SOURCE: Kenmore Model 78185891 type C21TFA95, water leakage problem

you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

SOURCE: Kenmore elite - Water dripping from freezer to refrigerator

Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

If this is a new purchase, you will have to depress the water dispenser lever long enough for the water to make it all the way through the system, including the water tank located inside the fresh food compartment.

SOURCE: In my freezer, there is a blinking red light next to the icemaker on-off switch. What is it and why is it blinking?

It might be blinking because it hasn't been able to reach the required temperature or the temperature you have set. Probably leaving it close for one or two days, the light will go off, if not, you might consider changing the plastic isolation of the door, you know, the plastic thing that you see goes around the freezer door, best luck.

Refrigerator RF323TE how do I change the water filter?


The filter for the french door refrigerator is probably behind the vegetable drawer, if you do not see it in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator compartment. Remove the veggie drawer and turn off the water coming into the refrigerator. Rotate the old filter to the unlocked position and remove it. Then take off the protective cap from the new cartridge and insert it into the refrigerator. Rotate it to the locked position. (Rotate the filter to position the label before you insert the filter. Then the filter goes in correctly.) Reinsert the vegetable drawer and close the doors. Then turn the water back on and fill several glasses with water to clean the filter. Pour that water down the drain at your sink.

For pictures of how to hold the filter, see http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/RF323TEDBSR/AA . See the FAQ on replacing the water filter. I hope this helps.

How to change water filter?


Hi

Find the indication light, located at the top of the Whirlpool refrigerator just inside the door. This tells you when to change your water filter. A green light indicates the filter is good and a red light indicates you need to change the filter.

Find the filter knob. It is usually located at the base of the refrigerator in the kick plate or grill.

Turn the knob a quarter turn to the left to unlock the filter. Pull out and remove the old filter.

Add a new filter and push in. Turn the filter a quarter turn to the right to secure it in place.

Reset your filter indication light inside the refrigerator. Press down and release the switch five times within 10 seconds. The filter indication light should then turn green.
Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Can't identify "water filter indicator light"


the indicator light could be on the control panel inside the refr section if your controls are there, or it is most likely on the front of the dispenser panel. it only comes on when you draw water from the dispenser and thats when you will see it be green, filter ok, yellow, filter at 80% life, or red, time to replace the water filter.
also you dont need to shut off the water when changing the filter as it is made with a shut off device in the filter housing already and is automatic.
by the way filters are expensive, go online and check prices. google "water filters" and find a good price.

Cannot remove water filter from LG 26 cu ft side-by-side in the d


Here's the only thing that worked for me in getting the water filter out of my LG refrigerator after trying for three weeks, pulling hard by hand, using high-grip gloves, and trying an oil filter wrench. You have to break or lessen the suction created by the water in the filter. Do this by first turning the filter to the Removal position (in my case, a quarter-turn to the left). Then grip the filter tight and rock it back and forth slowly as far toward the back and front of the refrigerator as possible, while keeping a bit of downward pressure on the filter. This lets the two O-Rings "walk" their way down the insert tube. After only a few pushes and pulls - voila! -- it lets go and will drop right out.

Kenmore Fridge - Bad Testing Water


Your refrigerator definitely has a water filter. If you have gone 5 years without replacing the filter, you and your family have probably been drinking contaminated water, for some time. Water filters should be replaced every three to six months. On some refrigerators, and in cases of higher water consumption, the filter must be changed every 60 days. Sears sells replacement filter cartridges for Kenmore refrigerators.

The water filter on your refrigerator is located at the front base of the unit, in the grille, below the freezer door. There, you will see a round cap. Turn the cap counter-clockwise, until the handle is vertical.Then, pull it out of the grille. The filter cartridge is attached to the cap. After removing the cap and filter, slide the cap off from the existing filter cartridge. Slide the cap on to a new cartridge, and re-insert with the cap handle in a vertical position. Push it in, firmly. Then, turn the cap clockwise, until the cap handle is horizontal.

Ice maker not working


In my freezer, there's an infrared beam positioned over the top of the ice bin. If the bin is full of ice, it blocks the beam and no ice can be made. In addition, when you open the freezer door, a small (2x3") door opens in the freezer to block the beam, again to prevent ice from being made while the door is open. Is anything blocking the path of this beam from one side of the freezer to the other?

This sounds like the Maytag bottom mount that has a High Voltage Control Board problem. Does this have the freezer/fridge temp. display/controls on the left hand fridge door? Whats the model number and on the manufacture tag does it something on it like Code:0304 maybe? Let me know I may have an answer I do work on these for a living.
