I have a whirlpool fridge with the freezer drawer on bottom

This answer was rated:

I have a whirlpool fridge with the freezer drawer on bottom and it seems to ice up at top of drawer and around the light inside daily it is humid right now so it is really bad, I have to wipe it daily and scrape off the ice. We have emptied it out and let int dry up for about a week and it was ok for awhile, but starts up again much worse in summer any suggestions?

I,ve told you the problem do you have an answer?

Yes the problem is that warm air is getting into the fridge causing the moisture in the air to condense into frost, the reason for this is likely there is a small gap in the door gasket.

Try warming the door gasket up all the way around with a hair dryer on low heat, This should make the gasket seal up again correctly, if this does not help the problem then you would need to replace the door gasket.

It helped on the fridge door but not the freezer drawer which is really the problem do you have anything further we can do ?
No if using a hair dryer didn't work then you would need to replace the gasket.
