Ice droplets in the freezer compartment – Side by side with Ice Bin in Door


Generally, ice droplets on the freezer walls and back panel are normal. This is generally noticed under the following conditions.

  • Opening the door frequently can cause ice droplets to accumulate in the freezer compartment. When the door is opened, humidity from the room air enters the freezer. The more often the door is opened, the faster the humidity builds. Opening the doors less often will help but may not completely eliminate ice droplets.
    NOTE: Microprocessors in the refrigerator gather information tracking the number of door openings and how long the door has been open to take the guesswork out of temperature management. Even if the door is ajar, the temperature adjusts immediately.
  • Frost or ice is likely to appear if the door was left open for a period of time. Make sure that both doors are closing completely.
    NOTE: The Door Ajar Alarm feature sounds an alarm when the refrigerator or freezer door is open for 5 minutes and the product cooling is turned on. The alarm repeats every 2 minutes. Closing both doors will turn it off.
  • During months of high humidity (especially if a home is not air-conditioned), it is normal for some sweating or moisture to build up inside the freezer when the room air is humid.
    NOTE: Temperature sensors placed close to the front of the refrigerator help ensure that food stays cold, no matter where the food is placed.
  • Make sure that the air vents between the freezer and refrigerator compartments are not blocked. Cold air enters and exits the refrigerator compartment from the freezer compartment through vents near the top shelf and crisper drawer.
    NOTE: There are six evenly distributed vents to create better circulation within the refrigerator and freezer compartments. This reduces the potential of decreased air flow that can cause temperature and moisture problems.

The illustration shows the 6th Sense™ system airflow ensuring it keeps foods cool in the most efficient way possible. The system is always on when your refrigerator is operating, so there is nothing to activate.
