Question about GE Refrigerators
If the fridge is working and keeping things cold and frozen, you don't have a refridgerant leak that is producing vapor that might appear as steam or smoke.
The steam/smoke is actually water vapor being made visable due to the temperature difference between the freezer/fridge temperatures and the air temp in the room (or garage) the appliance is in.
It's nothing to worry about and is normally more likely to happen when the outside or house air temp is very warm (Summer months) and when the air is humid.
What's happening is the very cold and cool air is hitting and mixing with the much warmer and much more dense air (humid air contains microscopic water particles) when you open the doors, and is instantly being cooled. Thus it appears as thou the fridge is steaming or smoking.
Have a great day an hope this explains the situation. Best regards.
