Why are moldy looking particles coming out of my water dispenser?
Ever since changing the filter nasty looking flakes and moldy looking flakes have been coming out of my water dispenser. GE is saying they need to send a tech out and before that I’d like to ask if anyone else has had this issue and see if there is a solution. Yes I’ve removed the faulty filter and replaced with the plug and have run vinegar thru the system multiple times with no success. Any advice is appreciated.
You said that the water filter was faulty, how was it faulty, wasn't it filtering the water?
Have you checked the quality of the water supply connected to the refrigerator?
If you've bypassed the filter with a bypass plug then there's nothing to stop the contaminants from entering if there is a problem with the supply e.g. old pipes perhaps.
Does the ice made in the refrigerator ice maker also have flakes etc in it?
What is the model number of the refrigerator?
Hi @jayeff thank you for the reply. I should've taken a step back before posting my question.
The fridge model is: GFE28GSKKSS
Yes there are no odd flakes or moldy looking particles in the supply from any other faucet in the house.
I replaced the in fridge filter with a hydroviv remote filter and a new supply line.
There are no issues with the ice.
Thanks again for the advice.
