Regrigerator water pipe is broken

On the back of the refrigerator there are three water pipes attached. Two of them going into the water filter (I guess). The one is thinner and the other is thicker. The ticker pipe has been broken. Can I know the part number and instructions to repair myself? Thanks.

    That's too bad that your fridge water pipe has broken, especially because it's the thicker one. I have also been struggling with water. I can't get any in my house at all, and I think that there's something broken in one of my pipelines. We should probably both find a repair person who'll be able to look at our pipes.

Refrig's only use 5/16 or 1/4" dia. lines. you can cut and splice the broken line if you can find a 5/16" X 5/16" quick disconnect coupler. homedepot only carries 1/4'. try your local plumbing store.

Culligan reverse osmosis filter system has stopped providing water from the sink mounted faucet attached to the system.

Since unfiltered water went through it for a couple days, I would guess you have mineral build up. If this is the case, be careful about trying to use it. There are certain products you can buy to unclog the pipes. Most will have you pour them down through the pipes connected to the polishing filter. If you can take the pipes apart, I suggest going pipe by pipe to see where the build up is.

Tbx21ji refridgerator has water inside the bottom of fridge. it keeps happening

Mine did the same thing. Pull refrigerator out so that you can access the back. Take off lower dust cover , it's black and has several small screws. Once removed, you can see a pvc pipe running from top to bottom. Remove screw from clamp that holds pvc pipe vertical. Remove pvc pipe from top of refrigerator, then remove the top piece that was attached to pvc pipe. You may need to turn 1/4 turn counter clockwise to remove. Once removed, clean these 2 pieces thoroughly to remove any blockages. Install in reverse order and hopefully this fixes your water problem. This pvc pipe runs to a pan that water pools in and evaporates. If the water can't get here, it has to go somewhere.

How do I replace the water line in the door?


Find your route to the water line. Drill a hole in the floor behind the refrigerator and thread the copper tubing into the basement. Go to the basement and find the main water line and pull the copper tubing to it.

Step 2
Attach pipe to refrigerator. Go back up to the kitchen and attach the end of the copper tubing to the water pipe of the refrigerator. You can use a nut and ferrule to connect the tube to the fridge. Make sure to leave a little bit of copper tubing coiled behind the fridge so as to not disconnect the tubing when moving the fridge.

Step 3
Turn off the water. With the fridge all hooked up, go back to the basement and turn off the water. Find the cold water pipe and drill a 1/4-inch hole to accommodate the copper tubing.

Step 4
Attach valve to pipe. You need to attach the water valve to the main pipe. This allows you to control the flow of water to the refrigerator. Make sure you have a gasket to seal between the valve and main water pipe.

Step 5
Connect the copper tubing. With the valve connected to the main water pipe, connect the copper tubing using a clamp. This should be everything you need. Turn on the main water and you should be able to get a glass of water, but it will take an hour or two for the ice cubes to freeze.

Take care..

Samsung RSH1DTMH fridge freezer water filter replacement

The water pipe connection to the filter is a one way fitting which means that the more one pulls to free the pipe, the more the filter connection grips it. There is a circlip on each end of the filter - push the circlip firmly in towards the filter while pulling the pipe free, it should come free easily. Needs 3 hands, two to depress the circlip and one to pull the pipe free. Preferably put a container under the filter (there can be a bit of spillage) while you're replacing it and remember to test the connections once you've fitted the new filter before pushing the fridge back into place.

Samsung's instructions should be clearer.

Water problem

if the lines are plastic then it has to do with your water supply line. is the supply a saddle type valve in your basement and is it connected to a copper pipe or a galvanized steel pipe?
