It sounds like there is quite a bit of sediment in the water. The filter you are using may be a very fine micron 5-10. Try using a 30-50 micron filter.

Ge smartwater wholehouse waterfilter main housing failed flooded house

Why did it fail? How did it fail? Was it the plumbing that failed? Replace it with a Pentair filter housing, 10" housing, 20" housing or Big Blue housing and make sure it is plumbed in properly. It is very unusual for a filter housing to fail unless it freezes up.

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.

Canisters on my ge smart water filtration system gxsv10c model are stuck tight. How do i get them open

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.

I have a whole house water filter that uses a 30 micron FXHSC filter. the last two filters have come apart and sent fiber through the water lines in the house

Hi,
I would shop around for a different water filter supplier...there is no reason ofr that happening unless you are not changing the filters regularly...like once a month...
most filters are a standard size and it should be easy to get them somewhere else...

To replace the filter cartridge. Do the following;

system, shut it off.
2 Close the intake valve before your filter system.
3.To relieve the pressure, open the faucet after your
filter system. Any of your faucet for that matter.
4.Once the pressure is relieved, you can of course
replace the the filter cartridge.

Low water pressure is diminished after replaced 2 filters in a month. plumber tested to see if water is fully flowing.

Does this mean that you are now having the right pressure? Since the filters are changed, water should
now flow. Is it all systems go?, that is assuming that
your pipelines are not clogged.

I was changing my filter in the ge filtration system, and it says to turn off the water and press the red button. Then it says to unscrew the filter take the old one out and clean the filtrstion system...

The red button is a pressure relieve valve. If the system is leaking from the valve, try pushing the valve up from the underside of the cap where the valve is located. If this does not work the housing needs to be replaced. You do not have to replace this with a name brand like GE. All you need to do is make sure the housing that you are purchasing is the same size.
