When To Change An Amana Refrigerator Water Filter
Your fridge water filter is due for replacement when the filter status light/indicator alerts you that it is time for a replacement. This staus light will be located located on the temperature control panel, or on the dispenser control panel. Check with your user guide if you are not sure of its location.
There are two styles of indicator lights. Type 1 indicator is a single light or series of lights, the color of the lights will change from green to yellow when it is almost time to replace your water filter. It is definitely time to replace the filter when the light changes to red.
Type 2 indicator resembles a stack of bars, the bar height will decrease and the status display will change from "Good" to "Order." At this stage it is a good idea to order your replacement water filter cartridge. The next notice you will receive is "REPLACE".
No matter what type of refrigerator you have or whether status lights or indicators are present it is always recommended to change your water filter every six months.
They should also be replaced if the water flow to the dispenser or ice maker has decreased over the lifetime of the cartridge. Decreased water flow is most often a sign the the water filter is clogged. Another factor that can impact on the lifespan of your filter is the frequency of use and the quality of the water itself.
How To Flush An Amana Fridge Filter
If you are just after connecting the refrigerator to a water source or replacing the fridge water filter, the system needs to be flushed out. You need to flush out approximately 3 gallons or 12 litres of water. Using a suitably strong container you need to press down on and hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, after 5 seconds you need to release it for 5 seconds. Repeat this process until water begins to flow.Once you have flow of water you should still keep depressing and releasing the dispenser lever (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) until you reach a total of about total of 3 gallons/12 litres of water having been flushed through the water filtration system.
This flushing process ensures that air has been removed from the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare the water filter for use. Water spurting is usual if there is a lot of air in the system and some systems may need further flushing until all the air is removed.
How To Reset Your Refrigerator Water Filter Status Light/Indicator
After you have inserted your replacement water filter cartridge you can reset the filter status light by pressing the Filter Indicator Reset button or by pressing and holding the Filter button for 3 seconds.The indicator status light will will now change from red to green or the status display will change from "Replace" to "Good" when the system is reset.
