The filter is building up ans excess of water. When this waters freezes it expands and breaks the filter. Do you have a way to extend tubin, and install filter on the outside of unit?

GE Water Dispenser not working


Sounds like the water tank in the fridge section froze and split open causing a leak. Plus, the water feed line to the dispenser has frozen where it runs up through the freezer door- guessing your trimmer line only goes about 5" into the tube?
There is a water line heater kit that GE makes : Refrigerator Heating Element WR49X10173 .
Then, buy two quick disconnects 5/16" and about 10 feet of 5/16" plastic tubing- use the tubing and disconnects to replace the cracked water tank and you should be good to go... Refrigerator Water Line 5210JA3004K

Why my refrigerator is leaking water from the top where the water filter is located?


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.

Water will not dispence in ge refrigerator model number gsl25jfpa bs


Your line is frozen. Frozen water dispenser line is a problem with this model. There are number of solutions.

1. Contact GE 800 386-1215, option 5 and ask for WR49X10173 heater kit. There is a video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdNX3LteJTw to help you install it. Try to get GE to send you the fix free.
2. Get a hair dryer and heat the dispensing box until the water dispenser works. This is not a permanent solution, though, and it takes 15 to 30 minutes. Hang a long beach towel or blanket over the open freezer to save the cold air.
3. Place a long, clean fishing line or weed wacker line up the water dispenser line. When it freezes, pull carefully to dislodge the frozen water.
4. Buy another brand of refrigerator and let GE know they make inferior products.

I have an LG LSC26905TT side by side fridge


When the filter freezes up, the outside casing may have cracked and will leak water when you dispense water through the door.  You will need to have the filter replaced and that should take care of the problem.  But the filter should never have frozen in the 1st place.  You will need to call a qualified LG technician to see what's going on inside the refrigerator.

Ge water filter cracks


The issue is with length of the filter and the space behind the filter allowing it to bend.

Along with many people we put a lot of things in our frig. When you jam things into your frig they can hit the filter causing it to bend towards the back of the frig. The long filter becomes a lever putting extra force on the plastic threads on the filter causing them to crack and leak.

Luckly we noticed our leak early and did not have a big leak into the floor below. But when I was removing items from the frig to get to the filter we had just bought two big gallons of milk and one was jammed into the filter.

You can try to remember to not put to much on that side, but within a month you will for get. Best thing to do until GE comes up with a better filter is to tape a wedge to the filter that fills the space between the filter and the back of the frig. That way if you jam a big gallon milk into the filter it will not bend and crack.
