Question about Refrigerators
Last year water kept dripping through the drinking water spout. I changed the water valve assembly and problem was solved. Now, water keeps dripping from the ice maker drip tube even if I turn the ice maker off. Any idea what is causing this.

You may have a restriction in the icemaker. Remove the icemaker and make sure that there is no ice buildup other than in the cube slots. Also make sure that the fill tube is clear of any ice obstruction.

Need to take the ice maker out to measure the amount of water input into the ice tray. In this case the tray was already full (from the leaking valve). The spillage I saw was just the tray overflowing. Time for a new valve.

Most models of Ice makers have an automatic timer for the amount of water that is allowed to enter the Ice Maker tray. If your timer valve is going bad you need to replace it. First I would reduce the amount of water coming from its source. There should be a tapped valve under your sink, connected to your water line. You have to turn the top of the valve clock wise to reduce the amount of water the is going to the back of your refrigerator. That is where you will find the timer valve. Reducing your water flow should help reduce the volume of water being let into your Ice Maker.

SOURCE: water in ice maker drips
The cause of the constant drip is the inlet valve. Since the ice-maker water doesn`t travel through the filter but directly to the ice-maker, the valve must be faulty to allow water to travel through the valve when it`s not energized.
The valve part number most common for your type of fridge (manufactured by Whirlpool) is W10247725 and retail`s around $25-$30US.
**If you decide to service this on your own remember to unplug the unit and shut off the water to the unit.**
Hope that help`s. If so please take a second to rate the solution I provided for you here at fixya.
