Hi: I don't know if you have the manual, but you have to hold down the lock button down for several seconds to release it. That how it works. I hope this helps and you don't need service. As a last resort unplug the fridge for an hour ( don't open it in the interim) then plug it back in and see if it resets. I hope this helps, Jeff

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

How do i reset the filter light on my refrigerator msd278ge


Hello,

Simply press and hold the dispenser lock and auto light buttons on the dispenser (at the same time) for four (4) seconds until the filter status indicator begins to flash, then release the buttons. On some Amana refrigerators, you need to press the dispenser lock and water buttons for four (4) seconds until the filter status indicator begins to flash, then release the buttons.
Also note that

  • Remove the old water filter from your refrigerator by turning the handle counterclockwise and pulling it out of the filter holder. The filter is located in the upper right corner of the refrigerator.
  • Step 2Slide the replacement filter into the filter holder and turn it clockwise.
  • Step 3Press and hold the "Reset Filter" button until the indicator lights go off if your model refrigerator has a "Reset Filter" button on the control panel.
  • Step 4Hold the "Lock" and "Light" buttons on the control panel until the filter indicator lights turn off if your model refrigerator does not have a "Reset Filter" button. For models that do not have a "Light" button, press and hold the "Lock" and "Water" buttons.
  • Good luck......

    Trying to reset filer light after changing filter-locked up


    Here is a link to the manual for your unit. Copy paste into your browser.

    http://shop.amana.com/assets/pdfs/literature/12591321.PDF

    Page 20 shows how to unlock the dispenser and reset the filter light and I have pasted them here.

    There are products at Lowes or Home Depot near the appliance for odor removal, I like to put a bowl of cotton balls on a couple of shelves, soak the cotton in vanilla once a day. The odors will be gone in a couple of days.

    DISPENSER LOCK
    (SELECT MODELS)
    This feature prevents ice or water from
    being dispensed.
    To lock dispenser:
    ➢ Press and hold DISPENSER LOCK
    button for 3 seconds. A green
    indicator light above button confirms
    dispenser is locked.
    To unlock dispenser:
    ➢ Hold DISPENSER LOCK button for 3
    seconds. Green indicator light above
    button will go out.


    Filter reset

    The filter status indicator light
    serves as a reminder to replace the
    water filter. A green light indicates that
    the filter is in good condition. A red light
    indicates the filter should be changed.
    Once light turns red, it will remain red
    until function is reset.
    To reset indicator:
    ➢ Press and hold both DISPENSER
    LOCK and WATER buttons
    simultaneously for 4 seconds. The
    green filter status indicator light will
    flash 3 times when the function has
    successfully reset.

    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.

    No ice or water from dispenser


    Kathryn, make sure you do not have the dispenser locked out. Press and hold the lock button for 3 seconds. If you have a green light above the pad this indicates lock. You are going to have to hold the water lever for a while until all the air in the new filter is purged. Catriver...post back.
