Hello Dwane;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number of your unit. The water filter location is dependent on the model number. The model number is located on a label on the inside of the fresh food section liner.

You have a bottom freezer. In general the water filter is located in the upper right hand corner of you right side fresh food section.

You may have a screw on the side panel to remove the cover, or some retainer clips, of which you must squeeze the cover housing to remove, or you may have free access.

Once locating, or accessing the water filter, grab the base and turn 1/4 turn clockwise to release and pull down. Insert the new water filter, insert and turn counter wise to the right.

Purge the air out of the filter system. Water filters are dry and have air in them. With your water dispenser fill several cups until al of the air is purged out. There will spiriting sounds.

You replace your water filter when you notice your ice cubes are small & when the water flow from your dispenser is low. The change water indicator light is a timer. It is set to cycle every six months. It is like a egg timer. It is not connected to anything.
Depending on the size of your family, and the usage you may need to change the water filter every six months or every 1-1/2- 2 years.

SOURCE: fan runs constantly, freezer ice melting, bottom drawer in refrig

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    SOURCE: Our 3 yr old LG Model LFC25760SW French door

    Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


    Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
    Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

    Can you tell me why my ice ain't freezing but everything else is


    Hi,

    Its possible to freeze item below the evaporator, but with out a fan moving air the ice must be located above the evaporator. I hope this helps and answers your question. I would look for a fan issue, or get me a model number and its possible I can assist you further if needed. Thanks

    I have a Kenmore Model 795 refrigerator with an ice maker in the bottom drawer. We purchased the refrigerator in August of 2008 (currently November of 2010) and finally hooked up the ice maker last week. ...


    The 795 model you make reference to only tells me that this is and LG bottom mount Refrigerator. There are several numbers missing from the model number. This is and example of a good part number: 79577253602 The filter for bottom mount LG units is usually in the upper RH side of the fresh food compartment. See this link: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fK0810366-00001.png (item 611E)

    The weak chlorine taste should fade unless the source is from your house water supply. Let the ice catch bin fill completely once and then dump everything in it. After that your ice should be normal. I think you may be noticing the taste you get from unused plastic tubing / water carrying parts. Just so you know if anyone used bleach to clean the freezer compartment the ice maker will catch any bleach water drips and pass that immediately into the ice. (Have very long customer warranty story with repeated in home visits about how I learned about people using bleach to clean freezer compartments!)
    I digressed... just dump the ice collection bin after it is full one time and then check the ice taste on any ice after that. If you think maybe the taste is originating from the freezer compartment get a box of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda, cut off the top of the box and leave it in your refrigerator freezer for 6 weeks then toss it in the trash.

    Another note no manufacturer will tell you is if you install a cheap in line water filter before the refrigerator water connection you can make the EXPENSIVE ONE on inside of the fresh food compartment last a very very long time.

    MODEL # 59673504203 DRAWER IS ALWAYS FREEZING EVERYTHING IN IT. NOW NO ICE IS BEING PRODUCED


    I had the same problem. I pulled the drawer all the way out. In the back is a vent flap. Ice had formed on it keeping it open. I chipped off the ice so the flap can move. This stopped the freezing veggies.
    My ice maker stopped working. It was suggested I change the water filter as it may be clogged preventing water moving to the ice maker. As I am getting a new refrigerator I all not be buying a new filter.
    This message is little late for the original poster but may help someone else.

    My refrig stop making ice after I changed the water filter. I had the filter out for about 3 hrs, would this cause the problem?


    Hi, first , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If if freezes , and dumps , replace the water valve. If it does not dump the cubes , replace the ice maker. After pouring the water into the ice maker , remove the bottom kick panel , and clean the bottom coils , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp . An ice maker has to be 5 degrees , to operate , correctly . If ice maker starts working , after cleaning the coils , GREAT ! ( it does happen ) .

    Take care

    Ice maker filling with water but not freezing into cubes.


    Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

    The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
