I have a Maytag Plus Refrigerator and the way to rest the water filter light is to simultaneosly hold down the "Light" and "Lock" pads until the "Change Filter" light blinks (approximately 3 seconds). This will reset the Change filter light for 12 months or for the number of gallon threshold for your filter.

Dear Loanlady

Im not exactly 100% familiar with this make and model of refridgeration unit, but your best bet is to either locate the control panel either on the front door (outside, if your version has this fitted) or on the inside where the filter is installed. There could simply be a reset button, and its just a case of locating this and then pressing and holding the button for a few seconds and releasing it. May be be beneficial to double press the button in rapid motion once you have released, just to make sure that it has reset the system. It is worth noting that certain models manufactured, can often place the control boxes in very strange places, such as in the top-left-hand-side of the fridge bay, and it may be worth while having a look round for this unit.

If this fails, then you can always isolate the entire refrigeration unit from the mains for a few seconds, and then power the entire system backup again, this may reset control unit, just as long as the thing dont have its own internal backup battery to remember settings in the event of a power cut.

If even this fails, then you can always get hold of the service manual from the internet if you go to the manufacturers/ vendors website and look for your product in the service/ support section.

If after all of this, you still have no joy, then trust good old fashioned google to come up with the answer.....just type in your make and model of refridgerator, with the words "user manual" and you should get quite a few results.

Then even if this fails, you can ask me for assistance, and i will find the manual for you, and leave the link to get it here on another page when you ask me for more information. I will gladly help with this for you.

Well I hope that this is enough for you to go on for now, and I wish you all of the best of luck resolving this issue.

I do hope to hear from you soon to find out how you got on.

Yours sincerely

Oz

I have a Maytag Plus Refrigerator, and I just replaced the filter and reset the light by pushing the Lock and Light buttons, after it blinked I released the buttons and the RED LIGHT turned off. However, is there suppose to be a green light, or does the red light come on when it needs replacing, and in the meantime, there is NO LIGHT whatsoever?

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.

NO manual for Fridge.


I can get the service manual for you. Here is what the manual tells you on page 101.
WATER FILTER CHANGE REMINDER
(Select Models)
For some refrigerator models featuring
water filters, the Water Filter Change
Reminder function monitors the life of the
filter and provides a reminder when it is time
for the filter to be changed.
When the system detects either 12 months
of usage, or the filtering of 416 gallons of
water (whichever comes first), the CHANGE
FILTER
indicator light will illuminate. This
indicates that the water filter should be
changed and the light reset.
To reset CHANGE FILTER light: Press and
hold the LIGHT and LOCK pads until the
CHANGE FILTER light blinks (approx. 3
seconds). The control is now reset for 12
months or another 416 gallons.
Thanks, Sea Breeze

Here is a solution I found for my fridge from another site.
http://www.justanswer.com/questions/2ce1x-maytag-refrigerator-mfi2266aeu

I had to change the Door Alarm button to temp alarm for my fridge Maytag model MFI2266AEW. See if it works for you, it worked for me. I had nothing flashing at all and had to change it to zero but all you need to do is change it back to whatever is on your fridge. My code was inside the fridge, after the word code. It was 4 digits long.
