Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
I installed a new water filter, and the reset button will not reset the water filter. Any ideas?
You have to hold the reset button for 3 seconds - not 3 light flashes. I had to experement with pressing the button, you just have to keep trying and counting 3 seconds - mississippi 1, mississippi 2, mississippi 3.
Hope this helps!

Reset Filter (select models)
When a water filter has been installed in the
refrigerator, the yellow Order light will illuminate when
90 percent of the volume of water for which the filter is
rated has passed through the filter OR 11 months have
elapsed since the filter has been installed.
The red Replace light will illuminate when the rated
volume of water has passed through the filter OR 12
months have elapsed since the filter was installed. A
new filter should be installed immediately when the
Replace light is illuminated.
After replacing the filter, press and hold the Reset
Filter pad for three seconds. The Order and Replace
lights will go off.
The Vacation Mode feature causes the freezer
to defrost less frequently, conserving energy. The
Vacation Mode indicator light will illuminate when the
feature is activated. To deactivate, press the Vacation
Mode pad again OR open either door. The indicator
light will go off.

Water Filter Status Light (on some models)
The water filter status light will help you know when to change
your water filter. When the water filter status display changes from
"GOOD" to "ORDER," this tells you that it is almost time to
change the water filter cartridge. Replace the water filter cartridge
when the water filter status display changes to "REPLACE." If
water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases
noticeably, change the filter sooner. The filter should be replaced
at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and
After changing the water filter, reset the status light by pressing
and holding the FILTER button for 3 seconds. The status light will
change from "REPLACE" to "GOOD" when the system is reset.
Changing the Water Filter
1. Press the eject button to release the filter from the base grille.
2. Pull the filter straight out.
3. 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.
4. Align the ridge on the cap with the arrow on the new filter and
turn the cap until it snaps into place.
NOTE: You can run the dispenser without a filter. Your water
will not be filtered. Simply insert the cap all of the way into the
base grille and rotate the cap until it is firmly in place.
5. Remove the covers from the O-rings. Be sure the O-rings are
still in place after the covers are removed.
6. Push the filter into the base grille. The eject button will pop
back out when the filter is fully engaged.
7. Flush the water system. See "Water and Ice Dispensers."
Water Filter Status Light:
The water filter status light will help you know when to change your water filter.
When the dispenser control panel's water filter status display changes to "ORDER," this tells
you that it is almost time to change the water filter cartridge.
Replace the water filter cartridge when the water filter status display changes to "REPLACE."
The filter should be replaced at least every 6 months depending on your water quality and usage.
NOTE: If water flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably, change the
filter sooner. After changing the water filter, reset the status light.
Pressing and holding RESET FILTER starts the 3 seconds countdown. Using the dispenser
cancels the countdown AND no dispensing is permitted. The number '3' blinks 3 times and the
'invalid' tone sounds 3 times and user has to release both the pad and the button and press
the button again to start it over
After 3 seconds, the BLUE WATER BARS in the Icon flash and an audible tone sounds 3
times. When the system is reset, the "ORDER" and "REPLACE" icons will disappear from the
display screen. See figure 16.
Note: Users can reset the filter status at any stage.
