Water dispenser turn on intermittently for roughly 4 seconds. I place an empty cup there at night and by morning it's full. What part shall I replace? Thank you.

Here's the parts diagram for your model:

Here's the wiring diagram for your model: https://ecommcdnprod.azureedge.net/...roduct_support/FPH/FPHS2699PF4A/A01461101.pdf

When this problem happens its usually either the dispenser module or main control board. Lock the dispenser control and see if it still intermittently shoots water out.

Here's the dispenser module for your model:

Here's the main control board for your model:

Jake,
Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I've already swapped out both parts you suggest and the problem continued. Is there another option? Thank you.

Ok, pull the refrigerator out from the wall, then remove the lower rear access panel and locate the water inlet valve and remove the electrical connector to the YELLOW solenoid and leave it disconnected and see if it still randomly shots out water from the water dispenser.

Here's the water inlet valve for your model:

Good! We found the problem, its the water inlet valve that's causing it, because no electrically is going to it, and the diaphragm inside that valve is opening intermittently which equals failing.
