Product Overview

This HDX replacement refrigerator water filter fits in place of GE MWF contains a compressed carbon block which provides tremendous capacity to remove and/or reduce impurities and sediment that may be present in your drinking water. The carbon block has millions of active sites on its surface and within the structure which can absorb impurities like a sponge, and can absorb and hold other types of impurities on its surface like a magnet. Additionally, this filter can catalytically breakdown other impurities very similar to the way a catalytic converter works in your automobile. These processes ensure that you are getting the cleanest and best tasting water possible. This economical filter will provide you with fresh and clean tasting water and ice cubes. Twin Value pack saves time and money.

Customer Questions & Answers

after one week of use this filter is still discharging chacoal fines into the drinking water. defective filter?

Asked by: Anonymous
These filters appear to be defective. We've had ours installed for weeks now and sometimes the water appears clear and other times I see particulate matter. Then, this morning, this nasty hair-ball looking thing came out in my lemonade. Disgusting and awful.

How long should the filter last?

I installed the filter on 11-23-14. After three months we noticed a decrease in flow. It is now the forth month and I have to change it as it is too slow to fill a glass. We are a two person household with only one person using it. The GE filter I used to buy lasted well over a year.
Asked by: pjwilm
On average it should last six months depending on water quality. If you are on a well, any change in the water table will cause more sediment/turbidity into the house. On a public water system, if there has been any activity with underground utilities the vibration will cause particles to break off the inside lining of the water lines and travel through out the nearby area. You may notice at times that the water company opens up hydrants and lets them run to help flush the system especially after any nearby road work. You may also want to check the aerator screens at your faucets to see if they also are getting clogged. Hope this helps.

Customer Reviews

FMG-1 Refrigerator Replacement Filter Fits GE MWF (Value Pack) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 239.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing. We purchased our refrigerator from the Thomaston, Ga store and have been purchasing the filters from the same store. Now this store will not stock the filters any more. The refrigerator is going on its second year with us. What is wrong with that picture.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work Bought the two pack for my almost new GE refrigerator. This is the first time I installed a new filter. I thought it was a good deal compared to the GE brand. The HD staff person confirmed it was the correct replacement based on the model # I gave her. Installed it but no water. I reinstalled at least 6 times but no luck. Installed the old GE filter and it worked fine. I am suspecting that GE may have made some change on the newer models that prevents these from working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flow Rate The Same as GE - If Installed According to Arrows on Filter At the writing of this review, the most helpful reviews indicate that the flow rate of water through these filters is 1/2 that of the original GE filters. This left me a bit nervous about trying this filter, but I reasoned that I could always return it. I measured the flow rate of the "original" "Water Sentinel WSG-1" at one (1) ounce (oz.) per second (or 1 cup every eight seconds). After removing the WSG-1, I removed the stopper from one of the two HDX filters, and then inserted it in the receiving tube. I did so without paying any attention to the markings on the HDX filter, that indicate where to start and where to turn to (two arrows on the label). I then tried running water through the new filter, an noticed that the flow rate was almost 1/2 that of the WSG-1...about one cup every 16 seconds. The flow was also intermittent, which caused the stream to spurt every two seconds. Before throwing in the towel, I removed the HDX filter. A lot of pressure had built up, so the filter came off with a bit of a "poof", along with a black rubber gasket and some water. I reseated the rubber gasket - by feel, not by sight - and then noticed the installation-arrows on the HDX label. After reinserting the HDX filter - starting at the "start" arrow, and then turning about one quarter turn to the "lock" arrow. I retested the flow rate. The water was now flowing as good as the old WSG-1...about 1 cup every eight seconds. The flow rate was also even, with no spurting. The $64,000 question: does it filter as good as the old WSG-1? Well, I have no good ideas about how to test the filtration of the HDX, or any other filter for that matter. I am also uncertain as to the lifetime of this filter compared to any other. It does seem that the flow rate problems mentioned in other reviews might be solved by reseating the HDX filter according to the markings on the label. If I notice any diminished filtering with the HDX, I will update this review or add another, warning off potential buyers. Otherwise this seems like a good product, especially given that it is half the price of the GE brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An economical replacement I read the reviews regarding this filter application and thought there just had to be something missing since I experienced the water spary as well. Well, there was! When using this filter, there is a plastic plug that keeps the filter clean for shipping and storage but MORE IMPORTANTLY retains an all critical o-ring seal. Here's what you do: 1) Remove the old filter from your refrigerator 2) Remove the new HDX filter from the package 3) Remove the clear plastic plug from the top of the filter LEAVING THE QUARTER SIZED O-RING IN PLACE in the filter body 4) Place filter in the mount inside the refigerator and turn until it stops (turn the water on if it was turned off, turning off the water is NOT necessary by the way) 5) Run several glasses of water to fill and clear the filter 6) Enjoy clear, clean water and ice cubes

