This is not only dangerous for your refrigerator but also for you! Moving around in the kitchen can be hazardous due to water puddles leaking from the refrigerator. Not to mention the daily cleaning tasks that arise from this issue. A leaking refrigerator can result in various things, including:
- The door not closing properly – check for any wear and tear on the door gaskets.
- Loose, misplaced, or damaged hoses leading to the drip pan.
- A broken drip tray.
- The freezer being too cold.
While you can inspect these problems on your own, we recommend calling a certified refrigerator service technician to delve into the depth of the issue. You wouldn’t want to take the wrong action due to the inability to diagnose the problem accurately. Furthermore, the resulting major problems may force you to purchase a new refrigerator.
