GE Refrigerator - Freezer Forming Ice

GE Model: GTS22KBP, top freezer model has been forming ice on the interior freezer surface that look like frozen droplets of water. The thermostats are set to the normal settings. What's causing this? The refrigerator is only 6 months old. Thanks for your help.

I really have not ever heard the actual 'why' to this question. But one theoiry I have is that during the defrost cycle, a steamy condition is created and the vapors condense out and refreeze as droplets.

Where is this forming exactly, inside, and how much food do you have packed in the freezer?, to where you can actually see this happening?

Have you placed a thermometer inside to see what the temp is and if the temp is maintaining a near uniform temp during the freeze and defrost cycles?, or are there wild temp swings?

Are you part of a big family where you open and close the freezer door often (like constantly getting ice cream bars and stuff), which could create a vapor condition to refreeze?

Is your freezer door gasket in good shape on all 4 sides and the door seals good without a gap so you can't see into the freezer, due to settling of the unit?
