            A:  Hi there! The RPWFE filter does not remove fluoride. The only filter that will reduce fluoride in water can be found in some Reverse Osmosis filtration systems. Let us know if you have any more questions. - John@GEA

                Q:how do you reset
                by|Jun 7, 2023
                3 Answers
                Answer This Question

                A:  On my GE refrigerator, I don't need to reset anything. Once you close up the new filter, the light/notification on the front of the fridge goes off.

                by|Jun 14, 2023

                  A:  Make sure the old one is totally out of the carrier before you pull it straight out. Line up the new one into the socket and it’ll click. Afterwards, make sure you flush out 1 gallon of water because the charcoal will need to clear out from the new one. Also make sure, you dump out the new ice made by the new filter before using.

                        Hello there - we're sorry to know that your filter light on your unit has not turned off. We recommend making sure that the filter is properly aligned with the cartridge holder, and that the filter is fully seated in the holder. If you believe your situation to be abnormal, we recommend scheduling a service appointment for one of our technicians to assess your unit. You can schedule an appointment by calling us at 1-800-432-2737, or online on our GE Appliances website. You can also reach out to us once more if there are other questions or concerns. Take care. - Pablo@GEA GE_Appliances

                          Terrible design easy to damage
                          Followed the instructions from A-Z. Had no problem removing and putting back the existing cartridge. This one though was impossible to mount. The design is horrible. There is supposed to be mating features on the cartridge and the slot on the fridge. Instead you play a guessing game to figure out the best angle to insert the cartridge!

                                I put no for recommendation knowing you have to but because of filter chip. Filter is to expensive compared to third party filters. GE chipped the filter so, fridge has to read it to operate. GE should reduce the cost!

                                Water filter rip-off
                                I used to buy all GE appliances but now I won’t. The filter for my refrigerator is over $50! This GE trying to be greedy. Isn’t it enough that we buy your expensive products? Why ruin it by forcing a very expensive filter on top of it. Someone will come up with a knockoff and you will be out the extra cash for this. It is not necessary to gouge your consumers. Think about it!! You have created a lot of best press and unsatisfied customers. You will notice sales will stop at some point.

                                  Doesnt fit right
                                  The original filter had grooves or teeth on both sides the store bought filters do not have teeth so the RPWFE filters dont seem to work on my fridge GFE28GMKBES. I've waisted so much money thinking I had a knock off filter or a bad filter. I can't seem to get a strong flow only a trickle.
