If it is leaking at the supply connection, then it can be tightened. If it is leaking from the body, then it must be replaced.

Water seems to be leaking from the top lid of my ge water heater


Make sure any water valves (Cold or Hot) for water heater are not leaking first. Gate valves may leak at the packing nut over time and drip on top of tank. If water is leaking from the top of the water heater itself the tank is corroded and water heater will need to be replaced.

Water leaking from top on water heater


If it's leaking from a hose then you can try unscrewing the hoses, put some Teflon tape on the water heater threads and tighten. If it's leaking from the rim or under the threads call a appliance repairman.

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.

I have a GE smartwater reverse osmosis system model number GXRM10GBL02. Water leaks daily from the small hole on the faucet on my counter top. Any idea why water comes out that small hole? Otherwise the...


That is the drain for the reverse osmosis system. You have what is referred to as an AIR GAP faucet. The waste water is pushed up there before it goes to drain just as the drain for a dishwasher does. If water is coming out of the faucet the drain is most likely plugged or the line is kinked causing water to back up and overflow. Check the drain line for kinks and clean out the drain where it attaches to the stand pipe.

The red button is a pressure relieve valve. If the system is leaking from the valve, try pushing the valve up from the underside of the cap where the valve is located. If this does not work the housing needs to be replaced. You do not have to replace this with a name brand like GE. All you need to do is make sure the housing that you are purchasing is the same size.

before putting cover on, chk the button to make sure it isn't staying depressed and see what the button is doing when depressed. The cover may have to be in a certain position. with the cover in place, gently rotate untill button pops up
