I have a rental with a fridge about 3 yr old that drips water. Occasionally it spews out a little water when i start to get ice, and it also makes an ugly glob in the ice reservior.
Is this something that a novice can fix easily or do i need to pay a professional? Last ice maker in our home cost me about $300 to fix. Thanks

On this model, You basically have an ice maker and a water valve. Does it leak when the ice maker is turned OFF? If NOT, we can rule out the water valve.

Here's the part you need:


Let us know how it goes.

Correct, i believe it does not leak when ice maker is shut off.
so.... you think this is the part i need. Is it fairly simple to replace?
If so, Thanks so much!
