How do I find out which replacement filter part to buy?
How do I change the filter?
The Filter light turns red to let you know when it is time to change your water filter cartridge. To give you time to get a new filter the red light comes on just before the capacity of the current filter runs out. Follow these steps to change the water filter.
To change the water filter more easily shut off the water supply valve. Sometimes it is hard to disassemble the water filter because impurities in the water cause it to stick. If you are having difficulty grip the water filter firmly and pull it hard.
When you pull the water filter a little water can leak from the opening. This is normal. To minimize the water leaks keep the filter cartridge horizontal when you pull it. To prevent overflow empty the water tray filter ( 3 ) and dry around of case filter ( 2 ).
Shut off the water supply valve if the water pressure is too great. The locked symbol should be lined up with the indicator line.
For a replacement water filter you can check online or contact the Samsung Parts distributor. Be sure the replacement water filter has the SAMSUNG logo on the box and on the water filter.
