how do i reset the filter light on my refrigerator msd278ge


Hello,

Simply press and hold the dispenser lock and auto light buttons on the dispenser (at the same time) for four (4) seconds until the filter status indicator begins to flash, then release the buttons. On some Amana refrigerators, you need to press the dispenser lock and water buttons for four (4) seconds until the filter status indicator begins to flash, then release the buttons.
Also note that

  • Remove the old water filter from your refrigerator by turning the handle counterclockwise and pulling it out of the filter holder. The filter is located in the upper right corner of the refrigerator.
  • Step 2Slide the replacement filter into the filter holder and turn it clockwise.
  • Step 3Press and hold the "Reset Filter" button until the indicator lights go off if your model refrigerator has a "Reset Filter" button on the control panel.
  • Step 4Hold the "Lock" and "Light" buttons on the control panel until the filter indicator lights turn off if your model refrigerator does not have a "Reset Filter" button. For models that do not have a "Light" button, press and hold the "Lock" and "Water" buttons.
  • Good luck......

    Trying to reset filer light after changing filter-locked up


    Here is a link to the manual for your unit. Copy paste into your browser.

    http://shop.amana.com/assets/pdfs/literature/12591321.PDF

    Page 20 shows how to unlock the dispenser and reset the filter light and I have pasted them here.

    There are products at Lowes or Home Depot near the appliance for odor removal, I like to put a bowl of cotton balls on a couple of shelves, soak the cotton in vanilla once a day. The odors will be gone in a couple of days.

    DISPENSER LOCK
    (SELECT MODELS)
    This feature prevents ice or water from
    being dispensed.
    To lock dispenser:
    ➢ Press and hold DISPENSER LOCK
    button for 3 seconds. A green
    indicator light above button confirms
    dispenser is locked.
    To unlock dispenser:
    ➢ Hold DISPENSER LOCK button for 3
    seconds. Green indicator light above
    button will go out.


    Filter reset

    The filter status indicator light
    serves as a reminder to replace the
    water filter. A green light indicates that
    the filter is in good condition. A red light
    indicates the filter should be changed.
    Once light turns red, it will remain red
    until function is reset.
    To reset indicator:
    ➢ Press and hold both DISPENSER
    LOCK and WATER buttons
    simultaneously for 4 seconds. The
    green filter status indicator light will
    flash 3 times when the function has
    successfully reset.
