GE RO - Not getting water and everything is going through drain

I moved to a new house and installed the working GE RO - Model #PXRQ15F. I replaced the existing RO with this one (I also replaced all the filters and they are brand new). After installing the RO was not working. When I looked into it I noticed all the water is going out of drain line. No water is going to Tank and/or the faucet. I spent quite some trying to install/re-install to make sure everything is OK but no luck. I need your expert advise. Please help. Thanks,

SOURCE: Water won't flow from GE Smart Water under-sink RO water filter

Disconnect the water pressure tank making sure the end the line hooks up to is open. The tank should be relatively light, and if you shake it you should not hear any water. If you hear water in it, or it feels heavy, that means the bladder inside the tank has failed. Replace the tank with a new one, and set the pressure on the bicycle type valve at 8 PSI before you connect the tank up to the water line.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: need directions to replace Culligan HD-950 filter cartridge

First you want to turn the water off, both the in and out on the filter, then push the red button this will release the pressure in the filter so that you can unscrew the catredge housing. I have a plastic wrench that came with mine. it's just a ring with a handle on it, inside the ring are some dogs that catch the ribs on the canister. If you don't have the wrench, the canister is big enough to get 4 or 6 hands on it to unscrew it4356153.jpg3ee22c8.jpg

Ge gss22 where is the ice maker supply valve


Pull the refrigerator out and follow the water line to the back. It will go to a double valve solenoid. One half is for your water dispenser, the other for the ice maker. It is possible that this solenoid has failed. You can order the part online and replace it pretty cheaply. Just remember to turn off the water supply (usually under the sink) and unplug the refrigerator before hand and have a towel ready to catch water that will drain from the lines.
To order the new part get the full model number of your refrigerator and go to the GE website and look up their replacement parts page. You should be able to search for that model and all of its related replacement parts there.

I want to unhook my reverse osmosis how do u do that and what are the steps


Here are the steps to remove your RO system. Put a pan and a couple rags under sink to catch any water that might spill.
1. Label all the lines from RO (with masking tape) to remember where they go.
2. Turn the water off to RO system
3. Run all the water from the RO tank
4. Turn the valve off on RO tank.
5. Remove the line to the RO tank and pull tank out.
6. Remove the line to the RO drain.
a. If there is an AIR GAP faucet this line may go there first
b. plug the whole for RO drain or replace the standpipe
7. Remove the product line from RO faucet
8. Remove the water line feeding the RO system.
9. Make sure the valve feeding RO is shut off completely
a. If this valve is a piercing valve you may want to consider replacing the section of copper
plumbing because it will eventually leak if left unused.
10. When re-installing the RO remove old filters, sanitize system and replace with new filters.

I HAVE A RO WATER FILTRATION MY PROBLEM IS I CANNOT GET WATER FLOW TO THE WATER STORAGE TANK ALSO I JUST CHANGED THE MEMBRANE FILTER


There may be several causes for this. Here is a list of things to look for.
1. If an activated carbon filter was installed many times carbon fines will plug up the head of the RO housing. Pull the filters out and flush the whole assembly with NO filters in it.
2. The capillary tube (which puts back pressure on the membrane to create water) may be worn out and all the water will run to the drain. Replace capillary tube
3. The automatic shutoff may not be opening to allow for water flow.
4. Shut the water off at RO tank and take the line off from RO filters to see if any water is flowing from housings.
5. The RO tank may also need air. If the air charge is low in tank (7 psi for 3 gal tank) no water can be forced from the tank.
6. If the RO is fed by a piercing valve make sure their is water coming from it.
7. Depending on what type of RO it is their may be a flow restrictor in head of membrane housing that can get plugged also.
I hope these tips may help you,
RJ

GE smartwater R.O. system leaking out weep hole


Same exact problem started for us last night. (Same model, installed by me about four+ years ago) Water was really coming out of the weep hole, and didn't stop until I shut it off at the valve. This happened once before, and all I had to do was clean the drain line adapter, because it gets full of gunk from the disposal over time. But this time that did not do the trick. (Plus there was not all that much gunk this time....) So I was baffled for awhile but came up with this solution.

I hooked up a small length of clear tubing to my cheap-o tire inflater/air compressor. Put the clear tube against the weep hole. Turned on the compressor, and VOILA!, a bunch of gunk that was clogging the drain tube came out. I think when this tube, or the drain line adapter gets clogged, it causes water to go out the weep hole instead of down the drain. (If you don't have a small compressor, then theoretically there is enough air pressure from something like a bicycle pump, and this solution *might* work with one of those. But if you try this, of course only use the DOWNWARD (air-going-outward) pump action...pulling up (inward) would force the clog deeper up the drain tube)

GE dishwasher, model #gsd4000j00bb, won't drain.


I just posted the soloution that I found for this problem to another question. I found a bone stuck in the impeller of the discharge pump. Requires that you pull the unit out turn it on its side (rather messy and everything needs to get disconected as if you were going to remove the unit from the house and install a new one). Find the discharge pump and remove the cover (I pulled a 2.5" rib bone chip) remove the blockage, button everything back up, hook it all up slide it back in and now mine works.

Water dispenser is very low


If it connects to your house plumbing via a saddle valve, replace the saddle valve. Avoid the self piercing type as they poke a very small hole in the house water line and will get plugged easily or the needle inside the valve will break off and drift in and out of the hole in the line.Other possibilities are: Plugged water filter (time to replace) or your water line is hooked up to a reverse osmosis system (RO) and you aren't getting enough flow and pressure through the RO system. Connect straight to house plumbing if that's the case. I would imagine you have hollow egg shell looking ice cubes too...?
