What Causes Refrigerator Leaks

A pool of water at the bottom of the refrigerator can be a cause for concern for just about any homeowner, which is why it’s important to make sure that you act as soon as possible. First, it’s important to talk about what actually causes said leaks. Generally, one of the biggest sources of issues is a leaky water supply line. This tube that connects the fridge and kitchen sink water line can actually loosen over time, resulting in some seepage. Other common sources of water leaks from your fridge include condensation leaks. Generally, condensation should drain in another specific tube above the drip pan below the unit. However, for one reason or another, this can become obstructed, resulting in the water leaking onto the nearby floor. Some of these issues are more complex to fix than others. Of course, DIY refrigerator repair isn’t really feasible, so you need to find appliance repair professionals to actually remove said leak.

Finding The Source Of A Leak

However, to save time for both your contractor and yourself, you can do a little bit of initial scouting in order to try and pinpoint where the leak is coming from. A good place to start in this regard is making sure that you take the time to remove all food items from the refrigerator to do a proper inspection. In some cases, you may be able to find sources of obstruction or other issues that may be leading to your leak.

With this said, this isn’t guaranteed to work, and you don’t want to accidentally cause more damage trying to find where the leak has originated. Beyond this, your best course of action is to just wait for professionals.
