4 Tips to Prevent Refrigerator Leaks | A-Tech Appliance

Refrigerators can gradually leak unnoticed and cause water damage, shock and slip hazards. Diagnosing a fridge leak is often a tricky business, and you can only hope that your culprit is a loose seal that’s causing water to pool around the unit. However, the cause of your problem could be something more mechanical. Below are a few tips for diagnosing the issue while averting future leaks.

Ensure That Your Fridge Is Properly Sealed

A refrigerator with malfunctioning seals can run excessively and build up too much condensation, which might lead to leakage. Luckily, our knowledgeable technicians from A-Tech are well-versed in diagnosing and replacing damaged seals and faulty gaskets.

Inspect Your Drain Pan

The drain pan is designed to collect excess water and prevent it from pooling inside your fridge. When the pan is broken, water might leak and find its way to your floor. You, therefore, need to contact us and have the pan replaced.

Examine the Defrost Drain

When the defrost drain is clogged, your fridge will begin leaking from inside. The common culprits of a clogged defrost drain include debris and excessive freezing. You need to have the defrost drain inspected and unclogged by our skilled technicians.

Check Your Ice Maker

The connection in your ice maker can wear with age and cause water leakage in your refrigerator. This is why it should be examined to ensure that it is in good shape. If the ice maker is excessively worn out, you can trust our seasoned professionals to replace it efficiently.

Refrigerators should regularly be inspected to prevent them from leaking. A leaky refrigerator can cause slipping hazards or even water and mold damage in your kitchen. As such, prompt steps should be taken to prevent leakage and avoid injury and the destruction of your property.
