    Video Transcript: How to Stop Water Collecting in Your Fridge

    IMPORTANT: ENSURE THAT THE WATER SUPPLY IS SWITCHED OFF BEFORE DISCONNECTING THE FILTER CANISTERS FROM THEIR WATER PIPES.

    If you notice water collecting in the bottom of your fridge or in the salad drawers, it's probably because the condensation drain hole is blocked.

    You'll find the drain hole on the inside back of your fridge. It drains away any moisture that runs down the back of the fridge, but it can easily get blocked with food crumbs and spillages. This stops the water draining away and can cause your fridge to smell.

    The drain hole can easily be cleaned out using this fridge unblocking tool. It's a good idea to use this regularly to prevent any future blockages.

    Try not to leave items pressed up against the back wall of your fridge, as this will cause more condensation to form.

    To prevent seal gaps warm it up with a hair dryer and gently stretch the seal, this will set into its new position when closed and left to cool.
