I have a single stage ge under counter water filter system. When I tried to change the filter the first time, there was no water flow. I tried to reinstall without success. Then I tried another filter and it blew off. Help! Can I use these new filters that I've already tried? How do I get it to go on successfully?

HOW TO CHANGE A GXWH20S FILTER


You need to cut water supply to filter, you may want to put a bucket or something to catch water under it, then, press the button on filter to release pressure in filter. If you have a wrench for it, the wrench should slide up from bottom and engage ribs on side of filter. Turn counter clockwise to remove, sometimes you can do this by hand. You can also use a strap wrech, just don't break canister. You also want to try not to strain your pipes if they are not supported. Any way, you may have to figure a way to grip canister to twist off. You do not want to overtighten for this reason. After you change your element, make sure the o-ring in the lip inside of canister is in place. Twist back on, clockwise. Turn your water on and check for leaks.

Hello I have a GE ( R ) Single stage drinnking water filter like model # GNSV70FBL When i open the Tap it makes a big sound as if there is Air in it and very little water comes out from the sprout. I...


I suggest taking the filters all out and inspecting them. Something is restricting the flow and it sounds like there is an air lock. Also at times carbon fines will plug up the head of the filtration system. So take it all apart, inspect it and see if the head needs cleaning. Put new filters in when done and run the water at faucet until all air is purged and fines flushed out.

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.

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...

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.

Slow water flow from GE SmartWater under sink water filter.


I solved the problem! The system's manifold (the plastic base you put the filter in) has small black conical shape button. When you tight the filter in, one of the two small triangle-shaped cams (located close to the filter's central hole) pushes the manifold's button, and this opens the water flow. The problem is that the cams are too low and do not push the button all the way in. Take a pliers and squeeze (not too much!) the cams, so they will raise a little: it will be enough to push the button to open the flow completely.
