leaking fridge? Answered

Can anyone help my flooding fridge problem. I have a whirlpool and its only 4 years old. There is no build up of ice and the drain hole is not blocked. There is no water in the drip tray and the fridge seals are all good. The fridge is working fine. I have run out of things to look for????

water coming from a fridge is either the water supply to the cold drink section leaking


Condensation - This gathers in the drain tray at the back and is vented out onto the top of the compressor to evaporate - If the pipe is blocked the inside floods, if the pipe is miss-placed the drips may miss the compressor.

Dopy question - are you sure it's your fridge?

Could the flood be running from another appliance, radiator or drain, running under units and coming out under your fridge?
