Refrigerator Troubleshooting - Water Dripping from Ice Chute

Last Update Date : Apr 23. 2019

Symptom: Ice chute freezing or water dripping from ice chute flipper.


Issue: When the refrigerator dispenses crushed ice, there is a residual amount of crushed ice remaining in the cutting blades in the ice bucket and in the ice chute path just before the flapper. When this happens, the ice will eventually melt and the water will travel down the ice chute and past the flapper. The water will then drain to the bottom of the Ice/Water Dispenser and to the floor. 


Solution: Dispense cubed ice. This will flush the remaining crushed ice into the glass. Another option is to wait a few minutes for the remaining crushed ice to melt and dispense ice. A small amount of water will come out when the flapper is opened.
