Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today.
well the only place that could happen after the filter and before the dispenser is in the water reservoir behind the crisper inside the refrigerator. pull the crisper out and you will see it. the replacement is a tube now and you may already have the tube instead. it will look like this. can you take a look ?
hi. will take a look.
I looked behind the crisper and I see sections of the thin water tube back there and it seems to be channeling water into a large sig sig plastic tubing that must help the crisper area stay cold. all the thin and think tubing is fairly transparent to a degree and I didn't observer any gunky stuff anywhere. Maybe I should clarify something too.. when I say that it seems like the gunk must be somewhere after the filter and before the dispenser... when I say before the dispenser, I really mean before the very end of the copper tube that the water comes out of. So could the gunk be building up to really really close to where the copper pipe is sticking out and where the water actually comes out into the glass? also, or could the problem really be the filter itself... in other words are filters sort of know for sometimes things/gunk getting dislodged from inside the filter and making their way thru the tubing all the way into a glass of water?
ah, you're right, the exit tube is black plastic. Actually, according to the schedule we should have replaced the filter a few days ago. So I guess, if it really is possible for gunk that the filter is catching to get dislodged and flow forward thru the tubing, then is that what we should figure is the problem and just replace the filter? (it's just hard to imagine that such a large piece of gunk could escape from a filter which is designed to hold onto micro particles....) Is there generally then no other suspect area where gunk might collect and suddenly dislodge and flow out into a glass of water?
