  • Why do water blocks freeze in Minecraft?

  • How do I fix a water block that is running?

  • The water that is running is being treated like a non-source water block. Pouring a bucket of water onto the block in question will turn it into a soure block. If you’ve already placed blocks beneath the water (1 block below) as you say you have, you should be able to apply the buckets to those blocks as well and fix the water above it.
