I have water to the filter but when you push for chilled water it just comes out top of filter to leak into fridge. Will not make ice if you leave icemaker on it will just leak into fridge. The fridge has been in storage for a year and worked fine whe put in there. I changed filter and still no luck. Any ideas?

the purpose of the line running up and down again is provide the chilled water (as evidenced by "dual water valve) there is nothing saying that even if the original line is encased in the foam insulation , the new one cant run up the outside of the back case , its just not going to be chilled any longer , but would eliminate the leak in the line that's internal (inside foam) you will have to come up with your own type of tube connectors as I do remember that the factory ones use crimped clamps , and no they cant be reused again if removed
The solenoid valve that controls the water dispenser is leaking internally. It will be a double valve (one for ice, the other for chilled water) located at the bottom of the frame in the back of the unit. To find it, just trace where the plastic tubes originate from.
Easy to replace.
These leaks are sometimes caused by particles getting trapped on the valve seat. This can be prevented by use of an inline water filter on the copper supply line.
shut water off to ref and try cutting the end of the tube off, but only 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch.. insert back into housing firmly and turn water back on and see if leak stopped.... if still leaking order and replace the filter housing..... hope this helps....... ken
When you press the water dispenser button, do you hear a noise like water is trying to come as usual. If so then your problem might be frozen chill water tank or failed chill water valve. If you don't hear the regular noise then the problem might be with the dispenser unit.
change the water filter usually located in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator compartment on side x sides,if top mount freezer it can be about anywhere inside the unit except freezer compartment
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.
Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.
The ice maker is probably not getting water. Have you heard the water valve click on and off to allow water to flow to the ice maker? If you get chilled water from the fridge, the ice maker's water valve will probably sound very similar to when you dispense chilled water. Try the water to listen for it. Then, listen for it over the course of an hour or so to determine if the ice maker is doing the same thing. If you hear it - then there may be a blockage in the line or filter.
If you don't have provisions to get chilled water from your fridge (ice only) or notice that you can't get water from your fridge any more: Make sure the water supply is on and.. that supply line isn't kinked or got crushed when the fridge was pushed back into position. This is a pretty common occurrence. If you don't hear any water valve clicking, the valve itself may have failed or there may be a problem with the electrical circuit. Hopefully, you won't have to got beyond this, but if so - let us know.
