after i plug the frig back up and the light did not come on, i did the reset again just as you wrote above and the light did not come on. The light does flash 3 times indicating that it has reset but that's it. no light appears next to OK or CHANGE.
Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.
Did you hold both buttons at the same time for 4 seconds. Just making sure that all. Dont get mad.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
yup....i held both buttons. 1st time i stopped holding the buttons after the light started blinking. i thought mayb i stopped holding 2 fast so i did it again and this time i held onto both buttons until the water filter light stopped flashing. didn't make a difference.
Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.
Try this for me please? Take out filter then re-install it then try re-setting this again. Tell me what happens please. Thanks. You have the owners manuel but i have the service manuel.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
no luck
Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.
Was that light on before. Meaning the ok.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The red light was on b4
Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.
Im talking about the ok light was that ever on before?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
yes
Expert:  william replied 4 years ago.

I believe that the led thats the light has gone out on this. You can change the board if you want to but thats like $100.00 alls you really need is when it tells you to change the filter.
