• Is there a water filter installed on the appliance
(on some models)? This filter may be clogged or
installed incorrectly. First, check the filter
installation instructions to ensure that the filter

If there is water in the defrost pan:
This is normal in hot, damp weather. The pan can
even be half full. Make sure the appliance is level
so that the water does not overflow

come in contact with the door seal, are warm
to the touch:
• This is normal in hot weather and when the
compressor is running.
If the light does not work:
• Have you checked the protection devices and
fuses of the electrical system in your home?
• Is the power cable plugged into a live socket with
the proper voltage?
• Has the light bulb burnt out?
In the case of burnt-out bulbs:

• Is the condenser free of dust and fluff?
• Are the doors properly closed?

temperature controls.

compartment are not blocked, as this prevents
the circulation of air.
• Make sure that the food is properly packaged.
Dry any dampness on food containers before
placing them in the appliance.
• Check that the doors are not opened too often.
When the door is opened, humidity from the
room air enters the appliance. The more often
the door is opened, the faster humidity builds up,
especially when the room itself is very humid.
• If the room is very humid, it is normal for
moisture to build up inside the refrigerator.
If the doors do not open and close properly:
• Check that food packages are not blocking the
• Check that the internal parts or automatic ice
maker are not out of position.
• Check that the door seals are not dirty or sticky.
