You have to reset the light by pressing and holding the touch pad for 3-5 seconds. It doesn't reset on its own when you replace the filter

Where can I purchase replacement water filters for LG Refrigerator Model RS2630SH as soon as possible? I assume actually replacing the filter is self-explanatory? Thanks. Jane


Hi Jane and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. Since you did not mention a geographic location I am assmuing somewhere USA. For some reason the model is crossing to a Samsung Refrigerator and not an LG one. I am using RS2630SH as the model number and keep getting Samsung results.

Searching Samsung there is one filter here:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/subcategories/6117/4447/Samsung

LG there are 3 filters here:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/subcategories/6054/4447/LG

Here is something to think about.... Once you do install a new internal filter. I recommend installing an external in line filter. The are cheaper... and will make the internal filter last 5 - 6 times longer.

Below are instructions to reset water filter light. Thanks, Sea Breeze
If helpful please rate.

Reset Filter (select models)

When a water filter has been installed in the

refrigerator, the yellow Order light will illuminate when

90 percent of the volume of water for which the filter is

rated has passed through the filter OR 11 months have

elapsed since the filter has been installed.

The red Replace light will illuminate when the rated

volume of water has passed through the filter OR 12

months have elapsed since the filter was installed. A

new filter should be installed immediately when the

Replace light is illuminated.

After replacing the filter, press and hold the Reset

Filter pad for three seconds. The Order and Replace

lights will go off.

Vacation Mode

The Vacation Mode feature causes the freezer

to defrost less frequently, conserving energy. The

Vacation Mode indicator light will illuminate when the

feature is activated. To deactivate, press the Vacation

Mode pad again OR open either door. The indicator

light will go off.

Where is the water filter located and how do i replace it.


The water filter is located in the fresh food or fridge side of the appliance, at the rear - in the upper right hand corner.

To change the filter, open the fridge door, clear the top shelf and grasp the filter. All that is needed is to turn the filter to the left about a 1/4 turn for it to drop down. A few drops of water may spill onto the shelf. To install a replacement, remove the protective cover (shown as a red cap above), and position under opening for filter. Gently push upward while turning the filter to the right. The filter will pop in, and as you turn about 1/4 of the way around, it will be drawn up a small amount until seated. At this point it will no longer turn any further.

More info about the filter is below (taken from the manual).

The water "Filter Indicator" light

• "Filter Indicator" light lets you know when it is time to change your water filter cartridge. The light
will change from green to orange. This tells you that it is almost time to change the current cartridge.
It is recommended that you replace the cartridge when the light changes to red. (see "Install the water filter" section for more information)
• If you install water filter, throw away the first six glassfulls of water filter, or until water flows clearly to flush impurities in the water supply system.


Using the dispenser without the water filter

• You can not use the water and ice dispenser without a water filter cartridge because the water line
blocks at water supply.
Ordering replacement filters
• To order more water filter cartridges, call 1-800-SAMSUNG and ask for accessory Part # DA29-
00003A or contact your authorized Samsung dealer.

Want to know when and how to replace water filter on a ge side by side refrig


Hello,

The water filter status light or indicator, present on some models, will help you know when to change your water filter. The light, or indicator, is located either on the temperature control panel in the refrigerator compartment or on the dispenser control panel on the freezer door.

The indicator will be one of two styles.

If the indicator is a light or series of lights, the light will change from green to yellow. This tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. It is recommended that you replace the filter when the status light changes to red or when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases.
If the indicator resembles a stack of bars, the bar height will decrease and the status display will change from "Good" to "Order." This tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. Replace the water filter cartridge when the water filter status display changes to "Replace" or when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases.
If a filter status light/indicator is not present, the filter should be changed at least once every 6 months. Your filter may need to be replaced more frequently depending on your usage and water quality.

If the water flow to the water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases before 6 months have passed, you may need to replace the water filter cartridge more often. Decreased water flow is a sign that the filter is clogged and needs to be replaced.

If the filter is clogged and you are not able to immediately replace it, remove the filter so the water system is in bypass mode. With the filter removed, the water system will continue to operate, bypassing the filter, and the clogged filter will not cause slow water dispensing or low ice production. However, in order to have filtered water, you will need to install a new filter.


The filter status display will help you know when to change your
water filter. When the display reads 10%, order a new filter. It is
recommended that you replace the filter when the display reads 10% OR when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases.

The filter should be replaced at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and usage.

Step 2
Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille.

Step 3
Pull the filter straight out.

Step 4

Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove it from the filter. IMPORTANT: Do not discard the cap. It is part of your refrigerator. Keep the cap to use with the replacement filter.

Step 5
Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and
turn the cap until it snaps into place.

Step 6
Remove the protective covers from the O-rings. Be sure the O-rings are still in place after the covers are removed.

Step 7
Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop back out when the filter is fully engaged.

Step 8
Flush the water system. Use a sturdy cup or glass. Depress and hold the
water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat this process until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever. Hold down for 5 seconds and then release for 5 seconds. Do this on/off process for about 2 minutes. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing

Hope this helpout in changing the water filter......

How do u replace water filter on samsung refrigerator side by side model number rs2630sh


The water filter in the extra space behind the vegetable Bin.

1) As shown, the fixed cap separates from the refrigerator by rotating
it counterclockwise.
Remove the water filter from the box and put a month indicator
sticker on the filter as shown on the next page.
2) The water filter should be replaced every six months, so if the filter
was installed in March (for example), put on the "SEP" sticker
to remind you to change the filter.
3) Remove the protective cap, then position and insert the
filter as shown.
4) Slowly turn the water filter clockwise 90º to align
the indication mark on the cover, locking the filter in position.

Or go here bottom of page 24 top of 25.

The red warning light has to be reset manually - by pressing the Ice Type and Child Lock buttons together for 5 seconds. As for the taste, check the flow direction is correct on the filter and run a few litres of water off.
