Generally, there 3 important red flags for water damage, originating in the refrigerator:
- Moisture behind or under the refrigerator including on the coils in the back of the refrigerator.
- Leaks from hose connection and seals. (commonly found in the icemaker's water supply line)
- Growth of mold is a major sign because it indicates an ongoing problem that must be treated immediately. This problem is usually detected in the drain pan if your refrigerator has one.
