When it is time to replace the water filter of your Samsung Fridge, the filter indicator will turn red. Before replacing the filter, shut off the water supply.


If you are having trouble getting the filter out even after the water supply has been turned off, you may want to dispense water from the water dispenser until it runs out completely.

Steps on replacing the water filter.

1 Turn the knob of the filter cartridge counter clockwise 90 degrees (1/4 turn) until the filter cartridge unlocks.

Note: If the water filter is severely contaminated, the cartridge may be hard to remove. In that case, use force to remove the cartridge but be sure to pull it out in a straight motion.

3 Insert the new filter cartridge. Be sure to use only Samsung provided or approved filters. Using non-Samsung or unapproved filters may leak and damage your fridge.
4 Turn the cartridge knob clockwise to lock into place.
Installing water filter
5 On the home screen, tap Fridge Manager > Fridge Settings > Water Filter , and then select Reset . The filter indicator will turn off.
6 When you are done replacing the filter, open the water valve and run water through the dispenser for about 7 minutes. This is to remove any impurities and air from the water line.
