There is water under deli drawer in my samsung refrigerator model rfg298hd. Can you tell me how to fix this? Thank you.

Condensation is the likely source of the water (unless a Brita pitcher is leaking).

Most often it is because the door(s) are not closing tight or not sealing properly. A good cleaning of the gasket will help with the latter.

Brita Memo Replacement Unit failed then order a FREE replacement !

Create an account at Brita then go here you will receive you new Brita Memo Replacement Unit within 10 days.

Usually the battery in this unit will last about four years however if you register your details with a valid email all BRITA products will come with a 2 year manufacture guarantee... but should any part of it break, we will send you a replacement part absolutely FREE

Don't bother trying to replace the CR1616 battery yourself it is a sealed unit and once the seal is broken you can replace the battery but it will fail very soon with steam ingress even if you superglue it.!!

How do you change the battery in a brita filter pitcher timer

According to Brita[] the battery is supposed to last five years (mine didn't) and is not replaceable. It could and should be replaceable but it's just another example of planned obsolescence to make people spend more money.

When my battery died I decided to see if I could change the battery and keep using the electronic indicator without replacing the Brita. I searched online and didn't find any resources on replacing the battery so I went into MacGyver mode and figured it out myself.

To do this you'll need a flatheat screwdriver, pliers and a CR1616 button cell battery.

Click on the thumbnails to get larger pictures for more detail. I hope that you are able to follow along and replace your battery as I did.

1. The first step is popping the electronic indicator out of the pitcher lid. I used a flathead screwdriver and wedged it between the corner of the timer and the lid until I worked the timer module out. As you can see there is a little damage done to the corners of the lid and indicator module.

2. On the long side of the indicator housing's seal (on the bottom) is a plastic lip. Identify the lip, this is what it looks like. There are two lips, one on each side of the indicator housing.

3. Use your screwdriver to fold one of the plastic lips up.

4. The bottom of the indicator housing is a clear plastic seal. You need to remove the seal from the bottom of the indicator housing. Use pliers to pull this plastic seal off using the lip which you folded up. This is the hardest part because the seal is strongly glued to the housing. Keep working the seal until you've removed it. The seal will most likely be destroyed in the process. Here is what mine looked like when I started the process.

5. When you've got the plastic seal off you can remove the battery. There is a metal fastener that holds the battery in. Remove the fastener to get the old battery out.

6. Insert new battery and replace battery fastener.

7. When I put the new battery in the timer module didn't come right on. Not sure what to do at this point I touched the exposed copper contact with the screwdriver head and that seemed to complete some kind of circuit which caused the timer to come back on.

8. Reset the timer (if necessary) by holding down the start button in the normal fashion.

9. Re-seat the timer module into the Brita pitcher lid. I did not put the timer all the way back into the lid so that I could more easily remove it in the future. The timer module is no longer water proof since you removed the seal so if you ever want to wash the pitcher lid you'll have to remove the timer again. You also have to remove the timer module to replace the battery in the future.

Brita filter

When you initially soak the bag in water make sure to squeeze it lightly and shake to release all the air bubbles. Also, you should pour out the first couple pitchers of water after using a new filter as it takes time to break in. This way all of the gray or black filter water will be gone by the time you wish to drink. For more water filter and pitchers go to

Water is not cold

NO SOLUTION, THERE'S JUST NO EXTRA TUBING. Domestic refers with water dispensing feature will have a coil of plastic water tubing tucked away in the refer behind a drawer or at the bottom; it hold s cedent amount of cold water when you dispense it. However, You won't find this additional tubing in a Samsung refer. This fridge is made 'abroad' by folks don't have the same standards as the U.S. The icemaker, for instance, is found to be accepatable by their standards when it makes 72 cubes per day; HAH! We use more than that for dinner. We buy bagged ice and use a Brita pitcher. I will switch back to Whirlpool or Maytag when this thing craps out.

When I pour water into Brita pitcher I always get a lot of sediment or whatever it is from the replacement filters. I tried pouring different ways but not much of a difference.

From the description of this model's replacement filters, they appear to be carbon filters. What you are seeing is most likely bits of carbon granules from the filter media (which doesn't say much for the construction quality of these filters). I would suggest getting an inexpensive countertop or under-counter filtration system instead of using Brita pitcher filters. These systems usually come with both carbon and sediment filters and if you get a non-proprietary one (i.e. not a system off the shelf at Lowe's), the filter elements are a lot cheaper to replace.

Too much carbon in water

Sounds like a bad batch of filters. Stop using them and return them to Brita for analysis and replacement

Brita filter needs replacement, but is stuck. any advice?

Hold filter cartridge in one hand and slowly turn on water. The water pressure will push the cartridge out of the housing.
