It was time to replace the water filter in my refrigerator. I did so without issue (the water dispenser in the door immediately worked fine, etc.). However, the next day the ice maker in the freezer had overflowed like crazy. I checked the inlet valve and it was leaking severely, so I replaced it and everything is back to normal.
The question is, is this a strange coincidence or is there some reason that replacing the filter would break the inlet valve?
