Question about Frigidaire FSC23F7D Side by Side Refrigerator

Bypassing a filter

How can one bypass the water filter on a Kenmore Elite A.K.A. Frigidaire Prof Series side by side fridge? The cartridge is the push and click type, right in the front top of the fridge. It's flat and wide but at $50 a pop, it's a waste of money. Besides, it needs changing every month and a half. Or be prepared to sit and wait for a full glass of filtered water.
What gives?

Many thanks,
John

    Thanks for the info. Who knew that it was going to be that easy to get rid of one of my biggest pet-peeves! I have the part (filter by-pass) on-hand and will be using it later tonight. Now all i have to do is add an inexpensive filtration system (say, two stage) to get filtered water with a decent flow rate!
    Thanks again,

They do make a bypass for this which you can get at http://www3.sears.com/.  Will need to know the entire model # from the sticker on the inside of the fridge.  If you have trouble let me know.  I would the the model # also to help further.  Also, it may say something about it in the owners manual.  Let me what you find.

Kenmore Fridge - Bad Testing Water


Your refrigerator definitely has a water filter. If you have gone 5 years without replacing the filter, you and your family have probably been drinking contaminated water, for some time. Water filters should be replaced every three to six months. On some refrigerators, and in cases of higher water consumption, the filter must be changed every 60 days. Sears sells replacement filter cartridges for Kenmore refrigerators.

The water filter on your refrigerator is located at the front base of the unit, in the grille, below the freezer door. There, you will see a round cap. Turn the cap counter-clockwise, until the handle is vertical.Then, pull it out of the grille. The filter cartridge is attached to the cap. After removing the cap and filter, slide the cap off from the existing filter cartridge. Slide the cap on to a new cartridge, and re-insert with the cap handle in a vertical position. Push it in, firmly. Then, turn the cap clockwise, until the cap handle is horizontal.

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!
