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

After replacing the cartridge, the water flow is extremely poor. After calling GE, I was told I may have a bad filter. Hope not at the price per filter they charge. Is there any other solution? Is it...


The GE GXRLQR is the correct *replacement* filter for the following "Smartwater" single stage filtration and exterior refrigerator icemaker systems:
  • GE GXRLQ
  • GE GX1S50F
  • GE GQ1S50F
This filter is rated for only 750 gallons / 6 months of use (typical fridge with ice maker & water service). Most home faucets will deliver about 6 gallons / minute which roughly translates to about 2 hours of running water.


The GE FQSLF works with the following for the following Dual Stage Under Sink filtration systems:

  • GE GQSL55F
  • GE GXSL55F
Because there are 2 filters, they will last nearly 2x as long as the GE GXRLQR. and would likely be better suited to serving a faucet which will pass much more water than a fridge ice maker & chilled water dispenser would.

The real question is: Which GE filtration SYSTEM (not filters) do you have?

Water filter drain running all the time


Is this a new system? The should be a small restriction in the drain line. The size of the restriction is matched to the gallon per minutes of the R.O. system. Yours could be missing or not the right size, ie not enough restriction.

My GE Smartwater filtration system makes a whining sound


The system is most likely running to the drain. Bypass the water softener to see if the whining stops. If it is running to the drain it is either stuck in backwash cycle or the interior seals are bad and need to be replaced. If it is stuck in backwash the drive motor is probably bad and needs to be replaced.

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.

Low water pressure is diminished after replaced 2 filters in a month. plumber tested to see if water is fully flowing.


Does this mean that you are now having the right pressure? Since the filters are changed, water should
now flow. Is it all systems go?, that is assuming that
your pipelines are not clogged.

My ge smartwater was running very slow ao i changed all three filters, now it runs normally for a couple of seconds then it just trickels out.


The tank was full of water . The blatter in the tank was empty so I pumped six pounds of air into it and it works great.
