Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. IS it steadily dripping out?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Yes. I think it's actually the water outlet nozzle
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 10 months ago.
Yes I bet it is and that is common you have a leaky water valve. The valve where the water connects o the unit will need to be replaced to fix that issue. Basically it is like a drippy faucet and the shut off (the valve) is leaking through.

What is the part number?? How is it replaced? From the front
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 10 months ago.
I would need the model and you would replace it from behind the unit
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
MRF610A. Do you take off the front of the water dispenser panel to access the valve? Can I turn off dispensing function meantime?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Just worked out how to turn off dispenser.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 10 months ago.
You need to pull the unit out and get at the water shut off valve to the refrigerator. There is a water line that goes from the source to the water valve behind the unit (nothing from the front). You need to contact a local supplier for the part. Since I am not in Australia you should call this place to order the water valve +61 8 8231 3369
