I have a Danby apartment-sized fridge/freezer, and the main fridge compartment is icing up with crystals near the top, but there's also lots of condensation on the ceiling of the fridge compartment. The freezer appears to be working normal. The water collection tray at the back is full. One technician came to look at it, and couldn't find "the other" air vent, then ghosted on me (when he decided it wouldn't be an easy fix?).

Any suggestions? The unit is about 5 years old and is generally in good condition, apart from this problem which started a month or two ago.

I've uploaded some pictures here:
Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Look for a gap somewhere in the door seal especially the top. No gap, leave the machine plugged in and running and remove the evaporator cover and check the frost pattern on the coils. Take a picture and post it here.

Thanks for the reply. It looks like the main gasket needs replacing but it may no longer be possible to order a replacement. Any suggestions?
Thank again.

Sorry, Danby makes throw away refrigerators. The warranty is one year. If there's a problem, they don't fix it, they replace it. No one carries the parts and there's no way to look it up except maybe a danby site.

Thanks for the info. There's ice crystals forming again at the same air vent. I found some other Danby gaskets for sale, maybe one of them is the same dimensions as mine.

It wasn't easy but I tracked down a replacement gasket through Green Line Appliance Parts. Thanks again for your help.
