Let's check there is water coming into the line. Usually the source of water is tapped from a pipe with a needle valve. Over time it get clogged up, so water never actually flow through it to arrive at the refrigerator. I had this experience of replacing a brand new filter without water at all. The ratcheting sound is from the pump sucking air on the empty water line.

How do I "Prime the Water Supply System" refereed to in use and care guide that came with my new Kenmore French Door Bottom Freezer, #253.70413411. Cannot find instructions in the manual only reference to...

Assuming you followed the water line installation directions and you have water available to your new refrigerator/freezer here is the rest of the "priming" info you requested. (basically it tells you how to run a bunch of water through the system by filling cups or glasses to remove any debris and/or air...

Automatic Ice & Water Dispenser
Priming the Water Supply System
1. Begin filling the tank by pressing and holding a drinking glass against the water dispenser paddle. 2. Keep the glass in this position until water comes out of the dispenser. It may take about 1½ minutes. 3. Continue dispensing water for about three minutes to flush the system and plumbing connections of any impurities (stopping to empty the glass as necessary).
Ice Maker Operation & Care After the refrigerator is installed properly and has cooled for several hours, the ice maker can produce ice within 24 hours. The ice maker will fill the ice bin from the rear. You must dispense some ice to force the ice forward in the bin. This will allow the bin to fill completely.
Turning the Fresh Food Ice Maker On and Off Ice production is controlled by the ice maker's On/Off icon on the control panel. Press and hold the "Ice Off" icon for three seconds to turn the ice maker "ON" or "OFF". The ice maker is turned off when the LED above the "Ice Off" icon is illuminated.
Using the Ice Maker after Installation Before making ice for the first time, be sure to prime the water supply system. Air in new plumbing lines can result in two or three empty ice maker cycles. Furthermore, if the system is not flushed, the first ice cubes may be discolored or have an odd flavor.
For proper dispenser operation, recommended water supply pressure should fall between 30 psi and 100 psi. Excessive pressure may cause water filter to malfunction.
NOTE The water dispenser has a built-in device that shuts off the water flow after three minutes of continuous use. To reset this shutoff device, simply release the dispenser paddle.
IMPORTANT On occasion, unusually small ice cubes may be noticed in the bucket or in dispensed ice. This could occur in normal operation of the ice maker. If you start seeing these more frequently, it may be an indication of low water pressure or the water filter needs to be replaced. As the water filter nears the end of its useful life and becomes clogged with particles, less water is delivered to the ice maker during each cycle. Remember, if it's been six months or longer since you last changed your water filter, replace the water filter with a new one. Poor quality household water may require the filter to be changed more frequently.
IMPORTANT Your ice maker is turned on at the factory so it can work as soon as you install your refrigerator. If you cannot connect a water supply, set the ice maker's On/Off icon to Off and turn off the water supply valve; otherwise, the ice maker's fill valve may make a loud chattering noise when it attempts to operate without water.
Hope this helps. Randy

Remove td 4 feul filter

  • Park your Land Rover on level ground and remove the fuel pump fuse from the fuse box underneath the dashboard. Start the engine, let it stall and turn off the ignition switch.

  • 2

    Jack up both rear wheels off the ground with a floor jack, if you need extra space to work under the vehicle. Support the vehicle with two safety stands.

  • 3

    Work on either one of the fuel lines connected to the filter by holding the molded nut at the end of the filter with a backup wrench and unfasten the line retaining nut with a flare wrench. Use a shop rag to absorb any residual fuel in the line. Disconnect the line on the other end of the filter using the same procedure.

  • 4

    Unfasten the bolt on the filter mounting bracket with a ratchet, short ratchet extension and socket. Note in which direction the arrow on the filter's body points to and remove the fuel filter from the vehicle.

  • 5

    Remove the O-rings from the fittings of the two disconnected lines. Coat two new O-rings with clean engine oil and install one on each of the line fittings.

Installing the New Fuel Filter
  • 1

    Position the new fuel filter into the mounting bracket with the arrow pointing in the same direction as the arrow on the old filter was pointing and tighten the bracket bolt with the ratchet and socket.

  • 2

    Connect the fuel lines to the filter fittings by hand first to avoid stripping the fitting threads. Hold the filter molded nut with the backup wrench and tighten the line retaining nut with the flare wrench.

  • 3

    Lower your Land Rover with the floor jack, if you had to raise it.

