    Sorry, but this does not work. After I pressed both buttons at the same time for 4 seconds, all the lights went off (light did not flash) and would not come back. I repeated the same procedure and the lights went on to the same initial situation - the red light is still on.

    Hi, I have a refrigirator Amana AS2626. I replaced the water filter and the red light is still on. I drained more than 5 gallons of water already and it is still on.I pressed and hold the dispenser lock and auto light buttons on the dispenser at the same time for 4 seconds. All the lights went off but they did not come back. I had to press once more just to restore the lights and still, the red light is still on. Please advise what can I do.Thank you.

    Hi Ginko,

    I tried disconnecting and it didn't work. I shall try defrosting tomorrow. Thank you very much for the advice.

    Hi Rotorcrafts,
    Just to confirm that I finally did succeed to fix the problem by pressing the dispenser lock and water buttons at the same time. Somehow I failed to do so on my first attempt. Thank you very much for your assistance, Aviva

Normally, to reset the Indicator Light on the fridge, you press and hold the Auto and Dispenser Lock buttons until the water filter indicator light flashes (forget about the 4 secs).

If no luck, disconnect fridge from power for five mins and try again.

If that does not work, either the filter is defective, board is defective, or there is a problem with water inlet sensing due to water frozen somewhere inside the inlet lines.
The first two occurrence are quite uncommon, new filters are rarely defective, and faulty control boards usually cause more than one problem.

If possible do a complete defrost of the unit, that should fix the red light problem. If it does not, then the fridge is defective. In that case call Amana at the number on the user manual.

Regards.

Ginko.

You need to reset the water filter light. Following is a general procedure for Amana Refrigirators.

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

I cant get my refrigerator unlocked


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
