I have a KitchenAid Model KSRS25FGWH04
Refrigerator. It sprang a leak in the water inlet valve for the ice maker/water dispenser. I dutifully ordered a replacement and installed this afternoon.
When I hooked up the water lines and the electrical connectors and proceeded to plug it in all seemed fine. Then I turned the shutoff valve back on and all of a sudden water came pouring out the dispenser. No way to stop it short of turning off the shutoff valve at the wall. I am really stumped. Zero problems with the water dispenser before this. The ice maker works fine, the lights come on when the ice or water levers are depressed. No apparent problem with the dispenser lever.
Any ideas on what the problem might be?
