Customer Question

My maytag refrigerator model MF12269VEB4 is leaking by the back where you change the filter. I changed the filter, and it's been leaking ever since. I've taken the filter out and rinsed the top of the filter out and put it back in. It was fine for a few hours then it started to leak again. It's dripping down the back of the frig under the drawer and freezing up. What is causing this?

Either the filter you got was just bad and isn't sealing up properly or the filter receptacle is going bad and not sealing with the filter. If you have the old filter, try installing that and see if it keeps leaking. If you don't have the old filter, then return the filter and tell them it came faulty. Try again and if it leaks still then you know the filter receptacle needs to be replaced.
