Does anyone know of a way to stop the dripping of the inlet valve I have cut the pipes and re-pushed them in it went ok until I out all the back panel back on and then a steady drip rolled into a stream over the floor :) Any help would be great and off its a new valve then so be it !

I'm told after several years, they all leak.

I think it might be cheap plastic that chlorinated water degrades.
My GE same thing. I installed a new valve, and could stop the leak at the line inlet from the filter on the back of the fridge. I just took the new part back, and disconnected the water. Now use ice cube trays.
I'd have to cut, and splice in a new section and hope that doesn't leak.

Thank you I will order a new one as I like chilled water and its a lot cheaper than new fridge.

Yes Austin,

but with ours, the valve is not the trouble. It's the tube. The flared end is integral on the line end of tubing.
I use a Brita portable filtering pitcher now. I can put ice cubes in it, or any other.
If we entertain, I can load up the ice dispenser auger bin with ice from the store.
No new fridge until it dies. We pick up our first new car in ten years this evening. We're also still paying off some new furniture as it is delivered.
Yes, I gave in. My hubby and I leased a Ford Edge SEL V6 AWD on my step sons A plan discount. No Eco Boost turbo, but it's plenty peppy.
Very nice car. AWD is only one dollar extra per month. So it doesn't have the Lincoln MKX grille or other styling ques. Same car from Oakville Ontario.
Our Canadian built cars gave been good ones. My '86 Grand Prix from Ste. Therese, and both of our Impalas from Oshawa.
