In a busy household, there are plenty of things we don’t have time for: cleaning grout in the bathroom, doing the laundry, and changing our Samsung refrigerator’s water filter. But it’s important to change your filter regularly because it helps keep your fridge clean and working properly. Here’s how to change samsung refrigerator water filter do it on a side-by-side model or bottom freezer:
Samsung Refrigerator Water Filter?
A Samsung refrigerator water filter is a device that helps prevent the growth of bacteria in your drinking water. The filter, which is made of carbon, glass fiber or cellulose, removes particulates and chlorine from the water so that it can be used safely for drinking.
You should change your Samsung water filter every six months to keep your system running at its best. This will also ensure that you don’t notice any unpleasant flavors in your beverage due to impurities left behind by old filters.
It’s important to note that this type of product is not the same as a water softener (which works differently). You need to install one separately if you want to get rid of build-up on pipes caused by hard tap water containing high levels of minerals such as calcium and magnesium (which causes scale buildup).
Determine which water filter you need
The first step to replacing your refrigerator water filter is identifying which type you need. This will vary from model to model, so be sure to check with your refrigerator’s user guide or search online for instructions. If you can’t find it there, try looking for the manufacturer’s website and searching there for information about which filters are compatible with your unit. Once you know what filter you’re working with, keep these things in mind:
- Look for a Samsung Water Filter
- Model Numbers
- Serial Numbers
How do you change the water filter on a Samsung side-by-side refrigerator?
- Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator.
- Open the filter cover on your Samsung side-by-side refrigerator and remove any old filters.
- Install a new filter in its place, making sure that it snaps securely into place.
- Close the filter cover and turn on your Samsung side-by-side refrigerator’s water supply to complete installation.
How do you reset the water filter light on a Samsung refrigerator?
If the light on your Samsung refrigerator is red, this means that it’s time to change your water filter. However, if you don’t want to change it just yet or if you have forgotten when it was last changed, there is an easy way to reset the light and turn off its indicator so that it stops reminding you about its expiration date.
- Turn off your refrigerator
- Turn off the water to your refrigerator.
- Turn off the power to your refrigerator.
- Unplug it, if you have one of those old-fashioned refrigerators that still require plugging in!
- Pull your refrigerator forward to unplug it
Before you can change the filter, you must unplug your refrigerator. This will prevent water from flowing into the appliance and causing electrical damage to it. The first step is to shut off the water supply to your refrigerator.
You may find this on a valve under your sink or in a box outside of your house. Next, pull out the refrigerator as far as you can so that you can reach its plugs on the back side of it (or wherever they are located). Unplug these plugs and set them aside with care; make sure that they do not get crushed or damaged when moving things around during this process!
- Find the filter housing inside your fridge and locate the red release tab
The filter housing is the box that contains the filter itself. To find it, open your refrigerator door and look for a small square unit at the back of your appliance. This is where you’ll locate the red release tab on top of the housing—it’s used to open and close this container.
Once you find it, pull down on it gently until you hear a click sound; this means that your filter has been released from its enclosure.
Now that your old water filter has been removed, clean away any food debris left behind (if there was any) before installing your new one in its place. Then just push firmly into place with both hands until it clicks into position again!
- Remove the old filter and replace it with the new one
- Remove the old filter from its housing and dispose of it properly.
- Insert the new filter into its housing, making sure that the arrows are lined up correctly.
- Lock the new filter into place.
- Line up the arrows on the new filter with the ones stamped on the housing, then lock it into place
- Line up the arrows on the new filter with the ones stamped on the housing, then lock it into place.
- Make sure that the filter is facing in the correct direction—if it’s upside down and facing you, turn it over so it’s facing away from you.
- Push gently but firmly until you hear a “click” to ensure that it’s securely locked into place. Check by shaking your refrigerator or looking at its front edge and seeing if any part of it jiggles or moves around when you do this test; if so, try again until there is no movement seen or felt at all when shaking/testing this section of your fridge.
It’s easy to see why you’d want to change a water filter regularly in a busy household
In addition to the obvious benefits of having fresh, clean water, changing your filter regularly can help reduce the risk of:
- Scale buildup in pipes and faucets. As you use hot water over time, minerals like calcium and magnesium will build up on your pipes and faucets. This buildup can cause leaks that could lead to expensive damage, so it’s important to keep this mineral buildup at bay by changing filters often.
- The taste of chlorine in your water. Some municipal systems add chlorine as part of their purification process; this chlorine may still be present even after purification through a filter because some particles are too small for the filter to catch them all (though most modern refrigerators come equipped with carbon-based filters that do an excellent job). If you’re sensitive to chlorine or just don’t like its taste, changing filters regularly will help ensure that none slips through into your drinking supply!
With a little effort and some patience, you can change your Samsung water filter with ease. It’s not an overly complicated process, but it does require some time and attention to detail.
