No it's not.
If it is - you need to go talk to someone.
Well, I'm not saying there aren't things I should talk to somebody about....but I'm not concerned about this one.
Let's say you walked into the laundromat and there were 2 washers available. Both appeared clean inside but the top of one was caked with spilled soap, hair, lint, grease, etc. The other was clean. Which one are you going to pick?
Back to the topic:
If your refrigerator has exposed coils either on the back or underneath behind the front bottom grill, keeping them clean and free of dust and pet hair will help extend the life of your fridge. Air flow cools the coils which function to cool the compressor. I've moved fridges out to find the floor scorched black from compressor heat.
If you're getting little puddles of water in front of the refrigerator try removing the bottom drawers and looking for a plugged drain. Many have a drain there that goes to a pan (where it evaporates) and it easily gets plugged with spilled food.
