Hi, This is usually caused from a bad door seal. Checkand make sure the door is sealing tight on all sides. Also make sure the little switch near the controls is set for humid days.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Why is my beverage air cooler door glass frosted I can't see the display through it.


Excessive moisture is inside unit and has condensed on the warmer glass surface. Wipe it off and keep door openings as short as possible especially during hot , humid weather.
Try putting some rain X on the glass - water will bead and run down glass instead of collecting.

Small water leak on floor on both sides of door. w ater is not coming from refrigerator or bottom freezer unit


Did you notice any moisture on the main cabinet at the area the doors seal against? Some models have a heater imbedded in the cabinet edge at the door seal to keep the metal cabinet from sweating much like a glass does when filled with water and ice cubes. If the heater is not on the metal sweats and leaks down to the floor. Some refrigerators have an option switch called and energy saver that can turn that heater on or off. Off is OK for winter but needs to be on in humid weather if house is not air conditioned. Heater could also be burned out (bad).

Ge profile side by side sweating on frig wall next to freezer


Your fridge may have an optional energy saver switch set to on. This turns on & off the heater strips along doors and other key locations.

When set to ON (or the Energy Saving position), energy savings is realized as it powers down the heaters that are designed to evaporate the condensation that can naturally form there - especially in warmer / humid weather conditions.

Slide the switch to OFF to to disable energy savings and have to pay for additional power to operate these heaters. You may find that you need only select this position at certain times of the year. Experiment to see if you can enjoy savings during the other times of the year.

Mullion on ge monogram extremely hot and freezer is working fine and refrigerator appears to be ok. Have vacuumed the upper and lower sections and turned the energy saver switch on. Where to get manual and...


It's not abnormal for the condenser to get hot especially in the hot and humid weather we've been having. Usually atleast some of the condenser coils are welded to the inside of the sides of refrigerators and freezers. Depending on how hard the unit has to work to keep it's inside cold the outside gets hotter.
I hope this helps.

My frigidaire refrigerator is sweating on the inside. what should i do? its a one door model with ice maker and freezer on top. i don't remember the model. 5 years old.


High humidly could cause condensation or the magnetic seal could be bad.
A couple of things to try;
The easiest thing to do first is to clean around the rubber seal very good with mild soap and water and the metal which the magnetic rubber seal contacts to seal the door. If you find a crack or a deformation of the seal it will let condensation it the refrigerator.
Does the freezer auto defrost or is a lot of ice bult up around the freezer walls? If so manually defrosted the freezer.
Dripping from the Ice maker water supply?

Fujitsu AST12LSBCW flashing timer light no cooling


There can be two things that causes it not to cool right in humid weather..........dirty unit or low refrigerant. Clean the inside parts and the outside parts thoroughly and then try again. If it still doesn't cool or gets worse, then you know the unit is low on refrigerant.
