The water filter can be located in three locations and this depends on the model of your refrigerator. Three locations where this can be found is top right hand side of the freezer compartment or between the crisper drawers or sometimes behind the refrigerator.

If you wish to turn this filter replacement function off completely press and hold the CHILD LOCK and ICE TYPE buttons simultaneously again for 2 seconds. The change symbol will turn off.
- Apply a slow and steady pressure when you turn the filter. Turning the water filter may be difficult, but it ensures a tight seal. Moreover, remember to turn on the water supply valve if you have turned it off. To reduce risk of water damage to your property do not use generic brands of water filters, we recommend using only Samsung water filters.
- Samsung will not be legally responsible for any damage, including, but not limited to, property damage caused by water leakage from use of a generic water filter. Samsung refrigerators are designed to work only with Samsung water filters.
Note: A newly installed water filter cartridge may cause water to briefly spurt from the water dispenser. This is due to air getting into the line.
Note the flow direction on the filter. You must ensure that the cut on the water line tubing is square and not at any sort of angle as this could cause a leak.
