Water in dump box

I removed the filter using the supplied tool and now it seems that it is stripped. I cannot tighten it back in place and it does not come out easily. I examined the o-ring and it seems ok. There is a quantity of water released into the dump box with each usage. Prior to this the entire brew group had stopped working but I forced water through the inlet and now it at least brews.

    I succumbed to my failure at fixing the problem and found a wonderful site for ordering replacement parts. I have ordered a new filter, o-ring, lubricant, and a brew group (all new parts) for around $100 with shipping. When I contacted a repair location they wanted $85 just to examine the coffee maker. The items haven't arrived yet, but I will post again upon receipt.

You have more than one problem.
You need to order a new filter since, if it is stripped, you cannot use it. The water in the dump box is caused either by that filter not being clean and not allowing the water to pass, thus dumping it into your dump box(the usual case), or a worn or failed O ring.
The other problem, the brew group not working, could be caused by any number of issues and would need more information. You may simply have not put it back on properly or got the timing sequence off.

How do I change the water filter on a Frigidaire FRS6R5EMB


If it's the model I'm thinking of, it has a screw in filter cup up in the rear, upper right corner of the fresh foods section. Just twist that weird shaped cup on the bottom counter-clockwise and then pull down on it. It should come out with the filter in it. Then, just take out the filter, put a new one in, and then screw the filter cup back into place.

From a manual of a similar model to yours:

To change filter:
It is not necessary to turn the water supply off to change the filter.
1. Open freezer door and leave open until filter change is
complete.
2. Turn OFF side mounted ice maker by raising wire signal
arm to the UP position. Turn OFF rear mounted ice maker
by pressing ON/OFF power switch to the "O" position.
3. Hold filter cup firmly, and unscrew towards left (Some water
could leak out as you remove cup. This is normaL). Filter
cartridge should come down with cup. If cartridge remains in
housing, puli down gentl_; while twisting filter back and forth.
4. Rinse out cup under running water.
5. The large o-ring that seals the filter system fits in the o-ring
groove inside the cup. Should the o-ring fail out during filter
cartridge replacement, simply place it back in the groove
prior to screwing the cup back in place. If the o-ring becomes
damaged, you wiIIneed to order one from the Flectmtux
Solutions Hottine.
6. Discard old filter cartridge.
7. Remove new filter cartridge from packaging. Place in cup. The
end with the small o-ring should be up, out of the cup.
8. Screw cup, with filter, back onto housing. Do Not Use Wrench
To Reinstall Cup= Filter cartridge will self-align as cup is
tightened. Be sure cup is completely tightened with
PureSource TM logo facing outward. Do Not Tighten Past Stop.
9. Turn ON side mounted ice maker by lowering wire signal
arm to the DOWN position. Turn ON rear mounted ice
maker by pressing ON/OFF power switch to the 'T' position.
10. Check for Ieaks. Open refrigerator door. Wipe any water droplets
from the filter cup. Fi[Ia glass with water. If there is a leak,
unscrew filter cup, and reinsert the filter cartridge. Check
placement of large O-ring. Reinstall filter cup, making certain it is
tightened complete!_,_
11= To prime filter system and purge air from water line,
continue flushing the system for approximately 3 minutes
to assure that the purest water possible is stored in the
water tank. There win be noticeab[e spurts and sputters
as the system pushes air out through the system and
out the dispenser nozzle,This is normal.

Where is the water filter frs24wscb


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know where the water filter is located on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS24WSCB. The water filter is located in the top back right-hand corner. To change filter follow the instructions below:

It is not necessary to turn the water supply off to change the filter.

1. Set ice maker lever (wire signal arm) to the OFF (up) position.
2. Hold filter cup firmly, and unscrew counter clockwise. (Some water could leak out as you remove cup. This is normal.) Filter cartridge should come down with cup. If cartridge remains in housing, pull down gently, while twisting filter back and forth.
3. Empty cup of any substance.
4. The large o-ring that seals the filter system sets in the o-ring groove down inside the cup. Should the o-ring fall out during filter cartridge replacement, simply place it back in the groove prior to screwing the cup back in place. If the o-ring becomes damaged, you will need to order a new one from the Consumer Assistance Center.
5. Discard old filter cartridge.
6. Remove new filter cartridge from packaging, and install.
7. Place filter cartridge in cup. The end with the small o-ring should be up, out of the cup.
8. Screw cup, with filter, back onto housing. Do Not Use Wrench To Reinstall Cup. Filter cartridge will self-align as cup is tightened. Be sure cup is completely tightened with PureSource Plus Logo facing outward. Do Not Tighten Past Stop.
9. Set ice maker level on the ON (down) position.
10. Check for leaks. Open refrigerator door. Wipe any water drops from the filter cup. Run a glass of water. If there is a leak, unscrew filter cup, and reinsert the filter cartridge. Check placement of large O-ring. Reinstall filter cup, making certain it is tightened completely.
11. To condition filter system and purge air from water line, run several glasses of water through water dispenser. This will also assure that the purest water possible is stored in water tank.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Where to find oil filter


It probably is located under a plastic cap with a hex nut on it. This cap is located on the engine near the radiator. The filter has no metal casing. Your engine is the metal casing. You need to purchase a special socket at a auto parts store to remove the cap. Make note of how the filter position is so that you place the new filter back in properly and not upside down. Place a new o ring on the plastic cap with a small amount of oil. Screw the cap back on by hand as far as you can to prevent the plastic threads from stripping. Then use the socket with ratchet to tighten. Do not over tighten the cap.

