Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore side by side dirty water

I install a new water filter after a year except I forgot to turn it when I ran the 3 gallons of water through it. I did see no problem with the water. However, when I did turn after running the water through it, it now always seems to have a film of something floating in the newly dispensed water. What do I need to do. I have run about 20 gallons of water through it and it still has the problem. Is it a broken membrane in the filter and I need a new filter(thought I read that somewhere)?

The original cap for the filter, was supposed to be a plug bypass, for application of outside undersink filter. Using, this, one can check to see if the filter was the contaminant here. You need to be, more specific, to explain a problem. Something is too too generasl,,, color, consistancy, odor, quantity, filter has a fine fine filtrationl unit on the outlet, and if defective the charcoal residue may come out. You can remove filer and pass suppy water thru and review the effluent coming out. ??? Regards, fmauka

Why my refrigerator is leaking water from the top where the water filter is located?


Shut off water supply valve. Relieve water pressure by dispensing water. Unscrew water filter. Examine to see if the gasket is damaged or if filter was loose and just needed tightening. Or simply replace water filter with the correct water filter that your GE refrigerator calls for.

Water tastes funny


if there filter was not properly installed you would not have any water at the door.
you do not need to turn the water supply off to change the filter.
you should be able to push the filter light for three seconds,they do not turn off they just change color

When you use the shop vac for cleaning up water you must remove the filter.

The filter is for dust particles not for water
I would replace your filter and dump the water out from the shop vac, Also after each time you vacuum up water dump it out of shop vac.

I hope this helped you happy new year!

Whirlpool Side by Side- semi-translucent tape likedebris in water


Sounds like the plastic from the icemaker is chipping off the unit in the ice making process.

If your water is running clear except through the refrigerator that is my suggestions. Although normally the plastic color is blackish.

Kenmore side by side dirty water


the problem might be linked ot your reverse osmosis system itself, something about filtering and storing previously filtered water, which if i remember correctly creates a "harmless" bio film the consistency of what appears to be brine shrimp sized particles floating in water. so i would remove the filter from the refig and flush out again.

Particles floating in whirlpool filtered water.


okay - we have had this same problem for around 6 weeks - We called a service repairman to come out and he said that these "floaties" are harmless bacteria. We should disconnect the filter and flush the system by using 1 gallon of water a day (wasting it) after the chlorine in the water is allowed to build up again then the "floaties"- bacteria- will go away---- gross :-( We will see if it works---
