WATER FILTRATION AND MONITORING SYSTEM
(ON SOME MODELS)
The water filter indicator light
The water filter indicator light will help you know when to
change your water filter cartridge. The light is located at the
top of the refrigerator compartment. The light will change from
green to yellow. This tells you that it is almost time to change
the water filter cartridge (90% of the filter life has been used).
It is recommended that you replace the water filter cartridge
when the water filter indicator light changes to red OR water
flow to your water dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably.
(See "Changing a water filter cartridge" later in this section).
NOTE: Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe
or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before
or after the system.
After changing the water filter cartridge, reset the water filter
indicator light by pressing the light switch 5 times within 10
seconds. The indicator light will change from red to green when
the system is reset.
Changing a water filter cartridge
The water filter is located below the freezer compartment door.
1 Locate the water filter cartridge cap in the front base grille
below the freezer compartment door. Rotate the cap
counterclockwise to a vertical position and pull the cap and
filter cartridge out through the base grille.
NOTE: There will be water in the cartridge. Some spilling may occur.
2 Remove the cartridge cap by sliding it off the end of the old
cartridge. The cap will slide to the left or right. DO NOT
DISCARD THE CAP.
3 Take the new cartridge out of its packaging and remove
protective cover from o-rings.
4 Slide the cartridge cap onto the new cartridge as shown.
5 With cartridge cap in the vertical position, push the new
filter cartridge into the base grille until it stops. Rotate the
cartridge cap clockwise to a horizontal position.
6 RUN WATER THROUGH THE DISPENSER UNTIL THE WATER
RUNS CLEAR (about 9-14 litres or 6-7 minutes). This will
clean the system and clear air from the lines. Additional
flushing may be required in some households.
NOTE: As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out of
