ok the first thing to check is your gaskets around doors , make sure there seating thightly all the way around , check the ref. section one and make sure its not hanging down at the very bottom. the moister is comming in from outside ref. somewhere. have you had the doors of for any reason lately? check and make sure its on correctly. let me know Bryan

Gaskets around doors seem to be ok. Never had doors off. Would trying to level refrigerator have anything to do with it. We raised the front on one side so door wouldn't swing way out.

it shouldnt unless theres a space in door somewhere, i just dont know where moister is coming from, do you have any frost on back panel in freezer? maybe its not defrosting correctly. let me know Bryan
