Happy Holidays everyone, so our fridge has been running well.

But now noticed another issue, being hardwood floor saw small dripping of water on the wood.

If I am standing in front of the back, it's right below bottom left corner, could it be solenoid water valve leaking? I have not opened the back cover yet, will inspect after it.

For the time being, if I disable water connection, would it fix the leak issue? Thank you all.

You will need to pinpoint exactly where the water is dripping from, take a photo of where you see it dripping at too please, and upload it here.

Yes, turn the water supply off to your refrigerator to keep it from dripping.

Thank you Jake, water is leaking from the solenoid - now I want to completely remove water supply to the fridge which I can easily do it after removing water line to the fridge.

Problem is, even if I turn the supple line completely off, still water is dripping - can I plug it completely?

Okay so this issue is solved, how should I remove this steel braided line from the fridge side? It looks like a compression fitting.

Just tighten it there and the leak should stop.

Just get another braided water supply line, no need to combine the two.
