Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

We have a LG fridge, about 5 years old. Recently we noticed small puddles of water on the floor underneath. When we pulled it out we discovered this is the result of frost build up on 2 of the copper coils in the bottom back of the fridge melting periodically. We've cleaned the black coils and vacuumed everywhere but the cycle continues, frost=melt=puddle. There is no frost build up inside the freezer and it cools fine.

I recently moved. After re-connecting my LG Fridge I noticed that you can hear the water run for several seconds before it starts to fill the glass with water. What could be the cause of this?


Usually a small leak in the water line from water valve to the water filter.
I have seen when moving a ref the movers catch the plastic water line on the back of the box on the home door to the outside and damage it.

Pull out the Ref. and inspect the tubing.

Be sure to protect your floor.

Dehumidifier leaking onto floor.


You should clean off the condensor coils with a vaccum and soft brush. Also, check up inside the area where the condensate drips into the collection reservoir (or goes directly into a hose attachment discharge) to see if something is partially obstructing the water flow and is dripping onto the floor, etc.

You might find that you've got some buildup of dust, dirt, and some other gunk that is mis-directing the water (condesate) that the dehumidifier is drawing out of the air.

Lastly, check the unit to see if it's level, but frankly, I highly doubt that's the issue, based on the 5+ years of good working service for you.

So long as the unit is still running and keeping the humidity in check, (if the above steps don't resolve the issue), I'd continue using it until it finally quits running, but I'd put a plastic boot/shoe mat under it to catch the small puddles of water.

The dehumidifier should draw the small puddles, so it'd be less expensive to get a $4 boot mat than dropping another $240+ for a new unit, as your's seems to be working fine, aside from the occaissional puddle issue.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

My refridgerator leaks water every two weeks


check to make sure the drain pan is in the right place. If it puddles up inside the bottom of the fridge first, your drain hole is plugged up. for this, you wil have to remove the access panel in the back of the freezer side to get to the drain hole. you may also have a crack in your drain pan.
