If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.
Ice maker water not stopping The water inlet valve may be staying open. You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it. If it does stop after trying it several times then the problem is with the ice maker.
That coulds be a defrost drain blockage or the coupling to the water dispenser is loose. Remove the kick plate to see if the water is dripping from water line or look into freezer to see if water is draining from rear panel in freezer. Let me know what you see and I will be able to tell you what you need to. Sea Breeze
HI. When a filter has reached its filtering limit, it must be replaced. Once the filter has reached its filtering limits, it will not allow for proper water flow. This will affect the operating status of the dispenser. With that being said, there are other issues that will affect the dispensers abilities as well. These issues are a faulty water inlet valve assembly, and frozen inlet lines. If you are having issues with the dispenser, make sure you inspect these areas as well. Your filter should have an installation date on the label. check to see that it is not over a year old. if so, it should be replaced.
The filter is located behind the front lower grille work. The grille should have a cut out space for it to slide into.
You may need to replace the water reservoir located behind the crisper. They are known to flake and cause the problem you describe. They are usually replaced with a coil of water line instead of one larger reservoir to stop the problem.
SORRY TO SAY THIS BUT IT SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE BLACK ALGEA IN YOU WATER SYS WHICH IS GOING TO REQUIRE A TECH TO REPLACE ALL THE TUBING IN YOUR WATER INLET SYS TO GET RID OF IT. GOOD LUCK AND CONTACT APPLIANCE SERVICE CO. P.S. DON'T DRINK THE WATER OR USE THE ICE IT WILL CAUSE MEDICAL COMPLICATIONS
