Moffat fridge leaks, every couple days water on floor at front of fridgee

Posted by on

1 Answer

The reason why it leaks is because the pipe that discards the water underneath the refrigerator is clogged and must be cleaned. The water normally drains through this pipe into the bottom tray of the refrigerator where this water deposit is supposed to evaporate during normal conditions. When the pipe is clogged then the water does not fall into this tray. Therefore, turn off the refrigerator (power off/ previous taking-out of all food of course!) than go behind the fridge and locate this pipe (plastic hose / if you have difficulty locate at least the tray on the bottom and than locate this pipe / to locate it you can see the little hole on the back bottom of the freezer this is where the water is supposed to get out. Put water into the hole and you can see where it falls). Clean the pipe and the problem should be solved.

Why do I have a puddle under my fridge every couple days but no sign of a drip or leak?


If it is an automatic defrost fridge the it will have a hose draining down into a container under the fridge, make sure it is draining where it should and has,not become dislodged. Some have a small tray with either pipes inside it or an electric heater. Some have a container sitting on top of the compressor, both of these are used to evaporate the water.
check to make sure there are no holes in the water catcher.
if you have an electric heater that is not functioning then the container will be already full of water and at each defrost cycle will overflow onto the floor.

A small amount of water is leaking out of the front of the refrigerator onto the floor every day and I can not fine the source of the water. Is there a drain pan and if so where is it? If it is not the...


older fridges drained water into a pan with the compressor in it, thus cooling the compressor and evaporating the water, this is located at the bottom back of the fridge. if this fridge has a water and/or ice dispensor, the water could be leaking from many a place.

There is water leaking out of my bottom freezer


Hi,
The reason for your fridge to leak water on floor sounds like your defrost drain is frozen over. When the refrigerator is going into defrost it's draining through the front instead of the drain pan. You can remove the shelves and peel off the back cover and clear the drain by pouring hot water on the frozen drain hole. If you have a boaster of some sort you could try to squirt the hot water through the venting on the bottom of the panel. Another way to point a hair dryer on the drain hole. The best method is to remove the shelves and panel and make sure the drain is clear.
Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

Water Leaking - Freezer


My mother's fridge had a leak on the freezer side in the front. I removed the cover below the doors and found a plastic coupling in the water line to the water in the door option, when anyone filled their glass with water the coupling leaked. I bought a new plastice 1/4 inch coupling and replaced the old one and the problem was solved. The coupling costs about $3.00 a Lowe's and it took about 2 min. to change.

You must pull fridge out the water valve is in the bottom back. Sounds like the valve is stuck open. You can Google your model# to find appliance parts to order new valve.

Frigidaire Side-By-Side Refrigerator Leaks Water on Floor


I don't have the same refrigerator, but had a similar issue with a GE. Melt the ice at the bottom of the freezer. I think the water comes from the auto defrost feature. There should be a hole at the back bottom of the freezer that water would go into, and run to an evaporator pan under the refrigerator. The tube may be blocked that allows this water to drain, so it is backing up in the bottom of the freezer, and overflowing through the front bottom of the freezer to your floor.
