Changing the Filter:
Water conditions vary throughout the world, but changing
the water filter every 6 - 9 months normally will ensure
the highest possible water quality. Ice jams in the ice
maker and/or hollow ice cubes (partially frozen cubes
with water inside), may also be a sign that your water
filter needs changing. The Filter Status light will turn
red after approximately 400 gallons of water has flowed
through the ice and water dispenser.
Also, if the filter has been in a refrigerator that has not
been in use for awhile (during moving for example),
change the filter before reinstalling the refrigerator. The
dispenser system will also operate without filtration (with
filter cartridge removed and bypass installed).
To change filter:
It is not necessary to turn the water supply off to change
the filter.
1 Turn OFF side mounted ice maker by raising
wire signal arm to the UP position. Turn OFF rear
mounted ice maker by pressing ON/OFF power
switch to the "0" position.
2 Push the Filter Release Button, located to the right
of the filter cartridge, to release the filter from the
housing. To minimize the possibility of the filter
falling out of the housing during removal, it would be
best to hold the filter as it moves out toward you.
3 Pull the old filter cartridge straight out of the
4 Discard the old filter.
5 Remove the new filter cartridge from the packaging
and insert into the filter housing the same way the
old one came out.
6 When the cartridge is almost in, you will feel it stop
against the clip assembly in the back of the housing.
The clip assembly holds the filter cartridge firmly in
place. At this point, you will need to push firmly until
the cartridge snaps fully in place. When completely
in place, the front of the filter cartridge will be flush
with the front of the housing.
7 Turn ON side mounted ice maker by lowering wire
signal arm to the DOWN position. Turn ON rear
mounted ice maker by pressing ON/OFF power
switch to the "r' position.
8 Fill a glass with water. As you are doing this, check
for leaks at the filter housing.
9 To prime filter system and purge air from water line,
continue flushing the system for approximately 3
minutes to assure that the purest water possible is
stored in the water tank. There will be noticeable
spurts and sputters as the system pushes air out
through the system and out the dispenser nozzle.
This is normal.
