Kitchen sink leak

I have discovered a small amount of water in the cabinet under the kitchen sink of my Melbourne 29D. Because there is no cycling of the water pump, I am certain that the link is in a drain connection somewhere. Any tips or advise on how I can trace the problem.

My best guess would be to run water down your sink drain and look and/or feel for drips or moisture.

Welcome to the forum.

If your unit has a 'pull out faucet', be sure the connection between the flexible hose and the faucet end is tight. Ours was a bit loose and water would flow down the hose and into the cabinet below. It seemed like a drain leak, but it wasn't really.

With things very dry, we positioned dry paper towels under the sink to pinpoint the water source.

Make sure all the fittings are hand tight and dry. Put a layer of white paper towels under the sink and fill it up then let it drain. Look closely with a flashlight or for drips on the paper.
