Liquid accumulation in the bottom of the refrigerator (under the drawers) can be a “symptom” of certain malfunctions. It is in the user’s interest to identify the causes of regular puddling and prevent its reappearance in a timely manner. Even if this requires ordering refrigerator repair in Poway.

 

Most often the mentioned phenomenon occurs in units with a drip defrosting system. The evaporator is located behind the back wall of the device, at the expense of which frost periodically appears on it, defrosting and flowing down into a special drain hole. If the water ends up on the bottom of the refrigerator, the system has obviously malfunctioned.

 

How to get rid of the accumulation of water under the drawers?

 

Sometimes it is possible to deal with the problem without involving specialists. First of all, it is necessary to check the correctness of the refrigerator installation. If the position is not correct, the door does not fit tightly, due to which warm air enters the unit. Because of this, defrosting rarely occurs. The amount of defrosting water exceeds the allowable amount, and it accumulates outside the tank. Leveling the refrigerator contributes to solving this issue.

 

Also, before ordering refrigerator repair, you should check the possibility of a clogged drain hole or the hose itself. Such a phenomenon becomes a consequence of getting pieces of food in the drain, as a result of which the drain begins to work incompletely, and the full drainage of water becomes technically impossible. Getting rid of such a problem is possible by thoroughly cleaning the drain.

 

To do this, you need to unplug the unit from the power supply, pull out the drawers and clean the drain with a cotton swab. Other objects of the same size can be used, but as long as they do not harm the surface to be treated. Next, you will need to rinse the drain with a syringe with barely warm water and try pouring some water in. If successful, you will not have to do anything else, but if the result is not, then you can not avoid calling the master.
