How to Reset the Filter Light on Your Samsung Refrigerator

Most Samsung refrigerators feature filter indicators to notify the user when the water filter needs a replacement. It also means that after replacing the filter, you must know how to reset the filter light on your Samsung refrigerator.

But why is that?

Typically, the maximum number of months to use a water filter is 6 months.

However, you may need to replace the filter earlier than the recommended months, depending on the type of water that flows through the waterline. For instance, if the water is hard, then you may need to change the filter within 3 to 4 months after installation.

Except you notice a change in taste, there will be no way to tell that your filter needs a replacement without checking the filter light.

How Samsung Water Filter Indicator Works

Depending on the model you have, the Samsung water filter shows a blue or green color when the water filter is still good for use.

After 5 months or 450 gallons, it changes to an orange or light pink color. Often, this color change is an indication that you need to change the water filter.

After 6 months or 500 gallons, your water filter indicator will turn red. Once you spot this red light, change the water filter. If you wait any longer, you may start to notice particles in your drinking water.
