SOURCE: Waterline on back of refridgerator keeps popping out and leaking

There should be a compression fitting that seals the water tube to the fridge. The fitting looks like a brass or plastic nut that the tubing sticks into. Shut off water supply to the fridge and carefully remove the fitting nut...there should be cone shaped compression ring inside the fitting nut. Slide the nut over the tube, then the compression ring over the tube. If the compression ring is tapered towards one end, then put the narrow end towards the end of the tube. Now stick the tube up to the fitting on the fridge where the nut screws on to the fridge. Hold the tubing firmly against the fitting and slide the compression ring and nut up to the fitting and screw the nut back on (compression ring should be inside the nut). You must hold the tubing firmly against the fitting until you get the nut tightened back down good with a wrench. This should take care of it.

If you find that the tip of your tube end is damaged, then you may have to cut off the tip of the tube to get it to seal and hold. If you find that the compression ring is damaged (won't slide over the tubing) or missing, then you can go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get a new nut and compression ring...they are cheap. You can also get new tubing there if you need it.

SOURCE: replacement water filter won't stay in place.

I had a similar problem. In fact, the new filter couldn't be made to stay flush with the fridge housing. This filter, as it turns out, has been redesigned by the mfg. The unit is now opaque as opposed to the original design, which is covered in white plastic. The reason that the filter will not lock in place is that there is a bar between the two connectors which is longer than that in the original. I was told that there are certain Frigidaires which will not accommodate ths new design. This leaves me with o alternative than to find a source for the original filter design - the one in which the activated carbon is visible through the clear plastic. I'e ordered one from eBay and am hopng for the best.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: Pure Source 2 Filter keeps popping out...Just replaced it. No pressure changes and the old one , still works fine..if I put it back in...but the new one just pops out after about 10 min or 5 or so gl

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.

Why does the new filter keep popping out of the receptacle.


Either the filer is the wrong type or it may be CrossThreaded.
Cross threading is when you spin the filter on at an angle and damage the alignment. Popping off means it failed to seat properly. Take it off, clear any particles that may be in the grooves, and reattach gently and slowly until it can no longer be twisted on. Make it a tight seal. Wiggle it by hand and see if it stays in place. If it pops off in your hand, you need to try another filter in its place.

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

Had two filters new for dc25


DC25. If you haven't tried this already, try pushing the filter firmly into place until you hear an audible click. This should stop the filter popping out of place.

How to change water filter in this refrigerator


Hello,

The filter status display will help you know when to change your
water filter. When the display reads 10%, order a new filter. It is
recommended that you replace the filter when the display reads 10% OR when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases.

The filter should be replaced at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and usage.

Step 2
Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille.

Step 3
Pull the filter straight out.

Step 4

Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove it from the filter. IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter.

Step 5
Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and
turn the cap until it snaps into place.

Step 6
Remove the protective covers from the O-rings. Be sure the O-rings are still in place after the covers are removed.

Step 7
Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop back out when the filter is fully engaged.

Step 8
Flush the water system. Use a sturdy cup or glass. Depress and hold the
water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat this process until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever. Hold down for 5 seconds and then release for 5 seconds. Do this on/off process for about 2 minutes. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing system.


Hope this helpout.....

Pentair sand dollar filter is leaking water when backwash not on


If you have the valve in the Filter position and it is still leaking water out the backwash line, the problem is the Spider gasket inside the valve itself. However, the valve that usually comes with the Sand Dollar filters has the gasket glued to the Diverter, and has to be replaced as one piece, sorry about that!

If you have a manual on the filter, go to the parts page dealing with the valve. If you do not have a manual, the link below will take you to one online:

http://www.pentairpool.com/pdfs/SandDollarOM.pdf

The part that needs replaced in Item #8. What you will do when you get the replacement part is to stop your system, close any valves to stop the flow of water so you do not loose too much. Then you will open up the Air Release Valve and release all the pressure in the filter. Pentair usually recommends that you wait at least 30 minutes after this to make sure there is no presure in the tank. Once this is done, you will remove the screws holding the top part of the valve to the bottom, place the screws is a safe place so yo do not lose them - did that once!- and pull the handle portion up, as a single piece.

Place the top part on a flat surface, and remove the Handle Screw (Item #3) while holding down on the top of the valve. This will help keep the spring in the handle from popping up on you! Slowly raise your hand to allow the spring to expand, no parts will go flying this way! (did that one too!) Then just pull out the old Diverter and replace it with the new one. Reassembly is a bit difficult because of that spring, but once the Handle Screw is in place, it is pretty easy. You DO NOT need to lube the gasket/diverter, so you just line up the diverter sections with those in the bottom of the valve and replace the screws. Just in case, the WASTE position is always OVER the Waste Port on the valve.
