    Thanks for trying, but it doesn't tell me how to bring pressure back to normal. It takes over a minute to fill a glass of water. it used to take about 10 seconds to fill a twenty oz bottle!

To prove if it is the filter or associated pipe work connect an inlet hose direct from the tap to the inlet valve on the back of the unit,if this works then you have a defective filter, its not unknown. Regards Advisor

No to air, due to the small bore of the pipework they usualy run slow this assists the water to cool as it lows through the unit. Regards Advisor

How do you clean the filter


In order to look up the filter change procedure I would need the specific model number. However, filter changes or washing should be done regularly. Look for a very simple lift-out design that is washable in the kitchen or laundry sink. Soak in soapy water and rinse with spray nozzle.

As for the symptom "Blows out warm air" this is expected. The dehumidifier is less than 100% efficient, meaning that the energy that is used produces heat in the exhaust air. A 100% efficient design would still send all the heat energy of condensation (endothermic phase change) into the exhaust air. You should expect 1072 BTU per pint (1 pound of water). This is far more than the heat of crystallization (144 BTU per pound of ice) and therefore much more sensible when you feel the discharge air from the dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers typically operate in basements to both warm and dry the area where a sump pump may be operating to remove the water that seeps through the foundation. A dehumidifier is not a good idea for warm areas of the house. This will decrease the efficiency by increasing the temperature differential needed to get the evaporator coil below the dew point to cause condensation. The condenser coil will be much hotter than expected if the unit is operated in a warm humid room. Only air conditioners which discharge condensate and exhaust air to the outside of the structure should be used to cool a room.

Water does not flow


Sounds like air in the line.....the filter may be cracked/damaged, or not quite seated...?

since you've tried 2 new ones....I'm gonna bet they are not quite the correct ones for your fridge.

GE Refrigerator Water dispenser trickles


Side like a water supply issue or a kinked line. Good pressure at first then weak pressure after a short time is a restriction in the water flow.

I can't get a water flow from my RO faucet or from the water dispenser in the door of the fridge...also the ice maker won't work. I just replaced the 3 large filters, and no change. Just a trickle, then...


If the tank is full of water (pick it up) with 8 lbs of air then the air charge is low and little or no water will come out. Take should have 7psi air pressure when it is completely empty. Make sure all the water valves are on. If feeding RO with piercing valve make sure it is open all the way and has plenty of water pressure feeding RO. If there is no water being created then there will be no water at faucet, fridge or ice maker, assuming they are all tied into the RO.

I have a well-x 250 the tank appears full of water. I cannot get any pressure in the top I tried pumping air in with an air compressor. right now I am draining the water out at just a trickle blowing air...


To get the water out so you can lift it knock a hole in the top next to the bend.then throw it in the garbage.250 is a big tank make sure you size the new one for your application.theres no fix $$$$

HAVE REPLACE THE FILTER, NO WATER OR ICE WHEN FILTER WAS OUT MADE ONE BATCH OF ICE THEN STOPPED NO NOTHING WATER IS ON NO KINKS IN HOSE WHAT IS WRONG THANKS ROSE


Try putting the old filter back in . Just because the " change filter " light comes on , does not mean to actually change the filter if your water dispensor is not just trickling out . If water was coming out fine before replacing filter , no need to replace it just because ot the indicator . I have found new filters which worked worse than the old filter . Just put the old filter back in and problem solved .
