Doors open or closed? Fridge/freezer

After use, should you have the fridge and freezer doors open or closed while defrosting and then storage?

Thank you,
Tim

Open. If you keep them closed they can grow mold.

Open when off. Moisture will make a musty odor and cause mold.

Open -- make sure you wipe out the collection tray below the coils in the fridge.

Dry it out and leave it open. There are little clips on the latches of our 12 cu ft so the doors will stay open.

Another vote for "Open And Dry"


A quick cleanup with a 'disinfecting wipe' (no brand names here) is another step to prevent any mold or musty smell.
