I just had a 48 Monogram refrigerator delivered last week

Customer Question

I just had a 48" Monogram refrigerator delivered last week after the previous one had water (condensation) dripping from the bottom and sides of the freezer unit. This is now happening again after 6 days with the new unit. It is ruining my harwood floors. What would cause a refrigerator to drip so much that it pools under the unit?

This is very unusual. Are both units exactly the same? If they are then this may be a manufacturers defect that the company is not yet aware of.

If the unit does not have sufficient insulation around the freezer unit then the warmer air outside of the unit will condense the moisture it contains on the cooler surface of the freezer. The moisture then drips down onto your floor.

I suggest that you call the people you did last time and advise them that this is occuring again. As I said before it may be a manufacturers defect that they just are not aware of yet.
