For refrigerators without built-in filters, works with most types of refrigerators
Enjoy clean, filtered water and ice from your refrigerator, even without a built-in water filter, with the new GE SmartWater Exterior Refrigerator and Icemaker Inline Filter System (GXRLQ).
The system works with most types of top-freezer and side-by-side refrigerators and is housed behind the refrigerator. Once installed, the filter is easy to change using its simple twist and lock mechanism. Turn off your icemaker before twisting to remove the old filter. Replace with a new GE Exterior Refrigerator/Icemaker Filter (GXRLQR) by inserting it into the manifold and twisting it to lock in place. Be sure to change your water filter after six months of use.
The manifold (filter head mount) contains a built-in auto water shutoff, so there’s no need to turn off the water supply when changing out the filter.
The water filter reduces sediment, chlorine taste and odor, lead and cysts in the water; leading to cleaner and tastier ice cubes from the refrigerator ice maker and better tasting water from your refrigerator’s dispenser.
The GE Exterior Refrigerator and Icemaker Inline Filter System contains all the necessary hardware for installation:
- water filter cartridge
- mounting screw
- mounting tape
- tube locking clip
- instruction manual
If you need to hook up or add a water line to your refrigerator, you will need a Copper Tube Refrigerator Water Supply Kit (8003RP).
