A small amount of water may come out of the dispenser after use. If the water leakage is significant and continuous, the following recommendations may help to solve the problem. When connecting a filter for the first time and after each replacement, it is necessary to remove air from the dispenser as described below. With a large empty container under the dispenser, press and release the lever at 5-second intervals. Repeat pressing until water starts to flow. When water starts to flow out, continue pushing and releasing the lever until you have drained a total of 15 liters of water. By completing these steps, you will remove air from the filter and from the water supply system to provide clean, fresh water for drinking. Air can collect in water filters that are installed on refrigerators with a connection to a water source. Try to return the filter to its original position and check if the leak has been fixed. Installation instructions are given in the user manual. If you have lost the manual, you can download it with your model number. Otherwise, it might be your defrost cycle causing this. Obviously if you shut the water line off then it is not coming from there so there is only 1 other place it could be. Every 8, 10, or 12 hours depending on your defrost timer the refrigerator will defrost itself. The frost melts into water and drains into a pan under the fridge. If the drain is plugged then it will just run into the refrigerator. If you have a freezer on top model then just remove the back wall inside the freezer, it will be a few 1/4 inch screws. If you have an ice maker then remove that too, it will be held on with 3 screws. Just look behind that wall and you will probably see ice at the bottom. Defrost the ice and pour a cup or 2 of water into the drain to make sure it is unclogged. If it is still plugged up then you have to find the clog either in the back of the fridge behind the lower cover or in the fridge compartment near the back of the roof.
