Did you install the filter all the way, until it seats? There is probably a switch that has to be closed by the filter before the water valve can be opened, thus preventing water from being sprayed inside your refrigerator compartment.

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.

SOURCE: bad smelling water

The water lines are contaminated with bacteria and/or mold. This is a problem with many refrigerators. You need to turn off water and disconnect the feed line and filter. Mix 4 ounces of Clorox(R) in 1 gallon of water and pump it through with a NEW garden sprayer. You can remove the wand and clamp it onto the water inlet. Activate the dispenser while you pump the bleach through the system. Once bleach starts coming out the dispenser, vent the garden sprayer (de-pressurize), Let the bleach sit for 15-20 minutes. Re-attached water using a brand new filter (do not use the old filter and do not put bleach through filter). Run water until no chlorine odor (it can be a while). This process needs to be done at least once a year.

Low water at dispenser


Hello Chuck, thank you for your post!
From the information you have provided you are receiving low water pressure at the dispenser on your Frigidaire refrigerator. This could be due to a dirty or clogged filter and I would check to see when you last replaced it. I have researched model FRS3R5EMB and show the water filter is part number WFCB.

If you have changed your filter within the past six or nine months the low pressure could be due to an obstruction within the water line or an issue within the dispenser. Since it could be anyone of these underlying issues I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope that this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Cut water supply off to frig disconnect water supply line to frig water inlet valve turn water back on to make sure you are getting good water supplied to water inlet valve some times water cut off gets stopped up. If you are getting good water flow to water inlet valve then check to make water valve is opening up all the way. if not then replace valve.

Aqua filter making chirping sound


It sounds like a fault in the board, the cheaping sound is like a muffled alert, trying to tell you it's in trouble. Maybe.

I have a Kenmore side x side. I have changed the water filter and now water is coming from the water spout when water is needed to make ice. Just prior to changing the filter I noticed water coming from...


Sounds like the dual water inlet valve on the back where the water supply is connected, has gone bad and is leaking across to the other side. It may also put water into the ice maker when you use your dispenser.

I changed my water filter and now i need to turn out the filter warning light.


WATER FILTER CHANGE REMINDER
(Select Models)
For some refrigerator models featuring
water filters, the Water Filter Change
Reminder function monitors the life of the
filter and provides a reminder when it is time
for the filter to be changed.
When the system detects either 12 months
of usage, or the filtering of 416 gallons of
water (whichever comes first), the CHANGE
FILTER
indicator light will illuminate. This
indicates that the water filter should be
changed and the light reset.
To reset CHANGE FILTER light: Press and
hold the LIGHT and LOCK pads until the
CHANGE FILTER light blinks (approx. 3
seconds). The control is now reset for 12
months or another 416 gallons.
Note: The Water Filter Reminder will
operate if the filter bypass is in place.
Please rate me!
Thanks, Sea Breeze
