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.

Changed water filter, now no water comes through. What can I do to fix this?


Did you install the filter all the way, until it seats? There is probably a switch that has to be closed by the filter before the water valve can be opened, thus preventing water from being sprayed inside your refrigerator compartment.

GE Fridge - The water filter bypass plug is stuck


Should just take a quarter turn CCW to remove. You may loose a few drips of water, but the water shuts off automatically when the plug or a filter is removed. A wrench should not be needed to do this.
