I have a year old Danby Silhouette (model# DBC514BLS-1) that leaks water on the floor. Can you tell me how to diagnose? Thanks.

Hi,

Any water inside?
If no, pull out the unit and check the drain spout and pan at the back.

Hi,
I am having this problem as well. First leak ever. There is only a trace amount of water in the drain spout and pan...we recently had a party and out a bunch of warm beverages in there...over filled...did we just work it too hard?? Also unit is 14 months old and lots of hair and fuzz on fan unit just cleaned off.

Inside? Outside on the floor? Front? Back?

That is possible...or extremely humid weather may also effect it.

The water was all outside on the floor, in back of the unit by drain spout and pan. We think the spout was angled oddly and didn’t hit the drip pan. Repositioned and watching for now.

Good plan! Keep us posted.

Being heavily used could have made the unit give more than normal defrost water.
