Question about Refrigerators
at the back of the fridge there is a water drain hole. this will be blocked. you will have to unblock by pushing a thin wire etc down it, then pour a little warm water down to confirm it has been unblocked. if otherwise
There are two issues that may cause leaks near the door of your fridge. The fridge door may not close in full or the rubber gasket which encompasses the door frame may be clogged or torn, thus causing condensation and leaks. To repair this problem, you need to discover the faulty component. If the gasket is dirty, clean it by rinsing with a sponge. Check if an item in the refrigerator is preventing the door from closing properly. If the gasket is somehow impaired, replace it. When buying a new gasket, it is best to buy one that matches your fridge model or type of door. The more general the gasket, the harder it is to install it.
If the leak caused by the gasket, you may have to check the door and ensure that it closes tightly. If it does not close well, you may use the door screws and bolts to fix the problem. Another remedy is to put the refrigerator at a slight angle. Some fridges have adjustable legs, but if your model does not have such, you may want to buy some wooden shims or sheets of plywood and put them beneath the fridge.
Fridge Leaks due to the Drain Pan
The drain pan functions to catch water from condensation so that it does not leak over the floor of your kitchen. If the drain pan is somehow damaged, it may be the reason why you have a puddle of water around the fridge. The pan is located underneath the fridge. Pull it off, drain the condensed water from it, and check if there are any punctures into it. If there are some, you should buy a new pan or somehow repair the current one. One possible way to check your drain pan is to fill it with tap water once you have cleaned it.
