Ge smartwater filtration system has slow moving water


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

Check the micron rating on the filter. A typical filter will be 30-50 micron. If the new filters are a finer micron 5-10 these will reduce the water pressure significantly and plug up much faster. Also note if you have more sediment occurring. If on a well, hook a hose up to the drain at the well tank and flush the tank out to a floor drain, take note of any sediment, let the well kick on several times to flush completely.

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.

Replaced my GE double wide refrigerator SMARTWATER FILTER #GWF With a which is supposed to be better. Yet, the water stream has cut down to half. Do I need the adapter collar for this newer model? ...


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.
