How can I reset the filter light on my Kenmore Elite refrigerator model number 596.77599801 if it does not turn on at all?

I can hold the button down forever and it has no green or red light. The other function lights all work fine and show green. Am I doing something wrong or is it broken and in need of repair.

If your refrigerator does not have a water filter status light, you should change the water filter every 6 months depending on your usage. If the water flow to the dispenser or ice maker decreases noticeably before 6 months have passed, replace the water filter more often.

If your refrigerator has the status light indicator but is not lit. I would suggest unplugging the refrigerator to reset the control board. If this does not fix the problem I will strongly suggest calling us at 1-803-6775 to have a technician diagnose and repair your refrigerator.

Hold down the light and the lock button until the red light goes off. Should be about 5 seconds.
