If the refrigerator is a not frost free model, this is normal. If the refrigerator is a frost free (self-defrosting) model, frost can form on the back wall of the fresh food or freezer compartment for the following reasons:

  • Doors have been opened and closed frequently.
  • Doors have been left open for a long period.
  • There is a lot of wet food (ex. salad) or unwrapped food in the compartment.
  • High humidity from foods, especially warm foods.
  • Food is blocking the air circulation in the refrigerator. Ex: Packages resting against the rear wall.
  • Packages keeping the door open.
  • If the doors were reversed recently, often times the gaskets can be slightly misaligned. Inspect the gasket perimeter for signs of air infiltration.
  • The door gaskets not sealing properly or are torn or split.
