There are different reasons for leaking refrigerators. First of all you should determine what the issue is.

  • One of the most common causes of water leaking from your refrigerator is that the defrost drain is actually clogged.

The small drain opening can be blocked by food particles or ice, preventing water that accumulated during the defrost cycle from draining to the pan.For this case you can clear the drain by flushing it with hot water. If it is necessary to remove the blockage you can use a short piece of stiff wire.


  • Another cause of water leaking from your refrigerator is the ice maker which does not work properly.

Water-line connections to the ice maker can come loose or the seals can age and crack, leading to leaks.The water supply line is the tube which is behind your freezer. It's a fairly strong tube. First of all you need to check the length of the water line leading to the ice maker. If the ice maker supply line is the problem you should tighten the connections or replace the water line. Also check that the pipe isn't pinched or kinked.

  • Water Filter
