GE Refrigerator Model and Water Filter Model


Keep in mind that there might be variations in water filter compatibility across different models or production years. Always double-check with your refrigerator’s manual or the manufacturer’s website for the most accurate information.

Changing the Water Filter in GE Refrigerator

Step 1: Locate the Water Filter

In most GE Adora refrigerator models, the water filter is located in the upper right corner of the fresh food compartment. It is typically housed inside a plastic cover. To access the filter, you may need to remove the top shelf to create enough space to work comfortably.

Step 2: Remove the Old Filter

Before removing the old filter, turn off the refrigerator’s water supply. This can usually be done by locating the water shut-off valve behind the refrigerator or under the sink and turning it clockwise. Next, open the filter cover by pressing the tab or button on the cover. Gently twist the old filter counterclockwise approximately a quarter-turn until it disengages from the filter housing. Carefully pull the filter out and discard it.

Step 3: Install the New Filter

Take the new water filter out of its packaging and remove any protective caps or seals. Align the filter’s tabs or notches with the filter housing and insert the filter into the housing. Rotate the filter clockwise until it clicks or locks into place. Close the filter cover.

Step 4: Flush the New Filter

Turn the water supply back on by turning the shut-off valve counterclockwise. Run water through the dispenser for at least three minutes (or approximately two gallons) to flush the new filter and remove any air or debris trapped in the system. This step is essential to ensure the proper functioning of your refrigerator’s water dispenser and ice maker.

Step 5: Reset the Filter Indicator

To reset the filter indicator on your GE Adora refrigerator, press and hold the “Reset Filter” button (or a similar button, depending on your model) on the refrigerator’s control panel for three seconds. This will reset the filter change reminder and help you keep track of when your next filter change is due.


Changing the water filter in your GE Adora refrigerator is a simple yet essential maintenance task to ensure clean and fresh water for you and your family. By following the steps outlined in this Refrigerator Repair Blog, you can easily replace your refrigerator’s water filter and maintain optimal water quality and flow. Remember to change the filter every six months or as recommended by the manufacturer to ensure the best performance of your refrigerator.
