My Daewoo FR-291 fridge with freezer at topleaks 1/2 cup or so a day & onto floor sometimes. Hired one for $150 as told to turn ours off for 2 days. Leaked nxt day again. Thxs NZ


a thorough inspection of the tubes, filter, solenoid, ice maker and water dispenser should reveal the leaking component
also a thorough inspection of the defrost drain, drain tube, and dryer pan

Water leaking under fridge


a contant runing of water is most likely a leak in the ice maker supply hose , an intermitant drip of water is a drip pan thats full in bottom of fridge (closest to floor ) this water comes from the auto defrost cycle most times this water evaporates away , but as fridge gets older it makes more frost that needs melted hence more water ,sometimes it over comes the pan and runs to floor , a good flashlight and getting down to look underneath usually tells you source of leak

Water leaks from bottom of washer a day after I've done laundry


My guess is you have a slow leak in the inlet. Probably somewhere after the valve. Try turning the valves off between washes. If that fixes it you know it's an inlet leak. There is usually a pair rubber hoses (same connectors as a garden hose) connecting the washer to the inlet valves. In order of ease/price of fixing:
  • one of the gaskets in the hoses is cracked ($0.05)
  • one of the hoses has a crack or isn't sealing properly ($10)
  • the valve outside the washer is leaking ($15 if you DIY, $150 for plumber)
  • The connector or valve in the washer is leaking ($20-$30 if you DIY, $$$ if you pay a repairman, $0 if it's under warranty)

Water leak from under door


When your refer defrosts a couple times a day it produces about a quarter of a cup of water each time.This occurs in the freezer section.The water travels down a drain pipe (or tube) that leads to a drian pan in the bottom of the unit. It is collected and evaporates from the heat of the motor.
If the drain is plugged water will form inside the unit itself.If the drain tube has somehow moved and not allowing the water to collect in the drain pan it will go on the floor.Either way,if the drain is the problem the amount of water should be pretty small, no more than a cup or two.If you have an icemaker or ice and water through the door and the amount of water on the floor is more than a cup or two. I would find the water shutoff for the supply line(probably behind the unit in newer homes)and turn it off.Clean up the water and wait a day.If the water goes away assume that one of the plastic lines in the unit that carries water to the icemaker or door is leaking.If the water continues I would suspect the drain.The only way to check the drain is to unplug the unit and remove the cardboard back,locate the drain pan and see if water is present and that the drain line is in it's proper place.
If one of the water lines is leaking you will most likely need a service tech.
Also it's best to turn the icemaker off by lifting the arm or switch before you turn the water off for testing.

Where is it leaking inside your refrigerator ? If it is inside your refrigerator at the back then it is likely a plugged defrost drain - there is a cup in your refrigerator that collects the water and sends it to the drain line at the back and at the bottom on your defrost pan for evaporation. if this line is clogged water will overflow and leak into your fridge. In newer refrigerators this line is enclosed and you have no cup in your refrigerator. See if you can locate the cup and wiggle it or remove it and push it back in sometimes it disloges the clog.

For temperature, normal freezer temp range is 0F or colder to 10F. Optimal is 0F (-18C), you can set it colder too this gives a better recovery time in case of longer power failures. For refrigerator 34F~40F, optimal temps are 34F, again for the same reasons, the colder it is, the slower bacteria growth - 34F is optimal, without freezing your food.

Refrigerator has water leak


Had the same problem with mine. Got a technician to have a look. Inside the fridge at the back there's an overflow tray. CHeck if this is not blocked. Clear it by putting a tray behind your fridge under the overlfow pipe and pour hot water through the overflow tray inside the fridge. Sometimes food gets stuck in there and nobody thinks to clear this out. Mine was easily unblocked and now its stopped leaking.
