I just replaced my pure soure 2 filter and black water came out. Does this mean the filter is bad? It has never happened before.
Answer Hello Jo Jo,
This happened because charcoal is used in the filter assemblies. There is nothing wrong with the new filter, just run about 2 or 3 gallons of water through it and pour it down the sink before consuming the water to prevent a bad flavor also.
I just replaced the puresource2 water filter on my Frigidaire side by side. I changed it because the green light on the water button went out and we weren't getting any water, just ice, still no water, I tried the hair dryer, tried the reset button but it just blinks red and green while pressing the button, nothing works.
Answer Hello Eileen,
You have to hold the button for several minutes to allow the filter to fill with water. Once it fills, it is recommended to throw away at least two gallons of water to bleed any air from the system, since air in the system will cause about a 3 second delay in water stoppage after releasing the dispense button and possible periodic dripping from the dispense tube. If water is still not dispensing, check the water pressure to the unit, make sure the wires are connected to the valve assembly, and try heating the water tank for at least 15 minutes. If heating the water tank corrects the issue, to prevent it from freezing again, set the fresh food compartment to one setting COLDER to increase air circulation.
Just replaced my water filter and it keeps popping out and leaks. Also my ice maker is not working.
Answer Hello Vicky. The icemaker will not work without the filter. You need to replace the filter head assembly 240396002 in the unit. It is bad.
I just replaced my filter a new filter for my fridge WF2CB-PureSource2 and the water now has a very strange fishy taste to it. Is there something that can be done about this? Also, I noticed that filters now look different, have they changed?
Answer Hello James. Try running about 3 gallons of water through the filter. Then see if the taste is good. Also, make sure the water coming to the unit is not tasting bad before it reaches the unit. If the water is good, and after going through the filter is bad, you may have a bad filter.
