Have to run water in sink to get water to come out of the refrigerator

Replaced water filter in fridge. Now to get water to come out, you have to be running water out of the kitchen sink or somewhere else in the house! Discovered this by accident really. :P If no water is running, the fridge makes a sort of fast stutter/thrumming sound for about 1.5 seconds, a tiny squirt of water comes out, and then goes to a trickle. If I turn the water in the sink on, it starts up just fine. BTW, you cannot just have the water in the sink trickling, it needs to be on at least half way. Thanks for any advice! :)

The filter under the sink should have nothing to do with the water supply to the icemaker. The "repairman" probably cut off the icemaker water supply by "bypassing" the filter.

My ice and water out of the fridge taste bad


I recently had a customer who had bad tasting ice. She'd had technicians from the place she purchased her fridge out, and they replaced the supply lines to the fridge, added water filters, but the problem persisted.

The problem actually started under the house. The fridge is on a wall opposite the kitchen sink and the dishwasher, so it was the only thing using water at the end of a long run of copper line, about 10 to 12 feet of it. Since the ice maker doesn't cycle allot, the water in that line was getting stagnant.

I ended up running a new line from a supply line in the adjacent room where the washer was. It was much shorter and didn't leave the fridge at the end of the line. And that was the end of her problem.

Check the supply line under your home if you can. If there's no other way around it, but that it be at the end of a long run, try running a smaller line to reduce the amount of water that sits in the line, and flush it often.

Hope this helps.

We just had a new RO Unit installed at our sink, and a line run to our Maytag fridge. The water filter is inside, at the top. We don't really need the filter anymore, as the RO water is more tha


Take the filter to the hardware store and get the necessary fittings (and maybe a short piece of tubing) to connect the in and out lines without the filter. Perhaps easier deal is a new filter which should NEVER become clogged on RO water.

We are contemplating buying a samsung fridge However we currently have a whirlpool with the water filter on it. How would we disconnect the water filter currently installed to connect a new samsung fridge?


I'm not sure I understand your question, so forgive me if I'm incorrect. I'm confused as to wether your whirlpool has an internal filter or if you have an external stand-alone unit.

I have a samsung refridgerator and the water filter is inside the fridge located at the back on the upper right. In fact, all Samsung RAF/AES models come with this internal filter. Depending on where you buy it, often times the delivery guys will set it up for free. They will simply disconnect your old fridge, remove it , reconnect the water hose to your new Samsung and be on their way.

If you choose to do it yourself, simply remove the old fridge, follow the hose to under your sink and remove the old one. Run the new house by attaching it to the appropriate place on your sink and over to the back of the fridge. Also, many modern homes have a cold water tap behind the fridge, so you might be able to connect it there if you do.

Either way, whether you have an external unit or inyernal hose

Water dispenser is running slow


Very good possibility that it's time to change the inline filter. If not, check to see if the fridge water supply is on a valve possibly tapped under the sink. Someone could have closed it by mistake.

Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell


Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.

My ice and water dispenser is leaking


I am not an expert on refrigerators, but generally you hook a 1/4" (copper or plastic) line to a solenoid valve to the back of your refrigerator, which you then hooks up to a filter, which then ties into an existing compression fitting, or saddle tap on a cold water line (usually on the kitchen sink). Some refrigerators have a place for a filter to fit which runs to the cold water, and not an exposed rear solenoid.

Cant get water out of the fridge door


hello allamericananp,

welcome to fixya.com.

Huuum at your service.

You said, the ice maker slowly stopped working, decreasing in the amount of ice it made until finally no ice at all. also, water trickles from water dispenser.

The first thing I would ask is when did you last change your water filter in the fridge?
Or if it's an older fridge with an inline filter behind the fridge!
check the shut off valve for the water line that leads to you ice maker. under the sink or in the basement or where ever the line comes from. I've seen where someone turned the valve a little clockwise unbeknown to the home owner and stopped or slowed the water flow.

The water line should be checked too, for any kinking that may be running behind the fridge or some unseen place!

How old is the fridge??

Let me know,
Thank you Huuum

The water line vibrates and makes noise when using it. It sounds like there's air in the line.


Does it make noises when anything else in the house uses water?(sinks, toilets filling up?)
If not the pull the fridge out and make sure water line clamp was installed. It will be a small clamp near the bottom of the fridge on tha same side the line comes into the back of it.
Is there a water filter that has been replaced recently?
