Question about GALAXY Microsystems 25.4 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Filtered Ice and Water
This morning I found quite a large pool of water on our kitchen floor from the fridge. I dried it up and in no time flat, there was more. Finally in the afternoon, I cut the water to the fridge not try and figure out the issue. I'm not a "handyman", but sure would appreciate any help. Also...it's probably time to change out the water filter...where can I get one for this model and how do I change it out? Thanks.
I have the same model is made by Whirlpool just sold under different names. There's a deal on Amazon for the water filter they only last 6 months so I am getting two for a year.
Link below will give you and idea of what to buy. The filter is sold at Sears also for $39 each well in my area. Online seems cheaper.
But you should also check where the water goes in the lower right side of the rear. I say right if you standing in the rear. There should be either a plastic or copper tube for the cold water to go in for the ice maker and drinking water. Kits for these are cheap for the plastic than for the copper. Plastic should run $10 to $20 bucks depends on where you go.
The only items you have to worry about is for the water pressure stem to be inserted through the tightening nut (copper) which the plastic of copper tubing goes through. That's it. Make sure there is not leaks their. Also check the tapping valve which connects to your cold side where you had turned it off for leaks. If that looks good then the water filter is leaking.
To remove (---) that just turn counter clock wise. (left) ( | )
The picture below is what it looks like after you turn it up and pull it out. Note there is a slide out knob that you remove and place on the new one. Insert like you see in the picture link | then to the right (----)
That's it.. Again it's not hard to do once you get the hang of it.