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great OEM Replacement I'm shocked at how much GE still charges for their OEM water filter replacements. It's no wonder that consumers are looking elsewhere for 3rd party choices. I'm glad I did my research and found this replacement. I'm basically getting 2 filters for the price of one GE filter. I would definitely recommend this filter! I have an older GE fridge so I have an adapter that converts this filter to a compatible installation. It took about 2 minutes to install this new filter and maybe another 10 minutes to properly water cycle it. Super simple install for me. Without shutting the water off (my fridge has auto water shutoff for filter replacement), a simple twist and a slight tug downward released the old filter. Another twist to remove the old filter from the adapter. I washed the adapter to make sure all was clean before preforming those steps in reverse to instal the new HDX filter. TIP: I WROTE TODAY'S DATE ON THE NEW FILTER LABEL WITH PERMANENT FELT PEN BEFORE INSTALLATION SO I REMEMBER WHEN I INSTALLED IT. The post installation behavior frightened me a little. On first attempt to draw water it took about 30 seconds before water started spluttering in the cup. Then came some excessive air pressure and spraying of water. I would say about 15 seconds of this and then water started to flow continuously in my cup. Then, the most bizarre thing, the cup started filling up with gray/black water! I must have had about 5-7 cups full of dark fluid. I read somewhere that you are suppose to flow over a gallon of water through the filter prior to drinking, so I continued to fill and dump cups. I would say somewhere around 10 cups it was becoming clear and by the 15-20 cup it was perfectly clear. During the entire installation process, I had my fridge door open to make sure there were no leaks. I not once had a leak and toward the beginning and cycling process you could definitely hear the water slushing and rushing the filter, however after the cycling it has a normal water flow sound. I did some flow comparisons too. I was very over due for a replacement but my old filter filled my red cup in 46 seconds. After replacing the old one with a new HDX filter, it only took 23 seconds to fill my red cup. Now that's impressive! I've posted a few photos to show the filter in place in my fridge, which allows you to see the adapter between the fridge housing and the new HDX filter. And I also have a picture of the gray/black water and clear water after cycling. Hope this review helps someone else going through the same ordeal. Cheers!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Filter Failed to work, but Home Depot backed up the product. I used this filter as an alternative to the high priced GE filter and it seemed to work well. I bought a twin pack but when installed it did not pass any water. I tried the second filter and it to did not work. After multiple calls to the filter manufacture, and other attempts at trouble shooting, I had a repair guy come out, thinking that it would be unlikely that two filters would fail after others had worked. He put a GE filter on and everything started working again. I no longer use any of the cheaper alternatives and only GE filters. I took my receipts to HD and they refunded my money and gave me a new GE filter free of charge. This did not cover my total outlay, but it shows HD is will to work with their customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FMG Refrigerator Water Filters We have a GE refrig. bought it new 3 years ago at Home Depot when we remodled our kitchen. Its a double door 25 cu ft. We thought only the GE filters were best for it, but when we needed to change our filters a few times back about a year ago one of the floor people at the H.D. store in the appl. dept. told us to try FMG replacements. They were alot cheaper and better too. We bought a set of 2 and I could not put in so many words here how much better the water tasted with this brand of filters. I will never use GE filters again cause the water had a stale taste to it and I just thought maybe it was the way it should taste. NOT SO !! I highly recommened this FMG Filter instead and you will love the better water teste and the lower price too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Water flow reduced by 1/2 vs GE filter New filter fit fine but water flow was only about 1/2 the flow out of the GE filter. Returned to store and purchased GE filter. Thought I could save some money but I guess as usual you get what you pay for.
