Reverse Osmosis System leaking water

I have a Kenmore Elite Reverse Osmosis System Model No. 625.385560. When the Osmosis sytem is filling up water is linking just below the six screws, once the water system stops filling up the leaking stops.

What could be causing this? Is there a gasket under the six screws or a hose off? What should I look for or do I have to buy a new system?

Water treatment system for the home offer many benefits. I see your unit is leaking. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you might check the two previous expert posts below to see if one looks like the same issue. I also added the Sears Home Services link if you decide you would like to schedule a technician to diagnose and make repairs.

Thank you for your question on why the automatic shut off valve is leaking during fill.

To figure out which part is the problem you will need to depressurize the system and drain the tank with the faucet.

Then remove the 6 screws on the top of the automatic shut off valve cover and check the cover for any cracks.

If you do not see any then look at the whit plastic diaphragm for any cracks or creases in the material.

I would recommend replacing the PLUNGER & SPACER RING KIT and the DIAPHRAGM KIT.

If the cover has a crack in it then you will also need the cover.

7250876 DIAPHRAGM KT 1 5.99 5.99 625385560 ECODN

You can order these parts from:
