Hello from our service,

My name is Chas, I am so happy to help you today.
Before we get started, I would like to help us get on the same page so that our interaction will go smoothly.
I might give you an answer immediately, or ask you a question. Either way, we are likely to be in a question and answer format, so you will need to click reply to expert if:
a. You want to add detail.
b. Your question was not fully answered.
c. You want to ask further questions.

Since I am inviting you back to do any of these, do not use a 1 or 2 rating or this will likely NOT help you get a satisfactory answer. It will delay our task, and it tends to be depressing for the expert trying to help you, often right at the beginning of the exchange, before we have accomplished our task.

I know the rating system is somewhat complicated, but you do not have to do a negative rating in order not to pay or to get your deposit back.

In addition, a negative rating only serves to rate the expert doing his/her utmost to help you. The expert also will not get paid under these circumstances.

Negative ratings do not cover site problems, delays, or anything else on the site that might annoy you, as experts are only involved in trying to answer your questions.

Negative ratings do not cover posts that do not come through, or any other difficulties...experts face those just as you do. This includes frustrations that you might have had before meeting your expert.

I would like to say that we are also on the honors system. I in good faith am going to do my utmost to ensure your satisfaction. But, it is up to your honor to click a smiley face and make sure that I am compensated for my time and effort. Please realize we are only compensated PER smiley per click and from bonuses, so extensive time with you would hopefully stimulate your consideration of this aspect of the system.



No this model does not have a water filter you can install one behind the fridge if you like.

All I ask of you is to please rate me with one of the top 3 ratings. If there is anything else I can help you with today just let me know. You can continue asking questions for as long as you like even after you rate me. Click the continue conversation link if you would like to continue this conversation. If you are done and rate a 1 or 2 star please consider using the "continue conversation" link and telling me what more I can do or what more you would have liked that was within my power so that I possibly give you that information or help me improve my customer satisfaction rating. . .

Bonuses are welcome if I have helped you a lot, however they are not mandatory

Thank you for the quick response. Forgive me for being a bit skeptical, since my model fridge is pretty old (1999). Can you explain to me how you know this filter will work?

It attaches into the water line that you have hooked to the fridge itself, and they have not changed that in 25 years now they have used the same connection setup, it comes with install instructions.

Alright, thank you I will pick that up today. Also on a somewhat related note, the water slide that goes into the ice maker is so caked with ice that water cannot pass through it anymore. I was considering to use a hair dryer to try and melt it, but I am concerned it will happen again, and I have no clue why. Any thoughts?

IT may happen again, if that is so and the problem returns after melting all that ice, you may need a new valve installed to repair that problem. but just see if the problem returns first before doing that..

Ok, and could you attach a link for a proper valve for this fridge?

Here is a link for the water valve.
