Built-in Internal Dispenser Water Collects in Dispenser Drip Tray

Core Issue:

  • Built-In (BI) model has water leaking from internal dispenser
  • Water collecting in Drip Tray in a BI unit
  • When to empty BI internal dispenser drip tray


As water is used out of the water tank in a Built-In (BI) internal dispenser, warmer water enters to replenish the tank.

  • The warmer water causes the water tank to expand.
  • As the water cools the water tank contracts.
  • This may force some water out of the tube that will drip into the dispenser drip tray.
  • This is normal product operation.
  • Empty the drip tray as needed.
