Question and Answers

Q:

Water dipenser driipping

A:

According to your description, the fill valve assembly (part 218832401) will need to be replaced. Before replacing that valve, I recommend that you replace the filter and purge the water system by running about 1 gallon of water through that water dispenser in the door. If there is air trapped in the water system tubing, this will purge that air and may stop the dripping. If the dripping continues after purging the water system in this manner, then I recommend that you replace that water valve assembly.

You can order a new water valve (part 218832401) from the Sears PartsDirect website.

To replace that water valve, follow these basic steps:

  1. Unplug the refrigerator to disconnect electrical power.
  2. Shut off the water supply going to the refrigerator.
  3. Remove the water line connection on the back of the refrigerator.
  4. Remove the lower service panel on the back outside panel of the refrigerator. This will give you access to the water valve assembly.
  5. Note the location of the wiring connections and the water lines. Take a digital photo of the valve assembly if necessary before you replace it. Mark the water lines if necessary so that they can be connected properly to the new valve assembly.
  6. Disconnect the wires and the water lines from the existing valve assembly.
  7. Replace the valve and reconnect the water lines and the wires to the new valve.
  8. Replace the rear service panel.
  9. Reconnect the water supply line.
  10. Open the water supply valve for the refrigerator and check for leaks. Tighten fittings if necessary.
  11. Plug in the refrigerator.
  12. Purge a gallon or two of water through the water dispenser to eliminate air in the water system.

This information should help you fix this dispenser problem in your refrigerator. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
