Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

We have a Frigidaire side by side with the in door ice and water system that utilizes the Pure Source 2 system. Dealer states that the filters whould last forever. After a short period, maybe 4 weeks or so, the water slows to a trickle. I replaced the valve assembly and this did not help I even put an older filter in and the flow was higher than the current unit. Also, check my inlet pressure which is fine. I'm guessing that if the water flow change with a filter change, that they do not last last long. Your comments...thanks for your help.

No water filter on a ref will last forever, the company that built the filter would have filled chapter 7 11 or something

but the filter my or my not be the issue

what is the size of the ice cubes that it is making
are the normal size with no hollow centers
if you use the water in the door does it start out at regular stream and then decrease as long as you are getting water

you have replaced the water valve, i dont think it is bad, keep it as a spare
i wo uld go to the line valve that the ref is connected to the house plumbing and if it is a saddle valve, remove it and check for an obstruction at the saddle valve, and while it is removed bore ou the hole into the pipe it is clamped to to 1/8 of an inch with a drill bit and you should be ok

Leaking pure source 2 ice and water filter


Hi-

Three things

  • Water supply valve may not be completely open.
    Open valve completely.
  • Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough.
    Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
  • Water filter may need changing.
    If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
Hope this help

Thanks for using Fixya!

Where do I find the filter that needs to be changed


Hi

There are two types of water filter fitted to this model they are both located in the top right hand corner of the refrigerator section.

1. The standard water filter looks like an upturned bowl, to change this you need to unplug and switch off the unit, turn off the water supply and unscrew the filter around 1/4 turn anticlockwise.
Replace the filter and tighten the bowl checking that the O rings are in place. You may make a bit of a mess with water dripping out as you remove the filter bowl. These can be quite stubborn if they have not been changed before.

2.Pure source filter is on the face of the unit next to the thermostat, again shut down the unit and turn off the water before removing the filter, there is a small button lower right on the face, when you press this the filter should pop out, again spilling some water.

It is vital that you prime the system properly before using the water or ice this means running at least 2 gallons of water out of the water valve on the front to make sure that all the air is out and that pure water is in the machine.

Frigidaire Pure Source 2 water filter keeps popping out.


My parents frig had the same problem. The steel tabs that hold the filter in place are very small and frail. Heres what I did to solve the problem, at least temporarily. While firmly holding the filter release button, gently bend the tabs together using an extra long pair of curved needle nose pliers.

The water and ice tases and smells bad. New coil and filter.


Replace the water supply line with plastic tubing or copper. Do not use the braided metal or vinyl line as they will cause an odor problem.

Frigidaire pure source plus refridgater the ice and water in the door stoped working.


Hello,

There are a number of things that can cause both the ice and water in the door to stop working. There are two control boards that sit behind the buttons on the dispenser. Either one of them may have failed.

There are several different types of dispensor controls on this refrigerator. You need to download the Factory Repair Manual for your fridge. It will tell you how to remove the dispensor cover and diagnos each board so you know exactly which one to replace. The Repair Manual will be the best source for you at this point.

Thanks
