    Really difficult to install into my Opal 2.0 but overall improves the taste of the ice and give me the peace of mind that it’s not nasty

    Great for filtering... only downside is made the machine loud and i believe its causing it to work harder through the filtering system rather than the one it came with. And the filter reset does not work on the app. But all in all filter cubes are great

      Hello - Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Please be sure to follow the Filter Installation Instructions listed below to ensure the water filter is being installed properly:

      1.Remove the included screen from the ice machine. Make sure the filter is positioned with the "Fins" up.

      2. Using two right-hand fingers to hold the Fins, slide the nozzle end of the filter into the hole located at the back, left-hand side of the lower reservoir.

      3. Slide the base of the filter, where your fingers are located, so that it fits against the tab located towards the middle of the backside. Push down into the place to ensure the filter is properly assembled into the ice maker.

      To remove the water filter, twist the filter toward you and lift. We hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you need additional assistance. Warm regards. -Don@GEAppliances GE_Appliances

    I use my GE Opal Ice Maker daily (2x daily at least) and find I am switching out the filter once every 60 days I would say. It’s definitely not cheap but I love nugget ice and it’s a necessary item to maintain the cleanliness of the device

    Well basically this was a good buy the filter was easy to install and was small and neat, it also makes my ice quality a bit better taking away the sediments from my ice, But as you know nothing is perfect the time period these filter last in my option is too short, looking forward thou in ordering another set soon this is a good buy

    We have a soft water and a carbon filter system for our house but we do not have a reverse osmosis system at our sink so I decided to purchase this filter to help clean out any remaining particles and minerals. I didn't feel like using my fridge water due to the amount of time it takes to fill 75oz of water compared to using the sink faucet.

    It works but the flow is so restricted that it will not pull water from the reserve tank. It does pull nicely from the main reservoir though.

    After much effort with the first one causing, "add water" light to come on prematurely. I contacted GE support who advised i likely had a defective filter. I tried a second one same results. Works fine without the side tank attached but seems to restrict water flow causing the machine to run dry.
