Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a flood

I went to change the water filter on my mothers kenmore side by side refrigerator (dont know model#) and water started gushing out where the filter was. I shut off the water, took the hose from the back of the refrigerator and put it in the sink, cleaned up the mess and called pse&g because she has a worry free contract. They tell her they cannot come to fix this for 2 days. Her water bill will be high by then from this waste of water. What did i do wrong?

    Hi, did you turn the water off at the saddle valve (water source valve)? If the water will not shut off without turning source valve off, you will need to change the inlet valve. Which hose did you unhook?

You didn't shut off the water before you took out the filter. shut the water off and wait until they come to fix it, since she has a contract lol. I mean just shut the water off from where it is connected to the water pipe.

I have a Kenmore side-by-side ultrafresh refrigerator model # 5255210, serial# SM0649567. I cannot find the water filter. Where is the water filter located on this refrigerator ?


Owning 1 of these refrigerators will require you to replace the water filter from time to time, in order to keep the water fresh and the refrigerator running efficiently. Kenmore refrigerators are made by Amana, Frigidaire, GE, LG, and Whirlpool, so it is important to find out which manufacturer made your Kenmore refrigerator, in order to make sure you order the right part. Kenmore refrigerators use filters that are located in the bottom, front panel of the refrigerator. Details can be found on WiKi how to change a water filter on a Kenmore Refrigerator.

Red light on to replace water filter, how to do this?


Knowing just who made your Kenmore refrigerator may some day be important because Kenmore does not make the brands they sell. I am going to try to get you as many different ways the water filter can be changed as I can but if you can you locate the model number of your Kenmore it may make things much easier should you need parts or a manual some day. The number should look like this 521.345678 and located around the inside of the fresh food section door.

Water gushes out when I change the filter on my refrigerator and icemaker does not work.


How often do you change filter. Maybe filter was so clogged that it wasn't allowing water through

Refrigerator gushing water through ice maker filter


Filters themselves don't usually leak. Check full insertion of filter, cracked filter housing or cracked supply line.

Water gushed out freezer door, possible solenoid problem?


The drain is clogged. The drain is usually located inside the freezer on the bottom shelf to the rear. Use a meat baster and a solution of 1 tsp. baking soda and 2 cups of hot water-not boiling to unclog the drain. You probably also have about 1/2 inch of ice build-up on the bottom shelf. This will have to be removed first.

I have the opposite problem


You may have air in the system. When you actuate the dispenser it opens an electric valve in back to start the flow of water. When you release the dispenser air in the system expanding will cause the water to continue to flow until the pressure equalizes.
