Shut off water supply valve. Relieve water pressure by dispensing water. Unscrew water filter. Examine to see if the gasket is damaged or if filter was loose and just needed tightening. Or simply replace water filter with the correct water filter that your GE refrigerator calls for.
Cut the water off wherever your water cutoff is. Behind the fridge or under the sink. Your water inlet valve is stuck open and will need to be replaced. It's on the back where the water supply connects to the fridge.
For a GE (which you posted under) just turn the filter a quarter turn counter clockwise to remove the old filter. Water will shut off automatically, so you will only loose a few drips. Install new filter by lining up arrow/ cheveron and turning quarter turn clockwise.
If you have a GSH25JFRx.. (x = E,F,G,H,I, or J) it will use a MWF (formerly GWF) water filter. It is a can shaped filter located at the top right back of the fresh food section. Give is a quarter turn CCW to remove. (the water auto shuts off when you remove the filter)
