Question about GE Refrigerators
Carefully follow the directions below;
Hold your glass under the dispenser for a few seconds after releasing the sensor arm. A few drips from the nozzle are completely normal. The grille beneath the nozzle is designed to catch and evaporate these occasional drips as they occur.
Take a warm, soapy cloth to the dispenser and remove any drink residue from the sensor arm. Liquid is easily splashed on the mechanism when ice cubes drop into your glass. Over time this residue prevents the sensor arm moving springing back when it's pressed, creating a leak.
Run the dispenser intermittently (five seconds on, five off) into a large container for two minutes. This process purges the pipes of air. You should clear the system whenever you change the water filter or disconnect the water supply. Use the water in the container to water plants. The leak should stop when you're finished.
Check the refrigerator's plumbing for leaks or cracked pipes. Damaged or badly installed water connections inside the refrigerator sometimes cause water leaks. Tighten any loose connections and replace any leaking pipes. Contact a technician if you are unsure how to do this yourself.

Under some circumstances the water dispenser can leak water into the spill trap when not in use. This problem could be caused by one of several scenarios involving the installation of the refrigerator doors. Small leaks are often triggered when a new water filter is installed. The exact location of some parts will vary depending on your model of refrigerator.
Keep a glass under the dispenser for up to three seconds after releasing the lever. The water doesn't cut off immediately, and there may be a few remaining drops in the system. This is normal and doesn't need any further attention.Run the water dispenser into a large container for three minutes. Empty the contents of the container down the sink. A newly installed water filter may spurt or leak water from the dispenser until the water is run for a few minutes. Some dispensers may cut off after a few minutes automatically.
Run the dispenser intermittently -- five seconds on, five seconds off -- for two minutes. This measure clears air trapped in the supply line, filter and dispenser system. Some dispensers will spurt or leak water until all air is purged from the system. You should follow this step each time the water is disconnected or the filter changed.Ensure all components of the water supply have been properly connected. All connections should be tightly screwed in place and pipes straight so water doesn't leak out of the pipes or dispenser nozzle. Contact a technician if you didn't install the refrigerator yourself.
