This can be caused by excess room air getting into the freezer because of leaky door gasket which should seal snugly on a dollar bill inserted between the gasket. Frequent or prolonged door opening will also allow room air in. The higher moisture content in the air freezes on the surfaces of the food etc.

If the air doesn't circulate back to the freezer the moisture won't be removed from the air. There is a vent at the top where the fan blows cold air into the fridge side. There is also a vent at the bottom you should see beside the crisper. make sure it's open.

How To Properly Store Vegetables and Food


The first step in proper storage is making sure your refrigerator is at the proper temperature. You will want to make sure your fridge is somewhere between 34 degrees and 40 degrees Fahrenheit. If your fridge goes above 40 degrees, your food will spoil more quickly, but if the temperature is too low, the vegetables in your drawer will freeze.



Often, crisper drawers will have a mechanism to regulate how much moisture flows into and out of the drawer. Depending upon which vegetables you are storing, set the drawer to either let moisture out for drier veggies or keep moisture in for vegetables that need the humidity. Having a fridge with multiple crisper drawers is helpful in storing vegetables based upon their humidity needs.



Vegetables tend to be very sensitive to ethylene, a substance that comes from most fruits and a select number of vegetables. Because of this, storing fruits and vegetables separately is advised. Ethylene exposure is responsible for carrots turning bitter, the yellowing of certain green vegetables and lettuce turning brown. In addition to absorbing ethylene, some vegetables also absorb odors from other veggies. For example, the odor of apples is absorbed by carrots, cabbages and onions. If odor absorption occurs, it can affect the taste of the vegetable. Add a box of baking soda to the crisper drawer to help with odor absorption. After about two weeks, you'll want to shake out the top layer of the baking soda to maximize freshness.



Some vegetables benefit from being stored in a bag in the refrigerator rather than being out of a bag. These vegetables, such as artichokes, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and eggplant, should be placed in the crisper bin in perforated plastic or paper bags so that they can maintain moisture. However, some vegetables like lettuce don't do well with lots of moisture; for this reason, you should not wash your vegetables before storing, but before eating instead. With carrots, beets, radishes and parsnips, removing their tops prior to storage will help them keep longer. Similarly, the head of celery stalks should be covered before storing.

Where is the drain hole for this model


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are looking for the drain hole on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFHT1725PS, due to water building up on the shelves inside your refrigerator. There technically is no drain in your refrigerator. There is a drip pan, which collects water from the condenser underneath your appliance. There are some possibilities that are causing the water to build up on the shelves. First, make sure that all containers are covered. Condensation can evaporate from opened containers and create water on the walls and shelves. Secondly, make sure that the drawers that have your fruits and vegetables are completely closed and set to the correct setting. Fruits and vegetables are full of water. Thirdly, check to make sure that your doors are closing and sealing correctly. Moisture can come through an open door or a door that is not sealed correctly. Lastly, if it is hot and humid, make sure that you are not going in your refrigerator many times and holding the door open as well. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

Water build up


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are getting puddles of water in the back of one of the bottom shelf and in one of the vegetable drawers in your Frigidaire refrigerator. I suggest putting the crisper drawer control on the Hi humidity setting. This should allow more moisture to escape out of the drawer and not cause as much puddling. Also, check your water filter and make sure it is not leaking, as well as any moisture from the ice maker. If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please leave the model number of your washer. Typically, you can find this number inside your refrigerator on the liner walls. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Do I want low or high humidity to keep vegetables crisp. Neither seems to make much difference.


The humidity switch does not control the humidity inside the fridge, but rather is used to control moisture that can form on the edges of the fridge and on the divider between the fridge & freezer compartments.

In areas that experience humid conditions, this is a common occurrence. The relative cold of the freezer & fridge in certain areas of the fridge case causes moist air to condense on contact. This condensation is prevented by a heater that is behind the metal case of the fridge. The moist air can't condense because the metal surface is warmer than the room air.

If you don't have a humid time of year, leave the switch set to "off", as the heater uses electricity and lowers the efficiency of the fridge and freezer - resulting in increased cost of operation. Not using the heater when it is humid will eventually cause the moisture to cause rust on the wet areas of the fridge case.

Please rate this reply - thanks!

If I want low humidity in the (vegetables/fruits) crisper[s]


This is usually just a switch for a mullion heater that prevents condensation from building on the outside of the fridge between the doors. It has nothing to do with humidity inside the refrigerator. If your house is humid as not running an air conditioner, set the switch to high.

There is a puddle of water inside the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable bins.


How many items are in your freezer? I had this problem and there was too much in the freezer, not allowing the air to circulate properly in the freezer, thus resulting in freeze up in the top (freezer) and condensation below in refrigerator section. Additionally, I had the refrigerator setting too cold, which accelerated the problem. I had to thaw the drain hole in the freezer section, below the fan, to allow water to leave freezer during defrosting stage. Hope this helps?

How to stop water from pooling on the middle of shelves. The water seems to come from nowhere. Also, what is the best setting for the humidity sliders on the fruit and vegetable drawers.


If it is a static appliance with a ventilator this can happen at colder settings you can try to increase the setting so the condensation can be decreased.That water is the condesed water which comes from your food.
Actually these has a very small impact if you do not have %100 sealed drawer.If you have fresh vegies it should be totatlly closed so the humidty levels increase in the drawer so the freshness.
