Having a leaking refrigerator is a problem that can be hard to fix if you don’t know the source of it, which is why our refrigerator repair company in Chadds Ford has prepared today’s article, which will outline the possible parts behind a refrigerator leak and how to remedy the problem. Do not hesitate to give us a call if you’ve located the problem but are unable to fix it and we will send a technician over as soon as possible.


Ice maker

If your unit is equipped with an ice maker, the leak you are seeing might be coming from that part. This will often be the case if you notice water under your refrigerator. Access the ice maker and check to see that there are no cracks in the hose connecting your ice making machine to the water line. Replace defective parts if necessary.


Drain pan

If you see water under your fridge and you already checked out your ice maker, take a look at your drain pan, as the problem might be coming from that part. If your pan is in bad shape, you will have to change it, which shouldn’t be too hard.


Defrost drain

A lot of refrigerators also come stacked with a freezer on top of them, which means they will have a defrost function and a defrost drain. If that drain becomes clogged, the water created by the defrosting cycle will leak out of your unit. Fortunately, a blocked defrost drain is easy to wash. Simply take it out and clean it with hot water. If the debris are too hard, a piece of hard metal can be used.


Water Filter

If your device is equipped with a water filtration system, check it out to see if there are any drips or leaks. Also make sure to see it is connected to your water line correctly and readjust it if necessary.
