LEAKING FROM BACK/BOTTOM/FRONT

Leaks from the refrigerator are often caused by damaged or improperly installed water lines.

Inspect the home water valve at the back of the unit. It is possible that the connection may be loose. Tighten the connection. If the line will not secure to the home water valve connection, the line may have to be replaced. This water line is not supplied with your refrigerator. LG recommends that the water supply line to the refrigerator is new upon installation.

Check the water valve connection also on the back of the refrigerator. Tighten this connection, making sure that it is threaded properly or leaking will continue. If the line will not secure to the refrigerator water valve connection, the line may have to be replaced. This water line is not supplied with your refrigerator. LG recommends that the water supply line to the refrigerator is new upon installation.

If a water line is split or cracked, this water line will have to be replaced. If it is a water line that is part of the refrigerator, service will be required.

Also, check behind the kick plate at the bottom of the unit and the line at the door hinges. Check that all lines are inserted completed, and that the black c-ring is inserted at the end of the connectors.

It has also been known to happen, whenever refrigerator or freezer door accidentally left ajar overnight, for ice to form underneath and, the doors get finally closed for the frozen patch to begin thawing and leak over the floor. Run your hand underneath whether you can feel some ice and, if not, clean the puddle and monitor for the next 24 hours. If the leak persist and all above troubleshooting failed at producing positive results, a service technician may need to have a look.
