The water filter replacement indicator on our RS275 refrigerator will not reset. Things I tried so far:

  • pressing the filter reset button for three seconds (it beeps, but the indicator light stays on)
  • replacing the filter (no effect)
  • pressing the ice type+child lock buttons (other Samsung fridges reset the filter replacement indicator this way).

Any ideas?


You are pressing the wrong button, press and hold the "Ice Type" button to reset. From the Owners Manual:

• Change filter every 6 months. If indicator is purple, the filter has 1 month left. If indicator is red, quick replacement is strongly recommended. • When the water filter is replaced, reset the indicator by pressing the Ice Type button for 3 seconds. • To turn this indicator off, press the Ice Type and Child Lock buttons simultaneously and hold for 5 seconds.

Note: the light will "stay on", but it will change color to green. I personally have difficulty with this because of mild red-green color vision deficiency, and must have another family member confirm when the LED color change has occured.

  • tried three times Ice Type... it beeps but does nothing. The {Ice Type + Child Lock} combo instead worked on the second try. Thanks! – 0xF2 Nov 19 '16 at 16:47
