Make sure the water is turned off to system. Open the faucet to system to drain any water and keep the faucet turned on to keep pressure off filter housings.
1.Use the wrench to take housings off.
2. If they still won't budge take a small 2x4 block of wood and hammer, set the block of wood on the RIB for the housing and tap with hammer.
3. Change the o-rings in both housings, lubricate with silicone lube and lubricate the threads on housings with silicone also.
3. Rinse housings with small amount of bleach and clean thoroughly.
4. Replace filters and housings.
5. IMPORTANT: Only tighten housings by hand. NEVER tighten housings with wrench.

My GE Smartwater filtration system makes a whining sound

The system is most likely running to the drain. Bypass the water softener to see if the whining stops. If it is running to the drain it is either stuck in backwash cycle or the interior seals are bad and need to be replaced. If it is stuck in backwash the drive motor is probably bad and needs to be replaced.
Here is a link to GE website for manual

I need a handle for the Smart Water System

Here is the web page for GE. You will probably have to replace the whole faucet. When you call have the model # available for your system so they can supply the appropriate faucet. You may as well order more filters as they will be less expensive ordering on-line. These filters should really be changed every 6 months.
These faucets are relatively easy to replace for the do it yourselfer.

If it is coming from the canister, pull it off, check the o-ring, it is probably pinched. It will need to be replaced.
