Indicator light for Brita filter not working

I have a fairly new Brita faucet filter. Not long after purchase the red light stayed on. I took out and put back in the filter. Then no light at all, neither red nor green. Today replaced the filter, still no light at all.

I called Brita and was told that the light is powered by an irreplaceable battery in the system which is good for about two years. The tech on the phone said to replace the filter every 4 months as a solution.

    I had this problem too and had the system less than one year.

    Same here. I bought mine in June of this year and it’s already quit. It was my very first filter change at 3 months. I wasn’t even behind on changing the filter, I was early but the red light was on. I changed the filter and now nothing. What a piece of junk if it’s going to stop that easy!

Replacing the Brita filter indicator battery is to difficult. To replace battery you have to get manufacturer support. But some times you can make it home's. I found all the details in this following post

Brita Memo Replacement Unit failed then order a FREE replacement !

Create an account at Brita then go here you will receive you new Brita Memo Replacement Unit within 10 days.

https://www.brita.net/uk/replacement_parts.html?L=1

Usually the battery in this unit will last about four years however if you register your details with a valid email all BRITA products will come with a 2 year manufacture guarantee... but should any part of it break, we will send you a replacement part absolutely FREE

Don't bother trying to replace the CR1616 battery yourself it is a sealed unit and once the seal is broken you can replace the battery but it will fail very soon with steam ingress even if you superglue it.!!

USER REGISTRATION required valid e-mail

I changed the filter on the aquasana clean water machine and it continues to blink red. What do I need to do to get the light to be blue?

https://www.aquasana.com/info/education/time-for-a-filter-change

How do you reset a Brita filter indicator?
  1. Press the Reset button firmly for 5 seconds. If needed, use a capped ballpoint pen.
  2. The green, yellow and red lights will simultaneously blink.
  3. Release the RESET button when only the green light blinks.

Brita filter

When you initially soak the bag in water make sure to squeeze it lightly and shake to release all the air bubbles. Also, you should pour out the first couple pitchers of water after using a new filter as it takes time to break in. This way all of the gray or black filter water will be gone by the time you wish to drink. For more water filter and pitchers go to www.freshwatersystems.com.

Brita faucet filter adapter is stuck in my faucet

It sounds like the adapter was screwed in at an angle. This causes the threads to cross in turn making it near impossible to unscrew. Since it is plastic I recommend buying a new adapter. I know it's unfortunate, however it is a lost cause.

I have a brita faucet filter. And the selector knob is getting harder to turn. If it gets any worse I will need to use a wrench. I wanted to try to lube up the movement if I can open up the casing. How...

I have a Brita faucet filter (model FF-100) that lately has become harder and harder to turn. I toyed with the idea of forcing the unit apart but, instead opted to lube the mechanism directly from the top, where the unit attaches to the faucet.
To this mean, you will have to 1) Detach the unit from the faucet. 2) Remove the filter. 3) Thoroughly wash the unit, inside and out, turning the knob to flush any debris that may be present. 4) Pour some drops of vegetable oil inside the mounting opening, coating the valve stem within. (Oil may pass thru the unfiltered water outlet, so choose an appropriate working space). 5) Turn the water handle (knob) to lube the valve repeatedly, until it loosens. 5.b) Optionally, you could let the oil sit for some time inside the base. 6) Rinse the unit and reinstall it on faucet (without the filter). 7) Turn knob to unfiltered position, and flush with warm/hot water. 8) Do likewise with knob set to filtered, but open faucet only slightly, to avoid over-spraying. 9) Remove base unit from faucet and repeat steps 3-9, as needed. 10) Reinstall unit with filter, as instructed by manual.
Water valves may seize due to mineral deposits. While you may be tempted to use detergents or solvents, be reminded that unless thoroughly rinsed, chemicals may corrode plastics, degrade your filter, or even wind up in your drinking water, so caveat.

Two led water purity monitor problem

The LED monitor should light up as Green when the membrane is producing the proper water quality (80%+ TDS rejection). If the LED light stays Red this indicates the RO membrane is bad, all the filters (including membrane) should be changed and system sanitized. The batteries in the TDS monitor should be changed yearly also. Don't have a lot of faith in that indicator light. The best way to test for TDS rejection is with a digital TDS meter which indicates the amount of rejection. Compare the incoming water to the product water of the RO.

Brita faucet filter will not stay on faucet

Want a free adapter and patient enough to wait for a couple of weeks to get them?
"To receive a special adapter free of charge, call 1-800-24-BRITA or 1-800-387-6940 (CANADA)."
Call the number above and a voice prompt will give you instructions on how to get your adapter for free. 2 weeks might be too long but the best thing is it is made of stainless steel/chrome and it comes in 3 different kind of adapters with rubber washers.
