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.

Why my refrigerator is leaking water from the top where the water filter is located?


Shut off water supply valve. Relieve water pressure by dispensing water. Unscrew water filter. Examine to see if the gasket is damaged or if filter was loose and just needed tightening. Or simply replace water filter with the correct water filter that your GE refrigerator calls for.

After i change the water filter de button of water still red


The water filter status light, located at the top of the refrigerator

compartment, will help you know when to change your water

filter cartridge.

Style 1 - Standard status light (on some models)

When the water filter status light changes from green to yellow,

this tells you that it is almost time to change the water filter

cartridge (90% of the filter life has been used). It is recommended

that you replace the base grille water filter cartridge when the

water filter indicator light changes to red OR water flow to your

water dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably. See

"Changing theWater Filter Cartridge" later in this section.

After changing the water filter cartridge, reset the water filter

status light by pressing the light switch 5 times within
10 seconds. The water filter status light will change from red to
green when the system is reset.

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.

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.

steve_con_8.jpg

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.

Want to know when and how to replace water filter on a ge side by side refrig


Hello,

The water filter status light or indicator, present on some models, will help you know when to change your water filter. The light, or indicator, is located either on the temperature control panel in the refrigerator compartment or on the dispenser control panel on the freezer door.

The indicator will be one of two styles.

If the indicator is a light or series of lights, the light will change from green to yellow. This tells you that it is almost time to change the 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.
If the indicator resembles a stack of bars, the bar height will decrease and the status display will change from "Good" to "Order." This tells you that it is almost time to change the filter. Replace the water filter cartridge when the water filter status display changes to "Replace" or when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases.
If a filter status light/indicator is not present, the filter should be changed at least once every 6 months. Your filter may need to be replaced more frequently depending on your usage and water quality.

If the water flow to the water dispenser or ice maker noticeably decreases before 6 months have passed, you may need to replace the water filter cartridge more often. Decreased water flow is a sign that the filter is clogged and needs to be replaced.

If the filter is clogged and you are not able to immediately replace it, remove the filter so the water system is in bypass mode. With the filter removed, the water system will continue to operate, bypassing the filter, and the clogged filter will not cause slow water dispensing or low ice production. However, in order to have filtered water, you will need to install a new filter.


The filter status display will help you know when to change your
water filter. When the display reads 10%, order a new filter. It is
recommended that you replace the filter when the display reads 10% OR when water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases.

The filter should be replaced at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and usage.

Step 2
Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille.

Step 3
Pull the filter straight out.

Step 4

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.

Step 5
Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and
turn the cap until it snaps into place.

Step 6
Remove the protective covers from the O-rings. Be sure the O-rings are still in place after the covers are removed.

Step 7
Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop back out when the filter is fully engaged.

Step 8
Flush the water system. Use a sturdy cup or glass. Depress and hold the
water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat this process until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever. Hold down for 5 seconds and then release for 5 seconds. Do this on/off process for about 2 minutes. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing

Hope this helpout in changing the water filter......

How to replace the filter


Hello,

Take the new water filter out of the box and remove the two red shipping caps on the end of the filter.
The water filter is located on the front panel down near the floor.
Push the release button located just to the left of the water filter grille cap, this will release the filter.
Remove the grille cap from the filter by twisting it counterclockwise.
Reinstall the grille cap on the new water filter.
Insert the new water filter in the refrigerator making sure the words on the filter are the correct side up.
Push the water filter in until it clicks in place.
Flush Water After Installing New Filter
Be sure you flush out the water from the new filter after you replace it! Many readers are having trouble with airlocks because they are skipping this important step. Kenmore recommends you run the water out of the water and ice maker for a few minutes to flush out the new filter. This also helps remove air bubbles from the system. If you don’t do this it’s possible that the water dispenser may not work properly due to an air lock.

This particular water filter claims to reduce:
Cysts and turbidity – linked to gastrointestinal problems
Lead
Chlorine – taste and odor for better tasting water
Sediment – for clearer water
o-Dichlorobenzene – linked to risk of liver, kidney, or circulatory system problems
Benzene – linked to increase risk of cancer and anemia.
Note continue changing the filter on a regular basis.
Hope this helpout....

Using without water filter


The effort it would take to eliminate filter would be too much. Just leave filter in place. If new house filter is working right you should never have to replace fridge filter and your water will be double-filtered :)
