My fridge has the sweats

I have a new A212HW and have noticed a lot of moisture on the face of the freezer door in our Dometic fridge. I've had similar fridges before and not noticed this before. I thought perhaps there is a fan or something not operating as it should. Enlighten me please. Thanks.

The fridge has no fan. I've never had the problem on my low wall fridge, with no freezer. It sounds like the door isn't insulated enough, is there a way to set the temperature to a slightly warmer setting and see if it helps?

Ours seems to get a lot of condensation on the freezer door which then drips on everything lower in the fridge. I will see if a wipe down after the initial cool down helps. Of course our very high humidity here in south Texas doesn't help anything.

Amen, brother.

There's a condensation heater in the door frame of the fridge. Some units have a switch to turn that heater on or off. Do you have said switch and is it turned off? It's usually located somewhere in the frame between the freezer and fridge.

Another thing that causes excessive condensation buildup around the door is a door seal that doesn't seal well.

Make sure the door seal contacts the frame around the entire perimeter.
Many use the 'dollar bill' pull test.
Close the door on a dollar bill (at several places around the door) and pull on it to see if there is resistance pulling it out.
No resistance=poor sealing.
