How do I flush the new filter if my refrigerator only has an ice maker. (no water dispenser).
If your icemaker has a test button on it then you would push the test button and let the icemaker cycle. You will need to do this several times to flush the water line.
I replaced the water filter, emptied the two gallons of water, but the "order" light on the door is still on. I don't remember having to push any type of reset button before?
Answer Hello Ruth. Yes, there should be a button to reset the filter light that you will need to press and hold to reset it. This information should be in your owners manual. Thank you.
Hello, I recently changed my water filter and now the water looks dirty. I discarded multiple cups of water on several occasions to try and correct the issue. However, the water looks exactly the same, dirty and un-drinkable.
Answer Hello Dotson,
Some filters require flushing with at least two gallons of water and it is also possible to receive a filter with a factory defect. If you ordered the filter from us and flushing it further does no good, please call us with the model and serial number and if possible, the order number, at 1-877-477-7278 for a re-ship under the one year part warranty.
We replaced the water filter (pure source Ultra), now no water will come out at all. It was easy to replace- nothing traumatic. Any suggestions on what could be wrong? The ice hasn't worked for a long time. We also have never changed the light bulb- and the current bulb has burnt two holes in the top of the fridge. What can be done?
For the bulbs burning a hole in the top of the liner there is really nothing that can be done for that. As for the water filter being replaced and the water not working, you will want to make sure that the filter went in all the way. If it did then remove the kickplate at the bottom of the unit and disconnect the water tube. Push the water lever on the door and see if water comes from the tube under the unit. If not then the valve sounds like it would be the issue. If it does then the fill tube in the door is frozen and you will want to check to see how cold the freezer compartment is getting and adjust the temperature setting.
How do I fix the icemaker, it is not producing ice.
Answer Hello Jared. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Our Frigidaire refrigerator has an ice maker but no water dispenser. The ice maker has started making ice that appears dirty. The ice has an ash-like film on the surface and through the ice. I changed the ULTRAWF filter 2 days ago, but I'm not sure if the dirty ice began then or if it was happening shortly before I changed the filter. What would cause this?
Answer Gary, If you didn't flush the new filter before you installed it, there could be residual charcoal powder in the filter which will appear in the cubes. If that's the case, the debris in the cubes should subside in a day or two. The other possibility is the ice maker mold has a build up of calcium, hard water, etc. which may need to be cleaned away, or the lining in the mold has started to deteriorate and is flaking off into the cubes. You'll need to remove the ice maker or use a mirror to inspect the mold, when it's empty.
