Question Water Dispenser Intermittent-ice Dispenser Doesn't Operate

WATER DISPENSER INTERMITTENT-ICE DISPENSER DOESN'T OPERATE
GE Side by Side, Model GSH25JSRFSS
Installed 11/2005
Failure 03/2012

ORIGINAL SYMPTOM: When depressing the dispenser cradle in any function (Water/Crushed/Cubed), the green indicator light would extinguish momentarily, a [rumbling?] noise would emanate for a few seconds from the box located at the top/rear of the center wall in the fridge, but no water or ice would come out and the overhead light would not illuminate; for ice, the
auger would not turn.

1ST STEP: Believing some filters "shut off" when they are due for replacement, and knowing already mine was due, I replaced the filter.
FILTER NOTE: I've been using the "Brita GERF-100" filter since my first GE filter replacement. But Brita discontinued the GERF-100, the filter I removed, & **********************.com replaced it with the "GE MWF Replacement Filter - WaterSentinel WSG-1", the filter I installed.

1st STEP SYMPTOM: I depressed the dispenser cradle in the Water function to allow the water to run for 5 minutes, per the Filter Installation Manual. The water ran. It did take a minute or two for the flow to begin, but it ran. So, water runs, problem fixed, right? Not so fast ...

NEW SYMPTOM: A later attempt to draw water was unsuccessful. Out of frustration I depressed the cradle several times, and after the 4th or 5th time the overhead light illuminated, the green indicator light came back on, the fridge box "rumbled", and water flowed with force. Ice, however, still exhibited the "original symptom".

This is repeatable, with intermittent results from the Water function.

I appreciate your comments and advice.
