I have found particles (black to dark gray) in my ice coming out of the freezer. Most of the particles seem to be embedded in the ice. i replaced the filter, and have had a few particles since although none in a few days. Could this be a malfunction of the filter? Whirlpool says to replace the supply line?
Answer AGI, A couple of things to check, Remove or use a mirror to check the ice mold of the ice maker. Sometimes the coating on the mold deteriorates and flakes off into the cubes. Check the water reservoir tank, behind the crisper drawers see if there is any debris or sediment developing in the tank. Make sure you change the filter according to the manufacturers recommendations.
I had a water heater replaced and the guy had to turn the main water supply off but when he finished and turned the water back on, my filter to my refrigerator literally broke out and water was going everywhere. Is that caused by air being built up because the the water was off and it was too much pressure?
Answer Hello Shirlene,
The pressure would have to be what caused it to burst. All I can figure is that since air can be compressed and liquid cannot, the water pressure rushing in had to have built up excessive pressure from the airs' compression. I would have the water pressure regulator to the home checked by the utility board or your plumber. This isn't something that you hear about happening unless there was a weak place in the filter that would have burst anyway or excessive pressure is present in the water supply.
