Why am I getting frost build up in my freezer?

If the door is not tightly closed or cool air leaks during the warmer summer period when humidity

level is high, frost will form. Frost usually forms when warmer air (outside) and the cold air (inside)

come in contact with each other from when you open and close the door.

You will find that this phenomenon will eventually disappear when the weather gets cooler.


To help prevent further build up, try re-arranging your food and shelf assembly which may be preventing

the door to be securely closed.

You can clear away the frost using a dry cloth.
