How to Avoid Frost Build Up

Guide to Avoiding Frost in Your Freezer

Frost build up can make using the freezer more difficult. Here is a checklist of things to do to avoid building up frost in your freezer.

Keeping the door or freezer lid open for a long period of time will allow excess moisture into the Freezer, potentially creating frost. Simply close the freezer door or lid as soon as possible after the food is removed. Be aware the freezer will warm when the lid is open for a long period of time.

If you leave the freezer door open often, be aware that this will allow excess moisture into the freezer, potentially creating frost. For how to reduce how often you use the freezer, follow these tips:

  • Try to get everything you need out of the freezer all at once
  • Keep food organized so it is easy to find
  • Close the lid as soon as the food is removed

Be aware the freezer will warm when the lid is opened often. Verify the Lid is securely closed all the way after adding or removing food.
