Blocked air vents in your refrigerator could seriously affect your temperature sensitive product.
In order to ensure proper temperature, you need to allow room for proper air flow between the freezer and refrigerator compartments. Cool air enters and exits the refrigerator compartment from the freezer compartment through vents. Depending on your model, these vents are in different locations.
If vents are blocked, airflow will decrease. Temperature and moisture issues may arise due to blocked vents.
Items placed directly in the air flow from the freezer compartment to the refrigerator compartment may freeze!
Blocked Vents could cause the following issues:
- Moisture build-up; or excessive frost
- Temperature issues; inconsistent or fluctuating temperatures
- Freezing of items in the refrigerator compartment: items placed directly in the path of the freezer air flow may freeze
Verify temperature and humidity stability using a digital data logger thermometer.
Data loggers for temperature and humidity are capable of measuring data at defined intervals. These are then stored in an integrated data memory. This involves separate temperature data loggers and humidity data loggers, along with instruments which carry out both measurements.
