Not sure that was the problem with ours since everything was holding up perfectly for many months before it exploded.
Anyway, after removing the unit to save $100 in shipping, husband went ahead and ordered the replacement filter and housing. In the meantime, I re-convinced him not to re-install it after all, because I was not fond of having a wet ticking time bomb under the TV.
The "genuine parts! beware of imitations!" supplier (WaterPur) will not take the parts back as it has now been more than 14 days. We paid $65 for the replacement filter and housing that we are never going to use. I'll sell both to you, mint condition in the shrink wrap, for $50 including shipping. Interested?
