GE DSS25KSRD-SS

Purchased a used refrig in January, 2011. Changed the water filter when bought.

Is the water filter indicator light supposed to be on all the time? It has never been on. I don't know how often I should change the filter but the water flow is getting very weak.

I pressed the "filter indicator" button and held it for 3 seconds and the light flashes red and then holds red and then goes out. It only does this while I'm holding the button.

What does this mean? Circuit board?

you should change the filter every 3-6 months, in my experience when the water flow to the door is getting slowed down, this can be resolved by replacing the filter. You should be able to reset the filter light by holding the filter status button untill, the light holds a color, then press it again and it should change colors, and go off, then when you go to get water it should be green instead of red. SO what I'm saying is that you have to manually reset the light. Doesn't sound like a board issue to me yet.

thank you, but light will not "reset". The light blinks 6 times (red), then stays on for 1-2 secs, then goes out. Will not change colors, will not come on when getting water.

I know it's not a critical issue, but we may be selling it and I would like for it to be working properly so I can get the most value out of it.

I have had this problem on two units now. The solution in both cases was to replace the user interface and display panel.
