Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
It took a while to find the answer to your question... A lot of manual and site searches were required.
There are 24 models ot the TFX25CR (last digits missing) I will use this model number: TFX25ZRBWW
You can download and owners manual here by entering your model number:
If you just enter TFX25CR you will see several manuals

I checked several parts sites and GE. This unit from what I can tell does NOT have a water filter. You can however install an external in line filter such as this one:

These filters often do not come with connecting hardware that has to be purchased separately.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Water filter pops out when dispenser pad is pushed

I assume you mean the water dispenser here. Most likely, the filter is not seated properly, and the change in line pressure when you push the dispenser pad is popping the filter out of place. You didn't specify the refrigerator, so there are a couple of generic things to try:
  1. There are a couple of water filter types - the push-in-and-click kind, and the push-in-and-turn kind. If it's the push-and-click kind, then there's probably a button next to it. Turn off the water to the line (probably under your sink), push the button to eject the filter, make sure that the o-rings are in place on the end that's inserted. If the filter has been in there for years, probably best to replace it, it's probably clogged but good. Anyhow, insert and eject the filter 4 or 5 times, make sure it feels like it's seating properly.
The push-and-turn ones often have some cap that blends in with the molding of the fridge. Make sure the cap in attached to the top of the filter , insert, and make sure you do the full quarter turn to lock it in place. You should not be able to pull it backwards at this point. Turn it back and forth a couple of times. it should be stiff, but not feel mechanically impeded or jammed. There could be dust bunnies or other floor debris that got pushed in at a previous filter swap jamming things up in there. A crevice tool on the vacuum might help clear debris if it's there (don't do this if water is actually flowing out of the filter spigot )

Try it now (remember to turn the water back on) , that should hopefully fix the issue.

If not, the next generic things to try are:
  1. Replace the filter.
  2. See if the dispenser works without the filter in place. Many fridges have a bypass so that a filter in mid-replacement won't flood the kitchen. If things run ok, try running a couple of gallons of water through. A lot of fridges give you cold water by having a big coil of tubing in the fridge compartment, probably under/behind the vegetable bins. There's the content of a couple of glasses of water in the line, so it's being chilled in the line. If they get clogged, or have some organic gack growing in them, then there'll be more back pressure on the filter when the wall pressure tries to push water through the coil. If things still flow, try running a few gallons of water through the line to see if things will start flowing better. That may clear it up.
If the new filter is still being ejected after running a lot of water through, probably time to get an appliance specialist involved.

Good Luck!

How to find serial #


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You do not need a serial number. The serial number is only specific to that unit.

Go into the following web site. Type in your model numbers above. You will get a list of 24 refrigerators that start with those numbers.

The 24 in the number means your unit is 24 cubic foot.

The evaperator for the drip under the bottom of the unit is probably dirty or has gone bad. Pull the fridge out and look under the bottom and you should see a pan with a coil above it. Clean the coil and the pan. If this does not correct the problem, then a new coil is in order. Also vacuum the back of the fridg if it has exposed coils to increase efficiency.

How the water purification process works?

The water purification process in not vey one sided. The purification process contains many steps. The steps that need to be progressed depend on the kind of impurities that are found in the water. This can differ very much for different types of water.

How does a mechanical aquarium filter work?

A mechanical filtration system works by moving water through some kind of material that catches the solids and removes them from the water. The major problem with this type of filtration device is that although it is capable of removing extremely small particles, they eventually clog the filter. Essentially, the more effective the filter is at catching small particles, the more often you will have to clean the filter.

The filter indicator is red do u need to buy a new filter if so where can i buy it from and also how and where can i get someone to fix it

I don't know what kind of air conditioner, but I am assuming a window type.
I would turn off or unplug ac unit and remove the front cover. it should just pull off with a little effort and there should be a washable filter in front. just wash it out and get all water you can and reinstall it. there may be some newer styles out there, but this is the only kind I have seen.

Which glue to reattach chromed plastic to plastic?

Use old fashioned model cement. Not the child safe type. The old type will melt the styrene to the styrene. The new stuff only fills the gap but never really makes a good bond.

I have Whirlpool model:EDSCHQXKQ02 . Does that fridge have water filter that I have to change or I have to install it? Thanks!

If you have a filter that needs to be changed it would be in the fresh food section, usually near the top (it is usually clearly marked) or near the floor in the front which looks kind of like a dial. You usually don't have to turn the water off to replace these types.
If you don't have that any where, and you want a filter, you can buy a kit at hardware store and install it on the water supply line.
