My frigidaire refrigerator has terrible chemical smell


FOUL TASTE OR SMELL IN ICE OR WATER FROM FRIDGE

Check ice and water filter: If equipped, the Ice and Water filter in your refrigerator is responsible for removing any debris or contaminants from your water that may still remain after local water treatment. Most filters contain and are made up of carbon and fabric filter. Over time, the filter may become restricted and reduce the water flow to the ice maker, causing a symptom of little or no ice. Most manufacturers recommend replacing the filter every 6 months but local water conditions may require that you replace more frequently. Lastly a clogged drain line can cause a foul smell and get into the ice and water as we,,.

The water in our area was flushed after the flushing we replaced the water filter because the water tasted foul. Well now the ice still taste foul. We have dumped the ice container serveral times and...


did you flush the refrigerator at all? Run water through it for about 10 minutes and that should do 2 things breakin your filter so it doesnt taste so foul. Also clear out any rust, dirt, or other contaminents that may be in your system after they flushed the water in your area.

Water is (dirty) things are floating in the water. white "fakes" big and small


This could be from sediment that forms on the inside of the tubing from the filter through the reservoir in the refrigerator and to the water dispenser. I had this happen a while back. I had to replace the tubing and water reservior. It solved the problem.

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.

I have an Amana refrigerator, model #ABB1922FEB2. The ice that is made by the automatic ice maker has a foul odor and taste. The water that comes out of our faucet tastes fine, and it's the same water...


Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice New plumbing connections? New plumbing connections
can cause discolored or off-flavored ice.
Ice stored too long? Discard ice. Wash ice bin. Allow
24hours for ice maker to make new ice.
Odor transfer from food? Use airtight, moisture proof
packaging to store food.
Are there minerals (such as sulfur) in the water? A water
filter may need to be installed to remove the minerals.
Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or dark
discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration system
needs additional flushing. Flush the water system before
using a new water filter. Replace water filter when indicated.
See "Water Filtration System
To purchase a replacement water filter, model UFK8001AXX-750,
contact your dealer or call 1-877-232-6771 U.S.A. or

I have water leaking constantly around the water filter. I have changed filters and still have the leak.


When you change out the filters are you keeping the same fittings? It might be those..or some faulty tubing perhaps?

I need to replacethe water line from the valve assy to filter


I think I can help. These are a strange looking fitting that looks like the line is just pushed in but not held by anything. If you look closely you will notice that the fitting is a small cylinder shaped piece with a lip on the tubing side. it may also seem loose. Slide the lip of the fitting in opposite direction of tubing and pull tubing out. Be ready with a towel though because this will release a bit of water. Wish I had a diagram to show you. then you could see this process. Hope this helps and good luck.
