How to Change ice filter in 532 sub zero my ice taste bad


The answer to your question is yes. First go to home depot or lowes and tell them you want an in line water filter for a refridgerator and you want that filter to have the brass or copper threaded connections already on the filter. While your there pick up a couple of stainless steel water lines. The fittings for the filter are going to be 1/4 inch fittings, so be sure to get the right size lines. Once your back home, pull the machine away from the wall, unplug it, jsut for safety, and turn the water off. The next thing you want to do is disconnect the old water line from the wall and from the water valve on the fridge. Before you hook up the filter make sure you note the water flow direction that should be on the side tellling you which way it should pass throught the filter. Hook up the line that will go from the wall to the filter but don't connect the valve yet. Once you got it connected to the wall get a bucket and place the line that goes to the valve in it and turn the water on. This way the filter is flushed before you hook it up to speed up the process of getting that bad water out. Ok, flush a few gallons, then hook the line to the valve, plug in the machine and your done. Allow a few cycles of ice to pass before you notice the difference. Good luck

We have an Electrolux S/S side by side w/Ice&water though the freezer door. The water flow through the door has been inoperative for several months but the ice maker continued to work fine. Water...


check and see if there is a built in filter pack inside the back of the fridge or it could possibly be that one of the lines has froze internally and or the open close valve at the water inlet inside has worn out

Water will not dispense from electrolux side by side front door refridgerator


I would check the water valve. Many of these refrigerators use a dual cylinder water valve and sometimes one of hose cylinders goes bad. The filter is at the inlet so if its still making ice, that means that the valve is still getting water.

How do i get clean ice cubes from frigidare?


In order to get as clean an ice cube as possible, it all depends on the quality of the water that goes into the ice maker. If you have a water softener, your cubes will always be a bit cloudy, since the added salt slows down the freezing slightly and thus the cubes get cloudy.

That said, there are a few things you can do to improve your water. Adding a whole house water filter with a sediment charcoal filter, will remove the impurities and help to improve the overall taste. Then add an inline charcoal filter on the water line into the fridge. That will filter your water a bit more and help further improve the clarity and taste of the cubes.

Beyond that, you might want to look into a reverse osmosis system to really get the best possible tasting water you can.

The old adage of "garbage in, garbage out" is a good analagy for water quality issues, so you need to figure out what's in your water in order to take the steps to treat your water for the best possible results.

I recall that Sears offers free water testing (to help sell water softeners) so that's an option, as well as getting a home water test you can perform yourself.

Hope that helps you with your situation. Best regards!

Bad water & ice cube taste


Hello redwood City
Welcome

You said,
Your Kitchenaid Superba KSRG25FKBL15 has bad tasting water and ice cubes. You replaced the copper tubing which delivers the water to the fridge and that didn't help. You replaced the copper tubing again with plastic tubing...no better. Any suggestions? Your tap water doesn't taste this bad.You bought a Kenmore french door fridge with water dispenser in the door in July 2008. The fridge has a filter. A few weeks after the fridge came the water and ice started tasting really bad, unlike any bad water taste I have ever tasted. And your tap water is fine. The bad taste appears to be random. Sometimes you get a cup full of nasty water and sometimes it tastes fine.

First you must know you have a 1 year warranty and can have them come out to fix anything, no charge.If it persists. You will have to get tough and you , MUST INSIST THEY REPLACE YOUR FRIDGE


When installing the water line these were a part of the directions!
Did you do this before connecting the water line to your fridge?
"Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and
turn ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is
clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe. Coil the
copper tubing."



Whirlpool remedy
Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice
1.Are the plumbing connections new, causing discolored or
off-flavored ice? Discard the first few batches of ice.
2.Have the ice cubes been stored too long? Throw old ice
away and make a new supply.
3.Does the freezer and ice storage bin need to be cleaned?
See “Cleaning” or “Ice Maker and Storage Bin.”
4.Has food in the freezer or refrigerator been wrapped
properly? Use airtight, moisture-proof packaging to help
prevent odor transfer to stored food.
5.Does the water contain minerals (such as sulfur)? A filter
may need to be installed to remove the minerals.
6. Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or
dark discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration
system needs additional flushing. Run additional water
through the water dispenser to flush the water filtration
system more thoroughly (at least 2 to 3 gal. [8 to 12 L] or 6 to
7 minutes initially). Discard discolored ice.

Let me know what works,
Thank You ,
HUUUM!!

I have a kenmore side by side with water an ice out the door


If you do not find the filter located in the front grill/toe plate below your freezer door or if you do not find it hanging in the top of the refrigerator section then you do not have a filter on your model. You may add an inline filter between the water supply valve of your house and the water connection on the back of your refrigerator. Since you posted it is an older model I bet you do not have a built in filter.
