Mine did the same thing. Pull refrigerator out so that you can access the back. Take off lower dust cover , it's black and has several small screws. Once removed, you can see a pvc pipe running from top to bottom. Remove screw from clamp that holds pvc pipe vertical. Remove pvc pipe from top of refrigerator, then remove the top piece that was attached to pvc pipe. You may need to turn 1/4 turn counter clockwise to remove. Once removed, clean these 2 pieces thoroughly to remove any blockages. Install in reverse order and hopefully this fixes your water problem. This pvc pipe runs to a pan that water pools in and evaporates. If the water can't get here, it has to go somewhere.
The problem is that the pipe that feeds the filtered water is broken. It is a common problem. If you are handy you can fix it. You buy an 8mm press fit elbow. Google it. If you want to see what these are you need to look under the fridge. The best way to do this is tilt the fridge to one side and then put a piece of wood under the gap. Tilt the other way and put wood under the other side. Keep doing this until you can see the white pipe under the corner of the door. Your will see a that the pipe is cracked at the bend. You need to fit the 8mm elbow onto the cracked pipe. This is not easy. Make sure that you wind the adjustable feet down so that the fridge does not crush the elbow. On my fridge the pipe was brittle and weak. I took a piece from the filler end. If you look under you will see a clear pipe that is joined to the white pipe. That joiner is an 8mm push fit joiner. You need a 90degree version to join at the cracked bit. Once you have the joiner, carefully cut the crack through and push the joiner UP first, then fit the other piece in. Be careful to tuck the finished pipe away. When I did it the fridge crushed the joiner when I took away the timber.
There should be a small valve behind the fridge. Pull it out from the wall, and look behind it with a flashlight. They are usually near the floor at the wall. Turn clockwise to close it. In older homes, the water line can be run under cabinets to under the kitchen sink where water pipes are..
Old installations use 1/4 inch copper tubing. Newer ones use 1/4 inch nylon. Some use flexible white hoses.
If you close the valve and it still drips, then the entire water system will have to be closed off to replace the valve. These valves and new connection kits are available at sears, home depot and lowes.
hello. I am assumming that your model has the ice and water dispenser. Not all models do. On the rear of these models with the ice and water feature you will find a small [1/4 inch] line that has to be connected to a cold water supply source. If you go to most any hardware store you can get the little kit necessary to make this connection. The kit consists of a length of 1/4 inch tubing, the connector to attach to the tube at the rear of your appliance, a valve and a tapping kit to tap into your closest cold water source. If the fridge is near the kitchen sink, you may choose to connect under the sink. If not, make sure you purchase a kit with enough 1/4 inch tubing to reach your nearest cold water pipe. J.
The blue tube is called food grade water pipe. This pipe should be connected to the back of fridge (Bottom RH Side to allow water into the unit). It will either have a push in fitting or require a flare connection. The only other pipe is the clear (white) one connected at the bottom of freezer door that feeds the water dispensor.
Check diameter of pipe. Suspect its quarter inch. You will then probably need to purchase e.g. from ebay etc a 1/4'' to 3/4'' adapter which will allow you to connect your fridge pipe to a typical water pipe connector (i.e. similar connecting a washing machine), assuming you already have an available water conenction in the lcoation of the fridge!
I assume that you checked the water is coming out of the 1/4 inch copper /pvc piping that connects to the water line from the refrigerator' s water inlet pipe. In order for water & ice to come out 2 things have to be set correctly. 1. Make sure that a water filter is indeed installed and that it hasn't been there installed for more than 2 years as it could be clogged.
2. make sure that the small shut-off valve in the back of the fridge is turned on!
I too had to scratch my head to locate where to connect the water line for the ice maker. Looking at the rear of the frig on the bottom right you will see a white plastic cover that the black plastic line goes into. There is a screw on the right side. Undo the screw and then pry off the white plastic cover. You will see a black plastic cap over the threaded water line connector. This is where you connect you line as approprite. I hooked up the line and turned the water supply back on and then you have to turn on the ice maker. I works great. Problem is the manual is not clear at all. Guess they assumed that the installler would be hooking it up. Once you know what to do is is a piece of cake. Good Luck. Doug S. in Poland, OH
