This happened to me and was the o-ring, the cup is sealed by the o-ring and in my case I did not realise it dopped off after I unscrewed. Either your o-ring is missing or needs replaced as it is worn out.

SOURCE: GE Profile water filter housing leaks

Hi there is a grommet you can replace.
#WR02X10678 it is about $7.00 It can help seal the plug sometimes. Ge does want you to buy the whole filter assembly it is number
#WR17X11618 $51.50 . You may also consider putting a new filter in. It seals better than the plug it is number
#gwf $42.95. I dont know why they dont sell a o-ring kit. I guess they just dont make much money on o-rings. I hope this will help you. Have a nice day.

Filter pops out when water lever engaged


Hello Sammy, thank you for your post!
I understand that the filter inside of your Frigidaire refrigerator pops out when you push in on the dispenser. This could be an issue with the filter. I would suggest reinstalling the filter and assuring that you can hear a connection within the housing. If the filter is not connected properly once water has pushed through it will dislodge from the housing. The housing could also be causing an issue within the connection. Is your filter a new filter? You may need to change it for the gaskets to be new. If you continue to experience issues I would recommend seeking help with a professional technician for a proper diagnosis to be completed. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

How do I change the water filter on a Frigidaire FRS6R5EMB


If it's the model I'm thinking of, it has a screw in filter cup up in the rear, upper right corner of the fresh foods section. Just twist that weird shaped cup on the bottom counter-clockwise and then pull down on it. It should come out with the filter in it. Then, just take out the filter, put a new one in, and then screw the filter cup back into place.

From a manual of a similar model to yours:

To change filter:
It is not necessary to turn the water supply off to change the filter.
1. Open freezer door and leave open until filter change is
complete.
2. Turn OFF side mounted ice maker by raising wire signal
arm to the UP position. Turn OFF rear mounted ice maker
by pressing ON/OFF power switch to the "O" position.
3. Hold filter cup firmly, and unscrew towards left (Some water
could leak out as you remove cup. This is normaL). Filter
cartridge should come down with cup. If cartridge remains in
housing, puli down gentl_; while twisting filter back and forth.
4. Rinse out cup under running water.
5. The large o-ring that seals the filter system fits in the o-ring
groove inside the cup. Should the o-ring fail out during filter
cartridge replacement, simply place it back in the groove
prior to screwing the cup back in place. If the o-ring becomes
damaged, you wiIIneed to order one from the Flectmtux
Solutions Hottine.
6. Discard old filter cartridge.
7. Remove new filter cartridge from packaging. Place in cup. The
end with the small o-ring should be up, out of the cup.
8. Screw cup, with filter, back onto housing. Do Not Use Wrench
To Reinstall Cup= Filter cartridge will self-align as cup is
tightened. Be sure cup is completely tightened with
PureSource TM logo facing outward. Do Not Tighten Past Stop.
9. Turn ON side mounted ice maker by lowering wire signal
arm to the DOWN position. Turn ON rear mounted ice
maker by pressing ON/OFF power switch to the 'T' position.
10. Check for Ieaks. Open refrigerator door. Wipe any water droplets
from the filter cup. Fi[Ia glass with water. If there is a leak,
unscrew filter cup, and reinsert the filter cartridge. Check
placement of large O-ring. Reinstall filter cup, making certain it is
tightened complete!_,_
11= To prime filter system and purge air from water line,
continue flushing the system for approximately 3 minutes
to assure that the purest water possible is stored in the
water tank. There win be noticeab[e spurts and sputters
as the system pushes air out through the system and
out the dispenser nozzle,This is normal.

Where is the water filter frs24wscb


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know where the water filter is located on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS24WSCB. The water filter is located in the top back right-hand corner. To change filter follow the instructions below:

It is not necessary to turn the water supply off to change the filter.

1. Set ice maker lever (wire signal arm) to the OFF (up) position.
2. Hold filter cup firmly, and unscrew counter clockwise. (Some water could leak out as you remove cup. This is normal.) Filter cartridge should come down with cup. If cartridge remains in housing, pull down gently, while twisting filter back and forth.
3. Empty cup of any substance.
4. The large o-ring that seals the filter system sets in the o-ring groove down inside the cup. Should the o-ring fall out during filter cartridge replacement, simply place it back in the groove prior to screwing the cup back in place. If the o-ring becomes damaged, you will need to order a new one from the Consumer Assistance Center.
5. Discard old filter cartridge.
6. Remove new filter cartridge from packaging, and install.
7. Place filter cartridge in cup. The end with the small o-ring should be up, out of the cup.
8. Screw cup, with filter, back onto housing. Do Not Use Wrench To Reinstall Cup. Filter cartridge will self-align as cup is tightened. Be sure cup is completely tightened with PureSource Plus Logo facing outward. Do Not Tighten Past Stop.
9. Set ice maker level on the ON (down) position.
10. Check for leaks. Open refrigerator door. Wipe any water drops from the filter cup. Run a glass of water. If there is a leak, unscrew filter cup, and reinsert the filter cartridge. Check placement of large O-ring. Reinstall filter cup, making certain it is tightened completely.
11. To condition filter system and purge air from water line, run several glasses of water through water dispenser. This will also assure that the purest water possible is stored in water tank.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Water leak at filter


You probably will have to replace the water filter housing that holds the water filter. This is an relatively easy job and should only take about 30 min. The housing will cost around $40-$50 online or from your appliance store. Turn off the water to the fridge. Take the top shelf out of the fridge to access the water filter area. There is a small screw in a really deep hole on the bottom of the cover, just to the right of the filter cup. I used a really small socket (9/32",1/4" or 9mm - can't remember) and extention. Take out the screw which will uncover the housing. The water hoses (white) just slip onto the housing - check these to verify if they are on tight. If they are loose this is the water leak. if they are on tight (which I'm sure they are) then proceed. Take off the filter cup which is screwed onto the housing. Remember "righty tighty - lefty loosy". Take another small screw (maybe two) out which holds the housing to the refrigerator. Now pull the water hoses off the housing. This is kinda tuff because the hoses are just slid on to the housing and are held on by friction only and its hard to get a good grasp because of the location of the unit. You can't really stick much under the hoses to pry them off either because if you damage them, they won't hold the seal later. Just pull and twist and they should come off. Visually inspect the housing unit, you should be able to see a crack if there is one. Replace if necessary. Just make sure not to overtighten the screws and especially the filter cup when reinstalling. Good luck and I hope this helps.
