Water Filter have to be replaced every 6 months. The original Water Filter is expensive. So I decided to short the Filter and placed a cheap Filter outside.

    • BEFORE DEINSTALLING THE FILTER CUT OFF THE WATER LINE. Lay a Towel in the Fridge. Also cut off AC Mains. This is an opened Waterfilter. Inside is a sort of coal which adsorbs unhealthy particles. It has to be changed every 6 months or less.

    • First take out three drawers. The Meat drawer is top, the Vitaminsafe is in the middle and the Freshzone is lowest. Between Meat & Vitaminsafe is a Bottom which is snaped in with clipse. Use a plastictool or a woodpiece to open the clips and remove the bottom. There are no screws.

    • Behind the lowest drawer is an plastic panel, which can easy be pulled off. Now you can see the Water-reservoir for the Water Outlet. Also you can see on the right the hosing for the Waterfilter. There are no screws.

    • The Botton above the lowest drawer has a heating foil. Unscrew on the back a PH2 Head screw. Also is a PH2 in front left at the Filter's place. Now carefully lift the Bottom. Take out the Styroporfoam-Element. Then open the Plasticbag which contains the Connector for the Heating. You should cut-off the AC-Mains before unplugging this Connector.

    • Now you can remove the Heating; Top of the Bottom.

    • Open the shorter PH2 Screw to release the LED-Light on the Bottom. That's necessary because with the wires at it you could not pull out the chassis of the Bottom.

    • Now you can pull out the Chassis of the lower Bottom, use a Plastictool for the Clipse. Pull off the holder of the Waterfilter.

    • Here you have the a picture of the Filterholder. The Towel soaks the water

    • The Inputhose has 8 mm. The Output has 6,35 mm (1/4"). Lay a small Towel under the Holder.

    • Pull off the hoses. Some Water could come out. Mark the tubes with red and blue tape. So it will be easier to reasemle if a warrranty-check could occur.

    • Now you need some plug couplings. Adapter from 6,35 mm (thats 1/4 inch) to 8 mm (thats 5/16 inch), Coupling 6,35 to 6,35 and a piece of hose 6,35. Carefully cut the hose nice and clean with a ahrsp cutter. Now easy click these parts together. Now you have a Bypass for the original Filtermount. :)

    • Here is a detail picture of the inlet and the outlet.

    • Now put it all together, don't forget the PH2 Screws and you are done.

    • Now you can mount an extren Waterfilter.

    • The first water will be black from the coal. Don't drink it. Also there is now a lots of air in the hose, so the water will flow unregular and cause problems and weird sounds. Give it some time, the problems will solve. :)

    • This is an Saw-Cut off the external Filter i've bought. You see the same adsorbing coal like in an original Filter.

    • It costs about 10 Bucks. The Original costs about 80 Bucks. Two Filters are needed every year. So this was a good Decision. Enjoy your clean Water. :)

    • Sorry for my bad english writing. I hope the pictures may help someone.

    Where can I find condensation water inlet in the refrigerator?? Thanks

hello

in order to bypass the original filter, it need as 1/4 inch coupler? or asking differently,- Panasonic works with 1/4 inch hoses?

roli - Ответить

Hello,

the hose from outside has 1/4 inch diameter, that's 6,35 mm. Right. :)

But inside, where the original bottle-filter is connected, the inlet hose has 5/16 inch (ca 8 mm) and the outlet hose has 1/4 inch.

In STEP 6 picture 2 is shown the different diameters. The second grey coupler is thicker, thats an adapter from 1/4 inch to 5/16 inch. I've made a new picture for you in STEP 7.

Friendly greets. :)

I don’t suppose in your endevours you spotted the condensation drain hole at all did you? I have this fridge and it’s currently filling with water under the very bottom shelf (normally a sign that the drain hole is blocked). I can’t for hte life of me find the drain to unblock it.

I have the same problem! Did you find the hole of the frigging fridge? I do not want to remove parts because I have not idea what to do...

Sonia Gómez -

The condensation hole is just above the water tank, at the bottom of the fridge. You need to remove the back panel to gain access. It is the most elusive drain hole ever designed.

HI Schwarzstein, I have a leak of water under the water tank but I can’t locate where the water comes from. How do I remove the water tank of my Panasonic NRB53VW1WE to check if there’s a hole inside of it? I tried to turn off the tap that supplies water to the refrigerator for a month, but the water leak is always there. Thank you!
