How To Fix A Sweaty Fridge Door

Certainly, in this twenty-first century, one of the most valuable and complicated household appliances is the refrigerator. It is almost next to impossible to live without it. However, the appliance is associated with different difficulties. In case the doors of your fridge are sweating, you shouldn’t worry. There are many approaches to fridge repairs depending on the exact issue affecting the appliance.

Our website provides a simple, but detailed list of the parts that most frequently cause doors of a fridge to produce wetness. You can use your fridge’s model number to perform a quick search on our website to pinpoint the exact issue with your fridge. Doing so will yield a double benefit to you because it will reveal more about the particular problem and ways of rectifying the shortcoming.

Freezer Door Gasket

There is an easy way of finding out whether the door gasket is fit or not. A damaged gasket does not seal properly, and that’s why your fridge will always malfunction unless the issue is corrected. Take a piece of paper, position it on different points along the fridge’s access. Then, shut the door normally and pull out the paper. In case, the paper comes out without any struggle, without doubt that gasket is defective.

Consequently, this improper gasket will not appropriately seal the fridge opening, therefore allowing surplus moisture to enter. The wetness will even be visible on shelves inside the freezer, and for your information, this causes defrost issues. The best way to deal with such a situation is to replace the gasket with a new one.

Flapper Or Dispenser Door And The Door Kit

Once activated, the ice dispenser fridge door opens, and this allows ice to be dispensed from the fridge’s icemaker. The flapper or the door is usually loaded with springs and features a rubber or vinyl seal attached to ensure that it doesn’t let room air into the fridge.

Keep in mind that the presence of moisture in the front side of the dispenser or the ice bin section means that your fridge’s door isn’t closing properly. The flapper door is usually hinged and uses a solenoid that has a return spring. It also has a damper that slows the shutting action to ensure that the door doesn’t close on ice cubes.

During fridge repairs you can remove the dispenser cover and inspect the operation of these parts. Be sure to inspect the door hinges, its seal, and the door’s pivot mechanism. Besides, you should also inspect the return spring, the linkage and solenoid plunger. A perfect door should close without binding. In case any of these parts malfunction, consider replacing them.

Door Closure Cam

If one of the cams installed in your fridge is broken, then you will need repair services. Otherwise, the door won’t close tightly and that means the door will let air in. Therefore, once you notice that your fridge door isnt closing properly, consider checking if the any of the cams is broken or cracked.

Door Bearing And Hinges

Both the freezer and fresh food doors rotate on hinges. If these hinges are dry of lubricant or become worn out, they may cause the door not to shut down as it should. This will definitely allow in warm air. Thus, it’s important to replace the hinges.

What Our Customers Say About Us

Discover how Fix Appliances maintains a 5-star service record since day one.

Our 7 year old Whirlpool fridge would not defrost anymore and was icing up on a regular basis. I had a pleasant conversation with the agent that answered my call for service and was provided an appointment time the next day between 11 and 1. Oleg arrived at 10:30(early is much better then late!). He was very polite and knowledgeable and explained to me in detail what he suspected the issue to be, how he would test the items first to confirm what needed replacing(defrost timer,defrost heater assembly) and clearly advised me of what the cost would be. He had the parts needed with him and with my go ahead was able to repair our fridge within the hour explaining to me what he was doing and showing me what he was doing all along which I appreciated.. As it turned out it needed a new control board which was the most expensive part, but his price was more then reasonable and lower then what we were expecting! Our fridge is now working A1 again for which we are thankful. I would not hesitate in recommending this company to friends or family and would also reach out to them if we ever have any issues in the future. Thank you Oleg...you were great!

Common Questions About Refrigerators

Will a refrigerator work in my garage?

Yes, but it’s risky during cold seasons when the temperature drops below 10 degrees Celsius (50 degrees Fahrenheit.) Frigid temperatures can cause the compressor oil to thicken and stop working.

Why does my refrigerator run so often?

This can be caused from dirty condenser coils, inadequate air flow from the appliance being too close to the wall, or the door is not sealing properly.

What’s the proper method to dispose of my old refrigerator?

Environmental and safety laws make it illegal to dispose of a refrigerator that still has refrigerant in it. Contact a licensed professional or appliance repair service to properly dispose of the unit.

What’s the typical lifespan of a refrigerator?

With proper maintenance, a refrigerator can be expected to last 14 to 17 years.

Refrigerator Maintenance Tips

Tip #1 – Clean condenser coils

Large, radiator-type coils are located at the back or bottom of your refrigerator. They remove heat from the appliance but are less efficient when dust and dirt accumulate on them. Vacuum them off twice a year.

Tip #2 – Clean and replace door seals

Wipe down the gaskets around the refrigerator and freezer doors to keep them sealing tightly. Replace loose or torn door seals to save energy and keep your food cold.

Tip #3 – Wipe down the interior and exterior

Use an all-purpose cleaner to remove crumbs and spills on inside shelves and walls. Special cleaning wipes are available to safely remove fingerprints from exterior stainless-steel doors and handles.

Tip #4 – Use a deodorizer to remove odors

To keep your refrigerator smelling fresh, place a specially designed refrigerator deodorizer inside the unit. It will eliminate food odors for up to six months.

Tip #5 – Change the filters

To keep ice cubes and water tasting fresh, replace the ice maker and water dispenser filters every six months.
