Hello,
Turn off the water to the filter. Disconnect the water line from the filter to the refrigerator, at the refrigerator. Point the tubing into a bucket and turn the water on. If you're getting water there, you may have a plugged or defective solenoid. Make sure the wires are connected to the solenoid firmly. If the solenoid has a inlet screen, check it for sediment or water filter debris. If necessary, replace the valve.
If there is no water flow at the tubing to the fridge, shut the valve and remove the tubing from the filter to the fridge, at the filter. Inspect the inside of the filter for packing, ostructions, etc. Try again for water. If you get water there, clear or replace your tubing. If no water, close the valve and remove the tubing at the filter that comes from the wall. Check that end of the filter also for pluggage. Test the water line up to the filter. If you get water now, the filter is plugged or defective. Check the flow direction arrow on the filter, if it has one. Some filters have one-way valves. If no water, close the valve again and remove the tubing connection at the valve. Try again.. If you get water now, the tubing to the filter is plugged. If you don't, it'll be the valve or another plumbing issue. If you are getting water everywhere else, replae the valve. You may have to shut off the water to your house and depressure the lines to get at it.
Good luck. Hope this was useful!
Regards, --W/D--

Low water pressure & ice maker problem


Hi! you don't say how old the refrigerator is, but if it has a water filter, the problem may be that the water filter needs replacement. If there is a water filter, it may be inside the refrigerator side, usually up top towards the back.

If you see a filter, you can buy a replacement at Sears. While your there, check out their water filter subscription. They'll send a water filter to your house on schedule, so you can replace it when needed.

Red light on to replace water filter, how to do this?


Knowing just who made your Kenmore refrigerator may some day be important because Kenmore does not make the brands they sell. I am going to try to get you as many different ways the water filter can be changed as I can but if you can you locate the model number of your Kenmore it may make things much easier should you need parts or a manual some day. The number should look like this 521.345678 and located around the inside of the fresh food section door.

Water won't flow, water line clear and has water running thru it....


Then you have to replace the water filter of the refrigerator. It is having some blockage that is why water is not flowing in it.
Filters situated in the interior liner of the refrigerator compartment of samsung-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  1. Remove the old filter by grasping it and slowly making a one quarter turn to the left.
  2. Pull down gently on the filter to remove it from the mounting bracket assembly. Be careful to not tip the filter, as water may spill out of it.
  3. Discard used filter.
  4. Remove the new filter from its packaging. Apply the appropriate month sticker to the filter to remind yourself to change it again in six months' time.
  5. Fill the filter with water from the tap, and then line the arrow on the filter up with the arrow on the cartridge holder inside your refrigerator.
  6. The filter automatically pulls itself into position as you turn the filter to the right and lock it in place. Be careful to not over tighten the filter into position.
  7. Run water through your dispenser for about three minutes to clear the system. Keep in mind that a newly installed water filter could initially cause water to spurt from the dispenser.
Water by Culligan filter cartridges need to have a water filter adapter installed. This is a one time installment, and once you have this adapter installed, it stays in the refrigerator for all future filter replacements. If your refrigerator already has this adapter in place, do not remove it to replace the filter.
Smart Water filter cartridges do not require the use of the water filter adapter. If for some reason your refrigerator has an adapter in place already, you will have to remove it before installing a Smart Water filter cartridge. The adapter is removed in the same manner as the filter itself: with a gentle quarter turn to the left.
Note: Replacing this type of filter is a quick process - there is no need to unplug your refrigerator when replacing it. Also, this filter should be replaced every six months.
Hope this was helpful to you. Thank you for using fixya.

  1. Grasp the filter's end and make a one-quarter turn to the left.
  2. Pull the filter straight out.
To replace with a new filter, repeat these two steps in the opposite order, making sure to first remove the red cap from the filter. Proceed by pushing the filter straight into the slot, and then giving it a one quarter turn to the right.

Side by side refrig - ice maker and water don't work after replacing the filters. is there a re-set?


Removing a water filter from the inside of your Frigidaire brand refrigerator:


Removing and replacing a water filter - upper right hand corner inside location

Filters situated up front in the refrigerator compartment of Frigidaire-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  1. Open the door of the refrigerator compartment of your Frigidaire brand side-by-side refrigerator. The filter is located in the upper right hand corner. It has a push button for quick release just to the right of the filter.


  2. Locate the icemaker On/Off power switch and place it in the OFF (o) position.


  3. Push in on the filter release button and pull the filter all the way out to remove it. Remove new filter from its packaging and remove the protective plastic caps. Insert the new filter in the same manner it was removed. Make sure to push in firmly on the filter until you hear the filter cartridge click in place.


  4. Return the icemaker's power switch to the On (l) position.


  5. Condition the filter by running water through the dispenser for about three minutes. This will flush the filter of all fine carbon particles.


  6. In some models, you will have to reset the filter status light. It is located on the ice and water dispenser control panel. Push in on it for ten to fifteen seconds until the green, red, and amber lights flash. If your refrigerator model does not have a filter status light, you should make a note on a calendar, or place a month sticker on your filter to remind you to replace the filter again in six month's time.



Note: Replacing this type of filter is a quick process - there is no need to unplug your refrigerator or shut off the water supply when replacing it. Also, this filter should be replaced every six months.
