Question about Electrolux 25.9 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - Stainless-Steel

Frigidaire Pure Source 2 water filter will not install

I have a Frigidaire side-by-side, I purchase a new Pure Source water filter and installed it. When I ran the water dispenser to prime the filter, the filter unit popped out. I pushed it back in, and it popped out again as soon as I pushed the water dispenser lever.

Now, it will not even stay in regardless of the water dispenser lever being pushed in or not.

I remember having the same problem when I installed the last filter, but can't remember what the rep. at Lowe's told me to do about it. Any help is appreciated.

SOURCE: Frigidaire pure source plus refridgater

Hello,

There are a number of things that can cause both the ice and water in the door to stop working. There are two control boards that sit behind the buttons on the dispenser. Either one of them may have failed.

There are several different types of dispensor controls on this refrigerator. You need to download the Factory Repair Manual for your fridge. It will tell you how to remove the dispensor cover and diagnos each board so you know exactly which one to replace. The Repair Manual will be the best source for you at this point.

Thanks

What problems have you encountered with newly designed Pure Source 2 water filter


I spoke with Frigidaire's Customer Service [(706)860-4110] and they said that the filter was redesigned. A customer needs to get a "service flash" number from the customer service representative. The rep will also provide you with local repair companies who will use the service flash number in order to get reimbursed by Frigidaire for fixing/updating the customer's refrigerator... at no charge to the customer.

Where do I find the filter that needs to be changed


Hi

There are two types of water filter fitted to this model they are both located in the top right hand corner of the refrigerator section.

1. The standard water filter looks like an upturned bowl, to change this you need to unplug and switch off the unit, turn off the water supply and unscrew the filter around 1/4 turn anticlockwise.
Replace the filter and tighten the bowl checking that the O rings are in place. You may make a bit of a mess with water dripping out as you remove the filter bowl. These can be quite stubborn if they have not been changed before.

2.Pure source filter is on the face of the unit next to the thermostat, again shut down the unit and turn off the water before removing the filter, there is a small button lower right on the face, when you press this the filter should pop out, again spilling some water.

It is vital that you prime the system properly before using the water or ice this means running at least 2 gallons of water out of the water valve on the front to make sure that all the air is out and that pure water is in the machine.

Frigidaire Pure Source 2 water filter keeps popping out.


My parents frig had the same problem. The steel tabs that hold the filter in place are very small and frail. Heres what I did to solve the problem, at least temporarily. While firmly holding the filter release button, gently bend the tabs together using an extra long pair of curved needle nose pliers.

The water and ice tases and smells bad. New coil and filter.


Replace the water supply line with plastic tubing or copper. Do not use the braided metal or vinyl line as they will cause an odor problem.

Water filter leaking


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.
