Jenn-Air fridge JCD2389DES water leaks from water dispenser

3 posts in this topic

Water leaks from my water dispenser both when the ice maker refills and shuts off, or after dispensing water. I am suspecting a water valve is bad.Looking up parts over in the parts deparment I found this as a primary suspect. http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=914955 But I also found this:http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=936009 Is the second a better (aftermarket, 3rd party, redesigned) replacement for the 1st, or are both parts used in this model fridge. TIA.

I would suspect the voltage that controls the water inlet valve. The key diagnostic question to answer here is:

Does the water inlet valve still have 120v on it when the water continues to leak? If so, then it's a control problem; if not, then replace the valve.

maytag used to have a kit available for this problem,came with a new control board for the dispenser and a new water valve,call them for part number as they were color sensitive.
