Hello Marie Baxter: If you suspect the water dispenser is leaking, make sure it is the hoses coming from the filter and not the actual filter.


Sometimes the clamps on the hoses for fridge water filters can come loose or the hose itself could crack; in which case the hose would need replacing (or tightening the clamp), and not the filter.

If you clearly find the filter is leaking, the best thing to do is make sure it is installed properly.

If it is securely in place, then you may just have a defective filter and changing it will solve the leaking.

You will need to remove the filter, which is typically located in the back of the refrigerator and inspect it to see what condition it is in.


•For instance, if it is black or looks dirty, you probably will want to replace it.


•Moreover, when there is a leak or a clog, you will notice a dramatic decrease in the output of the water dispenser tab, which is another sign there may be a leak in the water filter. If you know the water filter in your refrigerator is leaking, then you can take the water filter out and see if it has anything loose on it, but typically if it is leaking, it probably is best to replace the water filters for refrigerators.


•This is especially true if you use the filtered water from the refrigerator as your main home water filter systems.


•Moreover, if it has been awhile since you changed the filter; it can become clogged over time, which can cause it to leak.


When you are faced with having a leaking filter refrigerator water unit, it helps to think through the pros and cons of fixing the leak vs. replacing the refrigerator water filter.

SOURCE: Ice maker not working

my icemaker has a wire overfill sensor which shuts off the icemaker if there is too much ice in the basket. If this wire gets pushed up it will stop making ice until level lowers OR manually lowered.

Hi,

This problem is common and can be difficult to solve, first of all you have a air leak and because of this, your dispenser leaks. Check every connection for the water system, starting from the back of the unit at the valve. Disconnect the water to the tank first, put the water valve in a bucket and hit the dispenser switch to see if the valve leaks after dispensing water, if it does, replace valve, if not continue in to refer section behind crispers. (this is behind the veggie bins can you see any water at the bottom? If so, repair the leak and continue forward. Check under freezer door at the connection to assure not leaks of water. Again this is a process and after all of this is done or check, one of these solutions should solve your issue. I know not a simple answer but this will correct the issue when everything is checked.
Good Luck

GE Side By Side Ice Machine & Water dispenser not getting water


you may have a pin hole in your water line to your dispenser or you could be leaking at the water valve itself on the water dispenser side. you'll have to pull the refrigerator out from the wall and look where the main water line goes into the back of the refrigerator. you will probably have to take the back off to see. be sure you put the back of the refrigerator back when you are through.

I have a side by side GE refrigerator and the water dispenser is leaking quite a bit. It looks like is leaks where the water is dispensed.


Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

The water dispenser leaks


The most likely reason for the leaking at the water dispenser is the dual water control valve on the back and near floor is leaking water while shut off. The only option is to replace the water control valve. Sea Breeze
