Default 1.8 ft^3 fridge w/ ferm. chamber

I'm planning on building a fermentation chamber using a small mini-fridge as the cooling source. It has no vents on the inside so I believe it's cooled solely by the metal freezer in the top corner.

My question is, do I need to worry about the freezer constantly frosting over and melting?

If you run a temp controller the "freezer" wont get cold enough to freeze. I have the guts of my mini fridge in my chamber and havent had an issue at all
