Water only dribbles from the water dispenser

The fridge is only 2 months old. When it was first connected the water dispensed fine but now it is only a dribble. I have checked the water supply at the back of the fridge and there is no lose in pressure.

Any ideas.

It sounds like you have a clog. If the clog is at the nozzle, you would still have pressure, however nothing would come out. It could also be the valve that opens for the dispenser.

Take it apart and look. I would focus on the dispenser end.

Good luck!

    If it is only two months old, I would suggest looking into the warranty.



    However another thing that could be happening which is very rare is that your line is freezing near the dispense area.



    To check for this, you could turn your temperature to a "less cool" setting and wait a day or so. Or if you really want to find out fast, blow hot air on it with a hair dryer for a while then try it and see if you get more than a trickle.



    Good Luck!

Inside water dispenser pumps water out really slowly on GE Profile PFS22MISBBB


It is possible that your water filters are getting plugged. Have you changed any filters lately?
The meat pan lever may also be turned to the coldest position and on units that have a low water usage, this will also cause the tank to freeze. You will want to lower the meat drawer setting or use more water from the door. This does not apply to Top Mount water dispenser models, because they do not have a reservoir. Problem requiring service, glass fill time.

  • Dispenser drips water constantly will be a water valve problem, and should be checked by a service technician. If you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.


  • Dribble as defined as a small amount of water (few drops) that may miss the glass ONLY AFTER USAGE. This is due to a delay in the overall system.

    Dribble can be minimized by the following actions:

    - Purge the tank, by holding down the dispenser for 2 to 3 minutes, to remove any trapped air that may be building pressure and causing the dribble.
    - A few drops is normal, but you can also prevent water from missing the glass and dripping down the cradle area by moving glass slower when removing it from the cradle.
    - You may need to periodically empty the recess grill and clean out underneath it to prevent overfilling and water dripping down the front of the refrigerator.


  • Also, remember the dispenser in the door will not operate unless the door is closed

    A 2 to 21/2 year old Samsung bottom mount freezer RB217ABPN purchased from Costco. Water is starting to collect under the crisper drawers in the fridge section. This is the third time in a couple of months...


    You have a leaking water tank behind the crisper drawer. You will need to get back there to determine if the tank is leaking or the water connection is leaking. This will only leak if you close the door and dispense water from the dispenser.

    Water dribbling out of dispencer whirlpool american fridgefreezer


    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.

    Changed the filter, now it works fine. I'd still like to find a way to bypass the filter. My fridge is only 2 yrs. old, but I'm sure it will have plenty of life left after these filters become unavailable.

    check the fiting where you tapped the water for the uit. If its a saddle valve what happens is the the gasket closes down and restricts the water flow.

    The water dispencer dribbles the water out.


    The water hose coil is to chill the drinking water coming out of the dispenser. If the water drips out it could be a bad solenoid valve since the water dispenser requires power to dispenser water. If the Ice maker is working fine then check the dispenser water solenoid valve.
