How to Reset GE Water Filter Light

GE / Hotpoint Models:

  1. TYPE 1
    After changing the water filter, the (RESET) water filter Button must be pressed and held down for 3 seconds until the red light goes off.
    On some models the light goes out and on others it will turn green; either is considered normal.
    If you do not hold the button down firmly, the red light will stay on.
    Also, if you hold the button down for a long period of time, the light will go off and then come back on.
    Make sure to hold it for about 3 seconds.
    Keep in mind that if you use one of the newer GE (RFID) enabled water filters, your fridge may automatically detect that a new filter has been added and reset the light for you.
    There is not a way to manually reset the water filter reminder on a Touch Screen model.
    When the filter or by-pass plug is correctly installed, the word “FRONT” will be showing.
    If “BACK” is showing, then reverse the filter or by-pass plug and reinstall it.
