Where is the water filter and how do I change it out?

I just got this fridge from my mom and dad, and they never messed with the filter in the fridge because they had a filter in the wall of the house. Where is the filter located and how do I change it out?

The Roper ref is basically a Whirlpool ref. The filter on a side by side unit usually is down the botton in the grille area slightly to the left of the center post. The grille will have a round hole opening, and filter should be there. The other place is in the ref section at the top rear right hand corner. The other possibility is that the unit may NOT have a filter. Not all units had them. If the unit is older than 5 yrs or so, ir propably did not have one and thus the external filter your parents were using. Or your parents took the filter out and the opening is empty. These units have an automatic by pass in them so they can be used without a filter or that an external one could be used.

How to change the water filer on a rf4267hars 25.5 ft

You must shut the water valve to change the water filter. If you don't havewater valve near the fridge, shut the main water valve for few minutes. If you turn the water filter to change without shutting the water valve, lots of water flooring the fridge and you do lots of work to remove the water inside the fridge. Shut the water valve, and then replace the filter. Then turn the water valve.

Hi, I have a GE Monogram side by side refrigerator. Like many others, the ice maker works but not the water dispenser. I changed the water filter, but didn't help. Did the blow drier thing to unfreeze...

Those cylindrical shaped things with wires connected to it are solenoids. Each one with different purpose. One should be for the ice maker, and the other one for the water. It's best to have an assistant depress the water dispenser while you look back there if the solenoid opens the water valve at the bottom rear of the refrigerator. If the solenoid is bad, you would have to replace the whole solenoid assembly. The part itself cost at least one hundred dollars to about 170 dollars. You may also find out the cause of the leak while someone press the dispenser as you observe whats going on at the bottom rear of the unit. Good luck

The extra dollar is still in your pocket, you only gave a total of $2.00 back but you got $3.00 back from the store when you gave them the $100.00

If the light in the luggage area works, you have a burned out bulb at the back seat. The fuses are all in the same fusebox but the interior lights won't work at all, if the fuse is gone.

Water filter question

WOW! I'd say that the filter is definately due for replacement.

The manufacturer recommends the filter be changed every 6-8 months, as with ice and water dispensers in the door, folks tend to use the chilled water and ice more often, hence you get alot of gallons of water thru the fridge each month.

Once you replace the filter, you'll need to flush out the lines, (see the instructions with the new filter) to get rid of any loose carbon in the filter element, but once you done this, you should also notice better water flow and better tasting water and ice cubes too.

I tend to change my ice/water filter on my fridge every year when I change my smoke detector batteries. That way, I don't forget, sort of like my personal "once-a-year" house task list to change batteries, filters, resetting timers, etc., etc.

It's a good idea to change these smaller filters at a minimum of once a year, as they are no longer providing the filtration you want, and can actually be letting some of the contaminents fow out and into your water and cubes.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
