Remove the O ring and clean it as well as the top and bottom housing. use an approved lube to treat the O ring (not vaseline). while applying lube, look for checks or cracks in the O ring. it doesnt take much for a leak.
when you are putting unit together, make sure the air release valve is open

SOURCE: water leaking from backwash when filter is on

The issue is not the filter, but the valve on the filter. There is usually a gasket that seals the different positions of the valve so water does not leak out. This gasket is probably the issue with your filter.

If you have a two piece valve, has screws holding down the handle section to the bottom of valve, then you may have an easier time fixing this issue. You will need to stop your system, release all the pressure from the filter using the Air Release Valve, or take the lid off the pump if you do not have the release valve, wait for about 30 minutes to ensure pressure is released. Then remove the screws around the valve, taking the handle section off in one piece. Check the bottom of the handle piece, see if there is a "spider gasket" or O-Ring that has gone bad.

Your multiport spider gasket is bad. Just replace it by removing the top assembly. Remove the 6 phillips screws on the valve cover and the whole assembly will come off. This is easiest done when the valve is first put on the "Winter" position

Why is My filter hose leaking at the neck right before connection to tightening hose to filter under the sink.


Sounds like either the hose has a hole in it, it isn't seated right, or it isn't tightened sufficiently at the connection. Most often, leaks by the connection are actually leaks at the connection and the water is running down the pipe a bit. Try turning the water off in the main system or at any valve before the connection and then tightening the connection another quarter turn. While directions caution us to be careful not to tighten too tightly, we must insure that our connections are sufficiently tight so that the water doesn't leak out. You may also take the connection off and make sure you have a layer of plumber's silicon tape on the threads and then put the connection back together, making sure it is tight enough so that there are no leaks. Less likely, but possibly, the hose may have a small hole in it. In this case, the water is likely spurting out of the hole rather than slowly leaking down the pipe.

Tip

Removing Whole House Filters


Frequently whole house filters can be very difficult to remove. The canisters become almost impossible to loosen, even after pressing the pressure relief valve and using a housing wrench. The most common reasons for this are the housing was put back on with the housing wrench, debris in the housing threads and a bad pressure relief valve.
http://i.fixya.neth2oservices.jpg
How to remove a stuck filter housing.
1. Turn off the incoming water.
2. By-Pass the Softener
3. Go to the nearest cold water faucet, open it and let the water run until pressure drops significantly.
4. Turn the water off at outlet of filter (If housing has shutoff on top off head, turn this off now).
5. Press and hold the pressure relief button to relieve pressure further.
6. Use filter wrench to unscrew housing (If it still won't loosen repeat steps 2-5).
7. After removing, clean housing thoroughly, make sure threads are clean on filter bowl and housing head. Lubricate threads of housing and head with plumbers faucet lube or silicone.
8. Clean and lubricate the O-Ring (replace the O-ring every couple years or if housing leaks after screwing back on). It helps to flip the O-Ring over a couple times per year.
9. Replace the cartridge filter and screw the housing back on.
10. Turn the incoming water on slowly while holding the pressure relief button down until all air is purged.
11. Open outlet and let water run to cold water faucet until all air is purged.
12. Put softener back in service.

IMPORTANT! Only tighten the filter housing by HAND!
NEVER use the housing wrench to tighten the housing.

I hope these tips help you with the angst of removing stubborn filter housings.

Where is the water filter on frs24wscb?


Good Afternoon Teresa,

I understand you want to know where the water filter is located on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS24WSCB. The water filter is located in the top back right-hand corner. To change filter follow the instructions below:
It is not necessary to turn the water supply off to change the filter.
1. Set ice maker lever (wire signal arm) to the OFF (up) position.
2. Hold filter cup firmly, and unscrew counter clockwise. (Some water could leak out as you remove cup. This is normal.) Filter cartridge should come down with cup. If cartridge remains in housing, pull down gently, while twisting filter back and forth.
3. Empty cup of any substance.
4. The large o-ring that seals the filter system sets in the o-ring groove down inside the cup. Should the o-ring fall out during filter cartridge replacement, simply place it back in the groove prior to screwing the cup back in place. If the o-ring becomes damaged, you will need to order a new one from the Consumer Assistance Center.
5. Discard old filter cartridge.
6. Remove new filter cartridge from packaging, and install.
7. Place filter cartridge in cup. The end with the small o-ring should be up, out of the cup.
8. Screw cup, with filter, back onto housing. Do Not Use Wrench To Reinstall Cup. Filter cartridge will self-align as cup is tightened. Be sure cup is completely tightened with PureSource Plus Logo facing outward. Do Not Tighten Past Stop.
9. Set ice maker level on the ON (down) position.
10. Check for leaks. Open refrigerator door. Wipe any water drops from the filter cup. Run a glass of water. If there is a leak, unscrew filter cup, and reinsert the filter cartridge. Check placement of large O-ring. Reinstall filter cup, making certain it is tightened completely.
11. To condition filter system and purge air from water line, run several glasses of water through water dispenser. This will also assure that the purest water possible is stored in water tank.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Unit leaks after changing filter


I have one of these units, just replaced it last night. First off, determine where it's leaking. The filter cartridge is generally inside a cylindrical cup with a screw thread at the top. Leaks here would either be that the wall has a hole in it (replace the canister), the male threaded area has been damaged and is not round (replace the canister, the mating female thread is damaged or out of round (replace that part), or you're leaking through where the threads meet. (If the leak is not in this are, then the leak-fixing turns into generic plumbing - find out where the water if getting out. If it's hose, replace the segment, if it's a valve, replace the valve or valve seat.

