How to Avoid Frost Build Up

Has the Door or Lid been open for a long period of time?

  • Keeping the Door / Lid open for a long period of time will allow excess moisture into the Freezer, potentially creating frost. 
  • Close the Door / Lid as soon as possible after the food is removed.
  • Be aware the freezer will warm when the lid is open for a long period of time. 

Is the Door or Lid opened often?

  • Be aware that this will allow excess moisture into the freezer, potentially creating frost.
  • Try to get everything you need out of the freezer at once, keep food organized so it is easy to find, and close the lid as soon as the food is removed.
  • Be aware the freezer will warm when the lid is opened often.

Was the Door or Lid closed securely after adding or removing food?

  • Verify the Lid is securely closed after adding or removing food.
