Water is dripping from dispenser and ice is not being made

We have water constantly dripping from the dispenser in the door of the fridge. Filter is fine. There is a blinking red light when we open the freezer door on the right side.

No ice is being made at all. no water seems to be filling into the ice maker.

Can you help us at all?

It sounds like you may have a mineral buildup problem. Minerals can buildup inside the water valve on the door that prevent it's full closing, and minerals can buildup in the fill valve to prevent full flow wen a call for water is made.

Please provide the exact Model number of the unit so I can see how this unit is built, and can give you more direction.

Also indicate whether there is adequate water flow when getting water from the door.

Why is the water dispenser constantly dripping?


If the water is coming from the water dispenser itself then most likely you have a water valve that bis going bad and it will only get worse.

Frigidaire water dispenser drips constantly. I have been told there is a main water valve and a second valve for the water dispenser. Where is it and how to replace?


if you are referring to the cold water on the door , then there is a solenoid valve on the bottom back left side of fridge, you will see two there , one is for ice maker and one is for water on door , most times it's a good idea to replace both of them , also there should be a filter inside fridge on bottom middle (cartridge) this should be changed monthly to maintain fresh taste and keep foreign objects out of tubes

My fridge just started running water from under,not just a Lil drip,I even have to shut the main water line off....what do I do now?.


My refrigerator did this when the fridge temperature control door got stuck open and froze everything in the refrigerator. I tracked down the problem to a connection in my water supply filter. I just removed the filter and spliced the line. I doubt the same thing happened to you but you can probably find the leak by tracing the water supply to the ice maker/water dispenser.

On our GE refrigerator, water leaks out of the bottom of the frame for the water/ice dispenser and down the front of the freezer side door. What could be causing this?


Did you just recently change your water filter? you need to flush 3 gallons of water out of it when changing the filter. if there is air in the line it'll drip constantly. If your ice door isnt closing all the way and properly sealing that also could be a source of water dripping. do you have a low of "Snowy" frost inside your freezer door at the ice dispenser shute?

My Amana french door/bottom freezer is leaking water. Did the procedure with hot water the drain in back of the freezer, although it seemed clear of ice. That didn't help. The leaking stops when I...


Two possibilities:
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.

Water leaking at filter


If this is a Pure source 2 filter in the upper right hand side of fridge, Purchase an Electrolux filter bypass, P/N 241944302. This is a empty cartridge that lets water flow without water drip when filter is clogged. Fridgidaire/Electrolux made no bypass in these filters, so when clogged they leak. Plus they NEVER last more than about 30/60 days. If you use the bypass, you will need a separate filter elsewhere such as in water line under sink or behind fridge. Call me at 816-560-8545 if you need more info.

Water Dispenser Drips


Had the same problem after replacing over seven water valves and installing a water regulator in the water line to the refrigerator with no help. Had to reduce the water pressure to about 27 pounds the reduce most of the drips. It drips an amount about the size of a quarter and when the water gets the coldest it stops the drip, but there is always a droplet at the end of the water disperser tube.

The problem is with water stored in the refrigerator side of the box. Water come in and does not leak. After the water gets colder it expands and oozes drips from the water dispenser. It is worse with the roll of tubing behind the crisper drawer on the bottom, because there is no room for expansion in the tubing. We replaced the tubing with and older style tank and it helped some, but not completely. The solution is 1. Try to buy a refrigerator with a tank instead of the roll of tubing in the bottom of the refrigerator side. 2. Don't use the water dispenser. 3. Reroute the tubing directly to the water dispenser and bypass going into the refrigerator, the water will not be as cold. 4. Avoid those built by Whirlpool.
