Default mini fridge fermenter frosting over!

ok so i built this fermentation chamber a couple of weeks ago and the cooling freezer section keeps growing an overwhelming amount of frost/ice. it was built with the typical mini fridge on the end. any ideas how i can minimize the frost issue?

The chamber likely has an air leak somewhere. Finding and fixing the leak should solve the problem.

I am having a little bit of the same problem, and I think that a leak is the most likely problem with mine as well.
