Question about Refrigerators
Bottom drawer freezer with ice maker
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.

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.
