Why does water leak from inside?

symptom  Symptom 

■ Water leakage from inside the refrigerator

cause  Cause

1. One of the common causes would be a food container with the lid slightly open; content 
in the container might have leaked.

2. If you put hot food directly into a refrigerator, the steam from the food will condense into water 
if it meets the cold air from the refrigerator.

3. Water can also leak when the door is not completely closed in summer.

how to fix  How to fix

             1. Store food with high level of moisture in sealed containers and cool down hot food
                 before placing it in the refrigerator.

             2. When too much food is stored in the refrigerator or shelves are relocated, warm air can enter 
leading to condensation. Please make sure that the door is firmly closed.

             3. Wipe off condensation or frost with a washcloth soaked in warm water.
