Mrs Black has a stainless steel and a white refrigerator in her kitchen. She said she noticed a water puddle near the front of the refrigerator. She called my repair services to have the appliance repaired.

This post shows four steps to troubleshoot the leak.

Step 1: Fig.1 above right shows the a refrigerator that has a possible leak.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the metal foil placed inside the refrigerator, obtain the model number from the foil. Below is the General Electric foil model number LSHS6LGZBCSS

Step 3: Fig.3 shows the area where the refrigerator lives. The back part has a MDF white molding that had taken on some water and was bloated. There was a sizable leak behind the refrigerator that was cleaned up immediately.

Step 4: Fig.4 and fig.5 shows the refrigerator is leaking. First, check were the leak comes from. Does it come from the wall or the refrigerator. In this case after picking up the water from the floor and the baseboards, the water was dripping from the bottom of the refrigerator. The next posts will show how to remove the refrigerator backing.
