Question about Electrolux EI27BS26JS Stainless Steel

1 Answer

My Electrolux refrigerator has a slow leak out of the water dispensor

We bought a house in Oct. In December we noticed that was a small dip coming out of the fridge. Repairman came out and replaced the ice maker and noticed that the motor had some freezing. Had us unplug the fridge for 24 hrs. Everything worked fine till this week and now it is happening again. Slowly dripping. We would rather not take everything out of the fridge to de-ice it again (if that is the problem). Any ideas?

That is simply your dual water control valve found on the back of most refrigerators. If I had your model number I would be able to point out the part number and location. Here is what happens. The water valve begins to slowly leak water that comes to the ice maker when not needed. It moves slow enough that it begins to freeze solid inside the fill tube to ice maker and when the ice maker calls for water there is a big chunk of ice in the way and the water goes everywhere but where it should. Here is a short clip with lots of info, Please Rate and Thanks, Sea Breeze

Before replacing water valve open open back panel disconnected water line of water dispensser and tell some 1 to press water actuator on dispensor and check water pressure from it. If its slow then it can be valve or it can be filter housing. Repalce both if confuse.

Hello, lost water in the house, now when it came back on, water dispensor has a slow drip (not sure if related)... the dispensor handle seems to be working fine... it dispenses water when pressed.. doesn't...


remove bottom grill.

look for tube which runs thru freezer door.

follow back towards underneath of machince/ find push fit connector.

remove pipe which run thru door from connector and blow thru quite hard. reconnect and press dispenser paddle to allow water back thru

this shhould solve problem in 9/10 cases if it doesn't then you will need your water inlet valve checked

If you take the bottom grill off the front of the appliance -1x Philips screw either side- under the freezer door you will see where the water pipe goes through the hinge. follow that pipe back towards the underneath of the machine and you should come across a push-fit connector.

The pipe leading through the freezer door from the connector, and blow down it, re-fit, press dispenser paddle to allow to flow. This stops the drip in 9/10 instances.

If not you may need to have someone check the water valve for slight blockage.

Water dispenser leak all the time how can i fix it?


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 ice shoot leaks water into the exterior tray


It sounds like the dispensor flap , is not closing , letting warm air into the freezer . Remove the top cover from the freezer door hinge and disconnect the plug . This removes power to the door . Use a small screwdriver , and pry the bottom of the dispensor display board outward . Remove the 3 plugs . Remove the 4 screws on the white dispensor housing ( 1 on each corner ) and slide the housing out . In the top right , inside the dispensor area , you will see a solenoid with a plunger . These 2 parts usually rust , and have to be replaced . Pt # WR62X10055 . Only 3 screws hold this piece on , so it can easily be replaced .

Doors got to hot


Check the warrenty on fridge . Usually you have a 5 year warrenty on the compressor AND sealed system ( parts and labor ) . However , a service call charge may apply . Also check to see if something got sucked into the compressor cooling fan blade causing the noise , after you cleaned the coils .

From the description about dispensor leaking and ice getting stuck , sounds like the water valve needs to be replaced . Small ice cubes ( from not enough water ) will get caught between the rake and fingers . A leaking water dispensor , usually indicates that the water solenoid is not closing completely when letting off the water dispensor arm . Both solenoids come togather as the water valve ( located where the wall waterline connects to refrig ) .

We have a side by side refrigerator/freezer. a water drip runs down the grille on the freezer side. a small amount. we cannot locate where the water comes from. Can you help?? model #ed20tqxfn00 Al...


If you have ice and water in the freezer door it would appear that the water line going to the water dispensor has a leak. First check where the door hindges at the bottom as this is where the line runs from the water container located in the fresh food compartment to the water dispensor in the freezer door.
