Hi, I found your comments on this forum and we are lazy too and didn't change our water filter for a few years until it stopped working. Have since changed the filter but not getting any water out the door. Did you ever get yours to work? If so, how?

1. Turn the incoming water off. 2. Open closest cold water faucet, let it run until no water. 3. Turn off outlet valve after filter. 4. Hold down red pressure relief button, until no water. 5. Unscrew filter bowl with filter bowl wrench (if you have one). If this does not work repeat steps 1-5 and turn the water off at well tank or water meter. Never tighten pre-filter with wrench, changethe o-ring every year and lubricate the o-ring every time filter is changed. RJ
These replacement filters (GXRLQR) are FLAWED straight out of the factory. The problem is in the 2 little "teeth" nubs that stick up near the center circle of the filter. When the filter is twisted and inserted, these teeth push up on a tiny black spring loaded valve in the body of the filter, alowing water to pass through up and out the spigot. The flaw is that the "nubs" are too short and do not push open the spring valve far enough, reducing flow to a semi-trickle, even with a brand new filter. GE seems to think this is not a problem. Solution=stick a $0.25 garden hose rubber washer in the top of the filter and screw it in. You may have to try a few times to get it to work and seat properly. When it works, you'll immediately get a nice super flow of water. Better than upgrading to a $200 filter system recommended by GE...
The common connection between the two starts at the water fill valve. I have found also that the filter (water) if clogged, will prevent water flow to both. Change the filter first, cheapest and eaisest.
