Question about Frigidaire Gallery Series GLHS269ZDB 36" 26.0 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator w/ 7 Button Dispense...
There was a redesign in the Puresource 2 filters (FC100 WF2CBs) that introduced a very very slight mismatch on the latching mechanism used. I've compared them and it's about a 32nd of an inch off. In the back of the socket where the cartridge is you will see two metal clamps. If you push the filter eject button, you will see them manually open and close. That is the mechanism that is not working due to the difference in the redesign. It is a design flaw in the new filters.
I understand it has been corrected but in the mean time, there are a lot of bad ones out there. If it does have this flaw, I've never been able to get them to latch in and hold. My final solution was to build a new sliding lever that would lock over the front of water filter and hold it in place. It's very easy to do. You just need to make a latch.
We are goint to Drill a small ( slightly greather than 1/8") hole about 1" to the right of the filter centered in the middle of the filter vertically. With the filter out, It should be hollow on the right side of the filter and you can reach your fingers around the right side edge and feel where the whole will be. Mark an drill your hole. It's 1/8" thick plastic and is easy to drill. Using stainless steel bolt, nut and washers a 2" flat metal with a 1/8" whole, and tighten it down firm and build a swinging latch. Push the water filter in place and close the latch. If the waterfilter has any room to play, try devising a wedge to hold it in place (the washer will do that, I used a little stickon rubber foot). The latch has to put pressure on the filter cartidge. Now try the water watching it. If done right, the filter will be held in place, no leaks or exploding waterfilters.
If your listening Electrolux/Frigidaire the old design was 100 time superior to the new design. It would be nice to be able to purchase the old model even if it cost a little extra.

Open valve completely.
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.
If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
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.

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.
