Water sprays out of filter spout when I remove water filter

I have a GE side-by-side fridge and when I remove the filter, inside the fridge, to change it water sprays out of the line that connects directly to the filter and can only be stopped when I put in another filter. Is that normal?

I believe Todd is incorrect. You should be able to simply remove the old filter and install a new one, or remove the bypass to install a filter for the first time without any spray of water. Maybe a drip or two, but no spray. No need to pull the fridge out and turn the water supply off. The connector where the filter clicks into place should have a built in auto-shutoff when there is nothing connected to it. That said, my brother just got soaked by his new fridge. I have the same one at my house and removed and replaced the filter just to show him that something was obviously wrong with his.

Noremally you would take and shut off the water too the filter and relleive the pressure before you attempt to remove the filter.

Water not working but still makes ice


At the bottom of the freezer door ( remove the kick plate ) , there will be a water line . Follow this line , about 6 " to a connector . Push in on the white ring and pull out the line , at the same time . Activate the water dispensor pad and see if water flows from the line under the refrig . If it does , then the line in the door is frozen . Either raise the freezer temp for several days , so the line in the door will thaw , turn on the dispensor light for several hours , or , I have heard using an air tank will blow the ice out of the line in the door . If no water comes from the line under the refrig , while activating the pad , then replace the water valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig . GE has a dispensor heater pt. # WR49X10173 to keep this from happening again ( comes with instructions ) .

1. My fridge is making a loud clicking noise at


If there is ice in the icemaker and its not ejecting the ice you more than likely have a bad heater in your icemaker not heating the cubes for the rake to scoop them out. No water through the door would probably be a separate issue. If its a GE they are known for poor insulation on the freezer door and the water line will freeze going up the inside of the door. If you remove the kickplate there will be a quick connect coupler. remove it from the line going up the door and call for water. If you get water to this point you know the line is frozen through the door. If not then you will want to check your saddle valve for calcium deposits gunking it up. Least common issue would be a bad water valve.

most likely the water line that supplies water inside the freezer door has frozen up blocking the dispenser. try leaving the freezer door open for 5-10 minutes and allow the line to thaw out.
