Water dispenser in front door works fine plenty of water pressure. When not being used it drips out about every 10 seconds. Could this be a bad water valve not closing all the way?
Answer Hello John,
Only two things can cause this: A bad water valve and a pinhole allowing air into the water dispense system. In the case of the pinhole, this is normally accompanied by the complaint of a water leak. Otherwise the water valve 2188542 normally corrects the issue.
Ice maker water valve leaking. If water pressure was low wouldn't water dispenser valve leak also ?
If the icemaker water valve is leaking but the dispenser valve is not then the valve would need to be replaced. Yes low water pressure would cause either of them to stick open and not just one.
Hello, My refrigerator is making ice but not dispensing water. Is it the water inlet valve or is there something else I should check? Thanks
Answer Hello Khan,
You should remove the water line at the bottom of the door and put it in a shallow pan and see if water will dispense into it, with the freezer door switch closed. If not, you can remove the output line from the water valve and hold the water valve over a pan and have someone try the dispense. If it will now dispense from the valve, the water tank in the bottom of the fresh food compartment is frozen. Pointing a hair dryer at it for about 15 minutes will thaw it out. The fresh food setting should be set one number COLDER and the freezer setting to one number warmer to prevent it from freezing again. If water still didn't come out of the4 water valve, verify voltage is getting to the valve. If it is, replace the valve 2188542. If not, you need to go to the dispense area in the front of the freezer door and check the dispense bracket 2180226 for broken micro switch mounting pins.