Assuming it's the filter holder - check both thread faces for contaminants or grit. Some filters (like mine, fed with well water, come out covered in gack. If that gack- fine sand/silt from the water, gets in the threads, it can create a widening there on the thread that the screwing-in just spreads down the thread. In any case, clean both surfaces carefully with a clean, lint-free cloth.

After that, I've had great success wrapping a couple of circles of plumbers teflon tape onto the male thread of the filter holder. Get a roll of reasonably wide teflon plumbers tape and run it clockwise (looking down from above the cup) around the thread 2 or three times, keeping some tension on the tape, and then tension tearing the tape. Smooth it down, clockwise. Now mount the filter to the screw in point, and then carefully screw in the filter body. You wrap the tape this direction so that tightening the screw will tend to flow the outer end of the tape toward it's end, rather than back on itself. hand tighten, and then, when firm, tighten another quarter turn or so. The tape will do a great job of sealing the slightly larger gaps between the threads, and probably fixing the leak.

BTW, good pricing on the filters here: http://bit.ly/1Opkuh8 though back ordered at present, and here

Good Luck!

1988 jeep wrangler with oil leak on top of engine and can smell it inside while driving.is it a easy fix?


MOST OIL LEAKS COME FROM A BAD GASKET! IF YOU CAN LOCATE THE SOURCE OF THE LEAK, YOU CAN FIX IT! IT COULD BE JUST A VALVE COVER GASKET LEAK! YOU CAN UNBOLT THE VALVE COVER, REMOVE IT, TAKE THE OLD GASKET OUT, CLEAN UP THE INSIDE, TO INSURE THERE IS NO OLD GASKET STUCK ON THE COVER! PUT THE NEW GASKET ON, AND REMOUNT THE VALVE COVER! RULE OF THUMB: WHEN TIGHTENING IT DOWN, START WITH THE MIDDLE BOLTS, SNUG THEM UP, THEN WORK YOUR WAY TO THE OUTSIDE! ONCE YOU HAVE SNUBBED THEM UP, GO BACK TO THE MIDDLE, AND TURN THE BOLT 1/8 TO 1/4 TURN EACH IN THE SAME WAY ( FROM THE MIDDLE- OUT!

Filter canister stuck


This is a very common problem. There are many reasons for this.

1. The canister was tightened with a wrench when re-installling. NEVER tighten a filter housing with a wrench after replacing the filter! Only by HAND! This is the main reason they are so hard to remove.
2. Filters swell in the housing.
3. The housing itself can swell.
4. The pressure relief button does not work properly.
5. Sediment buildup causes back pressure.
6. Sediment gets trapped on the threads from previous filter changes.
7. Off brand filters, especially those made overseas, frequently are not sized according to specs and can cause these problems. It is best to stay with a brand you know and has worked previously.
8. A bad o-ring will cause people to over tighten the canister because of leaks. Inspect and lubricate the o-ring (every filter change) and replace it yearly.

The best way to remove a stubborn filter canister is to shut off the incoming water, bypass the water softener, go to the nearest cold water faucet and let it run until the pressure dies off. Turn off the outlet on filter, hold the pressure relief button down on the housing (to relieve any more pressure) and remove the housing with the "appropriate" filter housing wrench. If it is still hard to remove repeat the process. After removing the canister, clean the head and canister threads with a clean cloth, lubricate them with silicone lube or plumbers water supply lubricant. It also helps to clean the inside of the housing with a 1/2 tsp of bleach, rinse and wipe it out thoroughly. This prevents any introduction of bacteria into the water system, which is also a very common problem and where "smells" can derive from.

What is the screw or nob in the middle of the intex 530 gallon pump lid for.


That is an air release valve screw. After you fill you rpool with water - open this screw until water comes out then tighten until sealed firmly. Turn pump on.

This allows the air to be released from the pump chamber "priming" the water flow.

Fuel filter


Hi yes i sure can i have the same year of truck you have also. ok your fuel filter will be on the top of your engine towards the front just in back of the cover that says powerstroke diesel. it will be a little round canister that twists off like a lid on a jar. but before you do that you will want to open the fuel/water seperator valve by sliding the little yellow plastic lever located just under the fuel filter. allow this to drain for like 5 seconds. then make sure you close it back up. then just twist the round canistor counter clockwise until the lid can be taken off. once it is off discard of the whole lid due to the new filter will come with a new lid. also throw away the gaskits because your new filter will come with new ones. just be careful and watch for the big gaskit that seals the lid to the canister this is the way you will want to install your new gaskit. beveled side up. but before you install the new gaskets and filter make sure you put a little either motor oil (15w40) or just diesel fuel on the gasket for lube so you do not tear the gaskit when you tighten the new filter lid. but anyways just lube the gasket and install. then just take the fuel filter and install it into the canister and tighten. but do not over tighten just a good snug will work. ( i just use my hands to tighen and loosen them) so there is no need to have to put a wrench on this. after that make sure you wipe up any spilled fuel. and then get into your truck and turn on the key the electric fuel pump will automatically prime and fill the canister with fuel just turn your key on and wait until your wait to start light comes on and then start it up. Make sure you climb back under the hood and fell with your hand to check for any leaks around the canister. after that you are all done. you should replace this filer with every 2nd or 3rd oil change.
