SOURCE: water filter replacement

I have the same problem. I did change the filter located on the bottom front panel of the refrigerator, but the red light is still on and NO ice. I can't figure it out and I know if I call a tech, its a 300.00 bill. Frustrated.

SOURCE: I need to bypass a filter in RS267LASH Samsung refrigerator

From the Samsung Online FAQ for my RF266AASH

Can I Use the Water Dispenser Without a Water Filter? spacer.gif The water and ice dispensers will work without an AquaPure water filter installed. The water filter housings are designed as rotary valves that allow the water to bypass the water filter whenever there is no filter or the filter is not in the lock position.
Models designed for use with the AquaPure water filter are shipped with a cap in place to cover the opening and keep it free of debris prior to the installation of the water filter. It is not necessary to have this cap in place for the unit to bypass the water nor is it intended to plug the housing to prevent leaks.
Note: This does not apply to the Quatro Convertible models. The filter must be installed on this model.

SOURCE: location ofwater filter(s) whirlpool modeled22dq

Hi, The filter is located behind the kickplate. You can see the handle for the filter in the kick plate. I believe you turn the filter handle Counter clock wise to remove it. It will tke a little bit of force. Yes this filters the water in the door.
Let me know If I canassist you further. Thanks
Vic

SOURCE: water leak at filter

I had this with a Kitchenaid Superba and wanted to get rid of the filter holder assembly entirely as I have an undersink unit which serves the fridge. I removed the plastic line (nut) at the back of the fridge (which led to the filter holder at the front) where the flexible copper tubing inserted (this was a 3/8' compression fitting-plastic) and also the returning line (1/4" copper compression nut on a plastic line) at the manifold (again in the back of the fridge) where it gets split between the water line and the ice line. I then just connected the 1/4" flexible copper directly to the manifold (1/4" nut, compression sleeve, male-male connector) using a pre-made 1/4" flexible compression line. Sounds complicated but after seeing how the water routes it was fairly quick work.

How can I bypass the fridge water filter on my Samsung RA4287HAR refrigerator?


I know your model is Samsung but on whirlpools when you remove the filter it automatically bypasses the filter through the filter housing I would try that with someone that can turn the water off before you do it just in case I'm wrong about Samsung removal of the filter should allow it to automatically bypass otherwise you will have to buy a I believe a 5/16 Union and just bypass the two lines in and out where you can reach him on the outside

Ge smartwater filtration system has slow moving water


You have to prime air out of new filters. Also if you have a reverse osmosis water system, your water pressure may not be sufficient.
You may have to bypass the filter. Most fridges come with a plug that will fit where the filter goes. good luck

I am installing a reverse osmosis system in my home and need a "dummy cartridge" part to replace the water filter that is in the refrigerator - PureSource RG-100 and how do I get it?


hello.
i know such thing exist but i am having a hard time finding a part number for it. A alternative would be to in essence bypass the ref.filter this way.
The water line on the back of the refrig where the house plumbing connects to feeds directly into the filter first then out of the filter into the water valve to be dispensed to icemaker and door dispenser.you could connect the water supply from the RO system directly to the water valve instead of connecting the RO to the inline refrig filter.

Ice maker mal-formed ice


no "slug" is available however you could just use a reverse osmosis diaphram pressure tank to boost the water pressure. you can also use a water supply tube to bypass the in-refrigerator completely.

I have a problem with my filter, its reverse osmosis. The filters are full of water but the tank is empty and not working.


Hello, first open the Reverse Osmosis faucet and see what the pace of the drip or water stream is. It should be a constant rapid drip. If it is, next disconnect the drain line of the RO System from the Drain Saddle Clamp attached to the plumbing under the sink. The Drain Water should be a "Steady Slow Stream" of water. If it is, next, take a Tire Pressure Gauge and attach it to the Shrader (Tire Valve) Valve at the bottom, side, or top of the storage tank to see what the air pressure is inside of the tank. The Tank pressure should be a minimum of 8-10 psi when completely empty of water. If the tank is empty you should be able to pick it up rather easy. If the air pressure is good in the tank, then next remove the primary Pre-Filter Cartridge from the first filter housing and reattach the filter housing. See if the Dripping from the RO faucet increases in Velocity or Pressure. If so, simply replace the filter. After performing these tests let me know what you discover. Thanks, Victor

My whirlpool ed27dqx refridgerator quit making ice immediately after I had my reverse osmosis drinking water system upgraded. I replaced the ice maker unit and the dual water valve. I have always had water...


The pressure from a reverse osmosis system is not sufficient to operate the ice maker water valve. A water valve requires a minimum of 20 pounds of pressure without a refrigerator water filter, and 35 pounds of pounds of pressure with a refrigerator water filter. Manufactures do dot recommend installing an R/O system on the water supply to a refrigerator. The pressure may have been higher from your old system.

Side by side refrigerator


The ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice

 Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on?
Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
 Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
 Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
 New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
 Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
 Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
 Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply?
This can decrease water pressure

OR
The water dispenser will not operate properly

 Freezer door closed completely? Close the door firmly. If it
does not close completely, see “The doors will not close
completely.”
 Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on?
Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
 Is the water pressure at least 30 psi? The water pressure to
the home determines the flow from the dispenser. See “Water
Supply Requirements.”
 Kink in the home water source line? Straighten the water
source line.
 New installation? Flush and fill the water system.
 Water filter installed on the refrigerator? The filter may be
clogged or incorrectly installed.
 Is a reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply?

GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!! LET ME KNOW IF THIS SOLVED YOUR PROBLEM
