Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ge Profile bottom freezer, french door refrig, water filter

The water filter in our new refrig needs to be replaced every two weeks instead of every six months as called for by GE. According to GE the filters are "Too good" and they are getting many calls about the filters. The tech that came out to our home told us to just by pass the filter. I asked I if I should by pass the freezer should it not work in the future. The service tech told us to get a pre-filter installed. We had our water tested by an independent company and were told we do not need a filter. None of the homes adjacent to ours are in need of filters either. We have been trying to get GE to deal with this problem form the day we took possession until now (6 months). The warning light to replace the filter does not work and the door handles have fallen off as well. Please Help!!! About 2 weeks after a new filter is installed the water stream from the in-door water dispenser has a greatly reduced flow and the ice cubes are very small. The ice from the ice maker is often dispensed wet.

Just replace GE's filter with a standard inline filter that hooks to 1/4" water line tubing. Sounds like their filter has no flow rate either...

GE Profile PFSF5NJW French door Bottom freezer. Freezer is fine. Refrigerator at 60 degrees. Unplugged for two days to thaw any possible freeze up. Refrige still at 60 degrees.


If that is what happened after plugging back in still no change in temperature I recommend you call someone you can trust. Trust is about asking too much these days. You refrigerator does not need to run at all until I or someone can find the problem. If someone there would like the challenge and knows how to use a multi-meter let me know. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Disconnect the water line where it comes out of the water inlet valve and see how the flow is when you try the dispenser. Disconntct the water line at the bottom of the freezer door where it goes into the door. If it flows good here it may be freezing in the door. Open the door till it thaws.
If it's good at the inlet valve and slow at the door, some models have a way to put a plug in and bypass the filter.

Reset Filter Indicator Light is on


Look for your model number from the sticker inside the fresh foods section of the refrigerator, usually on the liner near the door opening. Now, go to http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ to download a use and care manual for your model, as the reset procedure may vary by model. The filter is usually located at the very back right upper side of the fresh foods compartment, but again, it may vary by model.
