This may indicate that the new filter is faulty and may need to be exchanged.

SOURCE: water leaking at filter

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. Call me at 816-560-8545 if you need more info.

Can the water filter housing be the cause of slow water when the filter is in place?


Even a new filter will reduce the flow some what. I think the pressure to the filter is low or restricted . that will cause a reduction in flow, no it should not leak, check on the seal.

Removing Whole House Filters


Frequently whole house filters can be very difficult to remove. The canisters become almost impossible to loosen, even after pressing the pressure relief valve and using a housing wrench. The most common reasons for this are the housing was put back on with the housing wrench, debris in the housing threads and a bad pressure relief valve.

How to remove a stuck filter housing.
1. Turn off the incoming water.
2. By-Pass the Softener
3. Go to the nearest cold water faucet, open it and let the water run until pressure drops significantly.
4. Turn the water off at outlet of filter (If housing has shutoff on top off head, turn this off now).
5. Press and hold the pressure relief button to relieve pressure further.
6. Use filter wrench to unscrew housing (If it still won't loosen repeat steps 2-5).
7. After removing, clean housing thoroughly, make sure threads are clean on filter bowl and housing head. Lubricate threads of housing and head with plumbers faucet lube or silicone.
8. Clean and lubricate the O-Ring (replace the O-ring every couple years or if housing leaks after screwing back on). It helps to flip the O-Ring over a couple times per year.
9. Replace the cartridge filter and screw the housing back on.
10. Turn the incoming water on slowly while holding the pressure relief button down until all air is purged.
11. Open outlet and let water run to cold water faucet until all air is purged.
12. Put softener back in service.

IMPORTANT! Only tighten the filter housing by HAND!
NEVER use the housing wrench to tighten the housing.

I hope these tips help you with the angst of removing stubborn filter housings.

How do you change the filter to a culligan water softener


Here are instruction to remove the filter housing. This is from my tips posting. Culligan filter housings are just Pentek/Pentair water filter housings and these tips apply to virtually any filter housing.

My culligan 30 good water system leaks--i have turned it off because of the mess--i would like to fix it and can i do this outside of the kitchen so i don't have to clean up so much water


Your question is difficult to answer until you determine where it is leaking. Some common places to check are inlet and outlet ports,are fittings going into these tight enough, are they to tight and have cracked the housing on filter . Is there rust or other debris lodged in pressure relief valve.Is it leaking on gasket.
I'm not trying to avoid your question I just need more info. If it's leaking around inlet or outlet ports then you can take these apart if they installed a union. If so then you can remove fittings and tape with several wraps of teflon tape and use pipe joint compound also if you like. If copper or brass fittings were used for installation they may have cracked the housing where they screw into. Sometime you can't see hairline cracks unless fittigs are installed.If it is leaking around base gasket you can remove filter housing and clean gasket and both sealing surfaces. Sometimes a small amount of faucet grease or petroleum jelly on the gasket will help it seal
If it's leaking out of pressure relief you will need to remove filter top and wash out with clean water to clear any rust or mineral particles.
Sorry I can't be more specific but I hope this helps some and if there is anything else I can do let me know. Thank you

Filter canister stuck


This is a very common problem. There are many reasons for this.

1. The canister was tightened with a wrench when re-installling. NEVER tighten a filter housing with a wrench after replacing the filter! Only by HAND! This is the main reason they are so hard to remove.
2. Filters swell in the housing.
3. The housing itself can swell.
4. The pressure relief button does not work properly.
5. Sediment buildup causes back pressure.
6. Sediment gets trapped on the threads from previous filter changes.
7. Off brand filters, especially those made overseas, frequently are not sized according to specs and can cause these problems. It is best to stay with a brand you know and has worked previously.
8. A bad o-ring will cause people to over tighten the canister because of leaks. Inspect and lubricate the o-ring (every filter change) and replace it yearly.

The best way to remove a stubborn filter canister is to shut off the incoming water, bypass the water softener, go to the nearest cold water faucet and let it run until the pressure dies off. Turn off the outlet on filter, hold the pressure relief button down on the housing (to relieve any more pressure) and remove the housing with the "appropriate" filter housing wrench. If it is still hard to remove repeat the process. After removing the canister, clean the head and canister threads with a clean cloth, lubricate them with silicone lube or plumbers water supply lubricant. It also helps to clean the inside of the housing with a 1/2 tsp of bleach, rinse and wipe it out thoroughly. This prevents any introduction of bacteria into the water system, which is also a very common problem and where "smells" can derive from.

Water leak at rear of filter at hose connections. will old filter cause this to clog and force water out of the connection fittings at the clear plastic water lines


Hi,

it sounds like the filter housing could have a crack in it, but It could potentially be a leaking line. In the event the old filter where clogged to the extreme, you'd simply have little or no water flow, not enough pressure to cause a leak though. I've seen these housings damaged by customers forcing the filters in or out in ways never intended.

To check the lines are secure/not leaking...

**FIRST unplug the unit from the wall and turn off the water supply**

either go thru the front by removing the toe panel/kick plate grill, or go thru the back panel, you'll still need to remove the grill at the front though. the 2 screws securing the filter housing to the fridge are at the front behind that grill. (if your lines are long enough -they usually aren't- you can undo the screws and pull the housing out to work on it easier/unimpeded). remove the 2 lines to the filter housing carefully(when removing these you simply push the tab surrounding the line "in" or "down" and pull out the line) and inspect them at the ends where the "seat" in the fitting/"O" ring within the housing. with a razor blade or sharp utility knife, cut off a small amount to insure a clean fitting when re-installing the lines into the housing (simply push them in the way they came out, until they bottom out and you can't pull them back out). once that's done you can turn the water back on, plug the unit in, and check for leaks. Is it actually the lines, or the housing itself ?

I've seen this a few times. the complete housing can be replaced and it isn't that difficult. First verify it is leaking behind the filter at the housing, I could try and help further. the housing is # 2186443 if you need it.

hope that helps,

good luck

Lost water pressure on house


it is normal to loose pressure from the filter it must have very small holes in it for the water to pass threw so it can trap dirt and particales from both well and city water. it is normal for it to cut back on pressure, it will cut back more and more as it catches the things that you are filtering out. what you might want to do is filter your drinking water only, under your sink .dont try shower and outside faucets. and you wont have to replace it as often. well good luck and good day to you... sawdust46

Fridge leak by water filter Fridgidaire


Hello, sounds like the o-ring for the housing that the filter goes into was damaged. You can get a replacement o-ring from your locale appliance parts wholesaler/dealer - OR if you have a really good locale "Hardware" store - remove the o-ring from the male part of the housing that stays in your fridge (pinch it between you fingers around the diameter and you should be able to get it out). They should be able to match it for you - If I recall it is a standard size. If you cannot find one right away you may be able to get it to stop leaking temporarily by getting some Sillicone O-Ring GREASE and applying it to the o-ring. This may stop the leak but I would still replace the oring when you can. Good Luck Dr. Know
