Check that there isn't too much cold air coming from the freezer through that little duct in the upper left. This can be caused by in inoperative damper control

SOURCE: I need to bypass a filter in RS267LASH Samsung refrigerator

From the Samsung Online FAQ for my RF266AASH

Can I Use the Water Dispenser Without a Water Filter? spacer.gif The water and ice dispensers will work without an AquaPure water filter installed. The water filter housings are designed as rotary valves that allow the water to bypass the water filter whenever there is no filter or the filter is not in the lock position.
Models designed for use with the AquaPure water filter are shipped with a cap in place to cover the opening and keep it free of debris prior to the installation of the water filter. It is not necessary to have this cap in place for the unit to bypass the water nor is it intended to plug the housing to prevent leaks.
Note: This does not apply to the Quatro Convertible models. The filter must be installed on this model.

SOURCE: Water dispenser quit working on GE Profile French door 'frig.

The dispensers could be clogged with mineral deposits. If you look in your care manual it talks about a water vinegar solution that you pour into the top of the despenser, let sit, and then drain it through the back. I had a similar problem and it was because some of the water that was sitting in the top of the unit(where the gallon jug sits; under the black think) was full of frozen water which was blocking the water dispenser.

The water could have been frozen in the door and melted when your fridge warmed up.


The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.



The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Frigidaire French doors not making enough ice .


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator is not producing enough ice. I would advise to check and make sure that your water filter has a secure connection, if need be uninstall and reinstall the water filter to assure connection. Your filter should be changed every six months, if it is has not been changed recently I would recommend exchanging it.

If you continue to receive low ice production it could be an issue with your water line or water valve, I would seek assistance from a professional for proper diagnose and repair of your appliance. I hope this helps. -Matt

No water when water filter is replaced for RFG298HDRS/XAA


You are not screwing the new filter in right/ it is not seating. I experienced the same problem; you need to "break the seal" on the new filter.

I have a Frigidaire side by side - FRS26HF6BW2 - It will leak water from the filter cartridge area into the refrigerator. It has done this 3-4 times in the past year but never did this before. Any words of...


I have the exact same issue. If you look closely at your filter, it probably has a crack in it. The workmanship on the filters is apparently horrible and the material is too thin causing it to crack and leak within 2-3 months of purchase. I was replacing filters at $45 each every 2-3 months and complained to Lowe's where I purchased the Refrigerator as it's still under warranty. The sent a repair man who tested my water pressure which was fine and he pointed out the cracks on the last two filters that I had saved. He said he sees this all the time and that there's nothing you can do about it but complain to Frigidaire. Well that's been a waste of my time so either we deal with a leak or we don't use the water dispenser in the door. Maybe if some of us band together and file a law suit against Frigidaire they might listen.

My water dispenser does not give me water


1st make sure you got water to the frig.
defrost the frig by turning it off for 2 days with the doors open. Sometime the water freezes inside the door and the water dispenser doesnt work. the turn back on and see if you have water. every 6 months you should change the filter (it could be the problem too)

Water stopped working, ice working on door


Have you changed your filter? Make sure to change these every 6 months, I believe. Also, if your filter is new/ or within the 6 months, you may have a water valve issue. You'll need to replace the water valve, which is on the back of the unit, towards the bottom, behind the panel. You can remove the panel, its all Phillip screws.

Water is slowly trickling out of water dispenser


This is usually because the water filter on the supply line needs replacing.
If it has not been replaced within 6 months, then this will probably cure it.
