How to Stop Water Collecting in Your Fridge

At some point we’ve all heard that one famous question ‘why is there water collecting in my fridge?’. Well let us help you out and explain how easily you can stop water from collecting in your fridge.

If you find that water is gathering in the bottom of your fridge or your salad drawers, it probably because the condensation drain hole is blocked.

Condensation runs down the back of the fridge and collects in the gully sitting at the back of the fridge where the water is then channelled through the drain hole into a container which sits on the compressor, it's then evaporated away.
