Your Precious Words:
EACH TIME AFTER USING WATER DISPENSER, IT DRIPS ABOUT 6-7 DROPS. THE TRAY FILLS UP AFTER AWHILE AND WATER IS ON THE FLOOR. I CHANGED TO DISPENSER LEVR/ACTUATOR BUT THAT DID NOT STOP THE DRIPPING. WHAT’S UP?

Hi Michael,

This is a classic case of air trapped in the refrigerator’s water tubing. This can occur for a variety of reasons, including air bubbles in the incoming water supply to the refrigerator that travel in with the water. If the air bubble happens to be in a part of the tubing that is outside the refrigerated compartment (for example, the tubing in the door), it warms up and expands, pushing water out the dispenser in dribbles and drops like you’re seeing.

The cure is to simply run a bunch of water through the dispenser to purge the air from the system. Usually a gallon is sufficient.
