Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX you for choosing our service.

Look in the fresh food section up near the top for model/serial sticker and post the model number. I need the model to be able to see the diagrams.

Are you able to see the area that is leaking? Is it actually leaking from the filter the part the filter attaches too?

Thanks,
Barry

The model # XXXXX XXXXX


It is leaking directly from the filter.

Look on the filter mount with the filter removed. There should be 2 o-rings there. Inspect those very well. Does one look like it may have gotten a cut?

Thanks,
Barry

Where would I turn the water off so I can take the filter out?

There is a check valve, when you remove the filter there should be no water, it should stop. Is that not happening?

There is a water line connected to your refrigerator, you will need to follow that line to the nearest cutoff.

Thanks,
Barry

The water does not stop when I remove the filter. I would need to pull the fridge out to find the water line. Is there a break or something that need to be released before I can pull it out?

No its automatic, it has either got pushed up inside the hole it pops out from or it has broken.

It is the part I have arrowed below and it should be out like that to stop the water flow. There is not a standard place for an installer to put a cutoff. There could be a valve or it could be connected to any water line anywhere. The only way to find it if you do not know where it is to follow the water line. Look under the sink and see if maybe it is connected to a clamp around a water line.

Thanks,
Barry

I am hesitant to take the filter out again and the water doesn't stop. It appears that the water supply is in the back and I need to pull the fridge out. Something needs to be done before I can pull it out. Can you please help?

Turn off the water to the house, open all the faucests then remove the filter and see if maybe that part is pushed up in the hole. Can you do that?

Sure - I will try that

Great, turning on all the faucets should keep most of the water out of the refrigerator after you turn the water off.

I did that and checked and the part is not pushed in. When turning the water back on it is still leaking. Maybe it is an issue with the O-rings. I will most likely need to have somebody come out.

I understand, that on a smaller refrigerator would be a repair you could make. On that one it is a big job, you might try your old filter and see if that one leaks while installed. It probably will. That housing where the filter screws on will have to be changed it definitely should not leak with no filter so it is damaged there around that valve I arrowed for you. . What makes it a big job is there are 2 lines that come with it, those go out through a wall and connect to the water inlet valve.
