Question about Refrigerators

Water dispenser has a weak flow. This problem is not new but seems to have gotten worse. Changing the filter does not help. Is there an adjustment on the valve to increase pressure?

    I have a whirlpol american style fridge freezer (side by side). When I change the water filter situated in the grille at the bottom, the percentage does not go back up to 100% when it is changed but remains at the level it was when i changed it. I had this problem last time but have forgotten which buttons to press to rectify it. The instructions for this are not in the handbook or on the water filter. It really is frustrating because i manged to work it out before and have completely forgotten!!!

Filtered water dispenser not working; water seems to be going into fridge instead


This could be a freeze up in the line or blockage or the filtre is plugged and needs changing. If you go to the website and type in the model number there is a lot of information there as how to service it.

Changed filter and now water flow is limited


If the water shutoff valve has a seal like a faucet instead of a saddle valve it's possible a piece of it has broken off and is partially blocking the water line to the fridge. Check the line to see if you can see it or disconnect the line at the inlet to see if the filter screen is plugged.

GE Refrigerator Water dispenser trickles


Side like a water supply issue or a kinked line. Good pressure at first then weak pressure after a short time is a restriction in the water flow.

Old filter in and water started to sputter, made clunky noises and flow very slow. Removed filter and used plug - water ran fine not filtered.- Replaced with new Maytag filter and water sputtered, flow...


Hello there, when new filters are fitted usually they are expected to spurt for a little bit before they normalize and begin to flow properly. Dispense water continuously for 10 minutes. This usually arises when the flow of water through the unit not being allowed through properly and usually takes the new filter a couple of minutes to get accustomed to the water flow and get water circulating through all its components hence the spurts. Alternatively you can check to ensure that the water supply is turned on full and the filter is properly fitted. If all of these are in place then the dispense mechanism might be faulty.
Hope this support has been helpful?
Thank you for visiting FixYa.

Want to know when and how to replace water filter on a ge side by side refrig


Hello,

The water filter status light or indicator, present on some models, will help you know when to change your water filter. The light, or indicator, is located either on the temperature control panel in the refrigerator compartment or on the dispenser control panel on the freezer door.

The indicator will be one of two styles.

If the indicator is a light or series of lights, the light will change from green to yellow. This tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. It is recommended that you replace the filter when the status light changes to red or when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases.
If the indicator resembles a stack of bars, the bar height will decrease and the status display will change from "Good" to "Order." This tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. Replace the water filter cartridge when the water filter status display changes to "Replace" or when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases.
If a filter status light/indicator is not present, the filter should be changed at least once every 6 months. Your filter may need to be replaced more frequently depending on your usage and water quality.

If the water flow to the water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases before 6 months have passed, you may need to replace the water filter cartridge more often. Decreased water flow is a sign that the filter is clogged and needs to be replaced.

If the filter is clogged and you are not able to immediately replace it, remove the filter so the water system is in bypass mode. With the filter removed, the water system will continue to operate, bypassing the filter, and the clogged filter will not cause slow water dispensing or low ice production. However, in order to have filtered water, you will need to install a new filter.


The filter status display will help you know when to change your
water filter. When the display reads 10%, order a new filter. It is
recommended that you replace the filter when the display reads 10% OR when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases.

The filter should be replaced at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and usage.

Step 2
Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille.

Step 3
Pull the filter straight out.

Step 4

Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove it from the filter. IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter.

Step 5
Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and
turn the cap until it snaps into place.

Step 6
Remove the protective covers from the O-rings. Be sure the O-rings are still in place after the covers are removed.

Step 7
Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop back out when the filter is fully engaged.

Step 8
Flush the water system. Use a sturdy cup or glass. Depress and hold the
water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat this process until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever. Hold down for 5 seconds and then release for 5 seconds. Do this on/off process for about 2 minutes. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing

Hope this helpout in changing the water filter......

New water filter, very slow water dispensing


you have to reset the pressure stabilization feature in the water filter circuit before it will deliver a continuous flow of water . sometimes the directions are on the filter itself . if not , you'll have to look it up in your owner's manual or perhaps go online to obtain the information .

FROZEN WATER FILTER - UNRELIABLE TEMPERATURES


About the dual water control valve the side that feeds the ice maker could be defective. Fill the ice maker with tap water and let freeze. If it dumps and does not refill the water control valve will need replaced. Here is a link to the water control valve.

I have a rs21dcns fridge freezer. i'm having trouble getting water from the water dispenser and also having trouble setting the temperature control for my fridge.


The water stops flowing from the dispenser when the external water filter needs changing, stick a new filter and it should start working again, it sometimes takes a few minutes to clear the air after the filter change.
