Badly condensating fridge - How do I stop it

I have a Westinghouse upright fridge/freezer (approx 200L). I've just switched it on after a year in storage. The freezer seems to be working fine, but there is water dripping from all over the inside of the fridge shelves and compartments - it's condensating very badly. Can someone suggest what might be causing this. By the way, I was given the fridge and put it straight into storage so I do not know what temperature it was set on before storage, or whether it had condensation problems before I got it.

Sounds as if you have a door not closing possibly. check your door seals, if refrig door doesnt seal all around your going to be getting warm air leaking in and will condense on the colder shelves and upper wall for sure

My Westinghouse model numberMRVC25V9DS9 fridge and freezer compartments are not cooling but all control lights are on and the interior lights are working. Does anyone know the answer please?

First assuming the compressor is operating clean the condenser and be sure the condenser fan is operating, if so and the condenser is not getting hot you need a service tech to find and repair the leak and recharge the unit.

Red alarm light is on on Westinghouse upright freezer

Most probably during transportation either the coolant(previously freon gas) may have leaked out so the pressure on the cooling pipeline causing the red alarm because the compressor will overheat if the fridge is kept running at very cold thermostat readings and no effect of cooling the fridge will ultimately result in the compressor getting burnt. However fist have look at thermostat setting knob which could have loosened during transportation and just pushed into the spindle without knowing the correct angle, thus even though it looks as if on high cool but could also be the lowest setting..........sodeep

Westinghouse fridge: no cool air circulating inside

Art, I need to get a little more information from you. Does the condenser fan under the refrigerator seem to work and blowing warm air from below and or behind the refrigerator? The motor feeling warm is OK. Only when too hot to touch on top. Needs to cycle also. When you opened the freezer did you hear the fan blowing? Thanks, JT

Kenmore upright fridge--freezer door drips when cleaning

Condensation has formed and frozen behing the door panel. You can live with it, or take apart the panel and dry it out - you may have to replace some insulation. Hope this helps!
