All refrigerators will make condensation it is were evaporator meets air takes moisture out drips down into a pan located on or near compressor it maybe as simple as a plastic hose out of collector pan that will have on some refrigerators a fan .
heat from compressor and fan will evaporate the water.
your problem also can be bad door gaskets letting humid air into it
Check door gaskets make sure it seals check drain pan may have a rust hole or its plastic and may have a crack in it
send us a model # we can tell you were to look

POOL OF LIQUID FROM VESTFROST WINE COOLER ON FLOOR


it's not the refrigerant - that is a gas. It may be water from inside, or oil from a leaking pipe. If it's oil it's not a diy job

Marvel wine cooler leaks water


All coolers produce water as a result of condensation which occurs when air is cooled. The water appears upon the radiator (technically called the evaporator) inside the cold area of the cooler. When the water drips off of the radiator, it is caught by a pan which may or may not be a removable piece. The pan should lean toward the rear of the cooler and the water should pour into a drain tube. The drain tube should lead down into the compressor area of the cooler and deposit the water into another pain which is outside of the cooler where it should evaporate back into the air. Sometimes "cardboard" fins are used to help the water evaporate. Sometimes a pan with a huge surface area is used to help the water evaporate. Other times the pan is literally on top of the compressor. Make sure the cooler itself is level. Make sure room air is able to move over the pan where the water is supposed to evaporate. Make sure the drain hose is not clogged. Make sure pans are not leaking.

Our kenmore wine cooler started leaking water all over the floor.


I don't know how it is leaking water, it isn't hooked up to a water supply. better start looking for the actual source of the water

It leaks water from underneath


It is not really leaking water (did you put water inside?) ... that is probably condensate ... a by product of the cooling process. Are you in a high humidity area? If yes ... that is the primary reason for this water.

Here in North America, we think that only white wine should be chilled and then only to 'celler' temp (or about 55 degrees F.

You may be able to reduce the water problem if

(1) up the temp in the cooler (it isn't a refrigerator - don't use it as one)
(2) don't put 'hot' wine inside
(3) put a small fan blowing on the cooler to help evaporate the condensate.

If the water is a big problem, sit your frig on a big tray, similar to the one you might put under your car in the garge to catch dripping oil.

I hope you find these suggestions helpful.

Thanks for visiting and please come again.

My Hair 12 bottle wine cooler quit cooling. what is the main cause?


Possible bad thermostat. Bypass the thermostat wire to run the compressor. If the compressor start, replace the thermostat. On the other hand if the compressor is running, and there is no cooling; there is a leak and all the refrigerant probably escaped. If it is the case, you need to call serviceman and have him evaluate the wine cooler for possible repairs. P.S. The serviceman may charge a fee for evaluating or estimating the cost of repairs.

Why is there water in the bottom of my wine cooler


cos you have condensation inside due to the fact that it is not frost free OR you have a seal leak.....OR the door is constantly open and closed (my beer fridge is like that.....)

Water seeping out the bottom of my wine cooler


there should be a drain pan that you will periodically remove. Condensate (water) is a normal byproduct of all refrigeration devices. Also look for a drain fitting that you can run to a waste line.
