Question about GE Profile 25.5 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - Stainless-Steel

1 Answer

I just installed a new MSWF water filter cartridge on my GE Profile refrigerator. After pushing the reset button, there is no water flow at all. I can hear the pump humming. I tried removing and reinstalling the filter but that didn't help. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.

    Just to clarify, the water flow was fine with the old filter, till I replaced the filter. So, I am thinking it is unlikely that the problem is a clogged line.

    I just tried taking out the filter and replacing it with the plug that comes with the refrigerator. No water flow. It is as though the flow stopped when I took out the old filter.

Tried new filter. Thought water line frozen. Problem solved by bypassing the water filter. Now that I'm working without filter I will troubleshoot the filter receptacle.

SOURCE: TFX24PRXBWW GE Profile Refrigerator - energy use?

I dont know how to locate these specs for you, modern refrigerators are much more efficient for a couple of reasons. Most new units have a Computer that controls the defrost cycle whereas older units have timers that defrost every 8 hours of on comp run time regardless of whether it needs defrosting. The new ADC (adaptive defrost control) can better monitor the frost on the coils to defrost less (in the defrost cycle it consumes 5x as many watts as when its cooling. Also most new refrigs, especially new GE units have much more efficient fan motors now also, however they too are computer controlled and when they fail they are expensive. Also the very high end new Counter depth models (in the $2500+ range) have a new variable speed compressor. This gives the compressor the ability to run at a low, med, and high speed, reducing even more the watts that will be drawn in normal operation when the fan motors are on low and the compressor too. If you have any other questions let me know ill be glad to advise.

P.S. Buy an extended warranty with any new appliance you purchase! Trust me!

SOURCE: ge profile refrigerator ice maker

I have what appears to be a similar problem -- but have not yet found a solution. The door or valve on the ice dispensing chute is not closing or sealing properly. The warm air from the kitchen is drawn into the freezer (ice maker). The warm air condenses and freezes causing the ice cubes in the ice bin to freeze together, preventing their discharge from the bin. Also, the warm air and condensation freezes and builds up frost and ice in the discharge chute. When you try to discharge ice cubes, they get stuck in the chute and will not discharge.

Temporarily, you can open the freezer door, access the ice bin and loosen the cubes which are frozen together. You can also remove any cubes from the discharge chute. If there is frost and ice in the discharge chute, use a hair dryer to melt the frost and ice, putting a container under the dispenser in the door to catch the run-off water.

I've done all of the above and I'm still not getting a proper seal and air is still getting into the ice maker bin and dispensing chute. Looks like a service-call is next.

SOURCE: ge profile refrigerator door stop isn't working

Did it ever work or for some reason you never noticed it before? I've had to swap the door stops to get the door to stop. They can usually be swapped around according to what's needed in different situations.

Double check the filter install you did. Make sure there isn't any clear plastic seal over the center hole of the filter and retry the water. If it worked before the problem has to be in the filter install or the filter is possibly defective and wasn't manufactured properly. The reset button is only for the warning light---has nothing to do with filter or water operation.

How do I change the water filter on my GE Profile French door refrigerator?


The filter on the one I know (see below) has the water filter in the upper right of corner of the refrigerator. In my experience, you should move all food from that side of the top shelf of the refrigerator and put a shallow pan underneath. Some water will spill.

First get the cover out of the way by pressing in on the tab on the front and tilting the cover down. Remove the old cartridge by rotating it counter-clockwise. The front end of the cartridge is shaped to make a handle. Use care in case any air bubbles have built up behind the cartridge; they could force the cartridge out suddenly. Remove the foil from the end of the new cartridge. Line up the arrow on the cartridge and the arrow on the cartridge holder and then rotate the cartridge clockwise until it stops. You will feel a "click" as it locks into place when properly installed. The grip on the front should be positioned vertically. If the cartridge is overtightened, it will leak. Close the cover and the refrigerator doors. Run the water dispenser for 3 minutes (1 1/2 gallons of water) and discard the water. This will clear the line and prevent future sputtering. It will probably sputter while you do the inital clearing.

Reset the water filter replacement light by pressing and holding the Reset Water Filter pad for 3+ seconds.

The manual for most GE refrigerators are available online from the geappliances.com site. A very similar unit has the manual here: http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SpecPage&Sku=PFSS5NJWSS .

I hope this helps.

I have exactly the same problem. Replaced my GWF filter with the "new improved" MWF filter and the same thing happened. Tried replacing the filter not once, but twice - same low water flow. If you install the bypass plug the water flow is normal, so don't bother checking for water restrictions, bad hoses, tanks etc.. My refridgerator is a GE Profile 26 cubic foot purchased in 2004. I'm afraid these MWF filters don't work well in older models.

Replaced the water filter. the refrigerator is making ice but not dispensing water


Is there any packaging from the new water filter restricting the flow. Check for anything blocking the water flow near where you replace the filter and check for correct installation. If this problem was the reason you replace the filter check the switch that dispenses the water. Make sure it isn't "iced up".

No water, no ice, but new water filter cartridge


If it was running before the filter change you need to purge the filter cartridge of the air in the lines. Also check voltage on the back on the water control valves . While someone presses dispenser you should get 120volts AC on the plug receptacle side for the dispenser . Let me know what you find, Sea Breeze
