  • Sometimes the doors won't close right and this might be the cause, make sure nothing is blocking the doors to close right.

  • If you live in an area where the humidity is high, that could be the cause. Also, if it is an automatic defrosting model, that could be part of the problem. If food is keeping well, it probably has to do with the humidity levels in your home. Make sure the door is closing all the way. If it's catching on something, it could be keeping it from sealing all the way tight, and that will cause the extra moisture. I have to watch that one with the grandchildren all the time.

  • That is an indicator that the fridge temp has become warmer than the temp of the food. In other words, that your fridge isn't cooling properly. I live in a very, very warm, humid climate (coastal SC), it is definitely not normal to have beads of condensation on food that is properly cooled, regardless of the relative humidity.
