We have the same problem, so am curious to hear what others may have for ideas. We want to seal the gap not so much to prevent frost (that will happen anytime you open the refer on a humid day), but to increas efficiency. After a humid night, we find condensation on the cold counter around the lid. One unrelated thing we do to increase efficiency it to use a piece of Reflectix insulation cut to fit the top of the box. We use it like a blanket over the contents of the refer. The difference in cycling is amazing compared to without the blanket. Anyway, very interested to hear of possible solutions to sealing the lid.
