Question about KitchenAid Architect® II KBFS20ETSS Stainless Steel Compact Wine Cooler Side by Side Bottom Freezer French Door

Open Question

I have a Kitchaid KBF5 (S?) 20eEVM52 -- bought within the last 4 months -- and I cannot find the manual. I have questions concerning the water filtering system (i.e. what needs to done with regard to the filter, and where is the filter, etc.). and I'd like to download the correct manual for this model. In your selection I could not identify it, but think you might be able to help me. Thank you, Mary R. Anderson Concord, MA

SOURCE: Water filter

Its on the bottom left of your fridge. 1. Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille. 2. Pull the filter straight out. 3. Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove it from the filter. IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter. 4. Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and turn the cap until it snaps into place. NOTE: You can run the dispenser without a filter. Your water will not be filtered. Simply insert the cap all of the way into the base grille and rotate the cap until it is firmly in place. 5. Remove the protective covers from the O-rings. 6. Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop back out when the filter is fully engaged.

SOURCE: water showing mold like substance visible despite 2 new filters

Hi Sergo,

I had the same problem with my fridge for a while. After changing the filter twice, I determined it wasn't that. I ended up paying about $250 several years ago and called the service repair man. All he did was replace water hose coil reservoir inside the fridge. If you open the fridge and pull out the bottom drawers, you should be able to see the hose coiled up in the fridge. This is your cold water reservoir. If you look very closely at the coil, you might be able to see the mold inside the transparent coil. Replacing the coil fixed my problem. You can order the coil and replace it yourself and save yourself lots of money. The reservoir coil part number is 2209687. Good luck.

SOURCE: Plastic Taste in Refrigerator Water

Hi there, I noticed the same condition when I left the filter in ours a little too long. The optimal performance from the filter is achieved (I have found) when you change it after 3 months. This is about the same amount of time it takes for the light to change from green to red on the filter light.
Hope this helps. ~Steve

SOURCE: Water filter question

WOW! I'd say that the filter is definately due for replacement.

The manufacturer recommends the filter be changed every 6-8 months, as with ice and water dispensers in the door, folks tend to use the chilled water and ice more often, hence you get alot of gallons of water thru the fridge each month.

Once you replace the filter, you'll need to flush out the lines, (see the instructions with the new filter) to get rid of any loose carbon in the filter element, but once you done this, you should also notice better water flow and better tasting water and ice cubes too.

I tend to change my ice/water filter on my fridge every year when I change my smoke detector batteries. That way, I don't forget, sort of like my personal "once-a-year" house task list to change batteries, filters, resetting timers, etc., etc.

It's a good idea to change these smaller filters at a minimum of once a year, as they are no longer providing the filtration you want, and can actually be letting some of the contaminents fow out and into your water and cubes.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I have asked question 4 times ..provided my email..and yr site reply says for 9.99 yr question will be answered..nice thanks for nothing


Hi Monica:
Most large companies tend to like to keep their customers satisfied.
Fixya is intended to help people determine how to solve problems.
It seems to me that your problem is with a specific product, and since you bought it new, it would seem appropriate that you contact the CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPARTMENT of the store where you bought the product.
You could also contact Proctor & Gamble directly, but I would suggest that you only do that if you do not get satisfaction from the store where you made your purchase.
One last suggestion, try to be as pleasant as possible when dealing with anyone involved. Record the dates, times, and nature of your requests and discussions. Service people get to listen to complaints all the time, and they usually react well to a pleasant discussion.
Keep Smiling!
Cheers.

I installed a tankless hot water 3 or 4 months ago , now i'm getting a error code 12


Meter has to be sized to meet need of all gas appliances in home.
Gas line to tankless should be straight from gas meter 1" up to within 10' of heater, and then 3/4" solid pipe as you have.

Hi, last month we bought an intex round pool (18' x 54") with sand pump and salt sanitizer. Within the last 2 days the water started turning green. It turns out my husband accidently set the pump...


You don't want to swim in water that has algae... 1st ...Make sure you have the correct amount of salt. See you manual for amount needed. Must set you pump timer first and sync your chlorinator between that time, if pump turns off before chlorinator cycle ends, you will get an "Low flow" alarm. Set you pump timer to run 12 hours and the chlorinator for 10 to 11 of those hours and should see results within 3 days or so. After that, If you live in an area that is hot, 10 hours pump and 8 to 9 chlorinator... Hope this helps...

Just bought new pump. My old one lasted for 12 years. New one is 4 months old and recently started to make a loud whine or screeching noise when operating. It works fine but is very loud. I have trouble...


Most likely the bearings on the motor are going out. 4 months is way too soon, but it is possible you got a lemon. Unfortunately I wouldn't expect the new one to last 12 years. It's possible but unlikely. You should however get at least a few years. If the shaft seal on the motor shaft between the impeller and seal plate failed then water can drip back along shaft and get into motor bearings. This will cause motor bearings to fail. Even if this is not the case the motor bearings can fail even though it is rare to do so within first year. I would contact the place you bought the pump from, or whoever installed it. It should have at least a one year warranty. If for whatever reason this motor is not covered under warranty and you have to replace it, I would consider rebuilding it. Normally I don't care for rebuilds, but if the motor is truly only 4 months old then rebuilding it would be a good option.
