I have a Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator with ice/water

Customer Question
dispenser. Water flows fine...
I have a Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator with ice/water dispenser. Water flows fine but the lever on the dispenser will not stop the flow of water when pressure is released...therefore water pours onto the floor. It stops after numbers hits against it. I cannot find this problem and answer in my manual.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
where would I find the model number? I looked everywhere and on the booklet when i gave you that number.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
After seeing your fees on my credit card statement, I called your number. The fellow on the phone was difficult to hear as he was with many others also answering calls. He has directed me to login and says your answer is there. It is not...now that I have logged in and I see now that your note was written on Feb 16 re: a model number. I did not receive any help from you on the 16th and quite obviously you are not online now to answer me now. I would like the $28 to be returned to me. i will take my chances with another serviceman !! You guys are ridiculous !!!

jsi 26 ?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

you never received any help from me because you never replied back to give me a model number until 6 min ago.

How do you expect me to give you an answer if you never even tell me the model number of the appliance your question is on?

And Jsi26 is not a model number either

or LGUS2642LP2
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I did not realize i would be chatting with you on the 16th when I sent the question...thought it was coming via e mail !!!
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

Great yes LGUS2642LP2 is the model number.

So your saying that you have to hit the pressure pad to get the chilled water to stop correct?

And does the same thing happen to the ice cubes if you call for ice.

No we only converse on this web site with customers.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The ice cubes do stop when the pressure is released. The water continues flowing....and whether it stops on its own...or when I hit it several times, is questionable. I just know I wont' chance it again. For awhile, it happened occasionally...and I thought 'user error' or something, but now is just about every time. I don't trust it. The way I receive water now is to get ice and let it thaw !!!
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

ok that was going to be my next question if you were 100% sure it has anything to do with hitting the pad.

I suspect it is not a pad issue ,because the same pad is used for ice cubes also.

Are you on a well ? or have a reverse osmosis water filter system?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
neither of those
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

ok so just a city water connection with constant water pressure to the home?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

ok I suspect that your issue is a weak solenoid on the dual water inlet valve and that it is slow at closing .

And thus it gives you water until it fully closes.

This would be a issue where the dual water inlet valve assembly in the rear of the unit will need to be replaced.

The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau.
They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year!
They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!

This link also has a video on replacing the water valve assembly in the rear of the unit.

This can be replaced with basic hand tools. If you have any questions just reply back.