Replace cabin filter f150 lariat 2006


This is one of those topics that I have seen both ways.

1. The 2004 was the only MY to include an airfilter.
2. The late build 2004 to 2008 could have a dealer installed cabin air filter kit installed.

So don't be shocked if you go fishing for it, and it is not there. On to the directions :

Open the passenger-side glove compartment box. Remove all of the items currently stored in the glove box

Notice two screws on the inside ceiling of the glove box securing the glove box to the dashboard. Use a flat-head screwdriver to remove these screws. The glove box will now be loose. Wiggle the box off the dashboard and allow it to hang.


Locate the rectangular plastic housing; this is where the cabin air filter is stored. Remove the housing cover by pulling it out of place. Remove the dirty cabin air filter by sliding it out of the clips securing it in place. Discard the dirty filter.


Slide the replacement cabin air filter into the retainer clips. Push the filter housing cover back into place until you hear it lock. Place the glove compartment back into place. Replace the two screws that secure the glove box in place and tighten with the screwdriver. Place the items back into the glove box and close the box.

I have a Culligan Super-S filter and I think the meda needs to be changed. I'm getting a lot of red water stains. Can I repack this myself? If so, can I use another manufacturers media?


Yes you should be able to replace this yourself and yes you should be able to use filters from other manufactures. Just check rating on the filter for listing of applications. To change the filter there should be a bypass valve on water line to filter. You normally push a button that routes water around the filter. There should be a spanner wrench to grasp casing of filter housing to loosen it.There also should be a small button on top of the filter housing to push down to relieve pressure to make it easier to remove filter housing.
I would make sure that you can get the right filter before doing anything. If you have what you need than bypass or shut water supply off,remove filter housing ,install new filter.Clean o-ring seals and put light coating of petrolem jelly on o-rings. Reassemble and tighten snugly.Turn water back on and open bypass,check for leaks and tighten a little more if needed. Thank you.

I need instructions for replacing the filter on the heavy duty Sediment water filter.


Turn the water off on inlet and outlet, press and hold RED pressure relief button on top of housing.
Use filter wrench supplied and unscrew to the left. Clean housing out and replace filter. Only tighten housing by hand. It helps to press the RED relief button again after you turn the water back on to bleed off any air in filter housing before you turn the outlet back on.

Have an LG american type fridge freezer and need to change the water filter for the first time and don't know how to


Good day,
Grasp the filter firmly and turn it counter-clockwise until it releases.
Some water will spill so hold a small bowl under it.
Install the new one in reverse order. Pushed up turn clockwise until it seats.
It will take a while to purge the air out of the system, so be patient.

NEWBIE: How difficult is it to change the oil and oil filter?


ok, this should be pretty basic but if you have any doubts buy a repair manual for your car from auto zone or checker or wherever you shop.
first off buy the new filter and the oil, that filter should look very similar to the one that is on your car, although keep in mind that the color and sometimes even shape can be a little different, but you have a basic idea of what to look for.
the oil filter will be on the motor itself, as well as the drain plug, usually both are easier to access from underneath the car.  remove the oil filter counter-clockwise, some oil will leak out at this point and may be hot, so be careful, this may require a tool depending on how tight it is, the tool is usually relatively cheap.  NEVER use an oil filter tool to tighten your filter, it is only for removal and may damage the filter adapter, when you put the new filter on tighten it as much as you can with just your hands, this should be plenty tight. you will also need a drain pan, preferrably sealable so you can take it with you when it is full to be dumped (usually checker/auto zone will have an oil dump). 
next loosen and take out the drain plug, this will be on the bottom of the oil pan, which is the bottom part of the motor itself.  when the oil stops (or reduces to a very fine flow being almost all gone), put the drain plug back in and tighten it down.  add 3 or 4  quarts of oil, start the car and let it run for 15 to 20 seconds, this will fill up the oil filter, then check the oil and add as needed.
hope this helps.

Clean the central unit whenever the coffee bean container is filled, or at least once a week. If the water hose seems dirty it is probably due to hard water and needs to be descaled.
Descaling is done with a special citric acid you can buy in any grocery store or dealer of such machines. follow the directions and run clean water through afterwards.

To clean the filter:
Switch off the machine and open service door
.
Remove grounds coffee container .
Remove central unit, by holding the handle and shortly pressing the PRESS key. Wash the central unit with hot water; do not use any solvent.
Make sure there are no coffee residues on the two steel filters: the upper filter can be removed by unloosening and turning the plastic pin anticlockwise using the tool supplied with your device. Dry thoroughly each central unit component, fit the filter again and tighten it properly with the screw .
Remove coffee rest drawer and clean it, using a non-abrasive solvent. Clean the service area thoroughly and fit the coffee rest drawer again. By holding the central unit by its handle, slide it back into its original position, making sure it is correctly engaged. Then close the door. Fit the coffee grounds container again.

good luck, stephen
