* Ice and Water Filter (some models)

NOTE: If you purchased a refrigerator with a



* Ice and Water filter, please read the following use and care


This ice and water filter system filters water to your ice maker and water dispenser. It is located in the upper

right back corner of the fresh food compartment.

System Startup:

Water supply does not need to be turned off, however, do not use ice and water dispenser while installing filter. The filter
cartridge has already been installed in the filter housing at the factory. Refer to the

How The Water Dispenser Works


to properly fill the system with water.

Order new filter cartridges through the
dealer where you bought the refrigerator,
or contact the

Consumer Assistance

Center at 1-800-944-9044, or go to our
web site at It might
be good to order some filter cartridges
when you first install your refrigerator. Be
sure to ask for

the RG-100 Gibson™*

replacement cartridge.

Changing the Filter:

Water conditions vary throughout the world, but changing the water filter every
6 - 9 months normally will ensure the highest possible water quality. The Filter
Status light will turn red after 400 gallons of water has flowed through the ice and
water dispenser (some models). Also, if the filter has been in a refrigerator that
has not been in use for awhile (during moving for example), change the filter
before reinstalling the refrigerator. The dispenser system will also operate without
filtration (with filter cartridge removed).

To change filter:

It is not necessary to turn the water supply off to change the filter.


Open freezer door and leave open until filter change is complete.


Set ice maker wire signal arm to the OFF (up) position (See illustration on
page 12).


Hold filter cup firmly, and unscrew towards left (Some water could
leak out as you remove cup. This is normal.). Filter cartridge should come
down with cup. If cartridge remains in housing, pull down gently, while
twisting filter back and forth.


Rinse out cup under running water.


The large o-ring that seals the filter system sets in the o-ring groove
down inside the cup. Should the o-ring fall out during filter cartridge
replacement, simply place it back in the groove prior to screwing the cup
back in place. If the o-ring becomes damaged, you will need to order one
from the

Consumer Assistance Center



Discard old filter cartridge.


Remove new filter cartridge from packaging and place in cup. The end
with the small o-ring should be up, out of the cup.


Screw cup, with filter, back onto housing. Do Not Use Wrench To Reinstall
. Filter cartridge will self-align as cup is tightened. Be sure cup is
completely tightened with


logo facing outward. Do Not

Tighten Past Stop.


Set ice maker wire signal arm to the ON (down) position.

10. Check for leaks. Open refrigerator door. Wipe any water droplets from the

filter cup. Fill a glass with water. If there is a leak, unscrew filter cup, and
reinsert the filter cartridge. Check placement of large O-ring. Reinstall
filter cup, making certain it is tightened completely.

11. To condition filter system and purge air from water line, fill a glass with

water. Continue flushing the system for approximately 3 minutes to assure
that the purest water possible is stored in the water tank.

IMPORTANT: Resetting The Filter Status Light (some models)

After replacing the filter cartridge, it will be necessary to press the



reset button located on the ice and water dispenser. This will reset

the Filter Status light. Push the reset button until the green, red and amber
lights flash (10-15 seconds). Please refer to the complete dispenser
operating instructions attached to the inside of the freezer door.

On models without a

Filter Status

reset button, there is a set of

Reminder Stickers included in the envelope that the Use & Care Manual
came in. Choose a dated sticker that indicates 6 - 9 months (depending
on your water quality and usage) from the date of installation. Place the
sticker on the front of the filter cup to remind you when it is time to
change the filter.
