I have condensation in my refrigerator.


Answer by  lucrasious (135)

Condensation is from the cold air meeting up with warm air. It could be the door seal or the insulation inside of the refrigerator itself.

Generally condensation in the lower part of a refrigerator indicates that your door seal is leaking. You can test the seal by closing the door on a strip of paper. Pull it slowly around the door. You should feel a slight drag. If it slides easily the seal needs adjusted or replaced.

It sounds like you need a new door seal. As a refrigerator gets older the seal can move and compress. This will eventually lead to gaps around the door opening. This in turn lets warm outside air leak into the the refrigerator. This warm air will then condensation on the inside walls and run down. Replace the door seal.

Condensation in a refrigerator is caused be the cool and warm air flow. When the dorr is opened warm air is pulled inside the unit and the cool air meeting it causes condensation to form on the walls of the unit.


Answer by  Tetete (43)

Most condensation in refrigerators are caused by temperature. By maintaining constant temperature, that is the refrigerator being continuously used and never turned off for cleaning or cooling down, refrigerators tend to build up on condensation. The easiest way to prevent this is regular cleaning, bi-monthly or quarterly.

Often this problem occurs in the summer when the temperature in the house is much higher than in the refrigerator. When you leave the door open for more than a few seconds condensation appears. You also might need to adjust the temperature control to keep items cooler.
