Did you hold both buttons at the same time for 4 seconds. Just making sure that all. Dont get mad.
Customer: replied 6 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.

Im talking about the ok light was that ever on before?

Expert:  william replied 6 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.
