About replacement filters in refrigerator

I have GE GSS25QGDM refrigerator and filter model is GWF. First when I bought my refrigerator I noticed that my filters running out very fast, about 3-4 months for one cartridge. This way I replaced 3 filters and I saved the old ones. Last summer I rechecked these filters again, two of them had very poor performance but 3d one was good and i installed it again. Strange thing that I am still using this filter and I can't complain about water current. I think I was using it about 3 months first time and I am using it now about 6 months. My 1st question is Why it didn't work before and it works now? 2nd-what can i do with my used filters, can i recycle them from GE or somewhere else?

Re: about replacement filters in refrigerator

Grand, on this model the filter is designed to be used for up to 8 hours of open valve time or one year of calendar time. In other words if it takes you 8 seconds to fill a glass, that would be 8 seconds of open valve time. When 90% of the filter time elapses, either open valve time or calendar time, (which ever comes first) the main control board will indicate the amber light. When 100% elapses, the light will go red. As far as would have to give GE a back

How to replace ge rpwfe filter

I think on that model there is a long plastic cover on the top right hand corner with a tab in the front. Push tab and cover should hinge down to uncover the filter. Unscrew filter to left and pull forward. Reverse to install new filter.

Why my refrigerator is leaking water from the top where the water filter is located?

Shut off water supply valve. Relieve water pressure by dispensing water. Unscrew water filter. Examine to see if the gasket is damaged or if filter was loose and just needed tightening. Or simply replace water filter with the correct water filter that your GE refrigerator calls for.

My filter is located on the inside of the refrigerator in the top right corner. It twists off and is easy to replace.

Ice from ice maker smells and taste bad

We have a similar fridge: part of the issue could be with the filter, GE has a 6 month filter and a 1 year filter. Might be time to change it (I believe the MWF filter is one year, the GWF is 6 months). Changing the filter helped in our case.

But overall, if you leave lots of leftovers in the fridge, the ice will pick up the smell. A couple of boxes of baking soda should help absorb the smell before it settles itself in the ice.

Water Filter

If you have a GSH25JFRx.. (x = E,F,G,H,I, or J) it will use a MWF (formerly GWF) water filter. It is a can shaped filter located at the top right back of the fresh food section. Give is a quarter turn CCW to remove. (the water auto shuts off when you remove the filter)

Ice maker doesn't fill all the time on a GE side by side model TFX22ZRSM

I bought a brand new smartwater replacement filter and after a very short time, my water stopped coming through the door.. took out the new replacement filter and inserted a brand new one .. problem solved.. apparently some of the g.e. smartwater filter replacement cartridges don't have the high enough two plastic inserts which are attached to them at the top of the filter when you screw them on... if you have taken your cartridge in and out a few times, i think it wears down the plastic so it doesn't fit properly and won't put up whatever it is supposed to push up to make the water come through.. I personally think this is a g.e. problem with the replacement filters... this might be part of your problem.....

GE Profile water filter housing leaks

Hi there is a grommet you can replace.
#WR02X10678 it is about $7.00 It can help seal the plug sometimes. Ge does want you to buy the whole filter assembly it is number
#WR17X11618 $51.50 . You may also consider putting a new filter in. It seals better than the plug it is number
#gwf $42.95. I dont know why they dont sell a o-ring kit. I guess they just dont make much money on o-rings. I hope this will help you. Have a nice day.
