Have you tried adjusting the freezer temperature to a higher level? This worked for my Kenmore. It will take a couple of days to quit leaking.

My 2004 Kenmore leaks water at the water filter housing. I put a new filter in but when I wish to get water it overflows at thde top.


Fist issue, plumbers putty should not be used on any water connection for potable (drinking) water, use Teflon tale if you need to. If the leak is at the housing most likely the housing is bad, replace it.

Kenmore refrigerator water filter bypass


That is a tough one. You can remove the water hoses from the housing but it won't be easy. Unless the housing itself is broken I don't think I would recommend bypassing it. Now if you really do want to go this route, here's how I would do it.
1) Turn off the supply
2) Carefully remove both lines from housing
3) Using the proper fittings, splice enough line so that you can position the new inline filter at the rear of the unit.
4) Attach the proper quick connect fittings to the new lines.
5) Install the new inline filter .(You may wish to secure the new assembly to the back of the unit)
6) Turn supply back on and check for leaks
As far as which filter, there are many to choose from. I would just get an inexpensive, inline filter made for ice makers. just be sure you get the correct quick connect ends for your new installation.
You can also purchase a complete kit which comes with mounting hardware, a filter and everything you need. This won't be inline though. It will be a separate housing which you will just mount remotely.
Good Luck!

Water is leaking out of filter housing does this mean its time to change the filter


no it's probably the o-ring seal at the housing. i would try taking it out inspecting the seal and replace if needed. if not i would put it back on and make sure the housing is on tight and it should seal off.

Refrigerator gushing water through ice maker filter


Filters themselves don't usually leak. Check full insertion of filter, cracked filter housing or cracked supply line.

Leak at filter


Nope. You can't bypass the tube style filter... it's the housing that cracked. That has to be removed and replaced. Sorry to give ya bad news, Mariner.

Water leaking at filter


If this is a Pure source 2 filter in the upper right hand side of fridge, Purchase an Electrolux filter bypass, P/N 241944302. This is a empty cartridge that lets water flow without water drip when filter is clogged. Fridgidaire/Electrolux made no bypass in these filters, so when clogged they leak. Plus they NEVER last more than about 30/60 days. If you use the bypass, you will need a separate filter elsewhere such as in water line under sink or behind fridge. Call me at 816-560-8545 if you need more info.
