Replacing and Resetting the Water Filter in Your French Door Refrigerator (RF23M80*)

Buying bottled water is a thing of the past! Your fridge's water filter ensures that clean, great tasting water and ice is always available!

In time, the filter indicator will light up to let you know the filter needs to be replaced. Once you replace it, touch and hold Filter Reset until the indicator goes out. To purchase a replacement water filter, click here.

• Do not use third-party water filters. Use only Samsung provided or approved filters.
• Unapproved filters may leak and damage the refrigerator. Samsung is not responsible for any damage incurred from the use of third-party filters.

Replacing the Water Filter

  1. Lift up the filter cover.

  2. Turn the filter knob counterclockwise 90 degrees. The filter will unlock.

  3. To remove the filter, pull it out.

    • If the water filter is severely contaminated, it may not be easily removed. In that case, you can forcefully pull it out.
    • To prevent leakage, pull the filter straight out when removing it.

  4. Insert the new filter.

  5. To lock the filter into place, turn the cartridge knob clockwise 90 degrees.

    When installed, the corners of the water filter will align with the housing.
