Samsung RSH1DTMH fridge freezer water filter replacement

I cannot get the inlet water pipe free from the old water filter without exerting what seems to be excessive force? Why is the water pipe so hard to detach?

    Hey Clive,
    Are you removing the pipe from a water filter?

    With out looking i guess
    If they are rubber hoses heat is up a little.
    if it is a traditional filter you should be able to remove the filter from the bottom and not have to remove the pipes at all.

    Could you explain in more detail the filter?

The water pipe connection to the filter is a one way fitting which means that the more one pulls to free the pipe, the more the filter connection grips it. There is a circlip on each end of the filter - push the circlip firmly in towards the filter while pulling the pipe free, it should come free easily. Needs 3 hands, two to depress the circlip and one to pull the pipe free. Preferably put a container under the filter (there can be a bit of spillage) while you're replacing it and remember to test the connections once you've fitted the new filter before pushing the fridge back into place.

Samsung's instructions should be clearer.

Ice maker is leaking water.


hi John.
Troubleshooting an Ice Maker That Leaks

When troubleshooting ice maker there are a lot of different things to be aware of. Ice makers are very useful when working correctly, however if there are any problems, it's important to fix these as quickly as possible. One common problem with ice makers is that they can leak. A leaking ice maker can be a result of a number of different reasons.
You will need to put your detective's cap on in order to inspect and diagnose what is actually causing the problem with your ice maker.
Checking Your Refrigerator For the ice maker to work properly it needs to be perfectly level. If it isn't level, this can cause leakage.
Before leveling the freezer you should unplug it so that you can work on it safely. Check that the freezer is perfectly level by placing a spirit level on top of the freezer from side to side. The leveling feet can then be adjusted by twisting them to raise and lower them. Continue this until the freezer is aligned properly from left to right.
Then repeat the process by putting your spirit level from front to back to ensure the freezer is completely level.
Ice Maker Level The ice maker unit itself can also be leveled. This is inside the unit and can be repositioned if needed. Loosen the mounting screws and align the ice maker unit so that it is perfectly level. After leveling, ensure that the mounting screws are tightened to prevent the ice maker from moving.
Water Supply Line The water supply line could also be damaged or broken. This is the tube that is behind your freezer. It's a fairly strong tube and is susceptible to damage. Check that the pipe isn't pinched or kinked.
Fill Cup When water enters your freezer it will be put into the fill cup. This is a funnel that directs the water into the ice cube molds. If this isn't aligned correctly, it can cause problems with leaks.
If you see any ice forming on the fill cup, this could be because the valve is not working properly.
Inlet Switch Remove the inlet switch and inspect it for signs of corrosion or damage. If any of the terminals have corroded, you will need to replace them. Using a multimeter, you can check that the switch is working properly. Press the switch and check that it connects and reduces the resistance as it should.
Inlet Valve If you are testing the inlet valve, you must first disconnect the power so it's safe to work on your freezer. The inlet valve is located in the bottom of the freezer. Turn the water off at the source and then disconnect the supply line. Use a bucket to catch all of the water from inside the inlet valve.

Label the location of all the wires and disconnect them. You will also need to remove the inlet supply tubes. Using a multimeter, check the resistance of the coil. Also inspect the mechanical functioning of the inlet valve, as it can fail mechanically as well as electronically.
After following this troubleshooting guide for your ice maker that leaks will get you back in business. Now you can enjoy a cold beverage for your hard work!
Comments Troubleshooting an Ice Maker: Ice Tastes Bad
Shares
When troubleshooting ice makers there are a number of steps that you can take to find the cause of the problem and put it right. One common problem is when the ice doesn't taste right. If the ice tastes bad, then there can be a number of reasons for this.
When working out why the ice tastes bad there are several things that you will need to consider. The problem could also be caused by one or more of the factors that could make solving it slightly move complicated.
Washing the Ice Bin The ice bin is the container that stores the ice, if this becomes dirty or moldy it can make the ice taste nasty. Simply taking the ice bin out of the freezer and then washing it will solve the problem. Read the instruction manual to find out where the ice bin is located.
Unscrew or unclip the ice bin and then wash it in warm soapy water. Dry the ice bin and then reassemble it. Place it back into the fridge and then find out whether it has resolved the problem.
Old Food If there is any old food in your refrigerator, it should be removed. The ice could taste funny because of this food. Empty your refrigerator of any old food and wash all of the shelves so that the fridge is completely clean.
Once the old food has been removed and the fridge has been cleaned completely you should then test the ice maker to find out whether the problems still affect you.
Flushing the Supply Line The supply line carries water to the ice maker. Sometimes the water can become stale, which is why you might be able to cure the problem by flushing the water pipe out with fresh clean water.
Test the ice maker after flushing the supply line to ensure that the water is now clean that the ice doesn't taste bad.
Water Inlet Valve If the water inlet valve is damaged, then this could also be because of the water inlet valve. If the water inlet valve is damaged or broken, it can leave the water exposed to smells inside your fridge, which can make the ice taste bad.
The water inlet valve will need replacing if it is damaged or broken. By replacing this water inlet valve you will be able to correct the problem and enjoy better tasting ice.
Replacing the Water Filter There is a water filter inside of your fridges ice maker that is designed to remove particles and bad smells from the water. The water filter needs to be removed and replaced.
The water filter should be replaced with the same type and model suitable for your freezer. Use your freezers model to ensure that the correct filter is fitted.
Supply Line Filter If your fridge doesn't already have a supply line filter, then fitting one could greatly help to reduce problems with the ice tasting bad. These can be fitted to virtually any ice maker.
Now you should be in good shape thanks to this troubleshooting guide for an ice maker that was producing bad tasting ice. It's time to reward yourself with a cold beverage.

Freezer not making ice


Is it an icemaker? Either the water valve is bad or the freezer isn't cold enough or the ice maker is bad. Is it just a ice cube tray? Then it's not cold enough.

I have a samsung fridge freezer model no RSH1DTMH and the fridge will not go lower than 13degrees and the freezer and water dispenser seem ok. The fridge freezer is only 3 years old. Any ideas/


We had the same fault on our Samsung American style RSH1DBRS fridge freezer as lots of other people seem to be having. After doing lots of research, we found the best solution seemed to be to buy a repair kit from Appliance DIY Repairs. The instructions were fantastic and the installation was a doddle. Excellent service & well priced.

I have a Samsung rsh1dbbp fridge/freezer, the change filter light has come up, but the instructions are not clear I do not know where to install the new filter, could someone help me?


The filter is located behind the fridge. This is a self contained filter cartridge that is replaced as a unit. Online they sell for about £4. Pull the fridge out completely and you will probably see the filter cartridge clipped to the wall. The filter is about 10 inches long and about 2 inch diameter. Note the flow direction marked on the new cartridge, and remember to turn off the water supply before disconnecting to inlet and outlet pipes from the filter . Hope this helps

Post your model number for filter help. The water supply hook to the water inlet valve on the back, Usually near the bottom. It has a fitting where the incoming water will fit. You may have to remove part of the cardboard on the back to get to it.

Do I need to install water filter? Is it critical?


The water filter is your call. This can remove sediment and some odors. If you have good water where you live, it should not be a big deal. The only thing is that it is a hassle to get behind the fridge to replace the filter. I have seen man people install their fridge without a filter and be very happy with the performance of the system. Not Critical, but some would say it is.

I hope that I have provided the correct information that will assist you in the resolution of this issue. If you have any questions, please post back with a comment to this thread.
