Reset Water Filter Indicator Light

Troubleshooting

RESET WATER FILTER INDICATOR LIGHT ONLY AFTER WATER FILTER HAS BEEN REPLACED 



Instructions for replacing filter & resetting indicator light


Instructions from owner manual 


If the water filter indicator will not reset, this may indicate that the function can only be reset every 6 months like clockwork. To reset the water filter indicator on most models, press and hold the filter button for 3-5 seconds. Refer to your owner’s manual for instructions on resetting the water filter indicator. Please find following a few illustration examples of various refrigerator control panel series of buttons.


Control panel type 1 and 2  


                                              Control panel type 3  


If the control panel is locked, the water filter indicator cannot be reset. To unlock the dispenser, press and hold the lock button for 3 seconds.


If the water filter indicator has not reached zero, it may not be possible to reset the filter indicator at this time. Some models can only be reset when the filter status indicator reaches zero despite customers having been proactive in replacing the water filter inside their refrigerator in advance.


WE PROFUSELY APOLOGIZE TO THOSE OPERATING A REVERSE OSMOSIS WATER FILTERING SYSTEM FEEDING PURE & CLEAN WATER TO THEIR REFRIGERATOR DISPENSER FOR THE INCONVENIENCE OF HAVING TO RESET THE FLASHING WATER FILTER INDICATOR LIGHT EVERY 6-MONTHS. TERRIBLY SORRY AS THIS FUNCTION CANNOT BE DISABLED.


TOUCH BUTTON TIP

For the obvious reason of real estate limitation on an appliance’s control panel, some buttons are assigned dual functionality. There is the primary function in larger size lettering and the secondary function identified by an asterisk followed by smaller size font immediately underneath the primary function text.

To activate the primary function, simply press the button dead center on the main text. To activate secondary function,   PRESS & HOLD DOWN   button for 3 seconds or longer making sure your fingertip is applying pressure dead center on the main text.

Some customers have expressed concerns over inability to get button to respond successfully. Control panel soft membrane buttons are incredibly sensitive. Customers need to press button dead center else it will be unresponsive.


Following is an example from an LG Range/Oven control panel:

Range control panel example  



Regardless whether selecting primary or secondary function, the fingertip must be applied dead center on that respective button's main text.

Area best to apply fingertip pressure to activate function  



Pressing the button away from its center risks causing NO CONTACT failing to execute desired command.

Difference between missing the mark and hitting it  


Reiterating the concept, in the above case, customer wishing to input cooking time would press the COOK TIME button then proceed to make the adjustments. However, if the intention is about adjusting the time, the customer would   PRESS & HOLD DOWN   the COOK TIME button for 3 seconds or longer until message to adjust time appears in the display window.
