Hi,

My GE Profile refrigerator occasionally drips after I've filled a cup of water. It's a slow drip, but in time will overflow the water collection tray and make a mess. I want to fix it before it becomes worst.

I need to know what part(s) I will need to replace. Your assistance on this would be appreciated.

Thank you!

DC,

First things first,
Have you replaced the water filter in the refrigerator compartment, recently ?

Part number: AP3859302

Part number: AP3859302


Dirty or clogged filters, reduce the water pressure on the system, and can cause the dispenser to drip. That should be your first check,(if you still have it, the bypass plug could be installed, as well).

Check all the connections on the water tubing, make sure they are all tight(hand tight and 1/4 turn more).

Good Luck,

I do change the filter frequently and currently the water stream is strong, which I presume means that there is no clogging. I have not pulled the fridge out yet as it sits tightly between the kitchen woodwork so I have not had a chance to inspect the tubing in the rear. What's the best way to pull it out so it come out straight? Pull by the doors?

Just to add my 2 cents...

Did you drain 2 to 3 gallons of water through the water dispenser after you replaced the water filter? Even a small amount of air in the system can cause such dripping.

Gene.

DC,

First remove the lower kick plate panel and check,clean the area, reduce damage to the floor.

Yes, using the doors will work, there should be some "fudge" space, at least 3/8 inch.

You may want to order:

Part number: AP2071735

Part number: AP2071735


Part number: AP2071736

Part number: AP2071736


in case.

You have a dual valve system, and theres no easy way to tell which valve body is "seeping" and causing the drip, if the tube connections are tight.
