    Default Strange thing happened in my apartment....

    I am pretty puzzeled by this: a few days ago there was this brown pool of sticky liquid underneath the door of my fridge. When I tasted it, it tasted like sweet soysauce, BUT there is no sweet soysauce in the fridge! My bottle of sweet soysauce (indonesian type) is opposite the fridge......and it is not leaking. So, I cleaned the floor......

    Then yesterday it appeared again! A smaller pool though, and mind you I am alone in the house, no one else could have spoiled that there.......unless.....

    How can this happen?

    huh? liquid from underneath the fridge and you dare to TASTE IT?

    anyway, is the fridge very old? old type of fridge usually got this tray that collect moisture condensed by the fridge...similar to aircon

    the brown and stick stuff can be due to all sort of dirts

    It didn't look like it, was sticky, and certainly didn't taste like rust...I know how that taste, with the rusty water coming out from my bathroom tap....

    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    you're not the only one. my fridge too. large quantities of it appeared in my crisper compartment. didn't taste it but it smelled sickly sweet and had the texture of congealed coke syrup or soya sause. after a few times cleaning it, no more. dunno why also.

    sounds like the refrigerant liquid leaked and mixed with dirt and all ... check the pipes below or behind the fridge ... and you actually tasted it

    that's funny.... my fridge also got the brown liquid...
    but it's inside the fridge, just underneath the door... can't seem to find the source...
    Hmmm....

    Strange things have been happening recently...

    Firefox & his unexposed frame...
    Sion & his green grandma...
    U & your brown liquid...

    Bbbbrrrrr.......
