The problem is at the water lines behind the kick plate. Remove the 3 screws on the kick plate. You should see too water lines a red and a blue coupling. Push the water lines in rather forcefully towards each other. When looking at the couplings on your left hand side you should see a small gray lip. You need to slide those outwards and insert the red clips (that should have been left in the plastic bag with the allen key used to adjust the door height) in between the lip and the coupling as they are compression fittings. This should fix your problem right up!

Can the water filter housing be the cause of slow water when the filter is in place?


Even a new filter will reduce the flow some what. I think the pressure to the filter is low or restricted . that will cause a reduction in flow, no it should not leak, check on the seal.

Water dispenser leaks when getting water . This is Frigidare refrigerator , is it the valve on back ?


Hello Marie Baxter: If you suspect the water dispenser is leaking, make sure it is the hoses coming from the filter and not the actual filter.


Sometimes the clamps on the hoses for fridge water filters can come loose or the hose itself could crack; in which case the hose would need replacing (or tightening the clamp), and not the filter.

If you clearly find the filter is leaking, the best thing to do is make sure it is installed properly.

If it is securely in place, then you may just have a defective filter and changing it will solve the leaking.

You will need to remove the filter, which is typically located in the back of the refrigerator and inspect it to see what condition it is in.


•For instance, if it is black or looks dirty, you probably will want to replace it.


•Moreover, when there is a leak or a clog, you will notice a dramatic decrease in the output of the water dispenser tab, which is another sign there may be a leak in the water filter. If you know the water filter in your refrigerator is leaking, then you can take the water filter out and see if it has anything loose on it, but typically if it is leaking, it probably is best to replace the water filters for refrigerators.


•This is especially true if you use the filtered water from the refrigerator as your main home water filter systems.


•Moreover, if it has been awhile since you changed the filter; it can become clogged over time, which can cause it to leak.


When you are faced with having a leaking filter refrigerator water unit, it helps to think through the pros and cons of fixing the leak vs. replacing the refrigerator water filter.

Replaced DA29-00003B water filter in Samsung Refrigerator (RS2530BBP), with DA29-00003G filter. Water comes out extremely slowly....any suggestions? Tried holding ice type button for 3 seconds and...


Recheck you steps and see the warnings:


1) Turn on the main water supply & shut-off valve of the water
supply line.

2) Run water through the dispenser until the water runs clear
(6~7 minutes). This will clean the water supply system and
clear air from the lines.

3) Additional flushing may be required in some households.

4) Open the refrigerator door and check if water leaks around
the water filter.

Remove any residual matter inside the water supply line after installing filter.

NOTE :A newly-installed water filter cartridge may cause water to briefly
spurt from the dispenser.

Water leaks out of the dispenser


Hi

Under some circumstances the water dispenser can leak water into the spill trap when not in use. This problem could be caused by one of several scenarios involving the installation of the refrigerator doors. Small leaks are often triggered when a new water filter is installed. The exact location of some parts will vary depending on your model of refrigerator.

Keep a glass under the dispenser for up to three seconds after releasing the lever. The water doesn't cut off immediately, and there may be a few remaining drops in the system. This is normal and doesn't need any further attention.Run the water dispenser into a large container for three minutes. Empty the contents of the container down the sink. A newly installed water filter may spurt or leak water from the dispenser until the water is run for a few minutes. Some dispensers may cut off after a few minutes automatically.

Run the dispenser intermittently -- five seconds on, five seconds off -- for two minutes. This measure clears air trapped in the supply line, filter and dispenser system. Some dispensers will spurt or leak water until all air is purged from the system. You should follow this step each time the water is disconnected or the filter changed.Ensure all components of the water supply have been properly connected. All connections should be tightly screwed in place and pipes straight so water doesn't leak out of the pipes or dispenser nozzle. Contact a technician if you didn't install the refrigerator yourself.

The water dispenser keeps leaking even when we are not using it


Hello, if it just leaking slowly check the filter if the filter is fine replace the water valve. If the water will not stop running out like you were pressing the water button replace the switch behind the dispenser.

My water dispenser is leaking. I've replaced the filter and checked the dispenser if it's stuck but it's not. What should I check or replace? Thanks


You models has a tubing coil as a water tank. Once you changed the filter air bubbles remained in the system. Slow leaks or drips from the water dispenser can be the result of air trapped in the water line and will usually occur just after replacing a water filter. When the filter is changed, a large amount of air enters the system and needs to be removed by running water from the dispenser until all the air pockets are gone. Another reason is the water valve itself may not be sealing when closed allowing water pressure from the supply like to work its way into the dispenser water line. This is a less likely reason, but you should be aware of this possibility when diagnosing your own problem. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Water filter leak Whirlpool ed25rfxfw01


I have an undersink filter from Whirlpool that is leaking also. I had an older one that also leaked and I replaced it. Worked fine for about six months then water all over under the sink. I believe it is leaking from the O-ring which seals the body and the cap. I think they have a lousy design and will look for another filter.

sounds like a leak where your incoming water line hooks to the water valves might just need to tighten the coupling or a mouse has chewed through one or both of the lines access the lines on the back and watch while some one gets water out the door to locate the leak
