When I open the refrigerator, I find condensation in the center (where to doors come together) extending about a foot. It is slow build up. If I wipe it off and leave it alone, it won't reappear for hours.
Ge came in and fixed a problem with the bottom freezer door and he thought it would also fix the refrigerator top problem. While the freezer not properly closing was fixed, the condensation continues.

Re: Condensation inside top near the center
Check your owners manual to see if your model has an "energy saver" switch somewhere. That switch turns on or off the heating around the doors to prevent moisture/condensation, etc. If it does, take it off the energy savings mode and put it in the other mode (energy savings means the heater is off to save a tiny bit of electricity over the years time). Also use a dollar bill and close the door on it to see if you can pull it out with the door closed, it should be a slight pull to remove it if the gasket is sealing right. Do this around the whole door a couple inches at a time and see if you have the same friction on pulling the bill out the sealed door.

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator has frozen condensation in the freezer area. Typically this will happen if the door is left open, left open for too long, or if the door is not sealing properly. I suggest making sure that the door is closed, as well as not leaving it opened for extended periods of time. When the hot humid air hits the freezer it will cause frost. Also, you might want to check the seal around the door, and make sure it is not damaged in any way. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. If further troubleshooting is needed, please leave your model number in the comment section. Hope this is helpful.
check the doors to make sure that they are level and that there are no spaces in between the gasket and the body of the machine. Also check the door seals themselves. Your getting condensation because you have warm air getting in somehow and clashing with the freezer air and causing the water to form inside
Condensation occurs when air is entering the refrigerator. There is moisture in air and the when the air gets in the cool refrigerator temp condenses the moisture in the air into water. So basically you have a gasket that is not sealing or one of the doors is not completely closing, or possibly it could be from constant opening and closing in a large family or kids getting stuff in and out all the time.
humid air in the house. any time you open the fridge, house air is sucked in. when you close it, the fridge cools the air and moisture from the warm air condenses on any cold surface. also check to see if there is a gap in the seal.
condensation in the compartment indicates that the door seal is not sealing properly or the door needs adjustment
it is from moisture in the air coming out of the air as the temperature cools the air down inside the compartment
problems that cause that are -:
opening the door too often
humidity levels high in the room
door seals faulty
door needs adjustment
not enough insulation in the door would only mean that the compressor is running more often or constantly but will have no affect on the condensation problem
