SOURCE: I can not get the water filter out. It won't

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today. Try turning off the water supply and dispensing any water you can out of the water dispenser after the water is off. This might reduce the pressure on the filter and make it a little more easy to remove.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

SOURCE: change water filter indicator came

This unit has water dispenser and ice maker? If yes, you must get all the air out of your water line, how to do this is keep fill water glasses until you get a good flow of water and no more air, also the water may drip some what so. until all the air is pushed out of the line your ice maker can not make any ice, please let me know what you find. Thanks Rick...

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

I need to change the water filter in my samsung srs618dp fridge freezer. I have the filter but cannot locate the internal part in the fridge i need to change.


For Samsung side-by-side refrigerators, there are two possible locations. One is in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator. The other is behind the veggie drawer.

To access the filter, either remove the top glass shelf or the vegetable bin. Turn off the water to the refrigerator. If no filter is currently in use, remove the cap. If a filter is in use, remove the old filter. Turn clockwise to remove the old filter. Save the cap to reinstall if the fridge is ever used without the filter. Note the date when you put in the new filter and place the sticker on the filter. Remove the red cap from the new filter and align the unlock mark with the filter mark on the filter housing in the refrigerator. (Looks like an unlocked padlock with the u part turned 180 degrees from the rest of the lock). Turn the new filter counter-clockwise 90 degrees until the lock symbol (closed padlock) lines up with the mark on the housing. Use steady firm pressure - it will be hard to turn. This ensures a tight seal. Turn on the water line and check for leaks. If the filter isn't leaking replace the shelf or the vegetable drawer.

Samsung support for the SRS618dp is here: http://www.samsung.com/au/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP00&prd_ia_cd=2201&prd_mdl_cd=RS23DENS1%2FRAD&prd_mdl_name=SRS618DP&srchword=SRS618DP .

I hope this helps.

I have been unable to remove the wter filter. I have tried to turn it 1/4 of an inch clockwise as described in the owners manual but the filter won't budge. any suggestions?


OK maybe try 1/4 inch counterclockwise and pull down. Here is what the service manual quotes.

sea_breeze_170.jpg
That is easy for anyone to misread.
Water Filter Removal

The water filter is located in the upper right-hand

corner of the refrigerator. The water filter filters water

for the ice maker and the water dispenser.

1. Turn the water filter 1/2 turn counterclockwise and

pull it down.

2. To install the filter, align the indication mark

(unlock position) and push it up while turning 1/2

turn clockwise until the lock position is aligned.

Do not over tighten.
That would be to the left while facing the filter and opposite for installation. Note where and when to push up. Please let me know if you have any questions and please rate if I am able to help you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

How do u replace water filter on samsung refrigerator side by side model number rs2630sh


The water filter in the extra space behind the vegetable Bin.

1) As shown, the fixed cap separates from the refrigerator by rotating
it counterclockwise.
Remove the water filter from the box and put a month indicator
sticker on the filter as shown on the next page.
2) The water filter should be replaced every six months, so if the filter
was installed in March (for example), put on the "SEP" sticker
to remind you to change the filter.
3) Remove the protective cap, then position and insert the
filter as shown.
4) Slowly turn the water filter clockwise 90º to align
the indication mark on the cover, locking the filter in position.

Or go here bottom of page 24 top of 25.

Water filter won't come out when I push the button


Push button? It should be a turn to the left to remove if it is a whirpool located at the bottom. These are twist out not push to release. The only push to releases are made by electrolux.
