Thanks in advance. My fridge is a GE GSS22KGMAWW that had a water leak from the ice maker chute. Fixed by replacing water inlet valve, but now when ice maker fills with water, water also comes out of the water dispenser spontaneously. Tried locking controls, unhooking wire in controls, and even unhooking power supply to the water dispenser side (blue) of the inlet valve. If I shut off the ice maker in the fridge, water to both the ice maker and the ghost water dispenser stops. Really scratching my head on this one. Thanks again

Sounds like the new water valve is defective. One of the coils is stuck open. What's the part number of the valve you replaced?

Thanks so much WR57X10023 - maybe I need to change the secondary inlet valve also? Changing the primary at least stopped the in freezer fill tube leak
