Why Is My Refrigerator Leaking Water?

As is well known, household appliances tend to break down at the most inopportune moment, just when you simply can’t do without them. Refrigerators are no exception in this regard, what to do when the refrigerator leaks and why it happens – we try to deal with in our article.

Well, you noticed that your reliable refrigerator leaked. First, let’s examine the refrigerator on our own and determine the source of the leak. Possible causes of water leaking slightly from the refrigerator:

A malfunction in the drainage system. Perhaps a moving drain pipe or a broken water container. Detect this malfunction and may be the most by pushing the refrigerator and looking at the back of it. It is quite possible to enter your own to separate the drain tubes. Most of these breakdowns occur after transporting the refrigerator or simply moving it from place to place, accidentally damaging the drain tube and water collection tank.

Failure of the freezer compartment in a refrigerator with a no-frost system. You can also determine it visually by examining the walls of the freezer compartment. If they are covered with a thick layer of ice, then the fridge no-frost occurs due to the malfunction of the heater of the evaporator coil. In this case, it is necessary to call a service center and replace the damaged parts.

Why is there water leaking from my fridge?
If the refrigerator leaks from the bottom not only, but also in a reasonable amount, the problem may be in the following:

Deterioration of the seal on the refrigerator door. In this case, the refrigerator door closes tightly and gradually lets warm air in, forcing the refrigerator to operate at an increased load. After all, frost forms on the walls, which in turn thaws under the influence of the same warm air. As a result, water forms over the refrigerator, which partially drains from the drain hole and partially remains in the refrigerated space. The refrigerator’s storage space can be replaced with a rubber gasket.

The refrigerator is improperly installed, causing its door to be closed and letting warm air in freely, which causes water to form inside and in the refrigerator. In this case, the refrigerator needs to be leveled by chamfering.

In any case, you should not delay the repair. As soon as you find water under or inside the refrigerator, it should be lifted, cleaned and checked for defects. If the cause of the leak is not recognized, you need to call San Diego Appliance Repair Company. Do not think that wiping the accumulated water alone will solve the problem of a refrigerator leak – having accumulated on its internal parts, it will eventually destroy them and gradually lead to complete disrepair. And then the cost of repair will increase manifold.
