There could be several reasons why your LG refrigerator is leaking water from the bottom. Here are a few possible causes:
1. Clogged or frozen defrost drain: Over time, the defrost drain in your refrigerator can become clogged with debris or frozen, causing water to accumulate and leak out. To fix this, you can try clearing the drain with a mixture of warm water and mild soap or using a pipe cleaner to remove any blockages.
2. Faulty water inlet valve: If the water inlet valve is not functioning properly, it may be allowing too much water to enter the refrigerator, leading to leaks. In this case, you may need to replace the water inlet valve to resolve the issue.
3. Damaged or misaligned water line: A damaged or misaligned water line can also cause water to leak from the bottom of your refrigerator. Inspect the water line for any cracks or leaks, and if necessary, replace the damaged section or realign it properly.
4. Excessive condensation: If the humidity levels in your home are high, it can cause excessive condensation inside the refrigerator, leading to water leaks. To reduce condensation, make sure the refrigerator door is properly sealed and consider using a dehumidifier in the surrounding area.
If you have tried these troubleshooting steps and the issue persists, it is recommended to contact LG customer support or a professional appliance repair service for further assistance.
