Is it the square filter that goes in the upper right hand corner inside the refrigerator? If it is, you will need to replace the filter holder.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Pure Source 2 water filter keeps popping out.

My parents frig had the same problem. The steel tabs that hold the filter in place are very small and frail. Heres what I did to solve the problem, at least temporarily. While firmly holding the filter release button, gently bend the tabs together using an extra long pair of curved needle nose pliers.

SOURCE: The water and ice tases and smells bad. New coil and filter.

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.

Replaced Frigidaire Pure Source 2 filter and it keeps popping out after about 10 min or after about 5 glasses of Water. This is not the 1st time we have replaced the filter. Could it be just a Bad Filter?

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.

Water filter keeps popping out

Too high of pressure I the water supply. The lines may have frozen up. If you can I would defrost the freezer and leave the water on and try to cycle it through until you get good water flow. Then throw the filter back in and see how it gos. Good luck

I replaced my GE profile MWF water filter (identical GE part) and now I dont have water dispensing and don't have a working ice maker

Quite frequently carbon fines can be flushed from filter and plug the filter. If you have the bypass plug to replace the filter. Put that in and flush system completely. Take the filter and flush it at the kitchen sink. It is best to fill these with water before installing and flush the carbon fines before installing in fridge.

We have a Frigidaire side by side with the in door ice and water system that utilizes the Pure Source 2 system. Dealer states that the filters whould last forever. After a short period, maybe 4 weeks or...

no water filter on a ref will last forever, the company that built the filter would have filled chapter 7 11 or something

but the filter my or my not be the issue

what is the size of the ice cubes that it is making
are the normal size with no hollow centers
if you use the water in the door does it start out at regular stream and then decrease as long as you are getting water

you have replaced the water valve, i dont think it is bad, keep it as a spare
i wo uld go to the line valve that the ref is connected to the house plumbing and if it is a saddle valve, remove it and check for an obstruction at the saddle valve, and while it is removed bore ou the hole into the pipe it is clamped to to 1/8 of an inch with a drill bit and you should be ok

Water leaking at filter

If this is a Pure source 2 filter in the upper right hand side of fridge, Purchase an Electrolux filter bypass, P/N 241944302. This is a empty cartridge that lets water flow without water drip when filter is clogged. Fridgidaire/Electrolux made no bypass in these filters, so when clogged they leak. Plus they NEVER last more than about 30/60 days. If you use the bypass, you will need a separate filter elsewhere such as in water line under sink or behind fridge. Call me at 816-560-8545 if you need more info.
