Question about Kenmore 5 cu. ft. / 142 liter Chest Freezer 11511
I just bought a new Kenmore 5 cubic foot freezer, manual defrost, from Sears, $179 on sale. Its my first freezer.
It works well, all food frozen, but in the week I have owned it, it builds up condensation on the outside. I suspect it is the external conditions it is exposed to, and am wondering if this is simply something I need to live with.
I keep this in a garage, and we have had horrible humidity all week. The water would condense on the top lid only, and usually only overnight and into the morning. It would then dry off through evaporation.
For two days now it has rained -- obviously it is much more humid now -- and the lid is so full of moisture it drips down the sides onto the seal, and I see condensation on the lower right side bottom third, and on the front all around the drain hole plug.
Is this normal? I remember my mothers huge metal chest freezer from my childhood, also in the garage for years, and it never did this. Of course, that could just be a bvetter model than what I chose to buy. Offering for the size I wanted were slim.
Any help would be great. Thanks.
