I went to a house where the little old lady didn't speak much English. From what I gather, they woke up to a lot of water on the floor. The lady's daughter supposedly stopped the leak by pressing the dispenser lock button. What I saw was that after dispensing water, it would drip for several seconds after releasing the lever. I ran water through to bleed out any air, but still the drip. I'm figuring air is getting in but I can't find a water leak out. Has anybody have a suggestion?

could be a bad Water Inlet Valve not completely closing fast ...

Is there any external Water Filter

OR a Reverse Osmosis Water System ?

Might have a crack in the 5/16 tube or loose connection allowing air to enter.
