It was simple to install and works like a charm.

If you don't get it aligned just right, the thread bosses on this plastic adapter will be damaged and water will not flow.

Consumers BEWARE! The GE Smartwater GWF filter is not a replacement for the old 'Culligan' FXRC metal filter. Despite the available adapter, the new Smartwater GWF filter was designed for a newer 'high-pressure' system installed in GE refrigerators manufactured after 2001. On the older models using normal water pressure [mine is a GE Performance Profile] these filters do not work. They will seem fine at first, only to run to a trickle in less than a month. I burned through several of these at @ $40.00 each until I discovered the problem.

With millions of wasted filters and dollars at stake, GE refuses to acknowledge the problem. I was told to find a technician at my expense. GE refused to replace the filters with a properly designed compatible model.

This adapter should not really be needed and it is difficult to install, as you can not tell when the plastic part is correctly aligned with the metal threads in the refrig. If you don't get it aligned just right, the thread bosses on this plastic adapter will be damaged and water will not flow. I found it was much easiest to pull the frosted horizontal bulb cover out, (just pull it towards you) so I could see when the the plasitc and metal threads were aligned. This made it was easy to install without damage.

You may not need this adapter....so do your research. I bought it and it turns out the list of fridges that require it was incorrect. My GE works fine with the generic replacement water filters and no adapter.

The filter and adapter fit in my old GE fridge I have so I'm happy. Replaced filter FXRC. I could have bought a new FXRC or MXRC (replacement filter from GE b/c FXRC is discontinued) as some places must still have a stock of the old FXRC. The MWF (newest filter) and the adapter (needed to fit in the older GE model fridges) fits fine but the water flow rate is unbearably slow. It seemed to have made ice in short order though. I may try the MXRC the next time and see if the flow rate is any better but the MWF is a cheaper filter and I already have the adapter. We'll make that decision when this filter is done. This is a second fridge in the garage anyway and we use it mostly for storage and extra ice making capacity. The water flow rate for my purposes are minimal but it'd be nice if it worked well enough to use.

Have a Kenmore (Sears) branded fridge that needed a new filter. When ordering new filters from Sears it turns out they changed to a different type of fitting on new filter, and they didn't state I needed the adapter now. Even their exploded diagrams on the parts list (even the updated online one) doesn't reflect a need for this adapter. Finally figured it out and am now able to use the right filter (older type fitting no longer manufactured).

As a side note, if you need the filters that fit this adapter, DO NOT order from Sears! Shipping is wicked expensive and local storefront does not stock them. Found them locally at Lowe's, and they are available online at Amazon as well.

Adapter is well built, durable, and works fine. Only gave 4 stars as (A) had to get the dang thing in the first place, and (B) it effectively lengthened the space needed to install the filter, so had to move shelf one slot down in the bracket holder.

Does the MXRC filter even fit the GE Profile fridge? According to the details under the Amazon listing for the MXRC, it may not. They stress a few times that the GE Profile will need the crappy MWF filters with adapter. I use the MWF filters with an adapter and I'm sick of trickling water and, twice, leaking from the water system of my fridge (which I swear is related to this fiasco with incompatible water pressure). I want to try the MXRC but don't want to waste $50 if it doesn't fit. Has anyone tried the MXRC on a GE Profile fridge?

We have an older refrigerator that required the adapter for the filter (actual filter no longer available). The water dispenser leaks through it so not a good match.

I recently rented a house with an older model fridge. I was frustrated about the water filtration system. I went online and found a solution. Purchased from Amazon and now I have filtered water thanks to this adapter! Thanks!
