Water and ice taste bad

How long has it been since you replaced the filter in the waterline, or in the refrigerator section waterline? This filter is to be replaced usually every six months. This filter is usually a canister about the size of a car oil filter and is usually located in the upper right side of the fridge. May be hidden by a plastic shield over the light. Replacing this filter should eliminate your problem. Remember to read the instructions that come with the new filter as to filling it with water before installing or not and the purge time or amount before using it for drinking, to flush any particulate out of the new filter. Usually 60 seconds of running water from door in to a glass and dumping that water...or run water into a glass til it dispenses clear water. Remember to turn off the water to the fridge and have a towel handy when replacing the filter. Some refrigerators have a function where by when you unscrew the old filter it automatically shuts off the water, but I would not trust that to actually work...Ha!

I have a Samsung rsh1dbbp fridge/freezer, the change filter light has come up, but the instructions are not clear I do not know where to install the new filter, could someone help me?

The filter is located behind the fridge. This is a self contained filter cartridge that is replaced as a unit. Online they sell for about £4. Pull the fridge out completely and you will probably see the filter cartridge clipped to the wall. The filter is about 10 inches long and about 2 inch diameter. Note the flow direction marked on the new cartridge, and remember to turn off the water supply before disconnecting to inlet and outlet pipes from the filter . Hope this helps

Where is the water filter located?

The filter is in the refrigerator section in the space behind the vegetable bin. Thus pull the bin out to change your filter. Then remove the cap by rotating it counter-clockwise. Remove the old filter (turn 90 degrees counter-clockwise and then pull out) and then take the protective cap off your new filter. Slide the new filter into the housing and then rotate clockwise 90 degrees. The alignment marks should indicate the filter is locked into place. Then replace the cap. Remember to run water through the dispenser for several minutes to clear the lines.

I hope this helps.

(I don't have a manual for the RS2630WW; however, the Samsung RS2630SW should have the filter in the same place.)

I replaced the filter after 6 months, worked fine no problems. I replaced filter after another 6 months and now have no water no ice?????? All was working perfectly until I replaced the filter. I now...

My suggestion , would be to reinstall your old filter or use the bypass piece which came with the refrig . You only need to replace the filter when the water flow starts to slow down or the ice cubes get smaller . Not when the red light comes on telling you to . Manufacturers make a lot of money , due to these red lights .

Good news and bad news. Here is a link for the manual:

However, it is poor quality, and really doesn't give much hint where the filter is, or even if it has one. There is no mention of a filter anywhere. Sorry.

You said, Water is dripping from filter housing, only leaks when filter in!You have two choices.
1. You can have service repair or replace the filter seal in the filter seat.
2. Or you can operate it with out a filter with no ill effect! that's okay to operate it without!

Water wont dispense

Yes, if the filter gets clogged up to a point that it won't allow water to flow, it won't dispense. Replace the filter. Remember that the all the junk that the filter captures is better left in the filter than in your bloodstream... Hope that helps !
