Fridge Blowing Out Moist Air At The Back

Came down this morning and noticed the cupboard under the sink which is next to the built in fridge has moist air blowing out the cupboard, which I assume is coming from the back of the fridge. 


Is this normal for a fridge to commit so much misty air?  At first I wondered what the hell was going on, the cupboard was commiting like a fine spray.


Any ideas?

Empty the fridge and make sure the vents aren't blocked

Water supply? Tiny hole in rising main causing fine spray?

I can't see it coming from a mains pipe, but recently the fridge has been frosting up badly even turned down to 2.



Your vents/drain holes are blocked.  Mine are over the motor, towards the back of the fridge.  A lettuce leaf had lodged over it.  I now use a cable tie every time I clean the fridge to make sure the vents and drain holes are clear.

Turns out it was a tiny pin prick size hole in one of the water pipes causing a spray

Thanks for letting us know.

Doesn't explain the fridge frosting up though 

So, I was right after all....!


^ it was a rhetorical question, obs.

No that was puzzling, the fridge is over 20 years old so it's probably packed up like the pipe. Just a coincidence. 

Have you checked the drain holes inside the fridge?
