Where's the water filter on the GSS20ieta ?

I've had my fridge for quite some time and have never changed a filter. Does this model have a filter and if so, where is it located?

SOURCE: Where is the water filter and how do I change it out?

The Roper ref is basically a Whirlpool ref. The filter on a side by side unit usually is down the botton in the grille area slightly to the left of the center post. The grille will have a round hole opening, and filter should be there. The other place is in the ref section at the top rear right hand corner. The other possibility is that the unit may NOT have a filter. Not all units had them. If the unit is older than 5 yrs or so, ir propably did not have one and thus the external filter your parents were using. Or your parents took the filter out and the opening is empty. These units have an automatic by pass in them so they can be used without a filter or that an external one could be used.

SOURCE: my gss20ieta ww side by side fridge is warm but

Most likely , the problem is a bad defrost heater , pt # WR51X10101 , but I would still suggest going thru the motions to make sure . The heater runs about $45.00 . Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater WR51X10055 . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater . To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils . If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off due to selected temperature

At the back of the fridge check for a small drain hole that allows the water to flow out to the top of the compressor They do block up from ice and food residue (peas -milk etc) I would have a very serious talk to the rental agency as the fridge repair is the responsibility of the land lord as it came with the property. Ask for a new fridge or a good serviceable fridge. The freezer door gaskets are probably not sealing ( gone hard) allowing air in with the air moisture turning to ice.

Samsung side by side fridge/freezer ice and water is not working after filter change


If your water and ice maker are not working, you may not have turned your water valve back on. If your water valve is turned on, try rotating your water filter further so that it completely locks as it may not be installed all the way. Once it is completely installed, press the "water" button for approximately three seconds until it turns blue. If this does not solve the problem, you may have a bad filter, here is a replacement filter that you can purchase to install into your refrigerator: http://www.freshwatersystems.com/p-3658-swift-green-sgf-dsb30-compatible-samsung-da29-00003b-refrigerator-filter.aspx

Water does not flow


Sounds like air in the line.....the filter may be cracked/damaged, or not quite seated...?

since you've tried 2 new ones....I'm gonna bet they are not quite the correct ones for your fridge.

My Maytag msd2556ae will not dispense water throught the door. It makes ice just fine, and will dispense ice through the door, but not water. I've replaced the filter in the fridge, but no change.


There could be a blockage of its iced up. A complete defrost might fix it.
you'll have to leave it switched off with the doors open for 24 hrs.

Fridge leaks on the inside


The drain line in the freezer is blocked. It drains the water away after the defrost cycle. You will need to post your model number for me to be of more help.

Fridge too cold!


don't forget that just turning down your fridge temp dose not mean your problem might be over yet. the freezer setting may also be too high & that will affect your fridge temp as well. i set both my control settings to around 50% of what is on the scale & that works perfect for my 7 yr old fridge. also, very important, is make sure the freezer portion is going through it's full defrost cycles, or it will freeze the upper portion inside the fridge. you should not have any frost build up in your fridge, nor should you have any in your freezer. that's why they call them FROST FREE. try the slow temp decrease over a period of a few days & hopefully that will work for you. good luck.

Water dispenser and ice maker are not working, water supply to refrigerator is ok.


Check / replace the filter. Many fridges have a filter readily accessible from the fresh food compartment. The filter should be changed at regular intervals for best performance. A filter that is never changed will reduce and eventually stop water flow through it.

Check the temperature of the fresh food compartment near the filter. It may be "flirting" with the 32 degree mark. If it is this low, water has turned to ice - and will stop water from flowing. Bump the temperature up a tad to see if it solves the problem.

Lastly, the water supply solenoid may have failed. You didn't provide the model fridge - so I can't give specific info about it - but many fridges have one or two solenoids at the rear of the fridge for water supply and ice makers. You should hear a clicking sound from the rear of the fridge on many models when dispensing water or when the ice maker cycles on. If one has failed, you may expect to pay about $15 to $50 for a replacement - depending model.

Typical GE Refrigerator Single Solenoid Water Inlet Valve "WR57X10033"

Solenoid valve replacement is pretty straight forward. Usually all the is needed are some simple hand tools and a rag to pick up spilled water. Make sure the water supply is shut off and unplug the fridge before attempting.

If my answer was helpful - please rate it. Thanks & good luck!

WATER WORKING FINE FOR 4 YRS AND ALL OF A SUDDEN WATER SLOWED DOWN AND QUIT A DAY LATER, WHATS THE PROBLEM?


I had the same thing happen to me. Do you have a water filter inside the fridge? If so, change it. That's probably the issue, at least that's what my problem turned out to be.
The old filter just twists off. You may want a towel handy, it'll probably drip a little as you take it off. In my fridge it's located on the back wall to the right side near the top inside the fridge compartment. It's bigger than a pint jar but smaller than a quart jar.
I got my new filter at Wal-Mart, but you may want to shop around or Google it.
Good luck.

Yes there is a way to disconnect the water line. Pull the Fridge out from the wall. The electrical power chord should be on the back side as well as the 1/4" water line. You need to locate a valve and shut off the supply water. Then you can disconnect the line with wrenches. It is located near the bottom.
