Why does my refrigerator have frost or a leak?

Last Update date : Oct 20. 2020

If condensation has formed inside the refrigerator or water has leaked, please try the solutions below. These tips are simple and easy to check at home to solve the problem.

 

Ensure the door is closed completely.

If the door is not closed properly, the refrigerator will heat up and water will begin to form. Make sure the door is closed properly and nothing is blocking the door. You need to make sure that the door molding is fully functional. The rubber door seals should be cleaned on a regular basic at least once every six months.

Tips to inspect the door seal.

  • Disconnect the plug from the electrical socket for about 2 minutes and open the doors.
  • Put the plug back into the socket and close the doors.
  • Place your fingers along the rubber seals. When you feel air being drawn in, this means that the rubber door seals are no longer closing properly.
  • In this case, we recommend changing the door seal.
  • The door seal should be replaced by a repair engineer. Therefore, contact the customer center to change.

Check the Energy Save Mode on the display.

If condensation water drops appear on the doors, turn the Energy Saver Mode off. The heater on the door is not operating when the Energy Saver Mode is on. In addition, the Energy Saver Mode will automatically turn on when power is supplied to the refrigerator.
