I HAVE FOUND THAT THEY ARE INSIDE THE FRIDGE IN THE BACK. KINDA LOOKS LIKE A AUTOMOTIVE OIL FILTER.. NOT FUN BUT YOU WILL FIND IT THIS WAY.. PULL ALL THE SHELVES AND THIS WILL GIVE YOU A GREAT VIEW OF THE GOODIES IN THE BACK OF YOUR FRIDGE. AND IF ITS NOT INSIDE IT COULD BE ON THE BACK OF THE FRIDGE, SO YOU WILL NEED TO PULL IT OUT FROM THE WALL., THIS WILL BE EASIER AND SAFER WITH NO FOOD IN IT.. SO IT'S A FRIDGE CLEANING TIME.. YOU CAN USE A MAGIC MARKER TO MARK THE SPOT FOR FUTURE MEMORY LAPSES.. HOPE THIS HELPS ..JAY

I put a new filter in my Sansung Refrigerator and the water taste worse than the old one, why?


I agree with Gramps... the system needs to be flushed, but one question... why did you change the filter in the 1st place... was it cause you had a smell or taste in the water AND ice, or the filter light came on?? I would remove water line going to ref from house plumbing... run water in bucket for 2 min, then take a small taste to see if good..If water taste good, then hook water line back up to ref, and run water at the door for about 1/2 gal, then taste and smell water to see if it passes... If still have problem, you are going to have to replace filter head and/or water reservoir.... But before i did that i would contact Samsung to get their take, depending on age they might send parts at no charge to you the consumer....... Ken Hawk

I saw your response to another Kenmore frig and I have a similar problem I want to ask you about. I have a Side-by-side Kenmore frig(model 106.9555722) that we've had for 16 years!! Other than r


I have seen this one other time in all my years of appliance repair and changing out the "water inlet valve" corrected the problem. I don't have an answer to why it did, but it did. Here is the valve for your unit.
After you change the valve be sure to purge the water line for a good 5 - 10 mins to get all the nasty water out. Keep me posted!

GE fridge 1999 model. water started tasting funny. found black stuff in a peice of ice. Water in rest of house seems fine.


Hello there,
When your water starts tasting funny and you can see some kind of particles in the ice, then it means the water filter is dirty and needs to be changed. Try to get the water filter replaced and the funny taste will stop.
If you are having some kind of lime taste or mud taste, or lime deposits or mineral deposit, is simply means you will have to replace the water line and reservior.
Hope this helped. All the best Elect_Comp

Bad tasting water


Do not use a steel or plastic braided supply line. They make the ice taste bad.

I would not advise using bleach. I would disconnect the pipe from both ends and blow down it, either by mouth or air gun to ensure of no blockages. You should poor away at least 10 cups of water after changing filter to ensure clean fresh water.

Water Tastes Bad


You do not say what type of hose or pipework in supplying water to the unit, if you have a washing machine style hose supplying the water then that is most likely the fault,replace with a copper of clear plastic type pipe, this is avaialbel from your local maytag, amana or admiral stockest you could also try fitting an in line water filter, it is not practicle or possible to replace all the water system components.
