Follow our troubleshooting checklist on what to do when your fridge develops a leak.
Check 1: Door seal
Food and grease build up around the door seal over time, affecting the fridge’s ability to form a good seal and causing condensation, which will leak. Give the seal a good clean with liquid detergent and a soft cloth. If the seal is damaged, it will need to be replaced, which isn’t a major job.

Check 2: Plug hole
Moisture builds in the fridge every time you open and close the door. It gathers at the back and should drain away, but you need to check the plug hole is unblocked and clean. Food debris often falls into the hole.
Check 3: Tubing
Have a look at the tubing at the back of the fridge to make sure it isn’t blocked. If it is, there will be water or an ice build-up which will spill.
Check 4: Evaporation tray
Check for cracks. If you’re not sure where to find your evaporation tray, consult your manual.
