Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. Here is what to do:

  • Maytag and Jenn-Air - press and hold the lock and light buttons (lock and water on newer fridges) on the dispenser for about 4 seconds, until the indicator light blinks.

  • Hopefully that resovles your filter light being on.

    Thanks for choosing FixYa.

    Where is the water filter for the ice maker located on a GE tfx24zr side by side refridgerator located

    Filters situated in the interior liner of the refrigerator compartment of GE-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
    1. Remove the old filter by grasping it and slowly making a one quarter turn to the left.
    2. Pull down gently on the filter to remove it from the mounting bracket assembly. Be careful to not tip the filter, as water may spill out of it.
    3. Discard used filter.
    Water by Culligan filter cartridges need to have a water filter adapter installed. This is a one time installment, and once you have this adapter installed, it stays in the refrigerator for all future filter replacements. If your refrigerator already has this adapter in place, do not remove it to replace the filter.
    Smart Water filter cartridges do not require the use of the water filter adapter. If for some reason your refrigerator has an adapter in place already, you will have to remove it before installing a Smart Water filter cartridge. The adapter is removed in the same manner as the filter itself: with a gentle quarter turn to the left.
    Remove the new filter from its packaging. Apply the appropriate month sticker to the filter to remind yourself to change it again in six months' time.
    Fill the filter with water from the tap, and then line the arrow on the filter up with the arrow on the cartridge holder inside your refrigerator.
    The filter automatically pulls itself into position as you turn the filter to the right and lock it in place. Be careful to not over tighten the filter into position.
    Run water through your dispenser for about three minutes to clear the system. Keep in mind that a newly installed water filter could initially cause water to spurt from the dispenser.
    Note: Replacing this type of filter is a quick process - there is no need to unplug your refrigerator when replacing it. Also, this filter should be replaced every six months.
    Hope this was helpful to you. Thank you for using fixya.

    Replaced my GE double wide refrigerator SMARTWATER FILTER #GWF With a which is supposed to be better. Yet, the water stream has cut down to half. Do I need the adapter collar for this newer model? ...

    I have exactly the same problem. Replaced my GWF filter with the "new improved" MWF filter and the same thing happened. Tried replacing the filter not once, but twice - same low water flow. If you install the bypass plug the water flow is normal, so don't bother checking for water restrictions, bad hoses, tanks etc.. My refridgerator is a GE Profile 26 cubic foot purchased in 2004. I'm afraid these MWF filters don't work well in older models.

    I have an amana refridgerator with the ice maker and water dispencer. Neither one is working anymore and I was wondering if you could help in this problem?

    Use the blue bypass cap which came with your refrigerator and check to see if the water filter is clogged. With the bypass installed you should get water from dispenser. If no water even with the bypass cap installed, check your water source and make sure it is turned on and no kinks to the connection line to the refrigerator. If you are 100% sure your water source is good TO the unit, then your Filter/Head assembly is not working properly.

    The indoor water of my Whirlpool side by side refridgerator stopped dispensing water. The ice still works. I changed the filter but still no water

    More than likly the solinoid is damaged, turn off the water and power and remove it, once removed you can turn the power back on while you go and find a new one. leave the water off until the new one is installed and turn the power off while you fit the new one. Turn on water, check for leaks, turn on power check for leaks again.

    Before you pay for a new solinoid ask the parts guy to test your old part. If this is not the problem is has to be a problem with the electric switch attached to the water dispencer handle.

    The solinoid is a double one side controls the ice the other cold water to the door, mark the two wire terminals so you can put them back. ( check you didnt loosen one of the wires when changing the filter - stranger things have happened ) solinoid is located at the end of the water line from the wall, just behind the cardboard at the bottom of the fridge, it should have two water lines and two power terminals attached.

    Can't locate the water filter. water has a bad taste

    The base grille water filter is located below the freezer
    compartment door. Depending on your model, you may have a filter that is installed behind the base grille or a filter that is installed through the base grille.
