refrigerator been wrapped
properly? Use airtight, moisture-proof packaging to help
prevent odor transfer to stored food.
5.Does the water contain minerals (such as sulfur)? A filter
may need to be installed to remove the minerals.
6. Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or
dark discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration
system needs additional flushing. Run additional water
through the water dispenser to flush the water filtration
system more thoroughly (at least 2 to 3 gal. [8 to 12 L] or 6 to
7 minutes initially). Discard discolored ice.

Let me know what works,
Thank You ,
HUUUM!!
