Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator
My water filer is leaking into the top compartment on the door. The fridge is less than 6 months old. What could be the problem? I tool out the filter and it is not leaking anymore.
Hello, sounds like the o-ring for the housing that the filter goes into was damaged. You can get a replacement o-ring from your locale appliance parts wholesaler/dealer - OR if you have a really good locale "Hardware" store - remove the o-ring from the male part of the housing that stays in your fridge (pinch it between you fingers around the diameter and you should be able to get it out). They should be able to match it for you - If I recall it is a standard size. If you cannot find one right away you may be able to get it to stop leaking temporarily by getting some Sillicone O-Ring GREASE and applying it to the o-ring. This may stop the leak but I would still replace the oring when you can. Good Luck Dr. Know

There has got to be a better solution to this water filter leaking problem than a pressure reducer because there's to many people that have already installed a water pressure reducer recommended by Frigidaire (that has been discontinued because they didn't work) and are still having the same problem over and over. The only guaranteed fix is by-passing the water filter all together but that means no filtered water or ice cubes. I hope the Frigidaire people can do something because this is ridiculous.

Hi, I notice alot of people having trouble with leaking ice makers. I have an older refrigerator that had the same problem for years. Taking the ice maker apart and checking all seals did nothing. Then one day I had an RO (reverse osmosis) system installed under my kitchen sink. The water line to feed the ice maker was also hooked up to the RO system. I noticed immediately that the ice maker quit leaking. I asked the RO guy about this and the answer was very simple. My household water pressure was too high for the shut off valve in the icemaker. The RO system acted as a pressure reducer to the icemaker. Now you don't need to install an RO system to reduce water pressure. A simple inline pressure regulator will work. This regulator would be installed inline between the city pressure and the icemaker only. No need to cut down pressure to the whole house. I would strongly recommend having your household water pressure checked as a starting point. My city water pressure runs about 60 psi. This fix was done about 7-8 years ago. Ice maker has been happy ever since.
