    Sorry It may still be on after you replace the filter and you have to reset the light on the panel that its on. There is usually 2 keys you hold down.If you dont have the manual ,let me know Model/ Serial #.

Red light on the control panel is lite, and will not dispense ice or water.


Hello Theresa, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided the light on your control panel is red and it is not dispensing water or ice. The red light means the filter is 100% used up and needs to be changed out. When the filter is dirty it will not allow water or ice to dispense or produce. You would need to purchase water filter WF3CB as a proper replacement filter. You can visit your manufacturer's website for assistance with purchasing that replacement filter. I hope this is helpful information for you. -Matt

I just installed the water filter in the fridge but the light on the front door panel still shows red


This is another one for the user manual! Always check it first. It would seem likely that the system is either time or water flow controlled. By this I mean that somehow your little red light is caused to light up. For example by a little device which can measure how much water you've used. This device could need resetting.

Try contacting manufacturer

Filter light on


Water Filter Status Light and Filter Reset
The filter reset control allows you to restart the water filter status
tracking feature each time you replace the water filter. See "Water
Filtration System."
After changing the water filter, reset the status light. Press the
OPTIONS button to enter Options mode, then press LOCK to
initiate the reset, then press MEASURED FILL to confirm that
you want to reset the status light. When the system is reset,
the "Order" and "Replace" icons will disappear from the
display screen.
These instructions can be found in the=> GZ25FSRXYY2 User Manual . As for the dispenser and ice dispenser problem this could be related to a loose connection in the door where wiring attaches to control panel and/or where door wires go from door to cabinet also a defective pressure switch where glass is pressed to get water or ice. Can you tell me when this additional problem began?
I am here should you need me, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

After changing the water filter, how do I get the red light on the control panel on the front of the refrigerator to go out?


WATER FILTER CHANGE REMINDER

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.

A more complete manual can be found here=> http://appliance911seabreeze.com/index.html

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 do i reset the filter light on my refrigerator msd278ge


Hello,

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......

    Can't identify "water filter indicator light"


    the indicator light could be on the control panel inside the refr section if your controls are there, or it is most likely on the front of the dispenser panel. it only comes on when you draw water from the dispenser and thats when you will see it be green, filter ok, yellow, filter at 80% life, or red, time to replace the water filter.
    also you dont need to shut off the water when changing the filter as it is made with a shut off device in the filter housing already and is automatic.
    by the way filters are expensive, go online and check prices. google "water filters" and find a good price.

    Water Filter Indicator


    I discovered by sheer luck that if I hold down the OK button for a few seconds the filter indicator changed from the flashing 1% to 99%.
