I have a GE refrigerator and order filter replacement parts…

Customer Question
I have a GE...

I have a GE refrigerator and order filter replacement parts from you. I replaced one a few days ago and after purging the line, I filled a water bottle and then when returning for another, The filtered water stopped completely. I took the new water filter off, shook it quite a few times.. Rinsed it touroughly, and still no go. What can I try? I don't want to call repair. It is easier and cheaper to switch to a manual filtering system if needed. Do I have any options?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

One moment please.....

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Hello, I want to cover a few things before we begin to make this go smooth on mine and your end. First there is a delay in responses this is not Skype or texting so please only reply after you receive a reply from me. Please do not reply multiple times with”hello?? where are you?? what's going on etc..... that will only delay a response even further as this has to travel through the server and site to get to me and there is more than one question going on so please be patient if you can not do that just let me know. Secondly, this is not a free service, I work on the site and can not work for free just like you likely do not work for free so please keep that in mind and use the rating system when done to credit my time. Third, the site will send you offers for phone calls subscriptions etc... That is not me sending you the information even though it may appear that way. You can accept that if you want to, but please do not get mad at me for any offer sent to you by the site. Lastly I need the make and model of the appliance, check the frame edges with the door,lid,drawer open on the unit. The models typically start with 3-4 letters unless it is a Kenmore product. Please post that if you have not and lets begin.

I can call you now if needed. If no water comes out of the dispenser did you order a OEM filter?

Refrigerators come with the filter installed , but they also send a " by-pass " fitting that screws in in place of the filter. Hopefully you still have this and install it . If you get water then you know the new filter is the problem.
