It will eventually clog up, and the water volume will become less and less untill it is a tickle, and eventually stops.

It could also cause premture failure of the valve/pump.

I did our usual 6 month replacement of the PureSource2 filter in our fridge, but during the 3 minute of running the water, the water stopped.


hello rodger;

my name is peter. i am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

you may have gotten a bad water filter. once, as a service technician we received a supply of bad water filters. all of us technicians have to return to our service calls and replace the water filters.

what had happened is the granules in the filter fell apart and plugged up everything, including the water solenoid valve filter screen.

remove the water filter and see if you can flush your system out by running your water dispenser with out the filter.

Ge smartwater filtration system has slow moving water


You have to prime air out of new filters. Also if you have a reverse osmosis water system, your water pressure may not be sufficient.
You may have to bypass the filter. Most fridges come with a plug that will fit where the filter goes. good luck

Hello. please tell me where the water filter is located? Thank you


they don't have filters in the machine, if you have a filter look in the basement,find the water feed line going to the fridge and see if the plumber installed a filter.if he didn't shut off the water valve going to the fridge,cut the water line and install a filter.you'll need to buy a filter and a couple of connectors to connect the filter to the water line.hope this helps.

I have a GE MWF water filter that is dripping water into the refrigerator. Fridge is about 8 yrs old and have changed many of the MWF water filters. 1st time with this problem.


Many times fines from these filters become dislodged and plug up the filter housing. If you have the bypass plug for the filter, install it and run a couple gallons of water through fridge to flush the system completely. The install the filter again. Make sure none of the water lines feeding fridge are pinched or kinked and valve is on all the way.

Change water filter


You can check the local Home Depot or Lowes if you have one near by.
Both have a good selection of filters for refrigerators.

Another good online source can be found here.

Good luck!

Water filter question


WOW! I'd say that the filter is definately due for replacement.

The manufacturer recommends the filter be changed every 6-8 months, as with ice and water dispensers in the door, folks tend to use the chilled water and ice more often, hence you get alot of gallons of water thru the fridge each month.

Once you replace the filter, you'll need to flush out the lines, (see the instructions with the new filter) to get rid of any loose carbon in the filter element, but once you done this, you should also notice better water flow and better tasting water and ice cubes too.

I tend to change my ice/water filter on my fridge every year when I change my smoke detector batteries. That way, I don't forget, sort of like my personal "once-a-year" house task list to change batteries, filters, resetting timers, etc., etc.

It's a good idea to change these smaller filters at a minimum of once a year, as they are no longer providing the filtration you want, and can actually be letting some of the contaminents fow out and into your water and cubes.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Water filter


Inside filters usually need to be pushed up and rotated, then pulled down (bayonet lock). In line filters (outside of fridge) usually need to be unscrewed, both ends. Inside ones are really expensive.

Water leaking at filter


If this is a Pure source 2 filter in the upper right hand side of fridge, Purchase an Electrolux filter bypass, P/N 241944302. This is a empty cartridge that lets water flow without water drip when filter is clogged. Fridgidaire/Electrolux made no bypass in these filters, so when clogged they leak. Plus they NEVER last more than about 30/60 days. If you use the bypass, you will need a separate filter elsewhere such as in water line under sink or behind fridge. Call me at 816-560-8545 if you need more info.
