Re: Water leak outside valve
You have a leak where the back plate goes up to the wall OR there is a gasket missing from the trim installation. If this is a tile shower i would suspect the first and use clear tub/tile chaulking to seal around the edge of the plate paying close attention to the grout lines.

You have a leak. First ensure the pressure relief valve is closed. You can try spraying soapy water on the outside while pumping it up, and look for bubbles. The one way valve might be leaking, too. Good luck.
2) the water inlet valve that distributes water to icemaker and in door dispenser (if equipped) hasa pinhole in it and spraying water onto the floor...to check that gotta pull out ref.from the wall and remove lower rear service plate and inspect the valve for a pinhole
If the leak is on the refrig water valve where the wall water line connects to , then use a 1/2" wrench and tighten the fitting on the water valve itself . If the leak is on the plastic tubing at the bottom of the refrig water valve , pull up on the small white ring while pushing down on the plastic tube to remove it from the valve . Cut off about 1 " of the tubing and reinsert it into the valve with pretty good pressure to be sure it is inserted completely .
The inlet valve will be located in the back of the ref. You have to remove the access panel and the valve will be mounted usually on the right hand side (if your looking at it from the back). To replace the valve you have to shut off the water at the saddle valve probably located in the basement. If you are replacing the valve then I would also replace the saddle valve at the same time its only about 10 bucks, because they usually gunk up w/ calcium deposits which lead to problems with the inlet valve of the ref.
Hope this helps _MJ_
your water valve is bad. behind the ref. in back is a cover. unplung unit remove ref. from back wall about 2-4 ft.remove back cover and you will see a water valve. thats the piece that the hose (your incoming water supply line hooks upto) 1/2 fitting. turn water suppy off. remove screw holding valve. disconnect wires one bye one and hoses one bye one.(so you dont mix them up).if your ref has a inline water filter and has not been replaced in a while i woiuld try that first. valve is about 45-85/ depending on your model ,i do not have that.and labor roughly 75-125 to replace depending on were you live and who you use. hope this helps you.
ok this is an easy one. you have what is called a frost free hose bib. this is split or has a hole in it after the seat. the seat is inside the house wall. you need to cut off the copper inside the house and replace the valve . if it is not a solder joint than have someone hold back on the copper on the inside and you should be able to spin it off and replace it. P.S if this is the case make sure you use T-tape on the threaded conection
