The reservoir inside has to be replaced. After numerous calls to LG, I finally got the LG Mobile Service Tech to service it, and the water reservoir has been completely redesigned....can you say "design flaw?" Now, since the new "tube" has replaced the "reservoir," I have little green things floating in my filtered water! I hate LG products.

Hi Daniel Roland - There are many reason for this issue to occur, for example the refrigerator could have a crack in the defrost pan, a defrost drain line blockage, a leak from the water supply line for the ice maker, but most cases water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet. Try confirming that the vales are tightened. If the connection is still leaking, turn of the water supply line to the water valve and take the connection apart. You can try using Teflon tape when retightening the connection to ensure a good seal.Should this suggestion prove to be ineffective contact a professional to properly diagnose and repair the refrigerator a good seal.
The line going into the dispenser is a 5/16 line. You'll have to remove the front of the dispenser on the door to get access to the line to unclip it. Once you have that done you can pull the line out from the bottom. At this point there are a variety of different unions, compression fittings, etc. to splice the line. After that you just feed the line back through the bottom of the door, clip it back in place, put the dispenser back together and your done.
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.
Lets try this first. Have someone with a voltage meter unplug the two wires on the side of the dual water control valve for water dispenser on rear of your refrigerator and place the red and black probes from meter into the female end of the dispenser side of plug. Then while someone presses the dispense water control have the other person read the voltage. It should read the same voltage as home voltage when pressed. Us care not to touch probe ends at time of testing. Please tell me your results. I don't think the door open had anything to do with this. Yes leaving a freezer door open for hours does confuse the refrigerators memory and produces heavy ice in strange places. Unpluging and replugging will resolve that. I think the water control valve began to fail by becoming weak and finally failed, Sea Breeze
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
