Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW

1 Answer

GXRM 10 GBL 02 under the sink RO water filter - Replaced all three filters and now water does not fill up the reserve tank. After several hours, the water only flows for about 20 seconds before running out. I can hear the trickly off into the drain from the RO filter. Did I switch lines from the RO filter cartidge when I replaced the Flow Control and screen on the one 1/4" tubing line? Am I supposed to bleed air out somewhere?

No on the air bleed out, probably so on the water line reversed suspicion

6 stage ro system under counter style will not stop draining or producing ro water at all I removed unit changed 3 pre filters and a post polisher now I gotta problem How long will this unit run to fill...

If the RO is not shutting off and there is no water from tank there are several things to check.
1. The product water tank is probably low on air. The tank may be full but no water will come out. Put enough air in tank to force out all the water then reset air pre-charge to 7psi for 3 gallon tank.
2. The capillary tube / check valve of RO system is bad. This puts back pressure on membrane to help create water.
3. The Automatic shutoff is not working, causing the unit to run constantly.
I would have to know what model RO it is to narrow down the problem further.
Depending on the Membrane production 10, 25 gpd, etc. and the TDS of water it may take 24 hrs to fill the tank.

I changed all filters as per manual and cant get any water on the faucet. Pressure at storage tank is good at 7psi. But i got water after removing the RO filter. Any idea what would be the root cause?...

Check the capillary tube to make sure it is not plugged. This will restrict the flow from membrane. Also make sure the seal for membrane is not damaged. It takes several hours to refill the RO tank if it is empty.

I have a Culligan AC 30 aqua-cleer drinking water system;after changing the particle filter and the carbonfilter , the storage tank does not fill.I have pumped air in it to pressure 0,7 bar.

When you put air in the tank did you make sure all the water was out of tank? In a three gallon tank there should be 7 lbs of air, 10 gallon 10 lbs of air.
There can be many reasons for no water in tank.
1. Bad bladder in holding tank. No back pressure on membrane (all water going to drain)
2. Faulty membrane (all the water going to drain)
3. Bad capillary tube (all the water going to drain)
4. Plugged check valve at top of membrane (no water)
5. Faulty water feed valve (piercing valve)
6. Fines from post carbon filter have plugged up the manifold (head) of RO unit.
7. Bad valve on RO tank
8. Plugged drain line

It is quite common to loose air pressure in the RO over time. At times the tank will be full of water but will not have enough air pressure to push water out. Take the tank of drain as much water as possible, for 3 gallon tank bring pressure in tank to 7psi, for 10 gallon tank pressure should be 10psi.

Just installed aqua/cleer reverse osmosis system and the water doesn't seem to be going into the holding tank, however there is water that is coming out from the tap.

Make sure all the lines are hooked up correctly. It is going to take 3-8 hours to fill a 3 gallon RO storage tank. It depends on the capacity of the membrane (IE: 14, 20, 30, 50 or 75 gpd). It also depends on the TDS of the water. Water that has high TDS 500+ppm will take longer to produce product water than TDS of 100ppm. Check the pressure in the RO tank. When empty (In a 3 gallon tank) there should be 7psi pressure. A ten gallon tank takes 10psi. If it needs air you can use a bicycle pump to add appropriate air. Make sure the tank valve is turned off when adding air.
Do not use the RO faucet for several hours to allow tank to fill up. Also you should dump the first couple tanks of RO water to make sure any carbon fines are rinsed out.

The tank will not fill up, air pressure is good in tank

There are several things to look for here.
1. Turn the feed valve off. Take the product line off the RO tank (shut the tank valve off first), turn
the feed valve back on and see if water is coming out the product line to RO tank
2. Make sure the feed valve is supplying water. If it's a piercing valve they can get plugged with debris.
3. Make sure there is water going to the drain
4. If the filters were just replaced, remove them, inspect them thoroughly and re-install
5. In an empty 3 gallon RO tank there should be 7 psi pressure. If there is too much pressure it will
prevent the tank from filling up.
6. Make sure there are no kinks in any of the RO lines.

Just replaced particulate, activated carbon and polishing filters. Turned water supply back on, made sure polishing filter in properly as to flow. Allowed about three hours to fill tank. When I turned...

Is this an RO system or just filtration? If so, does the membrane need replacing and/or is the GPD capacity on the membrane compatible with the system?
Another thing to look your flow rate this low at a constant rate (perhaps taking 3 hours to accumulate 30 secs worth of water)? What are the micron ratings of the filters you are using? If they are too low or at the submicron level, this could massively reduce flow.
One more're only using one tank right? Because throwing a couple inline with each other with different pressures and capacities will also do this...

Our R-04 under sink water holding tank, for our culligan water filtration system got drained, and the pressure is now gone and it won't fill up on it's own. We had a leak, fixed it, but now need help...

The RO tank will still fill up even without any pressure it just won't push any water out. If the RO tank lost pressure and it is a sealed tank, it should be replaced. The bladder is bad.
A 3 gallon tank should have 7psi pre-charge pressure, 10 gallon 10psi. There must not be any water in tank to set the pre-charge pressure.
If the RO tank is not filling up then there is another problem.

I am assuming based on your description that the system you have is a reverse osmosis system. If this is true, you most likely need to recharge the air pressure in your RO storage tank. I have included step-by-step instructions below. If you find that your tank is not holding air or the tank will not empty completely, the bladder inside the tank may be broken and the tank will need to be replaced. I have included a link to our selection of RO tanks as well. To recharge the tank you will need a bicycle tire pump and a tire gauge that will be capable of reading below 10 psi. If you don’t have one that reads in single psi increments, then a meter that starts at 5 psi will work.

1) Close the cold water feed valve (if you can’t locate this on your system, you may be able to turn off the cold water to your sink)
2) With the RO tank valve on, locate the valve stem on the bottom or side of the tank. (this will look like the air stem on a bicycle or car tire)
3) Remove the stem cap.
4) Drain all water out of tank through open RO faucet into sink. (Continue to leave the RO
faucet open throughout the entire procedure)
5) If the current tank pressure doesn’t empty the tank, apply tire pump to valve stem
and pump a few times. Flow will increase and then gradually decrease as
pressure equalizes. Do not overcharge the bladder during this procedure.
6) Repeat step #4 and #5 until tank is completely empty. (Tank is empty when additional
pumping produces no more water)
7) At this point, adjust EMPTY tank to exactly 7psi. (Gauge reading midway between 5
& 10psi is sufficient)
8) Turn off RO faucet.
9) Replace cap on valve stem
10) Open cold water feed valve.
11) The water is useable immediately; however, tank will take a few hours to completely fill.

Water won't flow from GE Smart Water under-sink RO water filter

Disconnect the water pressure tank making sure the end the line hooks up to is open. The tank should be relatively light, and if you shake it you should not hear any water. If you hear water in it, or it feels heavy, that means the bladder inside the tank has failed. Replace the tank with a new one, and set the pressure on the bicycle type valve at 8 PSI before you connect the tank up to the water line.
