Samsung Ref water bypass leaking


It started out when I changed the water filter and water dispensed slowly then stopped altogether. so went on line seen how many people dealing with this same issue. so I decided to change to inline filter and not deal with built in one. my fridge has automatic bypass when filter not installed. so I did the inline filter but bypass started leaking. I wanted to fix myself because I didn't want to spend $150 on new filter housing and in a few years deal with same problem. So after trying a few fixes from internet which none worked for me an idea came to me. what I did was took the water filter head unit off which had the two 1/4 in. water tubes going to it and disconnected them and bought two 1/4 in. quick connect couplers and water tube used for ref water filters and looped the two tubes from head unit.. see photos... also a 5 year inline filter is $33 at Lowes compared to Samsung 6 month filter $45-$50. so after all fixed including inline filter and braided line hose for filter to fridge my cost was under $60.

Re: Samsung Ref water bypass leaking


Good idea..... I'm sure I'll maybe likely run into the same problem.

(I'm getting pretty fed up wit Samsung. The dryer went out and i had to fix (little use..less than three years old.)

The french door refer lever just snapped off.... did not come as a replaceable part... so I had to buy a whole new handle. Matter of fact, I just installed it maybe 1/2 hour ago...so I felt like *****ing about Samsung.

Thanks Dr Phil.....

Best


And as an edit, Samsung parts are a biotch to find...I think they must use all propriatary related partners. Thank to the lord, we have Amazon 2 day mailing. But I still do not have a local parts supplier I can ask questions of.

Re: Samsung Ref water bypass leaking


I know the feeling, things these days are not built to last (all made of plastic!) The way I see it if the item is out of warranty I'll try and fix it because its already broken I can't break it again and to get repairman to come just take a look at it is $75 plus. A couple of years ago my dryer was not heating up and repair company wanted $200 to fix, so I looked up piece I needed (valve Coil) it was on Amazon for $8 so that and 1/2 hour of my time it was fixed. older dryer so no digital stuff and there actually is not much to a dryer.
