IF YOU CHANGED THE FILTER AND GOT WATER OUT THE DISPENSOR AND HAD A RUSH OF AIR COME OUT OF THE LINE. YOU MAY HAVE GOT WATER UNDER THE DRIP TRAY. WATER WILL THEN COME AROUND AND APPEAR THAT THE DISPENSOR IS LEAKING. OR YOU MAY HAVE NOT PURGED ALL OF THE AIR. LET ME KNOW.
A lot of filters ( not all ) do not even access the ice maker . Only the water dispensor . If your water dispensor is working fine , then you need to replace the dual water inlet valve behind the refrig . This is the piece the wall water line connects to . It is called a dual valve because there are 2 coils on the valve . 1 for the ice maker and 1 for the water dispensor .
It sounds like the dispensor flap , is not closing , letting warm air into the freezer . Remove the top cover from the freezer door hinge and disconnect the plug . This removes power to the door . Use a small screwdriver , and pry the bottom of the dispensor display board outward . Remove the 3 plugs . Remove the 4 screws on the white dispensor housing ( 1 on each corner ) and slide the housing out . In the top right , inside the dispensor area , you will see a solenoid with a plunger . These 2 parts usually rust , and have to be replaced . Pt # WR62X10055 . Only 3 screws hold this piece on , so it can easily be replaced .
I bought a brand new smartwater replacement filter and after a very short time, my water stopped coming through the door.. took out the new replacement filter and inserted a brand new one .. problem solved.. apparently some of the g.e. smartwater filter replacement cartridges don't have the high enough two plastic inserts which are attached to them at the top of the filter when you screw them on... if you have taken your cartridge in and out a few times, i think it wears down the plastic so it doesn't fit properly and won't put up whatever it is supposed to push up to make the water come through.. I personally think this is a g.e. problem with the replacement filters...
Im gonna be bold and take a stab at this problem. (since I dont see anyone else doing it).... Lets see, Has anyone tried turning the freezer setting down a notch? Try that and give it a day. My theory is; ALL ice makers have a thermostat in them and if they arent at the right temp than they will not go into the "haverest cycle". When you press that button you force it through that cycle. Therefore if your freezer is cold enough, The ice maker won't make ice! This could also be a sign of a BIGGER problem..... Things to look for to help solve problem;
**Can you hear a fan running in freezer?
**Is there any snowy frosted ice on back wall in freezer?(at the bottom area)
Womers, make sure there is not a lock-out on the dispensor panel. If there is, hold it in for 5 seconds and see if the dispensors come alive. Because both water and ice are not working, I would think you have a dispenser board issue. Catriver..post back.
