Moisture in the refrigerator compartment?

 

Why is there dew or sweat in the refrigerator compartment?

Some moisture in the refrigerator compartment and crispers is normal. Light sweat or humidity may build on interior walls, shelves, bottles, jars and other containers in the refrigerator compartment.

 

Moisture in Main Refrigerator Compartment

 

Excess moisture can be a result of the following:

Opening the doors frequently

Opening the doors frequently can cause sweat or dew to build in the refrigerator compartment. When the doors are opened, humid room air enters the refrigerator. The more often the doors are opened, the faster the humidity builds. Opening the doors less often will help, but may not completely eliminate internal moisture.

Humid environment

During months of high humidity (especially if a home is not air-conditioned), it is normal for some sweat or moisture to build inside the refrigerator when the room air is humid.

Blocked air vents

Make sure the air vents between the freezer and refrigerator compartments are not blocked. See images below. Objects blocking the vents will cause a decrease in proper air circulation, which can cause temperature and moisture problems. Move any items that could be blocking the vents.

Poor gasket seal

Moisture buildup around the door or on the ceiling suggests an air leak, likely due to a gasket problem. The door gasket should seal all the way around on the door. Make sure that nothing is keeping the gasket from making a good seal.

Moisture in Crisper Bins

Crispers are designed to hold moisture in order to keep vegetables fresh.

•             Washing foods before putting them in the crisper can cause excess moisture to form inside the crisper. To control moisture buildup, allow produce to dry on a towel after it is washed, before it is placed in the crisper. Excess moisture could cause produce to prematurely spoil.

•             On models with a moisture control on the front of the crisper, adjust the setting to low humidity or the fruit setting.  Refer to your Use and Care Guide for additional instructions and information about this feature.
