After replacing the water filter, the water continues to dispense after letting the dispenser go. Strong flow at first and then a trickle, eventually stopping. I purged the water lines and then replaced the solenoid valve with no luck. What else could it be?
Answer Hello Chris,
If the water pressure to the valve is low or the new valve is defective, there will be residual runtime, (3 seconds after release is the symptom), just as there is when air gets in the system. There is also the possibility of a loose water line or a pin hole in a water line allowing air into the system. It is important to throw out about 2 gallons to ensure all of the system is properly purged.
Water constantly runs out of the spout at the dispenser.
Answer Hello Ed. If there is power coming to the valve, you will need to check the micro-switch in the freezer door. If there is no power, and you have to turn off the water to stop it, you will need to replace the water valve on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
