I bought this Samsung fridge
last July for my new home - admittedly I didn't do a lot of research on it as it was on sale for half price (!!) because it was a floor model and had a teeny tiny ding on it. I never
would have been able to afford something so nice, so I went for it. Things have been great, but now there is a red light on the display telling me I need to replace the water filter. I had no idea it even had a water filter!
I use the ice maker daily, but really don't use the option for the cold water - it takes forever to fill my water bottle. As a rule, I try take care of my things to get the longest life out of them and usually follow manufacturer's instructions for care, however in this case, I have well water and because of that, already have a really good filtration system where the water enters my home - and I also have a water softener after that. The water travels about 20 feet of copper pipe from the well bladder to the fridge if that matters.
Do I really
need to spend $30+ every few months for a new water filter for the fridge? I'm starting to feel like this may not have been such a bargain after all if I have to do that.
And if I really don't have to replace the filter, how do I reset and get rid of the red filter warning on the display.
