exterior
moisture
control.
If still concerned,
call for service.
Temperature
is too
warm
Are the
air
vents
blocked
in
either
compartment?
This

in front
of the air vents. See
"Ensuring
Proper Air Circulation"
for the location
of air vents.
Are the door(s)
opened

and close the
door as soon as the food is removed.
Has
a
large amount
of food just
been
added
to the
refrigerator
or
freezer?
Adding
a
large
