Water leaking from a GE refrigerator onto the floorBrand: GE
We encountered an uncommon instance where a customer observed water leaking from a GE refrigerator onto the floor. They turned off the water supply line, thinking it was a problem with a malfunctioning ice maker. However, even with the water turned off, water continued to leak from under the refrigerator.
Water leaking from a GE refrigerator onto the floor: Troubleshooting and Fix
Upon locating the source of the water, the technician found that the drain tube going into the drain pan had been chewed through by rats, and twice a day when defrost cycle works, water was flowing past the drain pan directly onto the floor. The technician fixed this by installing new tubes and recommended that the owner get rid of the rats to prevent this from happening again.
Rats are constantly seeking water sources. When they detect the sound of running water, they frequently chew through drain tubes in appliances like refrigerators. Additionally, they have a penchant for chewing through dishwasher drain hoses. This ceases to be a problem if you hire Pest Control and get rid of the rats. Sometimes our technicians are not just technicians but also detectives, and they have to solve such non-standard cases, but we always handle any problems. So, you can invite us to repair your appliances!
