Re: New water filter replaced follower instructions in...
There is no sensor that knows you replaced it. Probably have to hold down a button or two to reset light on dispenser area; read your manual for directions or find it on-line from the mfr website if you don't have it. I do not know what key sequence.

How To Remove The Water Filter In The French Door Refrigerator French... Here is the best solution associated answer for your product per the manufacturer. Follow the instructions closely. I have been down your road. Turn the water off to the refrigerator and let it rest. Run both the water maker and the ice machine briefly. Take the time to copy the instructions. It is worth the procedure. Fare well dear Lady.
Purge the system once the new filter is installed. Fill a
large glass with water from the dispenser and empty the water into a
sink. Continue filling and emptying the glass until the water runs
without air burps and the water is clear.
Locate the "Lock" and "Light " button on the dispenser. Older Maytag refrigerators have a "Lock" and "Water" button.
Press the "Lock" and "Light button with your fingers and hold them in for four seconds.
Release the buttons when the indicator light begins to blink.
If the last thing that you did "replacing the filter" seemed to cause the situation I would first try switching back to the old filter and seeing if it starts to work fine again then you know that that was the problem. If you already got rid of the filter then you may want to get another one and see if that clears things up. New filter is still way cheeper then a service call.
Removing and replacing a water filter - base grill location
Filters situated in the base grill (below the freezer compartment) of Whirlpool-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these two steps:
Grasp the filter's end and make a one-quarter turn to the left.
Pull the filter straight out.
To replace with a new filter, repeat these two steps in the opposite order, making sure to first remove the red cap from the filter. Proceed by pushing the filter straight into the slot, and then giving it a one quarter turn to the right.
Note: Replacing this type of filter is quick - there is no need to unplug your refrigerator when replacing it. Also, this filter should be replaced every six months.
When you buy the new filter, it usually comes with an instruction sheet.
How long has it been since you replaced the filter in the waterline, or in the refrigerator section waterline? This filter is to be replaced usually every six months. This filter is usually a canister about the size of a car oil filter and is usually located in the upper right side of the fridge. May be hidden by a plastic shield over the light. Replacing this filter should eliminate your problem. Remember to read the instructions that come with the new filter as to filling it with water before installing or not and the purge time or amount before using it for drinking, to flush any particulate out of the new filter. Usually 60 seconds of running water from door in to a glass and dumping that water...or run water into a glass til it dispenses clear water. Remember to turn off the water to the fridge and have a towel handy when replacing the filter. Some refrigerators have a function where by when you unscrew the old filter it automatically shuts off the water, but I would not trust that to actually work...Ha!
I believe your new Jen-Air has an old model number placed above your post. If you had a newer model nuber I could see if changes were made to the solution. The ods are no changes. I it possible you may have missed removal of te flilter plug? It also is your first time and to press the 2 buttons at same time for 8 to 10 seconds may be a little confusing. I bet after this time you will have this down to an art! here is what I could find without the vorrect model number if that is what happened or not.Jenn-Air Press and hold the light and lock buttons until the change filter light flashes. It is very easy to reset your filter indicator light on your Maytag refrigerator. Simply press and hold the light and lock buttons, on the dispenser, for about three (3) seconds, until the change filter light blinks. Jenn-Air Refrigerators - Press and Hold The Light and Lock Buttons until the filter light flashes (usually 5-10 seconds).
There is no link between the filter and the light, that light runs off of a timer. Take the filter back out and look at the housing that the filter goes into, some models have a little button that gets pushed in by the filter, it is a mechanical stop to prevent water flow with no filter in place. Do you hear a clicking noise when you attempt to get water out of the unit?
Hi: I don't know if you have the manual, but you have to hold down the lock button down for several seconds to release it. That how it works. I hope this helps and you don't need service. As a last resort unplug the fridge for an hour ( don't open it in the interim) then plug it back in and see if it resets. I hope this helps, Jeff
