Any time that you replace the water filter you need to run about 2 gallons through the dispenser. The new filter is full of air not water, you just need to flush the air out of the system. The trickle is water siphoning through because the air is still in the system.

    if this happened right after you changed the filter, then make sure the filter is installed all the way. Also it could be the fill valve not allowing enough water through at a time. it would be just coinsidense if it were the valve (nothing to do with changing filter)

Low water at dispenser


Hello Chuck, thank you for your post!
From the information you have provided you are receiving low water pressure at the dispenser on your Frigidaire refrigerator. This could be due to a dirty or clogged filter and I would check to see when you last replaced it. I have researched model FRS3R5EMB and show the water filter is part number WFCB.

If you have changed your filter within the past six or nine months the low pressure could be due to an obstruction within the water line or an issue within the dispenser. Since it could be anyone of these underlying issues I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope that this information is helpful to you. -Matt

How and where do you change water filter


From the KitchenAid Manual:

The water filter is located in the upper right-hand corner of the
refrigerator compartment.

Replacing the Water Filter
To purchase a replacement water filter, model 67003523 Part
Number 4396395, contact your dealer or call 1-800-442-9991
U.S.A. or 1-800-807-6777 Canada.
IMPORTANT: Air trapped in the water system may cause water
and filter to eject. Always dispense water for at least 2 minutes
before removing the filter or blue bypass cap.

1. Turn filter counterclockwise to remove.
2. Remove sealing label from replacement filter and insert the
filter end into the filter head.
3. Turn the filter clockwise until it stops. Snap the filter cover
closed.
4. Flush the water system. Depending on your model, see
"Water Dispenser" or "Water and Ice Dispensers."
NOTE: The dispenser feature may be used without a water filter
installed. Your water will not be filtered. If this option is chosen,
replace the filter with the blue bypass cap.

I understand the correct manufacturers number for the PuriClean II water filter for your refrigerator should be UKF8001 or UKF8001AXX, that you have the correct filter, and you have plenty of water out of the dispenser when the filter is not installed. If all that information is accurate you have 30 pounds or more water pressure (although the minimum is 20 pounds the higher the pressure the better for flow will be), then I would try holding the filter under the faucet to be certain the water flows through the filter without a lot of resistance. If that checks out, I would look for a gasket or some other part from the old filter that is stuck in the filter housing.

I've just replaced the water filter and the flow rate on the water dispenser is as slow as it was before. I ran the dispenser to remove the air from the system so I know that is not the problem. The flow...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Most water flow problems that are common to both the ice maker and water dispenser are either a supply volume or filter problem. Since you already have replaced the filter that points directly to a supply volume problem. Water connections for refrigerators are often connected by using a saddle valve on the side of a water pipe. The saddle valves have a rubber gasket that is clamped to the side of the pipe to prevent leakage. The gasket over time can swell due to being clamped or plumbing debris can block the small hole that ports water to the refrigerator water supply.

Here is what I recommend. Disconnect the water line where it connects to the back of your unit. If you have the press in type connection (no visible fittings) at the water inlet valve I recommend you get a brass compression coupling and cut the plastic line vs pulling the plastic line out of the water valve. Install the coupling on the plastic line so you will have a connection to check the flow rate.
The incoming flow rate should be the same as the water dispenser flow rate. If the incoming flow rate is faster then the problem is with the refrigerator internal plastic tubing. Most of the time when this discrepancy appears it will be in the door hinge area that the tubing is flattened causing a restriction in water flow. Since you are having both ice maker and water dispenser problems... your problem most likely is strictly water supply line related. Correct the water supply problem.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kelly

Want to know when and how to replace water filter on a ge side by side refrig


Hello,

The water filter status light or indicator, present on some models, will help you know when to change your water filter. The light, or indicator, is located either on the temperature control panel in the refrigerator compartment or on the dispenser control panel on the freezer door.

The indicator will be one of two styles.

If the indicator is a light or series of lights, the light will change from green to yellow. This tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. It is recommended that you replace the filter when the status light changes to red or when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases.
If the indicator resembles a stack of bars, the bar height will decrease and the status display will change from "Good" to "Order." This tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. Replace the water filter cartridge when the water filter status display changes to "Replace" or when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases.
If a filter status light/indicator is not present, the filter should be changed at least once every 6 months. Your filter may need to be replaced more frequently depending on your usage and water quality.

If the water flow to the water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases before 6 months have passed, you may need to replace the water filter cartridge more often. Decreased water flow is a sign that the filter is clogged and needs to be replaced.

If the filter is clogged and you are not able to immediately replace it, remove the filter so the water system is in bypass mode. With the filter removed, the water system will continue to operate, bypassing the filter, and the clogged filter will not cause slow water dispensing or low ice production. However, in order to have filtered water, you will need to install a new filter.


The filter status display will help you know when to change your
water filter. When the display reads 10%, order a new filter. It is
recommended that you replace the filter when the display reads 10% OR when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases.

The filter should be replaced at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and usage.

Step 2
Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille.

Step 3
Pull the filter straight out.

Step 4

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.

Step 5
Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and
turn the cap until it snaps into place.

Step 6
Remove the protective covers from the O-rings. Be sure the O-rings are still in place after the covers are removed.

Step 7
Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop back out when the filter is fully engaged.

Step 8
Flush the water system. Use a sturdy cup or glass. Depress and hold the
water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat this process until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever. Hold down for 5 seconds and then release for 5 seconds. Do this on/off process for about 2 minutes. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing

Hope this helpout in changing the water filter......

Decreased water flow from dispenser GE GSS25WGTA refrigerator


This is usually caused by the water inlet valve not opening all the way or it got clogged up. The valve assembly will need to be replaced, don;t try cleaning it out it will likely cause a clog further up the tube. They are usually pretty inexpensive and easy to replace.

Disconnect the water line where it comes out of the water inlet valve and see how the flow is when you try the dispenser. Disconntct the water line at the bottom of the freezer door where it goes into the door. If it flows good here it may be freezing in the door. Open the door till it thaws.
If it's good at the inlet valve and slow at the door, some models have a way to put a plug in and bypass the filter.
