The Dispenser supply usually flows through the bottom, inside toward the back to cool the water. If the puddle is near the back. refrigerator section it's probably this water cooling arrangement. Usually. a number of the tubing loops near the back bottom edge. Connections here or tubing itself may leak. It may also be an undetected leak from the Filter housing or the filter is not properly seated or possible filter housing connections. I have had good success with paper towel detection method. Wrap
or paste, tape towel to suspect leak locations. They will soon appear and point to the apparent leak.
Was it leaking before changing the filter? It could be that the water valve in back is leaking a bit. Sometimes the valve gets a very small bit of grit in it and doesn't completely shut off. The way to tell is to remove the hose from the valve and see if water is dripping from it at the valve. If it isn't then maybe the water reservoir is partially frozen and causing a pressure build up in the reservoir. If this is the case the dripping should stop after a couple minutes. I would look at the valve.
Usually a water line & valve to turn it on/off are required & connect at the bottom rear of the fridge. Our filter is mount inside near the rear of the fresh food side & allows the water to flow through it until you push it upwards to turn & remove & change it & then allows the water to again flow after you have turned the new filter back in place. If you have a water line connected I would turn the water off while doing this the first time just in case it runs out at a pressure all over.
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.
Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.
Follow the water line from the wall to the frig, it normally goes to water filter first, from there to water valve located on right rear (in most cases) of frig. Just follow the plastic lines. Another way to find it is to follow the line from the ice maker back to the water valve.
Check the filter. See if its connected right. Sometimes the old (BAD-need replacement) filter back pressure the water and if the seal or gasket is not good enough, you will have water leak. But in this case you will notice the water path inside the fridge too.
The area above my water filter in my refrigerator is leaking. I doesn't leak until we run the water in the front of the door or the icemaker runs.I have changed the filer and the problem persists. Is there a part above the filter that needs replaced? The model # is GE TFX26ZPDABB. Thanks.
