Freezer leaks water

Issue description:

Refrigerators have become an integral part of life, and breaking it down is a lot of hassle. One of the most common breakdowns is that the unit starts to leak. A puddle can form under or inside the device. If at the same time it continues to function normally, you need to figure out why the refrigerator is leaking. Most often, the problem is not too serious, and it is easy to fix it yourself or with the help of a specialist.

Freezer leaks water


If it is dry inside, there are no puddles under the boxes for vegetables and fruits, the walls are in normal condition - without icing, frost, then the drainage pipe may have come off, the water, instead of collecting in a special container, flows to the floor. It is also likely that the reservoir itself for collecting liquid has broken or cracked. This happens if the refrigerator has been transported or moved. To check the location of the tube and the integrity of the tank, you need to move the unit back. The pipe is adjusted by hand, the help of a specialist may be needed to change the reservoir.

If there is a lot of snow and strong ice inside the freezer compartment of the device with the no-frost function, then the evaporator is most likely broken. In this case, ice forms in the refrigerator, as in a simple model. In this case, water can accumulate under the device. When you open the freezer compartment of the no-frost refrigerator, water flows from the freezer, as under the influence of heat, the ice begins to actively melt and drain into the drainage hole. But the reservoir is not designed for such a large volume of water, therefore it quickly overflows, as a result a characteristic puddle appears on the floor. The problem is solved by replacing the evaporator. It is not recommended to do this on your own; it is better to contact a specialist in the repair of household appliances.
