Reset after water filter replacement

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.

Our fridge is beeping every time we open it


Check the owner's manual or Google for one. Check to see the interval in which you should be replacing the water filter. Water Filters can usually be purchased where you purchased your fridge or a big box hardware store for around $30-$40. In most cases, you should be able to reset the water filter alarm to clear the beep w/o replacing the filter.

THe filter light will not go out on our Samsung RF266.


If memory serves, you put your finger on & hold the filter warning indicator for 3+ seconds and that will reset it after the filter is replaced. I've temporarily misplaced my owner's manual to confirm for certain.

Change the water filter


I believe that this is an automatic warning to get you to replace the inline water filter located in the back of the refrigerator side up near the top. This sells water filters at 30+ dollars a pop. There is a procedure in your manual to replace the filter, but you could just reset the warning by holding the "filter reset button" for 3 seconds. that button is on the front door of the machine.

I've got a side by side Whirlpool refridgerator. The Water Filter status light is not indicating. What could be the problem and solution?


There are several pages that explain dispenser programming. This is on page 10 of the owners manual.

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

usage.

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.

Details:

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.

How to turn off red light if ice filter is over


First you need to replace your water filter. After you have done that, you will need to reset the water filter indicator light. Some fridges have a reset button, other fridges have a reset "procedure", often times pressing two buttons simultaneously. You didnt give me a brand or model number, so i cannot help you with how, other than to read your owners manual.

Water filter


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.
