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......

    Replaced filter. Why is red light still showing?

    The filter light is controlled by time interval. Not by how much water that has gone trough it. Your refrigerator does not know that it has a new filter before you tell it that it has. I dont know the brand of your fridge. But there is a reset filter button. Look at the attached picture for a example. On this fridge this picture has to pressed and keep pressed for 10 seconds to reser filter light from red to green

    Filter light will not turn off

    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.

    GE General Electric Refrigerators - Press and Hold the Reset Button for around 8 Seconds.

    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.
