I have installed this and water will no longer come out through the water and ice dispenser on the front of the door. I have held the water spigot open for an extended period of time thinking the filter had to fill up first but that didn't seem to to work either. I also reinstalled it and still the problem exists. What could be the problem?

Said GE has a patent on the design of the top of the filter that screws into the refrig valve. He showed me the two side by side, and indeed, the genuine part is slightly different. Also doesn't use O rings.

Hello Baffled by Water,
After reviewing several of the answers from the community below, several of the responses were great insight. The first thing that we would suggest, would be to re-install your old filter and see if you get water flow through that filter. If you are getting water using that filter, then we are able to determine that there must be an issue with the new filter you are trying to install. At that time, since you have already mentioned that you are not getting water flow from the new filter, I would recommend for you to ensure that the O-ring is in place properly on the filter, then, submerge the filter in water to release any air bubbles the filter may have that could have occurred during manufacturing and then try to re-install it. If this still does not resolve the issue, we would always recommend for you to contact our Customer Service Team at 1-855-849-3589 Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm PST for further assistance.If you are NOT getting any water flow through the OLD filter that you are trying to replace, then we know it is an issue with your refrigerator. Your water lines may be turned off, blocked or frozen. You would have to inspect your refrigerator to resolve the issue. We hope that you were able to resolve your issue and get great tasting water with the assistance of the fellow community responses I have read on here. We wish we could have responded in a more timely manner to assist you at your time in need. Thank you for purchasing the HDX filter and hope that since then you have been satisfied with the filter.
Thank you,
Julie - Customer Service Team

Today, I aligned the arrows as the picture indicates and the water still is working.
The manual says up to 24 hours before ice is started to be made. So far no ice in the ice tray. My only concern since I see no ice, is that there is a solid piece of ice in the white tray where the water tube comes out in the upper left hand back wall of freezer. I am wondering if this will affect water flow to the ice cube maker. I called tech support and the told me they have no online tech support. This is going to be a real tough one to take apart since the bottom drawer gets in the way when opened and to work on the floor is tough....
Going back to GE filters. I just have to locate where to buy since Home Depot doesn't carry them, only their brand. Read Less

Answer: 
Try taking it out and seeing if there is some kind of plastic cap that is blocking the inlet. Also try blowing in the center hole, you should feel air coming out of the wider hole. Lastly, re-install your old filter and see if it still works; if it doesn't then something got up into the filter hole. Try and get it out. If that doesn't work, call the manufacturer. They will get to the bottom of this.

Answer: 
Does it still make ice? all water to the fridge is thru this filter so if you have ice, the filter is working. Someone reported that sometimes the old O-ring stays in the holder and can cause low to no water at the door. Check and make sure the old o-ring is out. You may also have a faulty door sensor. My fridge wont supply water unless both doors are closed.

Clear Black Carbon After Installation?

This question is from FMG Replacement Refrigerator Water Filter for GE Refrigerator
Asked by
South FL
Read all my Q&A
October 25, 2014
I just purchased this HDX water filter and after installing it, I reseted the warning light and tried getting some water out the fridge.

The water flowed great, but I noticed the cup full of black carbon particles.
I then poured out 1 gallon of water. The water cleared up after the first 1 liter but it's still not 100% clear.

After I pour the water into the glass, I see bubbles forming in the water, but again it's not clear.

What is the process after installing the filter?
How much water must I pour out until it's clear and safe to use?
Is the the carbon coming out normal when installing the filter at first?

I don't quite trust the water filter at the moment.

Thanks for the help.

Answer: 
The instructions that came with the filter does not mention what chemicals this filter will remove from the drinking water. I would recommend calling HDX customer service at 1-855-849-3589.

Answer: 
Hi King Zeus, the manufacture stated that this model is manufactured to the OEM specs of GE. At this time there is not a specific list of all the substances that this filter removes or reduces.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Filter This is a replacement for the GE MWF cartridge. This filter is shorter than the GE filter, which gives you approx. another inch of shelf space if you need to raise the shelf. Like others have stated, when you remove the filter from the package, remove the plastic plug from the top of the filter and fill the filter with water (prime it) before you install it. Installation is literally a quarter turn to the right. After installation, run approx. 1-1/2 gallons of water through it. After a gallon, I noticed my water was crystal clear. The flow rate on mine was back to normal after 1/2 gallon of flushing. Appears to be a good replacement for the GE model. I just installed it so I can't comment on the durability or longevity of the filter, but I've had good success with other HDX products, and the package also states... Made in USA! February 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Replacement filter available from Home Depot I am very pleased with my new GE Replacement Filter. It fit perfect, and was very easy to change. It took less than 3-4 minutes to make sure I had properly installed the new filter. Probably took more time to empty the top shelf of food, that it took to install the filter. The instruction booklet gave perfect, easy to understand directions all the way through. Just a little advice for future customers, you really do have to remove about 1-1 1/2 gallons of water via the new filter. The advantages are that it conditions the filtering device, and also removes any impurities left behind by the old filter, such as carbon settlement that occurs during the shipping process. This only takes about 3 minutes to flush the filter. I am very pleased with the new filter, and would highly recommend it to everyone who needs a replacement filter. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great price! Fits just like the original GE MWF filter, and installs just as easy. July 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Water filter I suppose It is an OK filter but it is way too expensive for what it is. Come on it is a water filter. Use some common sense. Do I recomended it. Do I have a choice? June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap, good quality replacement filter I was looking for a cheaper alternative to the expensive GE brand replacement water filters for my refrigerator and this is a good choice. It replaced my GE MWF style filter. It was easy to install and provides good flow of water to the refrigerator water spout. The only problem I encountered was that when I removed the old filter, there was an attachment that was removed also that I originally threw away with the old filter, but quickly realized that the new filter could not be installed without the attachment. The instructions do not mention anything about the attachment, but it easily came off the old filter and attached to the new filter and no other problems with installation. Very simple. July 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fresh Spring Waer! This filter makes the water taste like fresh spring water! You have to tug really hard to pull it out and then need to make sure it is firmly pushed in and that the two rubber o rings are secured in place as well. Once you have it firmly in place, run several glasses of water through to clean out the line. Also make sure you have done this before you create any ice. October 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quick & Easy, A better size The filter arrive well packaged with good instructions. It was very easy to to install the HDX on our GE Profile fridge. I followed the instructions and it did not leak a drop. I then flushed the air and any carbon fines from the tank by dispensing water as instructed. It now has the same flow, taste and clarity that my GE filters have given me. I like the design of the HDX better because it is shorter than the GE filter. As you can see in the pictures the GE is a tight fit in the Profile unit we have because of the glass shelf. The lower profile HDX gave me more room for installation. June 17, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HGX FMG-1 Filter Easy to install. After 4 months of use the refrigerator started to leak. The ultimate problem was a defect in the HGX FMG_1 filter. The internal element broke down and some sealant clogged the system and backed up into the water supply causing the ice maker to breakdown. I have the bad filter, sample of the particles from inside the filter and excess particle to prove the item is defective. Please contact me regarding issue. May 11, 2016
