normally low water flow would indicate filter change. however i changed filter two months ago. using the wonderful information available on this website, figured i'd try changing the water filter head with tubing, as it seemed that water flow w/o filter, although substantially better than with filter, might be low. unfortunately changing water filter head didn't solve problem. it was the bloody filter after all! however the repair went well, the correct part arrived in a timely fashion, and over the course of time i think that the spring mechanism inside the filter head had weakened and was not making as solid as contact as when new. so it was i feel a worthwhile repair as water flow is now awesome with new filter in place. thanks guys for your great website. you are making the world a better place!

Chatter In Water Line/Water Dispenser Inop After Replacing Filter

  • Customer: Jason from Virginia Beach, VA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

First, the problem is not the double outlet water valve if your water dispenser begins to chatter and stop dispensing water - although the valve is a common failure. Replacing the top filter mount was a straight forward repair: 1. Turn off the water 2. Disconnect the two water lines 3. Unscrew the small screws covering the exit port (exterior, top, back, left of unit) 4. Remove the filter cover (squeeze the left side in and pull on right side) 5. Remove the filter 6. Unscrew the two screws holding the mount in place 7. Remove the filter by pulling the tubing (two water lines disconnected earlier) through 8. Install new mount in reverse order. Note: the top filter housing mount comes with a bypass filter. . . Don't add another to the cart

Low water output & Vibration at Filter

Removed plate on back top of fridge, removed filter and cover then removed 2 screws inside, removed cover at bottom of fridge removed water line going into solenoid, removed water intake line from wall and pulled filter assembly out of fridge. Install just did reverse one note there is a caulk around the lines in the back of the fridge peel that out and save it and once hoses are back in place press the caulk back into place around the hoses. DOUBLE check the part you order I mistakenly ordered the one with a male end on the intake line and needed a female end was easy fix with a compression fitting though. Apparently sediment accumulates in the assembly on the intake side so it will not give the filter enough water to distribute and there is NO way to clean it out.

The water despenser flow was slow.

Shut off water supply and disconnect water line. Remove the pannel on the lower back and disconect the water line from the water filter head. Remove the water line guide hole cover. Remove the water filter and the water filter enclosure which needs on tools to remove. Remove the two nut screws at the top with a ong 1/4 inch nutdriver or a 1/4 socket and a long extention. Pull water filter head and tubing out. Install the new water filter head with tubing. Be careful not to over tighten the nut screws holding the water filter head in place. Replace water filter and connect the tubing. Trun on the water supply and run water through the water despenser until no air comes out. Check for leaks. If there is no leaks replace the the water filter enclosure, the tubing guide hole cover, and the lower pannel on the back.

killed power-gently pried out old switch using two screw drivers-replaced faulty switch-and tested OK.

Ice dispnser worked intermitently. My diagnosis led me to the freezer door light switch. Switch operated the light but stopped the ice dispenser. After replacing the switch the dispenser operates every time now. problem solved.
