Water filter light won't reset itself

I've replaced the filter.  The water is flowing freely, so I'm pretty sure I've replaced correctly.  But the light stays red (indicating the filter needs replacing)  what must I do to make it go back to green?

The water dispenser on the door stopped flowing in mid stream. A day later, still no water. Took out the filter and water streamed just fine. Got new filter put in, and again no water. Took it out and...


Sounds like a "solonoid" is not functioning, either a wire is loose, the switch behind the the "push" device is bad, the "push" device is jammed, or the solenoid valve is bad.
First Try moving the "push" in different directions, including pressing pretty hard.
If you hear a "click" it's probably the solenoid valve. The are simple to fix, buy you will probably need a set of instructions to replace it. Look on line under your Refrigerators manufacturer for the part and instructions......Maake SURE the unit is unplugged before touching wires!
Hope this helps.....

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.

My neff is not giving any water, I have changed new filter still light shows fix filter?


If the indicator is a light or series of lights, the light will change from green to yellow. This tells you this it is almost time to change your 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.
Hence, it's advised to check your water flow (pressure) is perfect. If your water flow is normal the indicator display will automatically be gone and also you will get water also. Please also check any tints orkinks in water hose, if it's correct it. Thanks, Helpful?

Replaced the water filter. the refrigerator is making ice but not dispensing water


Is there any packaging from the new water filter restricting the flow. Check for anything blocking the water flow near where you replace the filter and check for correct installation. If this problem was the reason you replace the filter check the switch that dispenses the water. Make sure it isn't "iced up".

New water filter, very slow water dispensing


you have to reset the pressure stabilization feature in the water filter circuit before it will deliver a continuous flow of water . sometimes the directions are on the filter itself . if not , you'll have to look it up in your owner's manual or perhaps go online to obtain the information .

Water dispenser has stopped giving water. Have


HI. The first check will be to inspect the water filter(if equipped). When your filter device reaches its filtering limit, it will stop allowing the water to flow freely, thus, obstructing the normal flow. Replacing the filter will correct this issue, if the device is past its operating status. There should be an install date on the filter, itself. Filter must be changed out every 10 months. Ok, if the filter is not an issue, kindly, move on to the line inspection. Make sure none of the internal lines are frozen. If the lines have frozen over, this will be the issue.

Now. If all is well with the lines, and there are no obstructions, this will lead to a failed water valve assembly.

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush, or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

No flow after filter change.


G E waterfilters , can be bad when new (all , not just G E ). Put your old one back in , if water flow was fine , and you replaced just because the light came on . Or , use the plastic bypass piece , which came with the refrig , when new . The replace light , works off time and/or usage times only . If you have good water flow and the cubes are normal size , don't change the filter when the light comes on , just reset the light . All "filter" companies , have found the way to sell more filters , the light on dispensors .

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.

Slow water flow


dadcanfix. There are two possibilities here. One could be the water valve itself, clogged or not seating or opening properly. The second would be the water tank on the refrigerator side, partially frozen. I believe they have a kit now with coiled tubing that replaces that tank because of the trouble they had with it. Remove the refer drawers and take a hair dryer and go over the tank lightly. See if that improves the water flow. Catriver..post back.
