Re: Filter light - Samsung RS21DNS

I would try changing filter and see if that fixes the light problem... How long has it been since it was changed?

I've changed the water filter on my samsung RS7667FHCB and the red filter is still showing, is there something you need to do to reset it?

Do you mean the RS7667FHCBC? To reset the water filter schedule indicator, press and hold the Ice Type button (bottom center of the touch panel) for 3+ seconds. This is described on page 24 and on page 33 of the user manual. If the indicator doesn't respond, you may need to change the position of your finger so that you press on the contact point of the touch pad. Sometimes, it takes a few tries to get a response from the press and hold action. The manual for this Samsung refrigerator is available from the support page: . Select the Downloads & Manuals tab then scroll down. Expand the section with the View More link. The current direct link to the User Manual is .

I hope this helps.

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.

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.

The warning light to reset filter came on. I've

Resetting your Refrigerator filter indicator light after changing your water filter Some people are not aware that after you change your refrigerator water filter, there are two more steps that should be taken to complete the water filter change process.
Step 1:
Reset your water filter indicator light - Most new refrigerators come equiped with an indicator light that notifies you when it is time to change your water filter. This light does not automatically reset when you change your water filter. Here is a list of refrigerator manufacturers and how to reset the indicator light.
Amana Refrigerators - Press and hold the Auto and Dispenser Lock buttons until the water filter status indicator light flashes.
Frigidaire Refrigerators - Press and Hold the Reset Button Until the Indicator Light Flashes.
GE General Electric Refrigerators - Press and Hold the Reset Button for around 8 Seconds.
HotPoint Refrigerators - Press and Hold the Reset Button for around 8 Seconds.
Jenn-Air Refrigerators - Press and Hold The Light and Lock Buttons until the Water Filter light flashes.
Kitchen Aid Refrigerators - Press and Release the Light Button 5 times Quickly.
Maytag Refrigerators - Press and Hold The Light and Lock Buttons until the Water Filter light flashes.
Samsung Refrigerators - Press and Hold the Ice Type and Child Lock Buttons at the same time for 3 seconds.
Whirlpool Refrigerators - Press and Release the Light Button 5 times Quickly.
Step 2:
Flush a couple of gallons of water through your new filter. Since most refrigerator water filters are made of carbon, some carbon residue is present in the first gallon or two of water. This will leave a bitter taste and residue in your water. If you continue to have these problems after flushing a couple of gallons through the filter, it is possible that you have a defective water filter.
Once these two steps are completed, you are all set to enjoy great tasting ice and water through your refrigerator. If you don't see your manufacturer listed or the insructions don't work for your model please post a comment with your make and model number so that we can provide exact instructions for your model.

Whirlpool a class freezer

Red Light : Alarm high temperature.
Amber Light : Fast freeze function (ie ignores thermostat and keeps unit freezing all the time).
Green light: mains power.

If you have lost temperature on a freezer it is usually a major fault either the compressor has failed or you have lost charge (possibly the start relay). If you are able to get to the rear of the unit and check the compressor, if it is hot then it is more likely a major fault. A good fridge guy can normally tell the problem within a short time of inspecting the unit. Sorry to not sound hopeful. Good luck.

CPCA240FFK orange (super) light keeps flashing

If you have the owners manual it should say what that means but I'll see if I can find an operation manual or tech manual online and get back to you.
