While there are many reasons you could have condensation on a sub-zero refrigerator door in your Washington DC kitchen, and the easiest way to diagnosis the problem is to call All Time Services for a repair. We’ll get to the root of the problem and resolve it fast. Here are some possible reasons you could be having this problem.
Condensation on a refrigerator door usually means that the temperatures are not cold enough. You could have a faulty thermostat. Your defrost cycles may be off or not working properly. Call a repair technician if notice that the temperature inside the fridge is not cold enough.
Faulty Door Gaskets
A faulty door gasket could also be the issue with your temperature control. Faulty or dried out gaskets can allow cold air to escape, and the compressor cannot maintain a constant temperatures. This can also lead to your compressor burning out and increase energy bills. Routinely clean your gaskets and check them for damages. Should you notice peeling, cracking, or dried out gaskets, they should be replaced.
Dirty Condenser or Compressor Coils
When the compressor coils get caked with dust and dirt, the compressor has to work harder. This can cause the compressor to burn out and not properly work. Condensation may be one result, but the compressor may need to be replaced.
Clogged Condensate Drain
All commercial refrigerators have a condensate drain to drain off any condensation is a drain. The drip pan holds the water that is then heated and evaporated. When there’s a clog in the drain, condensation can build up, which can cause frozen build-up in sub-zero refrigerators and freezers. Make sure there’s nothing in the pan that could clog the drain.
