Leaky fridge in the breakroom
This disaster was caused by a refrigerator leak in the break room. One of the most common culprits for leaks in the kitchen area are fridges. There are many things that can attribute to a fridge leak.
Water filters can be installed incorrectly or there could be a poor connection. The drain pan can have cracks in it which could cause major leakage. And finally, the defrost drain. The defrost drain is one of the most common causes of a leaking fridge. When the defrost drain is blocked by food particles or ice, it prevents the water accumulated during the defrost cycle to properly drain into the pan. Eventually, water will start to build up. Without anywhere to drain, water will begin to flow right onto your floor.
