Refrigerator Line Leak 

Signs you may have a Refrigerator Line Leak

Refrigerator line leaks are very common and even small leaks can cause thousands of gallons of water to be wasted.

It is important to perform regular maintenance on your refrigerator line to prevent these leaks from occurring. 

Common indicators of a potential refrigerator line leak:

  • A strange or musty odor coming from your refrigerator. 
  • A low rumble of water running through the pipes when the fridge is turned off. 
  • Water dripping from under the refrigerator.     
  • A pool of standing water on the floor beneath the refrigerator.
  • A steady squealing noise coming from your refrigerator or pipes when it is turned off.

Common Issues that Cause a Refrigerator Line Leak

A regular call we get here at Rescue Plumbing is that the refrigerator is leaking.

Refrigerator water line leaking

Most refrigerators nowadays have ice makers or filtered water dispensers. 

These components of your refrigerator require a water service line that is connected to a shut-off valve. 

Sometimes, refrigerator lines leak if they get kinked. For example, when moving the refrigerator out to clean behind the refrigerator. When you move the refrigerator back into place, the water line could get kinked and cause a buildup of water pressure that could compromise the water service line.

Attack of the mice – plumbing nightmare

A couple of weeks back, a customer had a mouse eat through their refrigerator line and flood a whole basement unit.

The little critters completely severed the refrigerator line and caused thousands of dollars in property damage.

Be sure to always inspect your water lines for damage and take measures to keep rodents at bay.
