The large fill tube that goes through the back of the refrigerator keeps freezing, then the ice maker stops making ice. The water dispenser does not work when the filter is in place, but it does work when the bypass cap is in place of the filter.
Answer Hello Max,
This is either low water pressure to the unit or a failed water inlet valve 67006531. Check that the supply facet is on all the way, make sure there are no crimped water lines, and it normally isn't a bad idea to remove the water line from the unit and put it in a bucket or plastic trash can and turn it on to check for sufficient water pressure. The reason for all of this is the fact that the water valve contains no spring or anything to aid in its' closure. The only thing that closes the water valve is water pressure. When it is energized, the coils magnetic field kicks the valve open. The water pressure pushes the valve back to the closed position when the magnetic field breaks down.
There is another possibility. If the motor module W10190935 is out of time from one of the little plastic tabs in the center of the white plastic geared wheel being broken or if a set of contacts inside it are stuck closed. This isn't as common but not unheard of.
As far as the water filter goes, you could either have a bad water filter or the water filter housing 67006524 has failed. Since the bypass makes it work, I suspect the filter is bad, not activating the switches that the filter and the bypass head activates.
When I remove the filter to replace it, the water does not stop. I have to place a bucket under the water filter housing and work fast. Why is this happening?
Answer Hello Diane,
These are funny that way. The filter seal is also damaged if you remove it with water pressure on it. It is recommended to turn off the water to the unit and bleed off the pressure by dispensing water through the door. If you change it then, it will not do this. For some reason, Frigidaire is the only manufacturer who makes a unit with this quirk.
WATER FILTER HOUSING # AP4080986($43.53) AND AP4080076($39.14) ARE BOTH LISTED AS FITTING MY JENNAIR JFC2089HPF - BUT THE END FITTINGS LOOK DIFFERENT IN THE PICTURES. IS THE LESS EXPENSIVE ONE A CORRECT FIT?? THANKS.
Answer Steve, There are three different water filter housing(s) for the three different versions of your refrigerator : 67004106 12590620 67006524 . JFC2089HPF , JFC2089HPF3 or JFV2089HPF12, You'll need to determine the complete model number, and order the correct housing based on that. If you wish, you could supply us the the model and serial number of your fridge, and we can research and advise you of the proper part you'll need. Thanks and Good Luck
How do you connect this housing to the back of the refrigerator? I am having trouble with the tube with the blue markings.
Answer Hi Wayne. Release the filter cover catch and remove the cover. Remove the filter. Remove the mount screw in the back (center) bottom of the filter mount. Then from the back of the cabinet, pop out the Styrofoam block that wedges into the water filter lines going to the filter head. Once these filter lines are disconnected from the water valve below then you can pull the water filter head w/lines out from inside the cabinet and replace it. Reassemble in reverse steps. Thank You.
How do you replace this part? In particular, how do to thread the hose with the threaded coupling through the opening to the fridge?
Answer Hello Doc. You will remove the styrofoam block on the back of the refrigerator. The block pulls out of the hole from the back. Once removed, the lines will pull out and push through to the filter housing 67006524. Hope this helps.
