Question about Freezers

1 Answer

Rs261mdrs I changed the water filter on my fridge and when I install the new one, water will not come out. I put the old one back in, and water won't out of it anymore either. Water will come out when the filters are not in. I held down the dispenser for almost 30 minutes to clear air out of the line, but to no avail. It was working fine till I tried to change the filter--Any ideas on what the problem could be? Thanks-Kate

SOURCE: Water pours down the back(Internally) ofmy Liebherr Frost Free Fridge freezer.

It is most likely a broken water tank in back wall of refrigerator section remove the crisper drawers you will see the tank it holds about 1.5 gal of water to keep it chilled for the dispenser. check all around it with the water on and someone getting water out of the dispenser at the same time check the seams closely. you should find the leak there let me know if not we may have to look into the water inlet valve

Hold down the "ice type" and "child lock" buttons (bottom button on the left and the right) together for about three seconds. The light will change back to green.

SOURCE: Frigidaire won't make ice & dispenses only about 4 oz. cold water

Water frozen in the freezer supply line - you need to thaw out the freezer. About six hours, door open, turn freezer OFF. You'll need a cooler with dry ice for your frozen food. 99% certain it'll work after that.

How to chage the water filter

Shut off water supply first. I believe you have to prep the filter in water prior to installing. Follow those instructions. When you take the filter off, simply be careful as you unscrew the holding mechanism and put the new one on just reverse of how you took off the old one.

My Maytag side by side with water dispenser and ice maker doesn't work. We bought a house - never lived in - and the fridge and freezer work fine. We replaced the water filter and find that no water comes...

The sadle valve is located on the copper pipe where the tube attaches to your water pipe in the house. Shut the water off at the saddle valve. Remove the hose from the rear of the frig on the water inlet valve and put it into a pail. Tunr the water on at the saddle valve and see how fast the water comes out. Some times if the saddle valve is installed on the bottom of the copper pipe they will get corrosive and restrict water flow. Open and close the valve several times to make sure it is clear and reinstall the hose to the rear of the frig. Turn the water back on to see if it works.

Orange light in the shape of a leaking bucket. Side by side fridge/freezer with ice maker and water dispenser

I think you are referring to the water filter alarm. When it first starts coming in, you only notice it when you blink. As time passes, the color becomes more pronounced....If this is right, we'll move on from here, if not, please re-post, and please don't mention the village idiot (me).
The alarm can come on if a high differential pressure is sensed across the filter, or it can come on at pre-programmed times. If the fridge is relatively new, and the quality of the water is good, you can reset the alarm. On my model, I hold down the "ice type" and "child lock" buttons for about 5 seconds. The actual filter is located in the fridge, on the upper right hand side. These filters are somewhat expensive. I say that to say this....You can extend the life of your filter by installing an in-line filter between the wall water valve and the back of the fridge. This will act as a pre-filter for the Samsung filter. They cost usually about a quarter of the cost of the Samsung filters, and are easily replaced. Should you decide to replace your filter, Ebay is a very good source at a less than retail price.
Hope this was what you needed...regards --W/D-- Please feel free to rate this solution!

Poor tasting Ice

There could be a filter installed. The filter usually looks like a long tube about 6-10" long and about 1-3" round.
Try to located the water line. This will be either a copper or plastic tube about 1/4" diameter and will be going into your fridge from the back of the unit.
The filter could also be located at the point of where the water is being supplied from. Possibly under your sink or it could of been tapped into another line in the basement if you have one.
If you located a filter, you will be able to see if you would be able to remove it and replace it on your own. It usually takes a couple of wrenches, but MAKE SURE YOU SHUT THE WATER SUPPLY OFF FIRST before attempting to remove it or else you might have to go swimming. (Actually it's a small tube, so not a lot of water will come out, but you still need to shut off the water supply to the fridge. Then you can bring the old filter into your local hardware store and get a replacement.
I hope this helps.
Good luck.
Mac =)
