For GE GE Smartwater™ Replacement Water Filter (Part Number: AP5788185)

My Smart water Filter unit is leaking pretty heavy with the filter installed or the flow-through valve attached. There was no previous issues or no one touched anything prior to the issue. I had to cut off water from the wall. What are the possibilities of the leaking culprit? Ice maker worked fine prior to leak. Water line had a tendency to freeze at times.

ANSWER Hello Darrell, If the water Filter Housing WR17X20860 is leaking, it will have to be replaced. No other component on the unit can "cause" it to leak. You will need to set the freezer to a warmer setting and the fresh food side COLDER. This increases air flow, reducing the possibility of freezing.
