SOURCE: GE smartwater filter (model GXRLQR) stopped working...help!

These replacement filters (GXRLQR) are FLAWED straight out of the factory. The problem is in the 2 little "teeth" nubs that stick up near the center circle of the filter. When the filter is twisted and inserted, these teeth push up on a tiny black spring loaded valve in the body of the filter, alowing water to pass through up and out the spigot. The flaw is that the "nubs" are too short and do not push open the spring valve far enough, reducing flow to a semi-trickle, even with a brand new filter. GE seems to think this is not a problem.

Solution=stick a $0.25 garden hose rubber washer in the top of the filter and screw it in. You may have to try a few times to get it to work and seat properly. When it works, you'll immediately get a nice super flow of water. Better than upgrading to a $200 filter system recommended by GE...

How do I fill system


Open hot water handle farthest from the water heater. Turn water on that fills the water heater. It will take several minutes to fill the tank. Let it continue to run until all air is out of line. Turn all other hot faucets on to purge air from lines.

Gxrlqr filter leaks


MAKE SURE THAT WHEN YOU REPLACE THE FILTER IT IS IN THE SAME ORDER AS THE ONE YOU REMOVED OR THAT IT IS THE SAME MODEL TYPE REPLACEMENT , I WOULD TRY TO TURN IT AROUND FIRST , A THIN WRAP OF "WHITE PLUMBERS TAPE" , AROUND THE SCREW TOP INNER SEAL MAY CORRECT THE LEAK , ABOUT THE FILTER , WELL , IT MAY JUST BE SIMPLY IN THE REVERSE ORDER , TRY TO FILP THAT OVER , AND WHEN YOU RESEAL THE CAP ON THE FILTER MAKE SURE THAT THE SEAL IS ON PROPERLY , APPLY PLUMBERS TAPE ONCE AROUND , AND *"BEFORE YOU TIGHTEN IT" , GENTLY , REVERSE THE CAP BACKWARDS , SLOWLY , UNTIL YOU FEEL IT "SEAT " PROPERLY , "THEN" YOU MAY TRY TO RE-TIGHTEN IT . THIS SHOULD REMEDY YOUR LEAK , IF IT CONTINUES MAKE SURE THEN THAT YOU HAVE THE CORRECT REPLACEMENT FILTER MODEL FOR YOUR PARTICULAR ITEM . HOPE THIS HELPS YOU . NOW GO FIX IT ! GOOD LUCK .

I need a handle for the Smart Water System


Here is the web page for GE. You will probably have to replace the whole faucet. When you call have the model # available for your system so they can supply the appropriate faucet. You may as well order more filters as they will be less expensive ordering on-line. These filters should really be changed every 6 months.

These faucets are relatively easy to replace for the do it yourselfer.

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.

I have a smartwater filter (model GXRLQ) under my sink and when I changed it, it began making noise like air was in the line. After the noise stopped, the water is barely flowing. Any suggestions?


If you were simply changing the filter, then I would pull the new cartridge back off and inspect the o-rings. It's possible that one got bunched on the install and is blocking the inlet/outlet of the water. Other wise if you had to turn off the water any where to change the filter, check the valve that the water runs through to see if it is turned on all the way.
