Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
GE profile model PSS26GRE SS. I have the filter removed and the "bypass plug" installed because we run treated water to the frig (no need for the filter and it just slows the flow). I have a leak from the filter unit with the plug installed. The plug installs over a cone-shaped stucture on the filter housing that has 3 O-rings. The plug slowly fills (hours) and then water drips onto the top shelf of the frig. I tried replacing the O-rings with ones from Lowe's but it leaks faster. Is it leaking from somewhere else? Are the O-rings a special dimension that I have to get from GE? The parts diagram only shows the entire filter housing, as if I can't get the O-rings by themselves.
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.
