LG LRBC22544ST Water Filter Problem

At first I thought it was a faulty water filter, but I've installed a new one and have the same issue.  After turning and clicking in the water filter and then opening the supply line, water leaks from the filter area and quickly fills the shelves and onto the freezer area.  Since it's a new filter, I'm assuming it's not the filter that's the issue; can anyone help?

SOURCE: Ice maker quit - LG refrigerator model LFX25960ST, ice maker PN 5989JB0001A

I have the same problem.

Ice in the gears.

Splash from opening and closing the door when liquid water is present seems to be the logical problem.

I had cleared the ice before, thoroughly dried the icemaker and reinstalled it. It worked until I adjusted the icemaker to make large cubes.

I will reinstall it and see how long it last. I will also complain to Sear about the short life of this device.

SOURCE: My new refrigerator's ice maker and water dispenser doesnt work

Its probably way too late, but ours was delivered / came with the water pipe being crushed at the front right at the bottom of the fridge/freezer. So I would check the full length of this small diameter pipe.

SOURCE: LG refrigerator won't dispense water any more

The water line is freezing in the door due to deteriorated insulation. The only fix I have found to work on my fridge was to defrost the inside door with a blow dryer. Then place a weedeater replacement line (the orange 10" or so size you find at Lowes' or Home Depot) up through the dispenser nozzle, If the line only travels about 3-4 inches up the nozzle, then ice is still in the tube. Blow dry it until you are able to get water to dispense. After the tube is ice-free, place the weedeater line up throuth the dispenser nozzle leaving about 1/8" sticking out. The dispenser will still work with the line stuck in it. The dispenser will probably freeze again in about 8 hours, But all you need to do each time this happens is to pull the weedeater line out, dispense the water to unclog the ice, and place the weedeater line back in the nozzle. I have been using this method for about a week now and it works great. My GE Side-by-side is also 4 years old and this seems to be a problem with all of them. There is a part you can order to fix the problem, but I have heard it may not work.

How do I buy and replace the water filter on my fridgeGWL207FBQA?


In a nut shell this is how to do it:
Find the water filter housing in the top area of the Refrigerator. Remove the cap/cover (turn left). Remove the old and install the new filter (turn it to the right to lock it in place). Re-install the cover and drain 2 gallons to flush the system.

Here's what the maker says: (look about 1/4 down the page until you see "Changing your LG REFRIGERATOR's Water Filter" and follow the steps. http://www.lg.com/us/support/answers/refrigerators/scheduled-maintenance
The filter number is 5231JA2006. Costs about $50 (check eBay or Amazon). Or here at LG http://www.lg.com/us/appliance-accessories/lg-LT600P-water-filter
Hope this helps...

No water when water filter is replaced for RFG298HDRS/XAA


You are not screwing the new filter in right/ it is not seating. I experienced the same problem; you need to "break the seal" on the new filter.

We've had a Cuisinart DCC-2000 coffee maker for less than a year: 1) it stops brewing about halfway through the brewing cycle (with plenty of water still in the reservoir, and 2) the "Clean" light


This problem is caused by a clogged water filter in the unit.

Unplug the coffee maker.

Open the top panel where you normally pour in the water and set the coffee filter.

Gently pull up on the tap that sticks up in the back left corner of the open top. This will free a long plastic part that has a compartment at the bottom that contains a filter filled with charcoal.

Unsnap the small compartment that holds the filter and clean it gently under running water with light brushing.

If there is a lot of coffee build-up, the water chamber where you normally pour in fresh water needs to be cleaned out. Pour in a cup of water and invert the unit over a large sink pouring out the water through the opening you normally use to fill the unit.

Repeat this until you remove the coffee grounds.

Let the unit dry fully before plugging in to run again.

Replacement water filter won't stay in place.


I too had this problem...the metal tabs in the filter housing need to be bent in toward the center to hold the new filter tighter...I also filed the tabs that rest on the spings down a bit to lessen the tension. So far so good!

Water from the fridge tastes bad


How old are the water lines that run to the fridge? Is this a new fridge? Was the water good and now it is bad all of a sudden or is the first time using the water?

How to replace the filter


Hello,

Take the new water filter out of the box and remove the two red shipping caps on the end of the filter.
The water filter is located on the front panel down near the floor.
Push the release button located just to the left of the water filter grille cap, this will release the filter.
Remove the grille cap from the filter by twisting it counterclockwise.
Reinstall the grille cap on the new water filter.
Insert the new water filter in the refrigerator making sure the words on the filter are the correct side up.
Push the water filter in until it clicks in place.
Flush Water After Installing New Filter
Be sure you flush out the water from the new filter after you replace it! Many readers are having trouble with airlocks because they are skipping this important step. Kenmore recommends you run the water out of the water and ice maker for a few minutes to flush out the new filter. This also helps remove air bubbles from the system. If you don’t do this it’s possible that the water dispenser may not work properly due to an air lock.

This particular water filter claims to reduce:
Cysts and turbidity – linked to gastrointestinal problems
Lead
Chlorine – taste and odor for better tasting water
Sediment – for clearer water
o-Dichlorobenzene – linked to risk of liver, kidney, or circulatory system problems
Benzene – linked to increase risk of cancer and anemia.
Note continue changing the filter on a regular basis.
Hope this helpout....

Refrigerator dispenses ice, but does not dispense water?


Unfortunately, the housing that the water filter fits into is also the housing for the solenoid controlled water valve, and that is the most likely failure item.

Water dispensing problem.origional filter worked for 8 months. installed new filter unit worked properly for 1 month. replaced filter again filter unit worked for 3 days. replaced filter again. filter...


Is there a filter on the back of the refrigerator that the water line hooks to? I can't remember if all of them have one or not. It sounds like either your water line is clogged or the valve feeding the line might have been turned way down. I would turn the valve off, disconnect the hose from the refrigerator and put the end in a large bowl or bottle and have someone turn the water on to see if you have good flow through the line. Best of Luck
