Download a Sample Inspection Report
Obviously, a refrigerator is the appliance used to keep your food chilled so it doesn't spoil. Although usually found in the kitchen, refrigerators are also used in game rooms, guest rooms and even in the garage as a back-up for the main unit.
A home inspector will check the refrigerator and attached freezer (if applicable) to see that they work, that the refrigerator is cold and the seal on the unit is tight. Since most of today's refrigerators have some kind of ice-making device, the inspector will also check to see that the appliance is hooked up properly to the water supply and that there are no leaks in the system that could cause water to seep behind the counters.
