    GE water dispenser won't stop!
    When I went to get some water from my GE water dispenser, the water would not stop coming out. I had to finally pull out the refrigerator and turn off the shut-off valve. Can anyone tell me what is wrong and how can I fix the problem?:eek:

    Same thing just happened with my GE fridge. I have the freezer door propped open while I figure out what to do.

    Likely a bad solenoid to the incoming water line. Easy to fix.

    Problem fixed automagically. But I will take a look at the solenoid.

    To turn off the water flow I had 2 options:
    Keep the freezer door open or
    Activate the lock switch.

    I locked the dispenser for a few hours. Later when I unlocked it the problem went away and the dispenser was working normally.

    Mine started doing the same thing, had to cut the water line off, and turn it back on later and it stopped (until the next time I tried to get water), now the water line going to the ice maker won't stop flowing, causing it to completely freeze over as a block of ice, preventing the ice from dropping. Any ideas??
