Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Samsung RS21 fridge with internal water filter. I have just realised that the filter is not filtering water. When you fit the filter in place and try and turn the padlock on the filter to the mark it wont turn enough to reach it. When you remove the filter there is no water in it indicating that it is not filling with water. Am I missing something . I have tried to turn it more but it wont physically do it.

Fm, it's not threaded, turn it counter clockwise until it stops (should hear a click), then pull it out. Push the new one in all the way and turn it clockwise, you should hear it snap in. You may have to use a little force. If you are still having trouble, give them a call at 1-877-714-7481. Catriver.

Possible problems could a bad water valve (dual valve), bad micro switch which is activated by pressing the button for water to come out. On some models the bracket that holds the micro switch could be broken not allowing the button to activate.

  1. I would remove both solenoids (one at a time-not to mix them up) pay attention and mark all parts- try cleaning or replacing them. Most are fairly common supply items. Paying attention to wiring and proper installation is important during re assemble. JOHN-LA

SOURCE: Water filter stuck on my Kenmore Fridge

I had the same problem. I coudn't get the knob to turn. I ended up taking the front grill off so I could get a better grip on the knob. Once I did that I still have to put a lot of pressure on the knob to turn it but that did the trick. When I got it turned a quarter turn then it was easy to pull the filter out. Hope this helps!

I need to change the water filter in my samsung srs618dp fridge freezer. I have the filter but cannot locate the internal part in the fridge i need to change.


For Samsung side-by-side refrigerators, there are two possible locations. One is in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator. The other is behind the veggie drawer.

To access the filter, either remove the top glass shelf or the vegetable bin. Turn off the water to the refrigerator. If no filter is currently in use, remove the cap. If a filter is in use, remove the old filter. Turn clockwise to remove the old filter. Save the cap to reinstall if the fridge is ever used without the filter. Note the date when you put in the new filter and place the sticker on the filter. Remove the red cap from the new filter and align the unlock mark with the filter mark on the filter housing in the refrigerator. (Looks like an unlocked padlock with the u part turned 180 degrees from the rest of the lock). Turn the new filter counter-clockwise 90 degrees until the lock symbol (closed padlock) lines up with the mark on the housing. Use steady firm pressure - it will be hard to turn. This ensures a tight seal. Turn on the water line and check for leaks. If the filter isn't leaking replace the shelf or the vegetable drawer.

Samsung support for the SRS618dp is here: http://www.samsung.com/au/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP00&prd_ia_cd=2201&prd_mdl_cd=RS23DENS1%2FRAD&prd_mdl_name=SRS618DP&srchword=SRS618DP .

I hope this helps.

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

RS21DABB- water dispenser will not dispense anymore. Mechanically intact but no flow! Rest of fridge/freezer perfect!


no water can be the early signs of the common issues with samsung rs21 models
what happens is the fridge cooler /defrost system goes faulty and freezers the water instead of chilling it , the best way to check is to take the 2 drawers out the bottom section of the fridge you will then be able to see the water bottle , if there's a lot of ice around the bottle then this would confirm a defrost issue , you can heat the bottle for 10 minutes or so with a hair dryer etc , if the water starts to work after this then you probably will have to call an engineer or fit the rs21 diy fridge repair kit

Samsung RSH1DTMH fridge freezer water filter replacement


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.

Using without water filter


The effort it would take to eliminate filter would be too much. Just leave filter in place. If new house filter is working right you should never have to replace fridge filter and your water will be double-filtered :)
