I don't see why it wouldn't. Ours is mounted under the kitchen sink and goes through a line to the refrigerator!

I was told I need a replacement filter for my ice maker, and to buy a 1/2" one? Does this product fit the bill?

Asked by: karenjos
This answer doesn't make much sense: Your ice Maker needs a particular quality filter, and one "half size" is only going to last half as long if it even meets the required standards of pressure, filtration, and fit. Get the filter recommended by your ice maker. Manuals are available online at the mfg website if you can't find your original.

In-Line Refrigerator/Icemaker Replacement Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 85.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Setup without Quick Connectors These GXRTQR Inline water filters can be connected to your refrigerator water line even without the quick connectors. This often confuses purchasers who are buying this item for the first time, since the mating connector to the quick connectors are not what you find on the back of most refrigerators. Fear not, with a few adapters and some hose, you can quickly adapt your refrigerator's water feed line to use these excellent water filters with ease. Using pliers or a wrench you can unscrew the 'quick connector' ends from this water filter, which leaves you with a threaded 1/4" OD compression connector on each end. On your refrigerator side, most expect a normal 1/4" inner diameter connector. So you'll want to get a short 1/4" to 1/4" hose, like SKU # 723666. Now you'll need an adapter to screw into the water filter to match up to the 1/4" connector on the hose to the 1/4" OD compression connector on the water filter. The WATTS adapter SKU # 544574 works perfectly. Teflon tape the larger end and screw into the 'water out' side of the filter. Then connect the short 1/4" to 1/4" hose (the SKU # 723666) to the other end of the adapter. Assuming you already had water going directly to the refrigerator without any filter, now its just a matter of putting a second SKU # 544574 adapter on the 'water in' side of the filter (again with teflon tape) and then screwing your existing water line into the adapter. If you're installing a water line for the first time, the adapter you choose will be dependent on the type of water line you're installing. If you're using copper or plastic tubing (I recommend copper) then the spare parts that come with the SKU # 544574 adapter can be used to terminate the water line in a conventional 1/4" inner diameter connector that will fit the adapter just perfectly. Tighten connections, slowly turn on the water and check for leaks. Once all is good, you'll have a solid setup that can be easily unscrewed from the water filter every 6 months or so when you want to replace your filter. Next time you're in the store, thank the guys working in the plumbing department who figure out all these details so you don't have to!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ice made with filtered water tastes great My new refrigerator has an ice maker but no filter. The ice tasted awful. The appliance store suggested adding a water filter. After finding the installation directions given by "HomeownersHelper," I purchased the filter & recommended attachment supplies. The directions were easy to follow & worked beautifully. The only change to them I made was to include a step of hooking up the wall line 1st, then running water through the filter several times (per the GE filter's instructions), then attaching the filter's small line to the refrigerator. Also, to secure the filter to the refrigerator, I tied a small bungee cord to it & hung the hooks on 2 Command adhesive hooks applied to the refrigerator back. Once in use the filtered water ice cubes tasted great in less than 24 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GE Icemaker Filter is an Excellent Value I have been using these GE ice maker filters for at least 5 to 10 years. The filters are used on the ice maker water line. I have never noticed a discoloration or odd taste to my ice while using these filters, even when I have gone as long as 9 or 10 months which is over the suggested replacement time of 6 months. The quick detach feature makes replacing the filters quick and easy. Do follow the instructions about flushing the filter. I have been satisfied with this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GE inline water filter This product appears to be replaced by a newer version with different connectors. I disagree that the newer model is better, especially if you are replacing an existing one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Depot now offering GXRTQR compatible filters I've been using the GE GXRTQR filter for years and pleased with the value/performance. Disappointed to learn Home Depot discontinued selling this item but recently discovered they are offering a substitute model by HDX that utilizes the same quick connect/disconnect system as the OEM GE Filter. In fact the HDX packaging specifically states "This filter fits in place of GE model GXRTQR on the bottom of the package. HDX brand, "Inline Icemaker Filter". Model # HDXIR22. It's reasonably priced and currently a stock item at Home Depot. A word of caution, the HDX filter is about a 1/4 " longer than the GE filter. If you have flexible water lines, connecting the HDX filter should not present a problem as was the case for me. Just installed my filter using the existing GE quick connect fittings on my water lines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sells but Doesn't Stock Bought originals in store. Now they don't stock them so have to order on-line then wait for it to be delivered to your home or store. Quicker if delivered to store for some reason....which I don't understand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from In-Line Refrigerator/Icemaker Replacement Filter by GE is easy to replace. I was shopping the internet and it looked to me that this filter is being phased out and replaced with similar product. Assuming I would have to rework the supply lines again, I bought a couple of spares just because this current filter is so easy to replace. I have a pretty decent potable water supply and the filters last me about 12 months before the carbon fiber gets saturated and the water begins to smell like chlorine. I hope this filter remains available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from replacement filters bought on line I have been buying these replacement filters, for my refrigerator ice maker, for years at Home Depot. When I went to buy a replacement, at the store, it was no longer in stock. Therefore I went to the Home Depot web page, and the process of making this purchase on line was extremely easy.
