I have a Kenetico reverse osmosis water system suppling my Kitchenaid Superba side-by-side refrigerator. I believe the water filter in the refrigerator is hindering the water pressure from adequately providing the volume of water necessary to the ice maker to function properly. Is there a replacement "slug" with no filtering available to replace the existing filter # 4396508 as the reverse osmosis is more than adequate for this.

I believe that this is an automatic warning to get you to replace the inline water filter located in the back of the refrigerator side up near the top. This sells water filters at 30+ dollars a pop. There is a procedure in your manual to replace the filter, but you could just reset the warning by holding the "filter reset button" for 3 seconds. that button is on the front door of the machine.
it's gonna be either the water valve or the gear shaft in the ice maker. replacement ice maker $130.00 water valve $40.00. gear only comes in with module $90.00. low water pressure from plugged water filter can cause this or if a reverse osmosis system is hooked to it. 40 pounds or more is reccomened for the valve to work properly
The filter has a T handle on the front of it twist it to the left a quarter turn and pull it out.save the handle on the front end of the old filter it slides off and goes back on the new one.reverse the process to install the new one.
Once installed use a large wide mouth glass to bleed the air out of the system and fill the new filter with water,but hold the glass up close to the spigot because the air pushes the water out fast and it has a tendency to splatter.
Hello, first open the Reverse Osmosis faucet and see what the pace of the drip or water stream is. It should be a constant rapid drip. If it is, next disconnect the drain line of the RO System from the Drain Saddle Clamp attached to the plumbing under the sink. The Drain Water should be a "Steady Slow Stream" of water. If it is, next, take a Tire Pressure Gauge and attach it to the Shrader (Tire Valve) Valve at the bottom, side, or top of the storage tank to see what the air pressure is inside of the tank. The Tank pressure should be a minimum of 8-10 psi when completely empty of water. If the tank is empty you should be able to pick it up rather easy. If the air pressure is good in the tank, then next remove the primary Pre-Filter Cartridge from the first filter housing and reattach the filter housing. See if the Dripping from the RO faucet increases in Velocity or Pressure. If so, simply replace the filter. After performing these tests let me know what you discover. Thanks, Victor
