How to Replace the Samsung Aqua-Pure Plus Filter DA29-00003G
  • Turn the used filter counterclockwise 1/4 turn and pull the filter straight down (The water shuts off automatically so you don’t have to worry about flooding your refrigerator)
  • Discard the used filter and slide the new filter into the fridge with the handle in the vertical position
  • Push the filter straight up into the fridge and turn it clockwise 1/4 turn
  • If your refrigerator has a “Change Filter“ light, reset it
How to Reset the "Change Filter" Light
  • Press and hold the Ice Type and Child Lock buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. If the light turns green, you have successfully reset it (If you hold these buttons for 5 seconds, you will cancel the reset process and will have to redo it. If this happens, release the buttons and start over)

My Samsung DA29-00003G water filter isn’t fitting. What changed?

Samsung recently made design changes to several refrigerator water filters. The new model of DA29-00003G has a different locking mechanism that can make it difficult to install.

How can I get it to fit?

There are a couple of different troubleshooting methods you can try.

Recommended Troubleshooting Method: If an older version of DA29-00003G was previously installed, the locking tabs on the filter housing may not be open fully or aligned properly. To open the tabs:

  • Reinstall the old filter cartridge.
  • Press upwards on the filter cartridge and turn it to the left about 1/8 of a turn or until it can no longer turn. Note that the old filter cartridge should release and will drop down from the housing if not held in place.
  • Remove the old filter cartridge and install the new filter.

Troubleshooting Method Two: If the old filter cartridge is not available, a great amount of force can be applied to insert the new filter (at your own risk). However, please note that damage to the filter housing is possible when this method is used. Use the following steps:

  • Insert the filter cartridge into the filter housing with the “lock” icon on the filter cartridge aligned to the left of the “unlock” icon on the filter housing.
  • Turn the filter cartridge counterclockwise approximately 1-2 inches until it catches on the filter housing.
  • Using considerable pressure (at your own risk), continue turning the filter cartridge counterclockwise until the “lock” icon aligns with the “lock” icon on the filter housing. You should hear a small burst of water run through the filter.

Troubleshooting Method Three: If the above methods do not work, we recommend purchasing the SpiroPure SP-SA003 refrigerator water filter. SpiroPure SP-SA003 has the older style of locking mechanism used by previous versions of DA29-00003G.
