Question and Answers

Q:

What caused the frost build-up in the freezer and moisture in the refridgerator?

A:

I'm no expert, but frostless refrigerators actually have heaters or heating elements that regulate the ambient temperature in freezers to keep them from frosting. On most fridges the both the cooling and warming is handled by a single thermostat. The humidity may also be regulated by a thermostat, fan, or dryer/evaporator that has gone awry. The repair of these types of items I like to leave to qualified service repair specialists because I would hate to compound the situation with my fumbling. Plus if the problem persists I can always call them out on services not being rendered. However, if you are a hardcore DIY'er these are the areas that I would look into to solve your icy humidity problems.

To remove the frost from the freezer, you can use a hair dryer but be careful not to get anything too hot. There will be excessive frost behind the back panel in the freezer also. To get rid of it I recommend turning the unit off for awhile. You can also wipe the moisture out of the refrigerator with a sponge or towel. If the doors are sealing good and the door is not left open, the moisture and frost will not come back.

Thanks for your responses. I unplugged and moved the fridge away from the wall; there wasn't much dust on the back. I cleaned out the fridge and the freezer completely and eliminated all of the frost. I plugged it back in and filled the fridge, but not the freezer. After running for 24 hours, the freezer had a little frost in it again! I thought it might be a leak in the ice-maker line, because it had been turned off for about a year. I turned it on and let it run another 24 hours. It made ice, but still more frost. After much wiping and searching with a flashlight, alas, I finally found the cause; it was the seal on the freezer door! On a small inside section on the top by the door handle, there were water droplets that spanned about 3 inches. I shut the door and looked from the side and sure enough, the seal was arched a tiny amount away from the freezer surface at that point. By tiny, I mean a millimeter at most. By folding it back into place, the door seals and no more frost!
