The water filter of your refrigerator at times goes for a toss, and when that happens, it shows up through some telltale signs that you cannot ignore. You need to hire a seasoned professional from a reputed company that carries out fridge repairs in Darlinghurst or elsewhere near Sydney to have the filter repaired or replaced, depending upon its condition.
Here the signs that are sure shot symptoms of a faulty water filter in a refrigerator.
The Taste of the Dispensed Water Deteriorates
The water that your fridge emits should taste absolutely clean, or at most may taste like plastic faintly. However, if that is not the case – if the water contains a rotten or pungent taste or smell, or if there is a rusty metallic tinge in the taste, then all is not right with the fiter. You must immediately summon a quality professional to take care of the filter. Remember, a dirty or faulty filter can start spreading contaminants all over the refrigeration system, if not cleaned, repaired or replaced on time.
The Ice Smells Bad
This ‘bad-smell phenomenon’ not just remains restricted to water, if and when the filter of your fridge goes for a toss. The ice also starts smelling bad. At first, you might not get the smell. However, as the ice starts melting, it will start emitting the smell. Also, you will find multi coloured stains on the ice. Now, there may be several reasons. An uncleaned ice bin or freezer can be behind bad ice, but if the two are clean, it must be the filter that is responsible. You must hire professional performing fridge repairs in Camperdown to take a look at the water filter immediately.
There Will Be a Slow Trickle of Water
The water filter of the fridge is connected to the in-line of the water system of the fridge. This implies, the water that runs through the refrigerator has to at first run through the water filter. Now if the water filter is stuffed with filtered particles and is clogged as a result, the water will have a tough time finding its way through. This results in an almost perpetual fine trickle of water, caused by insufficient water pressure.
Ice Will Be Dispensed in Small Cubes
The above mentioned phenomenon will have another outcome. You will find your fridge dispensing smaller ice cubes. This happens when the fill spout that fills up the ice mould of the refrigerator does not run fast enough due to the presence of impurities in the filter. Naturally, the mould does not have enough water, which leads to smaller ice cubes. You must hire a professional who is good enough in fridge repairs in Greenacre or elsewhere.
Water or Ice Containing Black Specs
Water filters in fridges are mostly charcoal filters, which contain millions of tiny charcoal fleck dusts that remove the contaminants from the water flowing through. At times a few of these black specks may escape and get into the ice or the water, and that shows off. However, if you find too many of them contaminating the water or the ice, then the filter must have leakage and it has to be changed.
