Hello All,

We have a GE refrigerator that will not recognize the filter RFID. We have tried a couple new filters and the provided bypass plug. All result in "Replace Water Filter" "Dispenser Off" messages. We have tried to install/reinstall, power off, and tried multiple times to adjust how the filter sits in the cradle (all facing the right way, there is some play up and down.)

I know the reader module is fairly easy to replace, and the green light is on inside the unit.

Any input would be great.

Are you using the OEM water filter?

Here's the OEM water filter for your model:

I'm not familiar with this newer GE model, but I located another thread that another member posted about that RFID board here:
Your model uses that exact same RFID board as he posted in post #13.

What stub? The water filter by-pass?

Did you replace the RFID board?

Correct, the water filter bypass. I am ordering the main board, as our RFID board seems to check out.

Alright... water worked for a while then stopped. Now if you unplug the refrigerator and plug back in it works for a short while.

Ok, then its most likely the RFID board, like I mentioned above.

Here's the RFID board for your model: RFID board WR55X23345

Finally Fixed!!! Got the board for the RFID and now it works.
Turns out we needed both the mainboard and the RFID board.
Thanks for all of your help.
