Official GE Profile refrigerator water filters

GE Profile refrigerator water filters remove impurities from water that can affect the water’s taste, smell and sometimes its healthfulness.  To ensure your water filter can trap all the impurities and contaminants it’s been proven to remove, replace your refrigerator water filter every 6 months. And always buy a brand-name refrigerator water filter from an authorized seller to make sure you don’t end up with an aftermarket knock-off filter or a counterfeit.

We can send you your GE Profile water filter replacement automatically, so you don’t have to remember to reorder. Simply subscribe during checkout to get a new water filter every 6 or 12 months (you can skip any shipment and can cancel at any time).
