Installing the Water Filter

Is the Water Filter Clogged or Incorrectly Installed?

A clogged or incorrectly installed water filter will reduce the water flow to the ice maker, which will cause small ice cubes or low ice production. 

The water filter indicator will help you know when to change your water filter.

  • The indicator will change from dark to yellow when it is time to order a new filter.
  • The indicator will then change from yellow to red when it is time to replace the filter. The disposable water filter should be replaced at least every 6 months or more often depending on your water quality and usage.
  • After replacing the water filter, reset the water filter indicator  Press and hold the RESET FILTER touch pad for 3 seconds. The indicator light will turn from red to dark.
