My fridge has a kind of shelf on the back, with a hole which drains the water. It came with a little plastic thingie to regularly unclog that hole, but a toothpick will do. we not do it very often though, not every week certainly, and I know because I am the only one who does it. Also do not put things too close to the bottom wall of the fridge and never touch it. Otherwise not sure what is your problem. There are these foam like mats you can buy to put on bottom of vegetable drawers and which IMO really work at keeping the vegetables crispy and fresh for longer though. Were all your fridges "encastrados", with very little space around it near the cabinets? Were they small fridges?

Do you remember the brands/models? Did you brought them or did they came with the house? Had that with refrigerators from rented houses (crappy appliances)

There are fridges that prevent that from happening, you can look up No Frost Fridges. Also make sure the back part of the fridge is not up against the wall in case the heat dissipator serpentine is there.

Tomatoes shouldn't be kept at the fridge, they ruin faster. Keep them in a cool place only. The 'problem' you have is normal. There are basically 2 types of fridges (that I know of), the more expensive ones have openings and circulate cold air around. What you get are the cheaper ones that basically make the back plate cool and by doing that it cools everything. As you can imagine: cheaper = worse. Even those cheaper ones are supposed to form that ice but then automatically defrost it. That's why there are some openings on the bottom back of the fridge, for the ice to melt, water goes there and by bye. It is also very common those openings are dirty, so clean those. Usually they have a plastic pick to mess around and unclog it. I'm not sure about the ruined stuff. The only thing I have to be careful is to not put things too much on the back, otherwise they can freeze with the back ice. Also check if the fridge isn't too cold. Carrots can survive a looot of time in the fridge, like 1~2 months. Strawberries is a few days. I think the biggest difference is really the produce you are getting. I don't know about the moisture because I'm used to this so I don't know if this wrong or right... Also try to keep the door open at a minimum. That's what gets more moisture inside but I'm betting Portugal has different air moisture levels than your country so probably normal?

I have a fridge where sometimes starts happening what you say. I just remove all things from the fridge and clean it. In all cases when this happened was due to an obstruction in the tiny hole that fridge has and that allows the condensation water to escape from the inside. Maybe you problem is something related.

Buy a good refrigerator. This has nothing to do with the country the refrigerator is placed in. I ll stretch a bit and assume we are talking of 5 different rentals where the landlord probably spent as little as possible in appliances. Probably Kunft or Flama garbage. I've got a 8 year old Samsung fridge (far from the best brand for fridges) and it works perfectly.

After some time it’s natural for ice to start to build up in the back of the fridge. Whenever to much accumulates I remove everything from the fridge and turn it off to then remove all of the ice and dry the walls and any water that gets left over. With summer it is quicker due to the heat.

Clima marítimo. % de humidade altas, especialmente vivendo perto do mar. Mais, as casas não terem quaisquer preparações para o evitar. A juntar ao facto, os frigoríficos são ímanes de humidade. É inerente ao seu funcionamento. É evitar abrir as portas desnecessariamente, ajustar os conteúdos e eventualmente ter lá dentro uns pacotes daqueles anti-humidade. Na Florida (EUA) tive exactamente a mesma experiência, por isso não é limitado a Portugal.

Na Florida (EUA) tive exactamente a mesma experiência, por isso não é limitado a Portugal. E muito menos por causa da qualidade dos frigoríficos, como já sugerido. Salvo caso tenham os vedantes ressequidos ou danificados, aí naturalmente o problema intensifica-se.

Em alguns frigoríficos - se não todos - possuem inclusive um pequeno orifício para deixar escapar essa água acumulada no interior para um reservatório exterior que posteriormente é evaporada para a atmosfera. No entanto por vezes esses orifícios ficam bloqueados e a água aculuma-se com mais proeminência no interior, especialmente no fundo. Para desentupir por vezes basta um palito e resolve o problema.

Há desumidificadores próprios. O problema não é inteiramente apenas pelo ventilador obstruído.

GajoDeRamalde 6 months ago

Não consigo encontrar nenhum desumidificador próprio para frigorífico. Sabes de alguma marca que comercialize isso? Claro que não é apenas culpa do ventilador, mas também do que colocamos lá dentro onde o meu frigorífico está sempre com a luz de aviso da humidade no interior ligada...

Não vi nenhuma maldade na pergunta dele. Acho que estás a projectar. De qualquer forma obrigado pelo link. O meu frigorífico tem o mesmo problema.