  • 4

    Replace the fuel pump fuse in the fuse box and turn the ignition switch on to pressurize the fuel system.

How do i change a water pump on a 2.2ltr engine

Damage to the cylinder heads or other parts of the engine will result if the temperature rises too high. breakage image by Rina from

If the water pump in your Pontiac Sunfire is making noise or has started leaking, it's time to replace it. The water pump is responsible for moving water and coolant through the engine, to the radiator and back to the block. The coolant absorbs the heat from the engine, then cools down in the radiator before returning to the engine. If the water pump is not working, the engine will begin to heat up until the it overheats; damage to the cylinder heads or other parts of the engine will result if the temperature rises too high.

  • Remove the negative battery cable from the battery with a wrench and set it aside. Isolate the cable from the battery so it can not accidentally make contact with the terminals.
  • Position a drain pan under the radiator drain on the bottom of the radiator. Open the valve with a wrench and allow the coolant to drain from the system. When the coolant stops draining from the valve, close the valve securely.
  • Remove the serpentine belt from the car by placing a ratchet and socket on the tensioner and turning it counterclockwise. Slide the belt off the pulleys and move the tensioner back to the free arm position.
  • Remove the alternator from the mounting bracket by removing the mounting bolts with a socket and ratchet. Lay the alternator off to one side where it will be out of the way.
  • Remove the three mounting bolts that hold the pulley on the water pump. Use a socket and ratchet to turn the bolts counterclockwise, then slide the bolts and pulley off the water pump flange.
  • Remove the four water pump mounting bolts with a socket and ratchet, then remove the pump from the engine block. Scrape off any remaining gasket material from the block with a gasket scraper
  • Position the new water pump with a new gasket into the hole in the engine block and install the four mounting bolts. Tighten the bolts with a socket and ratchet, then torque them to 22 foot-pounds with a torque wrench.
  • Slide the water pump pulley on to the front of the water pump and install the three mounting bolts. Torque the bolts to 18 foot-pounds with a torque wrench.
  • Reinstall the alternator into the mounting bracket and secure it by installing the two mounting bolts. Tighten the bolts with a socket and ratchet. Reinstall the serpentine belt over the accessory pulleys.
  • Fill the radiator with new coolant at a mix ratio of 50 percent water to 50 percent coolant.

  • Connect the negative battery cable to the battery and tighten the retaining bolt with a wrench. Start the car and allow it to run while filling the radiator with coolant. It will continue to take coolant until the system is full.
  • Replace the radiator cap and let the car run until it reaches normal operating temperature. Visually verify that there are no leaks from the pump and watch the temperature to ensure the car does not over heat and runs within the normal range

    Water dispenser on the door does not dispense water, I changed the water filter thinking it that was the problem and the new filter you heard it fill up with water but still the water will not come out

    there could be a frozen water in the line above the dispenser, in order to verify this disconnect the line on the bottom of the door possibliy inside the kick panel.once the line is disconnected push the water dispenser button if the water comes out of the hose. then your line in the door is frozen.this can be cleard by using a hair dryer and blowning air in the bootom of the line then in the top.once the line is clear reconnect it.If now water comes from the line after it has been disconnected the you have a bad fill vle but if you heard water filling the filter idoubt this to be the case. good luck i hope this helps,i would like to knwo how things worked out for you

    Water left in fabric dispenser after load


    The dispensers work by the siphon principle. You load the softener and at the proper time, the machine diverts water to the softener cup raising the level. In the softener cup, there is a tube loosely covered with a cap. When the level in the softener cup is raised high enough, a siphon effect is started and the softener is pulled from the cup into the washer. This will continue until the water quits flowing and air gets under tha cap, breaking the siphon. The amount of water remaining in the cup is dependent on the level of the cap, and the amount of residual water remaining in the dispenser fill tube once the siphon effect is broken. You can see this effect for yourself: take a measuring cup and slowly pour water into the softener cup, raising the level above the max line. When the level gets high enough, the contents of the cup will dispense. You can remove the cover cap that is a part of the dispenser and clean it; it will help. Removing the entire tray and cleaning all of the tubes and the cap assembly will also help. The only other thing that can be done is to change the dispensing supply valve, as it sounds like there may be some leak by after the fabric softener is dispensed. Having residual water isn't really hurting anything. It's only water, and the machine has dispensed the softener! Try the cleaning part first as this usually corrects the issue, and then the repair technician if it still bothers you. For as much as the extnded warranty costs, you should be completely satisfied with your machine.
