So you went to grab the milk out of your fridge this morning and ended up with wet slippers! Leaky fridges can ruin your morning, but if you woke up today and asked yourself, “Why is my fridge leaking water?”, you’ve come to the right place!
Let’s start with the two easiest problems and solutions!
Now We Aren’t Saying it’s Your Fault…
…but did you leave your fridge door open? If so, this will create condensation as your fridge works double time to keep your food cool. Clean it up, shut it tight and you are good to go!
Mother Nature is to Blame
If the weather has been unusually humid recently, your drain pan may be filling up too quickly. Simply manually empty your drain pan every so often. If this happens repeatedly, you may need to invest in a dehumidifier for your kitchen.
Now let’s move on to the more serious issues.
Drained Drain Pan
If your fridge is on the older side, your drain pan may need to be replaced. The drain pan holds the condensation created by the fridge until it evaporates, so if it cracks – this water has nowhere to go but your nice, clean floor. If you see a crack, it will need to be replaced.
Water Filter Problems
Ice cold water is a delicacy – but not on your floor. If none of the above solutions sound like your problem, then you may need to call in a professional. Lots of issues can arise with built-in water filters including a loose connection or even a broken line!
