I suspect that your inlet water solenoid is not closing all the way and letting water seep past the valve. When the ice maker rotates, it hits a micro switch that operates the solenoid.This is just an electromagnet that pulls a shaft out of the way of the water flow. Spring pressure snaps it back in place when the power is taken off of the solenoid. The spring has gotten weak or is being blocked by water sediment. You are going to have to replace that solenoid.

What causes my ice maker to drip water?


HI,

This could be either the ice maker is old and the finish inside has depleted, the water valve is going bad or you had a jammed ice cube and now it overfilled. Many different reason this could happen. Does the ice cubes stick together with a bridge? Is the drip coming from the ice maker head unit? How is the ice in the pan its stored in, stuck together? In the pan, has the ice glaciered together? Need more information please. Thanks

Ice maker drips water into ice tray


Probably the solenoid valve leaks(electric valve that opens when the ice maker calls for water) and overflood the ice maker,the only way to fix this is replacing the solenoid.

Top mont refige; ice maker works but allows water


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it can freeze and block the tube or keep dripping into the ice mold. . You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Ice maker seems to be dripping water onto ice in ice container


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.

Watch it when it fills with water. The fill tube could also be stopped up with ice. The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze.

Ice maker drips water


In most of theses cases the dripping is caused by the molding in the ice maker cracking and the water is wicked out. On some ice makers you can replace the complete molding but its usually easier to just replace the ice maker.
