Side by side whirlpool refrigerator leaking water puddle in front on floor no loose connections and no signs of water from any part of refrigerator


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There are several areas where you may have a leak.

Let's check it out:

You are going to have to pull the unit out so you can inspect what is going on.

Turn the leveling screws counter clock wise to raise them. Pull the unit out so you may get behind it.

25576703-vzgcvxho43azc0x10cxafhpi-5-0.jpg 1.) Observe the plastic tubing going to the water dispenser.
The plastic tubing after time get dry rot. Have someone push the water dispenser and observe the tubing for leaks. But before this put a paper towel under the bottom hinge of the freezer door.

So, if you observe water coming from the tubing that is your problem.

Or if the paper towel in the front is wet, then you have a major problem. There is a leak in the door tubing which is only repairable by replacing the door, which is several hundred dollars plus service - $600.00. You can disconnect the contacts on the larger tubing valve and not use the water dispenser.

Ok, no leaks. Then you have a drain pain leak. Un-plug the unit. Remove the lower bottom cover in the back. Just several screws. Inspect the drain pan. Is there a water line from the pan to the front of your unit.? Repair the drain pan with duct tape and a silicone adhesive.

Inspect the bottom of your freezer. If there is ice then you have a different problem.

Keep me informed. Glen Burnie, MD., Email goodwinpeg@aol.com, Phone: 414-306-1362.

How to repair disc-type faucets


DISC-TYPE FAUCETS

  • Disc faucets may have one or two handles. The water is controlled by openings in the two discs. When the discs are rotated to align, the water flows; when the discs are misaligned, the water shuts off. If the discs wear, the worn discs cause the faucet to leak. Simply turning the handles harder will not stop the leak.

  • To repair a leak in a two-handle disc faucet, turn off the water and remove the handle on the side that's leaking.

  • Use pliers to pull the disc assembly out of the faucet.

  • Beneath the disc unit is the seat assembly, or seal. Replacing this special O-ring may stop the leak.

  • You may need to install a whole new disc assembly for faucets that have been used over a long period of time. In this case, all moving parts of the faucet will have been replaced and should last as long as the original discs did. The parts of some disc units snap apart into a separate bonnet assembly and bottom cap.

  • To repair a leaking single-handle disc, turn off both the hot and cold water and remove the handle to expose the disc assembly. Take out the screws to lift the assembly out of the faucet.

  • You'll notice that beneath the disc unit are three O-ring seals. Though unlikely, water could be leaking between the unit and one of these seals. In this case, you may be able to stop the leak by cleaning the disc assembly and faucet body and installing a new set of seals. If that doesn't work, the entire disc unit must be replaced. This will renew all moving parts.

  • Replacing the unit is fairly simple. Place the three O-rings into their recesses in the bottom of the disc unit. Then install the unit and tighten the screws. Finally, replace the handle–and you're done!

Seems that the bottom is leaking. Water is hot. Should I replace the thermostat?


Leaking is not repairable, replace the unit, UNLESS the water is coming from an overflow or overheat circuit, in which case, lower the temp and test again.

Insinkerator leaks water from the bottom. this is when water runs through. no difference if the unit is running or not


There is no repair, just replace the unit. Once they start leaking, that is fatal. you could not repair for less than replacement of the unit.

Badger 5 is leaking from bottom of unit... is this repairable? Thanks Chad


If it is leaking from the bottom and not from the top and running down the side then it is only repaiable by replacing the disposal, If it the top leaking and running down the side, then it can be rpaired by replacing the rubber gasket on the top.

WATER IS LEAKING FROM THE BOTTOM. IT'S COMING FROM FROM THE PUMP.


This is repaired by pulling the unit out and working from the rear and underneath, check for the leak, either replace the pump or gasket or hose, depending on where the leak is coming from. You may need some star screwdriver type tool.

My Air conditioner leaks water


All A/C units drain water and need a clear path to drain water.
If window unit the unit MUST lean to the outside so the condensation water can drain that direction and insure the drain hole is clear of debree.
If an indoor central a/c unit the drain must be clogged the unit is leaning away from drain or the pipe going to the drain is clogged somewhere as it exits house. Cant drain if doesn't have a clear path to do it's job. Doubt it's a problem with the brand.
