Question about Refrigerators
I have installed under-sink water filter and now need no filter in refrigerator ($40/months every 6 months makes no sense).
Is there a way to do that so the light is not blinking on refrigerator and the filter is not required to be replace?
From the Samsung Online FAQ for my RF266AASH
Can I Use the Water Dispenser Without a Water Filter? The water and ice dispensers will work without an AquaPure water filter installed. The water filter housings are designed as rotary valves that allow the water to bypass the water filter whenever there is no filter or the filter is not in the lock position.
Models designed for use with the AquaPure water filter are shipped with a cap in place to cover the opening and keep it free of debris prior to the installation of the water filter. It is not necessary to have this cap in place for the unit to bypass the water nor is it intended to plug the housing to prevent leaks.
Note: This does not apply to the Quatro Convertible models. The filter must be installed on this model.

The Samsung refrigerator filter is costly. The way to "bypass" it to NOT bypass it, I will explain: The DA29-00012A filter holder is built into the fridge, not worth the trouble to bypass it there. The way to do it is the followiing: Take a used filter, carefully cut it open by the seam where it was glued together. Empty out the contents, clean it internally, and glue it back together. You can use PVC pipe glue for that as it melts the case together. A thin piece of PVC material glued over the re- glued seam will insure water tightness. Now your light will be normal and use a quality external filter as required. You will never have to replace that filter again. External filters last 1-2 years at much lower cost.
