Check that the door gasket is not perished or damaged causing the door not to close properly. Also check nothing is hitting or obstructing the door from pushing the door open switch closed. Some fridges have a lever or button sticking up out of the door which pushes the switch off. Check if you have one and see if its broken or missing the switch. Perhaps the door has dropped and not touching the switch? The moisture in the fridge indicates that air is getting into the compartment during cooling cycle. This is common if the door isn't closing properly or the gasket has failed.
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire freezer door pops open when you open your refrigerator door. This can happen with new refrigerators because the seal is new. I understand your question is labeled under model FGHB2866PF. It could be issues with your door not aligned properly and hitting your freezer door to open. I would check the gasket to make sure they are creating the proper seal on your freezer in order to check that you can use a dollar bill. Place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then replace the gasket. If you continue to experience issues with your freezer door I would recommend reaching out to a professional for further assistance. I hope this information helps to some degree. -Matt
I understand that you are having trouble with the door sealing properly on your Frigidaire freezer, model# FFU17C3AW1. I see that you have already checked to make sure there is nothing blocking the door from closing as well as making sure there was nothing between the door gasket and the freezer body. Next, I would check to make sure that the gasket is not damaged or compromised in any way. If it is not damaged, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your freezer and determine what is causing your appliance to properly seal. Hope this is helpful.
Check the door is aligned properly and meets all the way round If not, grasp the door firmly at the top and push it closed while placing the head of a mallett or similar item between the bottom of the door and the body of the fridge. This will straighten the door and the seal will fit again
Check thoroughly for any obstructions, shipping tape, remaining pieces of plastic, in and around the doors, door frame, cabinet frame that the door contacts when closed, and around the upper and lower hinges. Do you hear any noises when opening or closing the door? Do you see the door rubbing on the inside liner as you open or close the door? Were the doors removed and replaced in moving? This last one, if it is the case, check the alignment at the upper hinges, loosen but dont remove the screws, and adjust the door away from center.
If you live in a humid environment its the water vapor in the air that is turning to frost in your freezer. Every time you open the door you are exchanging the cold dry air in your freezer for the humid air on the outside, and when you shut the door closed its this humid air that turns to frost inside the freezer. If its building up frost faster than normal you might have a door gasket that is leaking the cold air outside thus letting the humid air in, which is turning to frost. Check that your door is aligned properly and that the gasket is secure on the freezer door.
