Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Frigidaire Refrigerator - Model # FRS26ZSG

Water is spraying out from the top of the water filter housing whenever water is drawn from the front dispenser OR whenever water passes through the filter housing on its way to the ice machine. The filter inside is only a couple of months old and when the filter is removed the problem still exists.

The housing is probably cracked due to it freezing.

Smeg dose not takein water


Is the dispenser door opening.....f not the the dispenser is faulty
It the dispenser is opening but the product dose remain plugged in the cavity, the top wash arm may not be turning.
Clean out all of the particles blocking the top spray arm holes and spin the arm to ensure ti turns freely.
Also check that there aren't any items placed it the top rack that could stop the arm from rotating freely.
Product not coming out of the dispenser id usually always due to the top spray arm . if it is blocked with particles you may not have been cleaning the filter in the sump properly and 'bits' of food ate passing th filter, Make sure the filter in the sump is well firmly in place.
The last important point is to always run the machine at 60 degrees or more You need temperature to do the job properly.

No dispensing water...GE refrigerator


There may be an interlock switch on the housing where the filter or dummy stopper is inserted. If this interlock is not satisfied, then the water dispenser won't turn on. This would prevent water from spraying all over the inside of the refrigerator if the filter is not seated properly. Check to make sure the filter or plug is inserted properly.

Water filter gets water but does not feed ice maker or water outlet.


Good Morning Joseph,

I see that you are having trouble with water dispensing and ice being produced on your Frigidaire refrigerator, even after replacing water filter, model# ULTRAWF, twice. I would suggest to reset your refrigerator, by either unplugging it, or shutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 2-3 minutes. Once power is restored try to get water out of the dispenser. If you are still having trouble with the water dispenser, remove the water filter and replace it, making sure you hear two clicks and the filter is flush with the filter housing. If these suggestions do not work, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance.

-Best Regards-

Water only dispenses if I turn the filter/by pass knob on a daily basis - it works great then the next day I have to turn the filter all the way from the uninstall position to fully installed


Sounds like the temperature in the refrigerator is too cold and is possibly freezing the water inside the filter.

Water leaking from water filter/housing


Hi,
How old is the filter and are you using the correct filter? After markets don't seal well, and an old filter can leak.
You can remove the filter and use the dispenser to determine if just the filter is the issue, the housing has a by-pass system and works without a filter in it, just would filter water without a filter.
Give that a try, let me know if you need more help.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/gere_bf68e6055dd61249

My Amana french door/bottom freezer is leaking water. Did the procedure with hot water the drain in back of the freezer, although it seemed clear of ice. That didn't help. The leaking stops when I...


Two possibilities:
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.

Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.

Bought a new Maytag side by side. Will not put out water. Tried the 5 sec on and 5sec off to flush the air out, still didn't work. What next?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
First off you need to make sure the freezer door is CLOSED and water filter is properly installed in the filter housing. Without a model number I can not tell you the exact location of the filter. There is a water lock out function of the water filter housing that will prevent proper water flow until the filter is installed correctly or removed completely. Also... there is a water tank / reservoir that has to be filled completely with water before you will see any water at the spigot. Please pass your model number so I can better assist you or call the Maytag Sercive Center so they can walk you through the initial set up procedure of your refrigerator. (They will also need your model number) Go to http://www.maytag.com and register your appliance before making the call.
1 (800) 344-1274 U.S.
1 (800) 688-2002 Canada

Before making the call check out this information about troubleshooting:
http://maytag.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/110/kw/Water/session/L3RpbWUvMTI5ODY4MTEyNi9zaWQvam9CYWV5bms%3D

- After connecting the refrigerator to water source or replacing the water filter, flush the water system. Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue to press and release the dispenser bar (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) until a total of 3 gal. (12 L) has been dispensed. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare the water filter for use. Additional flushing may be required in some households. As air is cleared from the system water may spurt out of the dispenser.
- Make sure the dispenser is not locked. Some models have a lock feature that deactivates the dispenser levers and control buttons. The lock button is on the dispenser front cover. This feature controls unintentional dispensing during cleaning. Press the Unlock or Locked button to reactivate the dispenser levers and allow dispenser function. You may need to hold the button for 2 to 3 seconds.
- If there has been a recent power outage or the power supply has been off for more than one hour, the power outage indicator (on some models) will disable the dispenser function. The dispenser display will read "PF" to indicate power failure. To use the dispenser, press and hold the "Reset" button for 3 seconds until you hear the beeps.

-A clogged or incorrectly installed water filter will reduce the water flow to the water dispenser. Check for a problem with the filter by removing the filter and operating the dispenser. If water begins to flow, then the filter is either clogged or incorrectly installed. A clogged filter will need to be replaced.

If the filter is clogged and you are not able to immediately replace it, leave the filter out 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. However, in order to have filtered water, you will need to install a new filter.
All Genuine Maytag Water Filters retain beneficial fluoride and are NSF Certified for drastically reducing chlorine taste and odor, particulates, lead, mercury and cysts.

To ensure glass after glass of clean, refreshing ice and water, change your filter yearly or whenever the system light indicates.

The information above should get your water working. If not please listen for a solenoid buzz as you actuate the water in door function. No buzz either the dispenser is locked off or.... you have a valid warranty claim.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly
