From the Samsung Online FAQ for my RF266AASH
Can I Use the Water Dispenser Without a Water Filter?
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.
Re: I need to bypass a filter in RS267LASH Samsung...
The Samsung refrigerator filter is costly. The way to "bypass" it to NOT bypass it, I will explain: The DA29-00012A filter holder is built into the fridge, not worth the trouble to bypass it there. The way to do it is the followiing: Take a used filter, carefully cut it open by the seam where it was glued together. Empty out the contents, clean it internally, and glue it back together. You can use PVC pipe glue for that as it melts the case together. A thin piece of PVC material glued over the re- glued seam will insure water tightness. Now your light will be normal and use a quality external filter as required. You will never have to replace that filter again. External filters last 1-2 years at much lower cost.

I know your model is Samsung but on whirlpools when you remove the filter it automatically bypasses the filter through the filter housing I would try that with someone that can turn the water off before you do it just in case I'm wrong about Samsung removal of the filter should allow it to automatically bypass otherwise you will have to buy a I believe a 5/16 Union and just bypass the two lines in and out where you can reach him on the outside Appliance 911 Sea Breeze
Is this the Samsung 4-door fridge/freezer with a round water-filter between the two drawers in the Refrigerator? a) Is your water-filter correctly installed in it's place? b) check where the water-drops are coming from: it could be the ice-maker - need to call Samsung service.
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
Install Water Filtration Cartridge (some models) a. Remove bypass cartridge from water filter head in rear right corner of refrigerator section. Twist cartridge counterclockwise 1/4 turn and pull down to remove. Save bypass for use at a later date. b. See Water Filtration System Installation and Operating Instructions provided with water filter cartridge for filter installation and operation.
Sounds like the fan unit is faouling with ice. The solution is to remove the whole of the contents and then the units inside at the rear. Defrost same and re assemble. Its not that hard if you remove the light difuser first and the two screws. Mark the difuser for top. Then ease out the unit and remove after taking out the electrical connections. They fit only one way. The lower unit has four screws. Two under covers. Easy to unclip. The ice seal may mean that it is not that easy to remove. Defrost both the units with a hairdryer or similar and clear insulation from the fan drain. Re assemble when clear and as dry as you can. The problem will come back so be aware that you have to repeat the procedure when the fan gives signs of fouling. Paul.
If your RS267LASH refridgerator is not cooling it is because it is not defrosting. In order to fix it they will have to take it into the shop to cut into the copper wiring, remove the freon and change out the probe inside. The parts and labor are covered under warranty for 5 years. This was the last thing done to mine after changing out the board, a fan, and a thermocouple.
If this is a Pure source 2 filter in the upper right hand side of fridge, Purchase an Electrolux filter bypass, P/N 241944302. This is a empty cartridge that lets water flow without water drip when filter is clogged. Fridgidaire/Electrolux made no bypass in these filters, so when clogged they leak. Plus they NEVER last more than about 30/60 days. If you use the bypass, you will need a separate filter elsewhere such as in water line under sink or behind fridge.
