A large amount of food has just been added
to the refrigerator or freezer.
The food is not packaged correctly.

Locate air vents by using your hand to sense airflow and
move all packages that block vents and restrict airflow. Refer
To ENSURING PROPER AiR CiRCULATiON
for the location of air vents.
When the door is opened, warm humid air is allowed into
the refrigerator. The more the door is opened, the faster the
humidity builds up, and the more warm air the refrigerator
must cool. In order to keep the refrigerator cool, try to get
everything you need out of the refrigerator at once; also,
keep food organized so it is easy to find and close the door
as soon as the food is removed.
Refer to the SETTING THE CONTROLS section.
Wait 24 hours for temperatures to stabilize or even out. If the
temperature is too cold or too warm, move the dial one
number at a time.
Adding food warms the refrigerator. It can take a few hours
for the refrigerator to return to normal temperature.
Wrap food tightly and wipe off damp containers prior to
storing in the refrigerator to avoid moisture accumulation.
If
necessary, repackage food according to the guidelines in the
FOOD STORAGE GUIDE section.
See "Doors will not close completely".

when doors are opened.
It is normal for droplets to form on the back wall after the
