Question about Refrigerators
I have just replaced my water filter in accordance with the owners manual after the 'Filter' warning appeared on my fridge door. However, once replaced, the warning is still active and now , 2 weeks later, the automatic shut off has activated so that we cannot get any water from the fridge.
The manual does not tell me how to reset the function following filter replacement and Hoover will only send an engineer to look at it and apply minimum call out charge. Can you help?
Generally all you need to do is push and hold the filter reset button in for 3 to 5 seconds to reset it. However, even with the filter light on, it shouldn't stop the water flow as most of the time on most brands it is just an "idiot light" that is on either a timer based on number of days or on number of minutes the water has flowed through the water valve

Try disconnecting the fridge from the wall. Wait 30 seconds and plug it back in. This MAY reeset the system.

Water Filter Status Light (on some models)
The water filter status light will help you know when to change
your water filter. When the water filter status display changes from
"GOOD" to "ORDER," this tells you that it is almost time to
change the water filter cartridge. Replace the water filter cartridge
when the water filter status display changes to "REPLACE." If
water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases
noticeably, change the filter sooner. The filter should be replaced
at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and
After changing the water filter, reset the status light by pressing
and holding the FILTER button for 3 seconds. The status light will
change from "REPLACE" to "GOOD" when the system is reset.
Changing the Water Filter
1. Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille.
2. Pull the filter straight out.
3. 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.
4. Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and
turn the cap until it snaps into place.
NOTE: You can run the dispenser without a filter. Your water
will not be filtered. Simply insert the cap all of the way into the
base grille and rotate the cap until it is firmly in place.
5. Remove the covers from the O-rings. Be sure the O-rings are
still in place after the covers are removed.
6. Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop
back out when the filter is fully engaged.
7. Flush the water system. See "Water and Ice Dispensers."
Water Filter Status Light:
The water filter status light will help you know when to change your water filter.
When the dispenser control panel's water filter status display changes to "ORDER," this tells
you that it is almost time to change the water filter cartridge.
Replace the water filter cartridge when the water filter status display changes to "REPLACE."
The filter should be replaced at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and usage.
NOTE: If water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably, change the
filter sooner. After changing the water filter, reset the status light.
Pressing and holding RESET FILTER starts the 3 seconds countdown. Using the dispenser
cancels the countdown AND no dispensing is permitted. The number '3' blinks 3 times and the
'invalid' tone sounds 3 times and user has to release both the pad and the button and press
the button again to start it over
After 3 seconds, the BLUE WATER BARS in the Icon flash and an audible tone sounds 3
times. When the system is reset, the "ORDER" and "REPLACE" icons will disappear from the
display screen. See figure 16.
Note: Users can reset the filter status at any stage.
