How To Reset The Water Filter Light
When the water filter is replaced you must manually reset the indicator by pressing the Ice Type button and the Child Lock (or Moisture Control) button simultaneously for 3 seconds.
Note: Hold the buttons for only 3 seconds. If you press these 2 buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds. the reset function ceases. Release the buttons and repeat the same step one more time. The water filter indicator light should turn green.
On models without a filter indicator light your filter should be replaced every 6 months. or if you notice a decrease in the flow of water and an impact on the water’s taste.
