Viking Refrigerator Is Leaking

Viking Refrigerator Repair Denver CO

Is your Viking refrigerator leaking?

Here is how to fix it.

A refrigerator is one of those household appliances, which is running non-stop. Unfortunately, over time some problems may occur. If you found some moisture on your kitchen floor, your refrigerator may leak and cause significant water damage. In fact, you can try to solve this problem by yourself using the following tips.

If you are not sure you are able to handle the repair properly, Denver Appliance Repair can help you! Call us to schedule a service appointment!

Follow these simple tips to get your Viking refrigerator working properly:

defrost drain opening behind the refrigerator

Check the defrost drain opening

The drain opening can be blocked by food particles or ice. It may cause water leaking out of the refrigerator and onto the floor. To resolve this issue, clear the drain opening by flushing it with hot water or use a short piece of stiff wire to remove the blockage.

Viking refrigerator drain pan

Check the drain pan

Liquid from the defrost drain empties into the defrost pan, which is located at the bottom of your Viking refrigerator. It is normal for a small amount of water to accumulate in the drain pan and evaporate over time. When the drain pan is cracked, the water will leak onto the floor. In this case, replace it with the new one as soon as possible.

refrigerator's door seal is checked

Check the door seal

Worn or cracked door seal allows moist air to enter inside your Viking refrigerator. Then, it can accumulate and flow down the interior surfaces to the bottom of your refrigerator causing a water leak through the door. If the door seal is defective, it should be replaced.

water filter installation for Viking refrigerator

Check the water filter

If your Viking refrigerator is equipped with a water filter, it may become damaged over time, causing water accumulation in places where it shouldn’t and resulting water leak. A leak can also be caused by the water filter being misaligned in its housing. Try removing and reinstalling the filter to fix the problem.

If you have performed all inspections above, but could not find the source of the leak, service may be required. Contact Denver Appliance Pros team and schedule a service appointment.

Things that might be causing the issue:

water inlet filter for Viking refrigerator

Damaged water inlet valve

The water inlet valve opens the water supply to the water dispenser and ice-maker of your Viking refrigerator.  When the inlet valve is damaged, it may cause a leak and should be replaced with the new one.

refrigerator's water tank assembly

Faulty water tank assembly

Water tank assembly may be a source of a leak. It is usually located on the rear side of the refrigerator. If the water tank assembly is not able to hold water, it should be replaced.

water filter housing cap for Viking refrigerator

Broken water filter housing

If the water filter housing is cracked or broken, it may cause a water leak. Leakages may also occur as a result of a crack in the filter head or a tear in the seal. In case you find any cracks, the housing should be replaced.

Viking ice maker

Faulty ice-maker

If your Viking refrigerator is leaking water around the ice-maker, water-line connections to the icemaker can come loose or the seals can be cracked.
