The Avalon Water Filter is a three-stage filtration system designed to reduce impurities and contaminants in your drinking water. It features two sediment filters that help remove dirt, rust, silt, and other particles and an activated carbon filter that traps organic compounds such as chlorine. The result is clean, great-tasting water free of many common contaminants. Installing a replacement water filter for your Avalon water filtration system is easy. It takes about 20 minutes and a few essential tools, such as a screwdriver, adjustable wrench, and pliers.
Installing The Avalon Replacement Water Filter
Turn off the water supply to the sink: Before starting the installation process, turn off the water supply to your sink. This can be done by finding and turning off the shutoff valve near your sink.
Connect the Metal Adapter with the valve: Connect one end of the Metal Adapter with the valve on the water line. Connect the other end of the adapter to a nearby cold water pipe and tighten it with a wrench or pliers until it is secure. Use Teflon tape (or thread sealant) to help ensure a watertight seal between the adapter and pipe.
Remove the nut from the Metal Adapter: The old filter will be connected to the faucet using a metal adapter. This connection must be removed to install the new Avalon replacement water filter. To remove it, take an adjustable wrench and unscrew the nut from the metal adapter.
Insert the PE Tubing: Once you’ve got the PE tubing ready, it’s time to insert it into the SHDN port of your Avalon water filter system. Take one end of the tube and connect it directly to the outlet on the back of your Avalon filter. Make sure that all connectors are securely fastened and sealed.
Screw the nut tightly into place: Insert the cartridge into the head assembly. To do this, rotate the cartridge counterclockwise until it is firmly in place. Make sure to pay attention to how you install it so that you can remove it for replacement later on. Tighten the nut clockwise by hand across all threads to secure the cartridge in place. Check to make sure there are no leaks. If there are, tighten the nut further.
Indicator Lights On Avalon Water Filter?
Cooling Indicator Light: When the filter is cooling down, a blue light will be displayed on the illuminated display.
Filter Indicator Light: When it’s time to replace the filter, an orange light will appear on the illuminated display. To ensure that you receive the optimal quality water, we recommend replacing your filter every six months or when this indicator light appears.
Heating Indicator Light: Once you have installed the Avalon replacement water filter, you will want to check that it is working correctly. One way to do this is to look for the green heating indicator light on the machine’s side. If the light is lit, it indicates that your filter is on and ready to be used. If the light is not lit, it may mean that the filter has not been installed correctly. If this is the case, you may need to reinstall the filter or check for any loose connections. It’s essential to ensure everything is securely connected before using your filtered water.
Power/Self-Cleaning Indicator Light: After the Avalon replacement filter is installed and you have completed a self-cleaning cycle, a power/self-cleaning indicator light will turn on. This indicates that your water filter is ready for use and should be replaced every six months to ensure optimal filtration.
To reset the power/self-cleaning indicator light, press and hold the reset button for 3 seconds. The light will then turn off, indicating that your filter is ready to be used.
Indicator lights are flashing, and the unit is beeping: If your Avalon replacement water filter is flashing red, then this indicates that it’s time to replace the filters. If the indicator light is green and the unit is beeping, check if the tank has been overfilled – if so, turn off the bypass valve and allow water to flow until it reaches its average level. If your problem persists, please get in touch with customer support for further assistance.
Water leaking from the unit: If you notice water leaking from the unit, it may be a sign of a malfunctioning filter. You can identify the source of the water by looking around the frame or base of the filter. If you find any cracks, holes, or other signs of damage, replace your filter as soon as possible.
Water not dispensing at a hot or cold temperature: If you have recently installed a new Avalon replacement water filter and the water is not dispensing at the desired temperature, there may be several causes.
- Check if your refrigerator has an adjustable thermostat and set it correctly for hot or cold water. If it does not, you can adjust your in-line valve to redirect the water flow from hot to cold or vice versa.
- Inspect the filter cartridge and make sure it is correctly installed. Your Avalon replacement water filter should be firmly secured to the fridge’s water line to ensure the proper flow of filtered water.
- Please verify that your refrigerator has enough air circulation around its back wall by ensuring no items are blocking the area. Poor airflow can affect the refrigerator’s ability to cool or heat the water.
How much does the replacement water filter cost?
The Avalon Replacement Water Filter typically costs between $25-$30. The exact cost will depend on the specific model you require for your Avalon water filtration system.
Can you use the filters from another brand for an avalon water cooler?
No, the Avalon water coolers require replacement filters made explicitly for them. A non-Avalon filter can damage your machine and lead to poor water quality. It is best to purchase an Avalon replacement filter when it comes time to change out the old filter. The specific filter your cooler requires will be listed in the user manual.
How long does the avalon water cooler last?
The Avalon replacement water filter lasts up to 2,000 gallons or six months, whichever comes first. You must change the filter every six months for the best results. To extend the life of your filter and ensure optimal performance, it is essential to properly maintain your unit by regularly cleaning the exterior cabinet and rinsing the inside of the cooler.
Installing an Avalon replacement water filter is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. Ensure you have the right tools, follow the instructions carefully, and take your time to ensure it’s securely installed. After installation, flush the system with cold water for 10 minutes to remove any sediments or impurities left behind. With the right filter and careful installation, you’ll have access to clean and purified drinking water in your home.
