If you have water issues, odds are there must be a filter in the line somewhere in the unit. They are notorious for developing water leaks. Sometimes it's nothing more than a slightly loose jam nut, other time you wind up replacing the filter, (which is probably a good idea anyway,),and one or both of the fitting assemblies on the ends of the filter casing.
Yes a clogged filter could indeed make the water dispenser not work...it too would affect the icemaker as well, is ice being made?? if yes icemaker is working yet no water being dispensed what ya need to check for is a cracked or broken line and instead of water is leaking out of it somewhere.
Water filter is located in the upper right hand corner of the fresh food side.
Follow these steps:
These eight inch long filters are housed in their own compartment.
The base of the compartment can be released by pushing in on the release
clip found at the end of the housing unit. Allow the base of the
housing compartment to hang down while you remove and replace your
Twist the spent filter to the left (counter-clockwise) and gently
pull on it to remove it. There is an automatic water shut off to keep
leaks and spills to a minimum.
Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove the plastic wrap,
and peel off the aluminum topping. Insert the new filter into the
housing unit. Twist the filter to the right (clockwise) until it clicks
into place. Replace the base of the filter housing by cliping it back in
Condition the filter by dispensing several glasses of water through
your refrigerator. This ensures that all fine carbon particles have been
Check the filter and the inside of the refrigerator for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and install the filter again.
I would shut water off and relieve pressure. Remove filter houseing and inspect rubber gasket on bath sides, clean it off and clean inside of cap where gasket sets and on top of housing. Make sure there are no rough spot on either surface. If there are you can smooth them out by using fine grit sandpaper,no coarser then 120 grit. Wipe all surfaces clean and apply 5-6 wraps of teflon tape on threads on filter housing. Before you put gasket back in place you can put a light coating of petroleum jelly,vaseiline or similar,on both sides of gasket. wipe off excess. Reinstall filter and housing. tighten securely. Turn water back on and check for leaks. If it still leaks you can tighten a little more. If it still leaks I would replace gasket. Hope this helps.Thanks
My unit is 3 1.2 tears old. It started to delay the flowing of hot water. Today I held the lever down until hot water came out but I noticed water leaking from inside the unit. I figured that the tank failed, and since it was over 3 years old I decided to open it up. What I found was that there is a plastic tube at the top of the unit that was very discolored and brittle which developed a crack. when I touched it it completely severed. I called the Insinkerator hotline at 1800-558-5700 and they told me that opening the unit voids the warranty. I said that it appears to be out of warranty and I needed just the plastic tube for repair. The per on on the phone said that as a one time courtesy that a new unit would be shipped to me free of charge and that I could install it myself or they will have a tech do it. I opted to do it myself. Hope this helps
Brand new ours did not have this problem. It does now and I think the reason is the seam in the chrome over the handle is cracked and pressure leaks out causing the noise. It's now bad enough that it leaks also. Glue fixed both problems temporarly but its doing it again so I'm looking for a replacement. That's how I came across this post.
If it is brand new and leaking, it sounds like your pool filter has a connection problem. Check your connections to make sure that they are tight and sound and that you do not have any hairline cracks.
