I have GE profiel refrigerator and it has a replaceable water

Customer Question

I have GE profiel refrigerator and it has a replaceable water filter in the upper back right corner of teh refrigerator. Typically when the filter is old (approx. 6 months) the water flow is very low. Once teh filter is replaced the water flow is good again. This time it does not improve. The icemaker still works well, but the water flow is very low (it is good for about one second and then it flow slowly. I have tried another new filter and it is the same. Is there a repair for this?
