Re: filter

Hello, what is your water pressure at the house? Is it above 30psi? If so you might try replacing the filter maybe you got a defective one? I know this may sound silly but was the wrapper removed from the filter? Good Luck! Dr. Know

Good Afternoon Joe, thank you for your post!

I understand the water dispenser of your Frigidaire refrigerator is not working. First, I suggest checking that the water valve is completely open (typically located on the back of your refrigerator). Second, when was the last time the filter was changed? Most side-by-side filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency. Also keep in mind that a clogged water filter or a blocked supply water valve may also lead to no water to the dispenser. If that is not the issue, than your refrigerator could possibly have a faulty valve, dispenser control board and/or failed water valve diode. Generally it is a good idea to have a professional take a look at it to get to the root cause. Cost of parts and technical expertise entailed in these types of replacements can be a bit tricky.

No water after replacing filter

Did you turn the water supply off when you changed the filter and then purge the water for a total of 3 minutes?

After changing water filter,ice maker no longer makes ice.

Is the filter in correctly? no offense. Give it time to purge any air and operate by its timer and cycle. Changing the filter has no connection with ice making , as long as it gets water.

Ice maker not making ice

there is a separate solenoid that controls the icemaker its on the back of the fridge on the bottom.

it may have stopped working or the filter is clogged.

its a simple fix but it takes some know how to do so.

Food stays frozen regardless of temperature setting

It is possible it has a bad thermostat but most likely cause would be a bad damper motor.  It is the vent inside the fridge that opens and closes, based on temp. setting, to allow cold air from the freezer into the fridge section.
