Is this leak a constant leak or just when you are calling for chilled water?

And can you please check the model number once again .

it is on the interior fresh food section wall.

I ask because the number of 795.5121012 does not come up as a good number.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The leak is not constant, just when I get water.
the model # from the inside of the refrigerator is: 795.51313.012

Thank you!
Give me a minute or two to pull up information on this model

ok now the bad part the tubing that goes up into the door for the chilled water dispenser is not a separate replaceable part.

to replace the tubing you have to order an entire new freezer door assembly.

I`m showing the door part number from LG is ADC72986483 But I also show at three different appliance parts dealers that the part is no longer available.

now I know this is NOT what you anted to hear .

But I have no control over the manufacture no longer manufacturing a part.

By law appliance manufactures only have to keep replacement parts for 7 years.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

If you have any questions just let me know.
