how much water and how often? The pan is there for defrost water so about a cup 2-3 times a day is pretty normal
you closed the water line and your still getting that much?
If the tap is off and hours later your getting that much it means your coil is sweating a LOT ... you either have an air leak and should see some frost somewhere inside it or your low on Freon and instead of freezing up like it should it's sweating
I can't go back on chat once I start like this ... not sure if you can. what do you mean by tap? Do you mean where the water comes into the fridge or do you have some kind of shut off on the defrost drain line.
There's only 2 ways water can leak on a fridge either defrost water or a water line/valve leak. If you shut off the supply line this will tell you which it is. easily
ohhh ..... no if it's dripping from the grey tube it's coming from somewhere ... do you see any ice inside near the maker? You should have some ice if it's dripping in the fridge. If it not then it's likely a cracked valve that is spraying there. They crack so small that you can barely see the stream .... I have spent 20 mins looking for the source before. They will even spray 2-5 feet. Soo much pressure
yea it's a cracked valve or line .... a flashlight you might catch it ... but I bet the valve is cracked ..... usually a line would only leak when used. The valve will leak all the time in a small stream the size of a piece of thread or less ... it would take a couple hours to fill the drip pan
there is only one water valve it serves both the dispenser and icemaker
Thanks so much. If you need anything in the future lemme know. Have a good weekend.
