Recently water stopped coming out of our in door dispenser and we could hear a loud gurgling sound coming from inside. As it turns out water was leaking from near the filter and made quite a mess. I assumed my filter was clogged (it was overdue to be changed) so i removed and installed a replacement. Well the leaking which is actually more of a "spraying" is still occurring. The filter appears to be secure and tight. Could one of the hoses that lead into the filter be clogged or the like? I cannot see anything obvious that would be causing this.

Do you hear a slight buzzing when you try to get water?? If yes, you may have a frozen water line inside the freezer door. GE had some problems with those models. They offer a heater kit that has to be installed in the dispenser area of the freezer door. Once installed, in about a day the water line should be defrosted enough to dispense water again. If you don't hear that buzzing sound when trying to get water, you could have a bad inlet valve which is at the lower back of the refrigerator where your house water line hook to the refrigerator.
You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don't hear it there is a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn't work here there is a valve or water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.
The howling sound usually comes from an electronic control when it's going bad. I've also heard of the noise coming from the special shaped condenser fan you have underneath around back. GE may have a fix for this.
Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws. Covering the opening with a blanket will prevent the loss of cold in the freezer. . GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happing again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.
disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad
Hi monica , the heating element in your freezer might be bad or the thermostat. that is way your freezer is not melting the ice inside and the noise that you hear it's the fan that prob' tuch ice or also is getting bad. let me know if you need more help...
That sounds like the water valve that receives water from your house plumbing and sends it to your icemaker and to the water dispenser. In addition to the hose connections, there are likely some electrical connections on it.
The valve should be readily available at any of the appliance parts places that sell on the internet. It should be fairly easy to replace. Most of those are pretty accessible.
This could be as simple as the door switch or as complex as the dispenser control board. I would try the door switch first. When the door is close it turns on the dispenser controls. If the contact is defective in the door/light switch then this happens. Unplug remove the door switch and mark wire locations. 1 Powers the lights and the other powers the dispenser. and one is the power itself. Sea Breeze
