Water filter motor was making a grinding noise recently so we unscrewed and screwed it back on then after a few days is made the same noise when trying to dispense water. The filter is only a few months old. Whats wrong? It's Now stopped working and its not making ice. Does the ice water pass through the filter and can you correct this?
The ice and water for the unit does pass through the filter and either the filter itself is faulty and would need to be replaced or the issue will be the filter head assembly. You would want to insert a bypass plug into the filter head and check to see if you are still getting the same noise. If not then the filter is faulty and if it is still making the noise then the issue would be the filter head assembly.
