Nope. You can't bypass the tube style filter... it's the housing that cracked. That has to be removed and replaced. Sorry to give ya bad news, Mariner.

Kenmore refrigerator water filter bypass


That is a tough one. You can remove the water hoses from the housing but it won't be easy. Unless the housing itself is broken I don't think I would recommend bypassing it. Now if you really do want to go this route, here's how I would do it.
1) Turn off the supply
2) Carefully remove both lines from housing
3) Using the proper fittings, splice enough line so that you can position the new inline filter at the rear of the unit.
4) Attach the proper quick connect fittings to the new lines.
5) Install the new inline filter .(You may wish to secure the new assembly to the back of the unit)
6) Turn supply back on and check for leaks
As far as which filter, there are many to choose from. I would just get an inexpensive, inline filter made for ice makers. just be sure you get the correct quick connect ends for your new installation.
You can also purchase a complete kit which comes with mounting hardware, a filter and everything you need. This won't be inline though. It will be a separate housing which you will just mount remotely.
Good Luck!

I have a leak inside my Kenmore Coldspot Model # 106 72104100. It is not coming from the icemaker.


If the water filter is old the seals will leak into the evaporative tray overflowing it. Replace the filter or give it a turn to bypass.

Unit is leaking water on the left side and after we fill up the water container. We are placing it in the proper position but it leaks constantly. It there a service fix for such a situation? ...


Hi
If its leaking under the water tank, its this.
There is a seal on top of the machine under the water tank. To get to it, remove the water tank, and set aside. There is a large doughnut shaped cap on top of the machine. Slip a screwdriver on the outside edge of the cap and pry up gently. When it snaps up, go to the other side of the cap and do the same. There is a black seal in the center and if you stick your finger in the center and it lifts out, it needs to be replaced. Clean any residue inside the opening with a Q-tip.
When you get the new seal, it won't slip in. Insert it at a slight angle (double lips down), then take your finger nail and run it around the bottom edge of the seal until it slips in, then push down. Snap the cap back on and your set to go.
If its leaking under the machine, its your boiler.
If its leaking into the dredge drawer, its the thiumbscrew in the brew unit, that holds the filter screen in.
If its under your drip tray there is a pocket behind the brew unit that has a cloged drain, just above the center of the drip tray in back.

It's my mother's Side by side Kenmore (4 yrs old). Iciles appear to form UNDER the icemaker unit. Filter has been changed and temp adjusted. What could be the problem?


it is possible that the tray itself has a crack in it. The icicles tend to make me beleive that you have a cracked tray because ice accumulates in the form of a cicle by consistantly dripping, running downward and over time the freezing occures . You might take food coloring and mix with water. Pour this mixture into yhe icemaker tray with the unit off and let it sit. If the tray is leaking the food coloring will let you know, if no leaks then it has too much water being allowed into the unit or too much water pressure. Good Luck
