Filter light has turned red

It has been like this for almost a year now, but I need to replace the filter as I have had the fridge for three years now and never replaced anything, which is good, but I think it is about time to replace the filter. The problem is I do not know where the filter is located and how to replace it. Can anyone help?

Refrigerator - Water Filter Indicator Light Will Not Shut Off After you change the filter the RESET WATER FILTER must be pressed and held until the red light goes off.

Note: If you do not hold the pad in, the light will stay on. Also, if you hold the pad in for a long period of time, the light will go off and then come back on.

If this does not turn the light off, having it checked by a service technician is recommended
Here is a list of refrigerator manufacturers and how to reset the filter change indicator light:
Amana- Press and hold the Auto and Dispenser Lock buttons until the water filter status indicator light flashes.
Frigidaire- Press and Hold the Reset Button Until the Indicator Light Flashes.
GE General Electric- Press and Hold the Reset Button for around 8 Seconds.
HotPoint- Press and Hold the Reset Button for around 8 Seconds.
Jenn-Air- Press and Hold The Water and Lock Buttons until the Water Filter light flashes.
Kitchen Aid- Press and Release the Light Button 5 times Quickly.
Maytag- Press and Hold The Light and Lock Buttons until the Water Filter light flashes.
Samsung- Press and Hold the Ice Type and Child Lock Buttons at the same time for 3 seconds.
Whirlpool- Press and Release the Light Button 5 times Quickly.

SRS580DW Water filter indicator red light is on. Where in the fridge do I find it to take it out to replace pleace?


Resetting the water filter indicator light can also be found in the user manual for your SRS580DW Refrigerator User Manual page 8 The water filter indicator initially lights up green. Press the ICE TIMER and ICE MODE buttons at the same time for about three seconds to reset the water filter installation date. • The green light changes to orange after five months to indicate that you should soon change the water filter. It changes to red after an additional one month (six months after the water filter was changed or installed) to indicate that you must change the water filter. • If you wish to turn off the filter indicator lamp or the filter is not connected, press the ice timer & ice mode button simultaneously for 5 seconds. If you wish to turn on the filter indicator lamp again, press the ice timer & ice mode button simultaneously for 3 seconds.

How do I change the water filter


Removing and replacing a water filter - upper right hand corner location

Filters situated in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator compartment of Maytag-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  • These eight inch long filters are housed in their own compartment. The base of the compartment can be released by pushing in on the release clip found at the end of the housing unit. Allow the base of the housing compartment to hang down while you remove and replace your filter.


  • Twist the spent filter to the left (counter-clockwise) and gently pull on it to remove it. There is an automatic water shut off to keep leaks and spills to a minimum.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove the plastic wrap, and peel off the aluminum topping. Insert the new filter into the housing unit. Twist the filter to the right (clockwise) until it clicks into place. Replace the base of the filter housing by cliping it back in place.


  • Condition the filter by dispensing several glasses of water through your refrigerator. This ensures that all fine carbon particles have been removed.


  • Check the filter and the inside of the refrigerator for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and install the filter again.


  • Finally, reset the 'change filter' indicator light, if your refrigerator has one, at the front of your refrigerator. The procedure for resetting the change filter indicator light can vary from fridge to fridge. Typically, the indicator light can be reset by holding down on the 'lock' button and the 'water' button simultaneously for three seconds. Sometimes, it is the 'lock' and the 'light' button you need to press down on simultaneously for three seconds in order to reset the filter indicator light.


Removing and replacing a water filter - center ceiling location

Filters situated in the center ceiling of the refrigerator compartment of Maytag-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  • Turn the filter a quarter turn to the left, in a counter-clockwise motion. The 'unlocked' symbol on the filter will be lined up with the indicator line that is molded into the refrigerator just above the filter. Allow the ears of the cartridge to disengage from the filter holder.


  • Gently pull down on the filter, being careful to not spill any water still in the filter. Discard the used filter.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove and discard the red plastic cap found on the top of the new filter.


  • Apply the appropriate month sticker to the filter to remind your self to remove and replace the filter in six months' time.


  • Insert the new filter into the filter opening. Line the 'unlock' symbol on the filter up with the indicator line that is molded into the refrigerator above the filter. Turn the filter a quarter turn to the right, in a clockwise motion. You will be able to feel the filter stop when it is all the way in, and the 'locked' symbol on the filter will now be lined up with the indicator line above the filter.


  • Close the refrigerator door and dispense several glasses of water through the water dispenser in the door in order to purge the new filter of any impurities. Open the refrigerator door again and check for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and replace the new filter again.


  • Finally, reset the 'change filter' indicator light, if your refrigerator has one, at the front of your refrigerator. The procedure for resetting the change filter indicator light can vary from fridge to fridge. Typically, the indicator light can be reset by holding down on the 'lock' button and the 'water' button simultaneously for three seconds. Sometimes, it is the 'lock' and the 'light' button you need to press down on simultaneously for three seconds in order to reset the filter indicator light.

There is a red icon illuminated on the section for water and ice, does it mean the filter needs replacing?


Red light means that it's been ~ 6 months since the filter was replaced/reset. Owned this fridge for a couple of years and we haven't had issues waiting extra month or so to replace the filter....especially since they are $35.

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 question


WOW! I'd say that the filter is definately due for replacement.

The manufacturer recommends the filter be changed every 6-8 months, as with ice and water dispensers in the door, folks tend to use the chilled water and ice more often, hence you get alot of gallons of water thru the fridge each month.

Once you replace the filter, you'll need to flush out the lines, (see the instructions with the new filter) to get rid of any loose carbon in the filter element, but once you done this, you should also notice better water flow and better tasting water and ice cubes too.

I tend to change my ice/water filter on my fridge every year when I change my smoke detector batteries. That way, I don't forget, sort of like my personal "once-a-year" house task list to change batteries, filters, resetting timers, etc., etc.

It's a good idea to change these smaller filters at a minimum of once a year, as they are no longer providing the filtration you want, and can actually be letting some of the contaminents fow out and into your water and cubes.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

The red light is blinking on the front of fridge this means what?


SOUNDS LIKE THE WATER FILTER NEEDS TO BE REPLACED WHICH SHOULD BE ON THE INSIDE OF THE REFRIGERATOR NEAR THE BACK AND AFTER THAT YOU MUST HOLD THE FILTER BUTTON FOR THREE TO FIVE SECONDS TO RESET THE FILTER REMINDER.

New water filter replaced follower instructions in book Orang lig


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.
