I just purchased a...

I just purchased a condo with GE refrigerator. I want to replace the water filter. The brand in there now is HDX and it says it is FMG-1. I cannot not seem to find that to replace, but there are lots of others. Do you know which one would be replace mine?

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

Let me look inside, but it would be 2005.

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

I can give you the model number if that helps

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

ok

The filter you need is part number MWFP for GE. Now there are lots of manufactures that makes this filter, so you can order from any brand you like. Discount filter is probably the least expensive option at about $8 a filter. Below is a link if you wanted to order them.
