With its powerful food preservation function, the refrigerator has gradually become one of the necessary electrical appliances in every household and has entered people's daily life. However, the refrigerator at home has been used for a long time, and it is very prone to various failures. Sometimes, when we accidentally touch the outer wall of the refrigerator, our hands will feel numb due to electric shock. This is the electric leakage of the refrigerator. If leakage occurs more frequently, safety accidents will occur over time. So what are the reasons for refrigerator leakage? What should I do if refrigerator leakage?
Why does the refrigerator leak?
Reason 1: The compressor of the refrigerator is leaking electricity
Compressor leakage is one of the common causes of frequent leakage of refrigerators. This situation often occurs in those old refrigerators that have been used for four or five years. Once the refrigerator has been used for a long time, the motor winding cable sheath inside the refrigerator will age and eventually fall down, resulting in leakage.
Reason 2: Leakage of temperature controller
The temperature controllers of most refrigerators are installed on the inner walls of both sides of the refrigerator. When people adjust the temperature, condensed water will be generated around the temperature controller. Once the condensed water enters the temperature controller, the temperature controller is connected to the electrical contact point, which will cause the temperature controller to induce electricity.
Reason 3: the connector is loose
Once the connector of the refrigerator is loosened, the grounding device will be unstable, which will cause the refrigerator to leak electricity.
What to do if the refrigerator leaks
1. First, check whether the home power supply is properly connected. At this time, you can turn on the rest of the electrical appliances in the home to see if they are in normal operation. If the rest of the electrical appliances can operate normally, there is probably a leakage in the refrigerator. If not, it means that there is a leakage in the circuit at home. At this time, you must find a professional electrician to check in time to prevent safety accidents.
2. Once the drainage pipe behind the refrigerator is blocked, the condensed water will leak, which will wet the refrigerator switch and cause electric leakage. At this time, it is necessary to observe whether there is water in the refrigerator freezer, and whether the area around the power switch is wet or cold.
3. Once you find that the refrigerator at home is leaking, you must unplug the power cord as soon as possible. If the leakage of the refrigerator is not very serious, it is necessary to wipe the stagnant water clean and keep it dry. If you find that the leakage is serious, you should find maintenance personnel to solve it.
