Thank you for using Just Answer. I will be glad to assist you in your answer. Think about safety when doing repairs, electric, water, gas, ect.


Check the filter to make sure it is not cracked. Then keep filter out, and press the dispenser water lever again with the fridge door open. Does the filter housing leak without the filter?
