When a refrigerator leaks water like yours, it is common for the problem to be nothing more than a clogged defrost drain. When the unit defrosts itself, the frost melt water drips into a pan underneath the evaporator in the freezer, and goes through a tube from there to the bottom outside of the unit. Since the water cant go down this drain, it backs up on the freezer floor, then eventually the kitchen floor.

Why is there water leaking under the dash


If it's leaking near the glove box, it's probably the heater.
If it leaks at the foot of the driver it may be a clogged drain near the windshield wipers under the hood. Also could be a clogged drain around the sun roof.
First you can test the drains with a cup of water poured in the drain holes. You should see the water draining out under the car, usually near the tires.
They can be cleaned out with a little bit of air from a compressor.
Hope this helps.

Check the pipe that drains the water from the avaperator (the thing that gets cold inside on the fridge)
periodically your fridge will defrost and the water should drip through a tube and collect at the rear of the fridge
If the pipe is blocked the water collects inside at the bottom ( under the crisper)

Refrigerator leaking water


You gave no manufacturer name or model number so this is only a guess: If you refrigerator is a self defrosting one, it will periodically, allow ice building up in it to turn to water which naturally drips to the lowest point. Most refrigerators have a drain below the vegetable bins on the bottom. That is probably where the water is coming from. Solutions include putting a shallow baking pan under the bins or under the refrigerator to catch the water, then empty it periodically.

I have an insinkerator hot water dispenser with stainless steel tank, and the tank is now leaking. I'm wondering if it can be fixed or needs to be replaced


Replace water heater if tank wall is leaking.
These things have short warranty period.
Stainless steel will theoretically last longer, but steel tank water heaters have replaceable anode rod to prevent rust-out.

Be sure to recycle the old metal.

Water under crisper drawers


I am pretty sure you are having a defrost drain blockage problem. Most refrigerators defrost every eight hours and over a period of time the drain line that comes down from freezer into a cup like object top middle and back of the fresh food section (depending on the style refrigerator you have).Click Here=> Leaking Refrigerators Just What may Be Happening

Water is leaking under the refrigerator. This is


If everything else on the refrigerator seems fine (freezing and refrigerating are fine), then you probably have a problem with the drain hose under the evaporator coil. On frost free freezers, there is a heater that comes on periodically to melt off all the frost on the evaporator coil, and that defrosted frost (water) goes out a drain hose and collects in a pan at the back of the unit where it can evaporate.

Either the drain is clogged with ice inside the freezer, (in which case you might notice ice building up on the bottom of the freezer, or perhaps water collecting on the bottom of the refrigerator if your freezer is on top) OR there is something wrong with the pan at the back of the refrigerator, like a crack, or it somehow got tilted so that the water pours out. It is located behind the panel on the back.

Or perhaps, and this would really ****, the water line that supplies your ice maker is leaking, if you have one. If you do have one, I would recommend turning the water line to the fridge off before pulling the fridge out.

Refrigerator leaks


Could be nothing is broken. There is a drip pan under the refrigerator. It accepts water from the defroster. The water is supposed to evaporate before it gets full. It ought to be cleaned periodically, as it gets nasty with mold. Could be the pan is displaced or cracked.
