Fridg on but fridg not cold

It probably has a bad main control board , locate behind the refrig , behind an 8x10" panel . I would remove the board ( with refrig unplugged ) , and look for a " bullseye " . Resolder if possible , if not , replace the control board . From your symptom , sounds like the compressor is not comming on , so the board should fix this .

Instructions for installation of amana water inlet valve 12544001

I know that seems like the incorrect part but it replaces the water valve that had 2 outlet hoses connected to it. To replace that;
Turn off house water supply to old valve and disconnect tubing
remove old valve and unplug the 2 wire connections and the 2 outlet hoses
The two outlet hoses were what was considered a Y hose..cut off semi clear plastic tubing a inch back where the 2 semi clear plastic tubes merge and become only 1
pull one of the plastic nuts off of the Y tube
slip it onto the end of the newly cut single tube
slip single tube into outlet threaded outlet of new valve and tighten that plastic nut
connect the 2 wire plugs onto new valve
remount to back of refrig
attatch house water supply to metal fitting that has/had protective rubber cap over it (oh of course remove procetive rubber cap and discard it)
turn water supply back on
it may up to 4 hrs for water to flow to icemaker so best to test by dispensing water through freezer door

Good luck,any questions or problems please reply and i'll help you,

What is the model number for the water filter for the KitchenAid #KSRG25FKSS16 refrigeator and where is it found in the refrigerator? thank you.

Hello pssutherland,

I understand that you need to locate the water filter on your KitchenAid fridge. The water filter is located at the bottom of the fridge in the grill. There is a eject button that you will need to press next to the water filter in order to get it to release.
1. Press the eject button
2. pull the filter straight out
3. Remove the cap by turning it clockwise (you will need to install this on the new one)
4. Reinstall the cap on the new filter
5. Push the filter in until the eject button pops back out.
6. Purge the system run three full glass of water thru the water dispencer and throw away.
7. You are done

Thank you for choosing

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.

Approx. every 6 mo. I get water on the floor beneith the freezer side door. It seems to require removing the freezer contents and the back panel of the freezer compartment, exposing ice plugged drain. How...

Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Use an ALUMINUM or COPPER solid wire , 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Wrap the other end about 1 1/2 to 2 turns , around the black rod (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

Did the icemaker and water dispensor quit at the same time ? Your model has the 2 lines coming from the top ( filter ) behind the refrig . One line to the wall water line to filter and the other coming down to the water valve . Do you have the filter bypass piece that came with the refrig ? Use it to test . Remove the back panel . If both stopped at the same time , check the connector that the wires connect to . With 2 connectors on each solenoid , those 3 or 4 wires go to a seperate plug in . Check this plug in . If wireing seems ok , remove the larger tubing from the valve by pushing in on the white ring and pulling the tubing out at the same time . Press the water dispensor , and see if water comes out of the valve . If it does , (you said you disconnected the tubing below the freezer door and no water came out while activating the water dispensor ) then the tank at rhe bottom of the refrig section behind the crispers , is frozen . To thaw , use a hair dryer with the light bulbs in the refrig section , unscrewed slightly . This is only for the water dispensor . For the icemaker , disconnect the smaller tubing , while someone else , turns the icemaker on and off several times to see if the valve momentarily opens each time the icemaker is turned on and off . I think the water valve wiring plug , has something to do with this because I have never found a G E where both quit at the same time without it being that plug ( 2 times ).

Ed25rfxfw01 whirlpool fridge water dispenser ...I have a slow drip from the dispenser hose. I assume I need a new water inlet valve. How do I access the inlet valve for replacing?

It should be on the right hand side in the back take off the compressor cover on the back should be 8 or so 1/4 screws nutdriver type and then two more hold on the water valve. If you have a RO system hooked up to refrig you may need to change the filters on the ro or just change the filter on the refrig. those two will also cause the water to drip thru the valve allowing it to drip on the front

Water leak at filter

I had this with a Kitchenaid Superba and wanted to get rid of the filter holder assembly entirely as I have an undersink unit which serves the fridge. I removed the plastic line (nut) at the back of the fridge (which led to the filter holder at the front) where the flexible copper tubing inserted (this was a 3/8' compression fitting-plastic) and also the returning line (1/4" copper compression nut on a plastic line) at the manifold (again in the back of the fridge) where it gets split between the water line and the ice line. I then just connected the 1/4" flexible copper directly to the manifold (1/4" nut, compression sleeve, male-male connector) using a pre-made 1/4" flexible compression line. Sounds complicated but after seeing how the water routes it was fairly quick work.
