Samsung rs21dcsv refridgerator

After moving house it has taken us 6 months to re-plumb our fridge back to the water supply. Now that it is all plumbed in and a new filter has been fitted the water and ice have a nasty taste to it, im wondering if the pipes inside the fridge/freezer need cleaning? if so how??

How do I turn off the water to my icemaker on Kenmore Model 253.7818480 Refrigerator?

If your fridg is plumbed like most, there's a valve under your kitchen sink that controls the water going to the fridg.

Samsung side-by-side fridge freezer model RS21DCSV. Freezer is fine. Temperature keeps changing in fridge varying from 5-14 degrees and water has stopped coming out of dispenser. Have checked and...

these side by sides use an auger motor in the fridge to open and close according to the temp demand. If its eratic, either the auger is icing up at the outlet possibly due to product being to close to the outlet. On occation i have had to replace them due to being faulty.(to check, adjust the temp. and notice if there is any change on the auger.)

How to increase the water flow from water dispencer on a FLSC238DSO when getting water it takes for ever to fill a glass

If your fridge has a water filter, you should change it every 3 months. An old filter can cause slow flow problems.

But it will never come out as fast as the kitchen sink. Depending on the location of your fridge, you have 10 to 25 feet of 1/4" pipe between your water glass and the high-flow plumbing, and water just won't move very fast through that.

Cannot remove water filter, will not unscrew.

You need a belt wrench.


This and other versions can be found at Auto parts stores and plumbing supply stores.

It wraps around the filter housing and applies pressure evenly over the whole surface to prevent breakage.

You may need to use large channel locks on the main housing as you turn the belt wrench to prevent breaking pipes if it is stuck really tight and you have plastic pipes.

There is water dripping filling up the bottom under the salad container. The model is a LRTN22311TT.

Remove contents of fridge and check the drain line running down the top back of the back of fridge and follow to lower section of fridge (usually a back ledge or under the crisper sections) and locate a small round drain hole. Also, check to see that the drain collector (funnel looking thing at top back of fridge section) is located under the freezer defrost drain opening, to allow water to flow through the fridge into the drain pan under the fridge.

If something has obstructed the drain funnel, path, tube, or lower drain hole, remove the blockage to allow water to drain into underneath of fridge into drain pan for proper evaporation of water produced from the usual daily defrost cycle of fridge/freezer.

If that is not the problem, it could be that you have a leaking water supply line for your ice maker and you'll need to see if the freezer is allowing excessive water to flow out of the ice maker into the fridge section.

Another simple check/solution is that the fridge is not properly leveled, meaning that the front of the fridge should be slightly higher than the rear to allow for proper drainage and self closing of the front doors. This will help keep the water flowing in the built in channels and drains.

A perfectly level fridge isn't the right way to install most moveable refridgerators, while built in fridges (Sub Zero, etc.) are designed for plumb and level installations for proper functioning and use.

no the water does not have to be plumbed in for the frige to cool. replace bulb. if short in the system exists then you will need to replace an interal wiring harness.

This is Gene's solution not mine, for a Ge fridge.
Assuming the ice dispenser works fine, the first thing I would check is the water filter, then the water inlet valve on the back of the fridge.

If the water filter is more than a year old it will cause restriction to the water flow.

Locate the water inlet valve on the back of the fridge. Remove the wires from the blue solenoid and check for 120V coming to the solenoid while the water dispenser lever is depressed.

If there is 120V then the water inlet valve has to be replaced.
