How often to change the water filter for Samsung Refrigerator?

Last Update Date : May 04. 2018

The water filter needs to be changed when the Filter Indicator light turns red (see the picture of the control panel below). Usually this happens about every 6 months.  

• Blue: Initial insertion of the water filter
• Purple: When the water filter is used for 5 months
• Red: When the water filter is used for 6 months
