How much condensation is normal?
Last week I bought a new Whirlpool bottom-mount refrigerator. I have noticed what seems to me to be an unusual amount of condensation collecting on the underside of the bottom shelf in the refrigerator door.
For the first few days, I figured it was due to the refrigerator acclimating and I wasn't too concerned. The problem has gotten somewhat better, but it is still quite wet underneath that shelf and just above the seal on that part of the door. A couple times every day I wipe it down, yet it always builds back up again. It gets so wet that if I don't wipe it down, the drops will fall on the floor when you open the door.
We don't have kids opening the door up all the time, and the house is not at all humid. Yet this moisture will build up in just a few hours time, such that a dry papertowel becomes quite damp when I wipe it up.
I read the owner's manual and it says some condensation is normal. Does what I am describing sound normal to you? I really appreciate any insight anyone can offer. Thank you!
