Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve. If still the issue is not resolved then remove the ice bin, Remove the wires from the auger motor. With the freezer door open and the door switch depressed, push the ice cube release and check for 120VAC between the motor wires. If there is 120VAC then the motor has gone bad. If there is no 120VAC then the control board (module time delay) has to be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

    I'm pretty sure the problem lies in the valve in the refrigerator since there is some calcium around the water dispenser tube. Where is the valve & how do I access it?
    The 3 covers on the back of the refrigerator are for 1) the electronics for the ice/water dispenser, 2) the fan 7 motor access, & 3) the water supply tube which just disappears into the enclosed body of the refrigerator.
    Is there a way to flush a solution like vinegar/water or CLR thru the valve without removing it?

    Its better not to flush vinegar and please follow the steps that i have given you. Please see the below picture for location of water inlet valve(part#15):

When water leaks from the dispenser like this it will be caused by a defective water control valve that will not shut properly when off. The leaking water is the same as a leaking faucet. The KSCS25IN uses a=> W10247725-Water Control Valve or HERE

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

    Does not seal when water is added. Water drips out


    Filled Hot Shot with vinger, let it flow through at 15 minute intervals for a couple of hours.

    Apparently the water here had lime and removed the buildup that was causing the leak.

    Whirlpool ED27DQ water dispenser leaks after getting a glass of water, how do i fix this problem


    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.

    Kitchenaid model ksrs25ilss02 water filter


    Are you saying water is dripping out the ice dispenser or the water dispenser, a water filter would have nothing to do with this, it only filters water, it does not pump water nor does it shut it off. If water
    is dripping from the ice dispenser, it is because the rubber gasket
    is bad on the flap that seals after ice is dispensed. If water is dripping
    from the water dispenser, it is the shut off for the water, you can put a glass under it and push for water a few times,on and off and see if this makes it stop, if not you would need to have this replaced. Any questions please post back.

    Kitchen Aid Super Ba refrig..water dripping from water spout !


    To stop the dripping now, turn the water off.

    The problem is there is either mineral caught in the seat of the dispenser valve, or the dispenser valve seat has a bad place in it. Removal and cleaning/replacement is required.

    Problems with Black & Decker #900144 TopLoad Water Dispenser: It is dripping water constantly and the item is only 4 mnths old


    you have to open it up and look where the water is dripping from. it could be from the rubber hoses that connects the tank to the faucets.

    if it's on the hoses, that would be easy to replace, but sometimes the leak would come from the stainless tank whiich would be very hard to replace.
