SOURCE: Everything freezes in the refrigerator

Your damper that controls the air to the fridge side is stuck open. It can be caused by moisture getting on it and freezing it so it wont close or by a failure in the electrical circuit that controls it. There was a service bulletin from about 3-4 years ago about defective control assemblys. I have replaced several and as far as I know Frigidaire is still replacing some of them for free if they fall under the model and serial numbers that were affected.
You can tell if it is frozen by turning the controls off and thawing the damper at the upper left rear of the fridge section with a hair dryer.. After you have it thawed out, turn the controls back on and you should hear the damper door motor running. Keep your thermometer in it and check it after a while and see if it shuts off before it freezes.
Post back with the complete model and serial numbers and I will try to locate the service bulletin at my shop computer tomorrow.

SOURCE: leaking pure source 2 ice and water filter

Hi-

Three things

  • Water supply valve may not be completely open.
    Open valve completely.
  • Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough.
    Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
  • Water filter may need changing.
    If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
Hope this help

Thanks for using Fixya!

SOURCE: 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.

Red light on the control panel is lite, and will not dispense ice or water.


Hello Theresa, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided the light on your control panel is red and it is not dispensing water or ice. The red light means the filter is 100% used up and needs to be changed out. When the filter is dirty it will not allow water or ice to dispense or produce. You would need to purchase water filter WF3CB as a proper replacement filter. You can visit your manufacturer's website for assistance with purchasing that replacement filter. I hope this is helpful information for you. -Matt

Can the water filter housing be the cause of slow water when the filter is in place?


Even a new filter will reduce the flow some what. I think the pressure to the filter is low or restricted . that will cause a reduction in flow, no it should not leak, check on the seal.

My 2004 Kenmore leaks water at the water filter housing. I put a new filter in but when I wish to get water it overflows at thde top.


Fist issue, plumbers putty should not be used on any water connection for potable (drinking) water, use Teflon tale if you need to. If the leak is at the housing most likely the housing is bad, replace it.

Water leaking from water filter/housing


Hi,
How old is the filter and are you using the correct filter? After markets don't seal well, and an old filter can leak.
You can remove the filter and use the dispenser to determine if just the filter is the issue, the housing has a by-pass system and works without a filter in it, just would filter water without a filter.
Give that a try, let me know if you need more help.

My house flooded this week causing damage to all flooring. What can cause water to suddenly come into the fridge? When water was turned back on there was water flowing under the fridge? Would a filter...


There are a number of things that would cause this, including the inlet valve and filter. However, a cracked filter is by far the most common cause. Remove the water filter and if it no longer leaks, the filter is bad. If it continues to leak, it is likely the filter housing that is the issue.

Water leak at rear of filter at hose connections. will old filter cause this to clog and force water out of the connection fittings at the clear plastic water lines


Hi,

it sounds like the filter housing could have a crack in it, but It could potentially be a leaking line. In the event the old filter where clogged to the extreme, you'd simply have little or no water flow, not enough pressure to cause a leak though. I've seen these housings damaged by customers forcing the filters in or out in ways never intended.

To check the lines are secure/not leaking...

**FIRST unplug the unit from the wall and turn off the water supply**

either go thru the front by removing the toe panel/kick plate grill, or go thru the back panel, you'll still need to remove the grill at the front though. the 2 screws securing the filter housing to the fridge are at the front behind that grill. (if your lines are long enough -they usually aren't- you can undo the screws and pull the housing out to work on it easier/unimpeded). remove the 2 lines to the filter housing carefully(when removing these you simply push the tab surrounding the line "in" or "down" and pull out the line) and inspect them at the ends where the "seat" in the fitting/"O" ring within the housing. with a razor blade or sharp utility knife, cut off a small amount to insure a clean fitting when re-installing the lines into the housing (simply push them in the way they came out, until they bottom out and you can't pull them back out). once that's done you can turn the water back on, plug the unit in, and check for leaks. Is it actually the lines, or the housing itself ?

I've seen this a few times. the complete housing can be replaced and it isn't that difficult. First verify it is leaking behind the filter at the housing, I could try and help further. the housing is # 2186443 if you need it.

hope that helps,

good luck

Water filter compartment leaking


If you have already replaced the filter and you can see the housing is still leaking, You have to replace the housing and water tank as an assembly (12956202). Make sure you verify it's the filter housing leaking, and not a fitting at the water valve which is right behind the plastic cover around and below the filter housing.
