Water dispenser conditnues to drip after releasing the button
Sub-Zero 695/0 Side by side. We are experiencing that the after water dispenser button is released that water continues to drip for a few seconds and eventually stops dripping. I am thinking it is a seal or gasket that is worn but is there a set I can buy that I can change out?

Bernie, Your water dispenser is controlled by a solenoid valve that is often in tandem with the ice maker water valve (meaning two valves side by side). Check and make sure the water is dripping from the water outlet tube only, in which case the solenoid valve is leaking. However...sometimes what happens is that the door that isolates the ice shoot (and the inside of the freezer) from the outside can get stuck open. Either blocked, mineral build up, broken etc..and water (melting ice) will drip down and out. This can lead to other problems so be sure the flapper door from the ice dispensor is ALL the way closed.
maybe ice formed around chute from leaky air seal??? warm area with hair dryer blowing hot air up into chute for 10 minutes. check for water and wipe all off. unplug refg and plug in after 3 minutes to reset electronics
if helpful please rate me. if not please tell me more.
Does this model have a light button? (I know the 685 and the 695 do.) If it does, press and hold the Light button until all the LEDs light up once. This takes about 5 seconds. (Repeating the process will reenable the lock.)
remove the crisper drawers and you will see a drain trough and a drain line . One or both is most likely blocked. If you pull the drain line off the trough usually you can clear it with a turkey baster filled with hot water
try this... the water valve in your sub. is located in the upper part. ( close to the condenser fan motor. yes the new one.) tell your TECH to test the water dispenser and by pass the ice maker. the leak is on top part . running all the way dow. good luck.............................LEAVE YOUR COMMENT IF IT WAS GOOD FOR YOU....
