Interior Moisture Buildup

 

Possible Solutions

Is the environment more humid than normal?Edit section

It is normal for some moisture to build up inside of your refrigerator when the air is humid. Use a soft cloth or towel to remove.

Is the door opened often?Edit section

To avoid humidity buildup, try to get everything you need out of the refrigerator at once. When the door is opened, humidity from the room air enters the refrigerator. The more often the door is opened, the faster humidity builds up, especially when the room itself is very humid.

  • Keep wine bottles and beverages positioned label side up so that they are easy to find
  • Close the door as soon as the items are removed. 

Are the controls set correctly for the surrounding conditions?

The preset settings should be correct for normal household usage.  Keeping the temperature too low or too warm could increase the amount of moisture build up, especially when the area is warmer or more humid than normal. 

  • Wait 24 hours after you turn on the refrigerator before you put food or beverages into the refrigerator. If you add food before the drawers have cooled completely, your food may spoil. 
  • Adjusting the controls to a lower (colder) setting  will not cool them any faster.
